We were there on July 15th around 8:00. We waited about 25 minutes to be seated, We had a party of 8 so that's to be expected. I thought the crab legs and steaks were great, the rest of the food was just average. It is way over priced at $30 a pop but hey the place is packed so... More

We were so excited to find a buffet that served crab legs and other seafood. Boy, we were disappointed. The buffet was nothing better than any other chain buffet (i.e.- Ryan's, Golden Corral, etc.) The food was bland, nothing stood out- crab legs were good, what little we were able to eat of them, every time we visited the bar...

The crab legs all you can eat was the obvious feature to this place. The cafeteria style sets up the usual issues with this style.Waiting on the good stuff to be restocked. The sides sit around under heat lamps. The rest is simply average and at $30 per head you over indulge to feel like you are not paying too... More

At triple the price of most buffets, it is really nothing special. Only thing they have going is crab legs. We were very disappointed in quality and selection for a whopping seventy eight dollars for two of us!! This was two buffets and two sodas. I would pass this up unless you can eat three or four pounds of crab... More

We visited Capt. Jack's on a Thursday evening. Arriving at around 5:00 we had a 25 minute wait for the two of us, which was within the quoted wait time. While waiting they have a full bar and you can take your drink outside to wait with a little more elbow room. Typical drink prices. Once seated the service was... More

I have heard great things about Captain Jacks and it was a must that we ate here. I was delish, the crab legs were meaty. There were so many varieties of items to choose from! Get there early, we got there about 4 pm, and the crowd started coming shortly after. Great for the family and I was happy to... More

We drove all the way down from Georgia to eat at Captain Jacks. The crab legs was better than i have ever had in my life. They only serve big #1 Alaskan snow crab legs and they always have hundreds on the bar ready to eat. The fried oysters was hot big and plump, and the rest of the food... More
