Good food as always, not so great service.

I've been to Captain Georges at other places, countless times. It's always such a wonderful experience and the food is superb each time. At this location; however, the staff were rude! Even the managers seemed irritated at just about everything. It was clear they just wanted you to eat, pay and... read more

Can't say enough about our server Ashley. On top of clearing plates and refills with a bright smile and personality. Nice variety of items that were all okay. What surprised us most was the other diners grabbing at food items before staff could refill the pans. It was extremely busy when we were there and the kitchen staff kept up... More

Our family of four wanted some seafood-a lot of it! After reading the reviews online, we stopped by Cpt. George's. It's a big facility and they move the line pretty fast. The highlights-crab legs, mussels, clams. They have a small salad bar, prime rib, lots of seafood and lots of desserts. They are very busy. If you can afford about... More

The food was great and for the money, you won't get a better deal. Get there well before 5 pm unless you want to wait to be seated. Long line to be seated if you arrive after 5 pm.

All you can eat crab legs, shrimp, fried oysters, and a whole lot more. Unlike some AYCE seafood places I've been, Capt Georges never came close to running out of crab legs. There's about 4 different stations that you can get them at. They draw in big crowds, but even so, the wait was only about 20 minutes.

Very nice setting and very clean. Not a large selection, considering that it is a buffet. The desserts look great but I didn't think they tasted very good

Went to have the buffet, there were a lot of things to choose from if you like seafood, but for me, there were not enough other choices to warrant the price. The prime rib was the best thing I ate, but just like everything else the food was cold. Save room for the chocolate chip cookies, they were great!

We have been to the Virginia Beach Captain George's, so we knew what to expect for food, wait time, etc., but we had no idea what we were getting into when we arrived at this location. We waited over two hours to get a table. We would have gone elsewhere for food but the majority of our family members wanted... More

I'm not going to lie, the food is pretty good. Maybe better than good, but $32 per person is a complete rip off. Also, if they are about 1.5 hours away from closing, the food seems to be replenished at a snails pace. Service was below average and the server had entitlement issues.
