One of our routine stops on our annual excursion to the OBX. A good selection of foods. The offerings of seafood are decent, as well as other various foods. The kitchen does a good job of keeping the crab legs well stocked. A well portioned dessert bar also. What impresses me is that given the volume of people who they... More

The buffet is amazing and even though I don't eat seafood always has plenty of options for my taste. The bar menu is another great option. The drinks are great and the bartenders are awesome. I will definitely sit at the bar next time. I love this place.

My husband and I have ate at the Williamsburg and Virginia Beach, VA., locations many times and always love each dining experience there. We were sure that the OBX location would offer the same. The atmosphere was beautiful and romantic. The service was great and this is why I give three stars for my review. The food was okay but... More

We did not stop in here for the buffet but were glad we opted for it. Actually, the menu is structured to encourage you to eat at the buffet and you should go for it. Amazing variety, all tasty, hot and delicious. The staff, from the waitress to the folks maintaining the buffet are very friendly and helpful. While we... More

I love seafood and live at the beach so when Captain George's opened I told my significant other we had to go there. So I've been twice in all the years it has been open. Cons: Fresh seafood is best and this stuff is farmed/caught far away and shipped. I support our local fisheries and they are not in the... More
