If your looking for a great lunch for a great price Captain Nance's is the place. The service is outstanding as are the hushpuppies. The view from the dinning room is great.

Took my husband for a birthday lunch. No waiting and we sat by the water. Our waitress was a doll. The hushpuppies are delicious and plentiful. We had the senior meal of scallops and flounder. The scallops were sweet and big. I had fried, my husband had broiled. .. both very good. We'll go back (we live close by in... More

We've eaten at Captain Nance's several times over the years during trips to North Myrtle Beach. The food has been consistently delicious with friendly service. Scallops are especially fresh and succulent, best I've ever had ANYWHERE. Crab cakes and other seafood selections are superb. Calabash, NC is a very nice town with attractive homes and a variety of shops in... More

We had eaten here several months ago and this time the food was better. We had the seniors shrimp and flounder and all was good. Suggest you try this location next trip to the beach.Service was good.

We were hungry after an afternoon on the water. This was close to the dock and turned out to be delicious food. The seafood platters provide some tasty variety. The hushpuppies are wonderful!

We stopped in for a very late lunch, and while the food was good, the atmosphere was great. While we weren't offered any drink refills, the fried clams and fried shrimp were as expected.

Good hushpuppies and fried fish. Service was good. Loved the view of the river and shrimp boats. Usually not a wait time.
