Good find. Not meaning to we got there early enough for the discount on the buffet. Husband got the buffet and loved everything except the roasted potato wedges. I ordered off the menu with crab cakes.....best I have ever had! The portions on my dinner were huge. I ate twice off it with more... read more

A must stop while in this area. Great food and prices. The service is always fantastic. If you like crabs legs; then this is the stop for you. Wonderful at all times.

This restaurant was highly recommended and the quality of the crab claws and Norfolk special dishes met expectations. However, some of the food was too fishy (clams) and over cooked (fish from steam tables). Nice selection of desserts, but baklava was dry. I won't go back.

If I could leave a negative star rating, I would! We took our kids to the outer banks for their very first beach trip. We wanted a good seafood buffet and this place was recommended by our hotel (that was the only bad thing our hotel did while we were there)! All of the food was way overcooked! Someone in... More

While this Captain Georges didn't have as many choices as the one in Myrtle Beach it was still great seafood. The shrimp was lightly coated and perfectly seasoned, the scallops were wonderful. I am not a crab eater but my partner is and she said the crab was fresh and cooked just right. They had crawfish, fried oysters, crabcakes and... More

In Duck on Spring break with the Family, We all love crab legs and this was the best looking option according to trip advisor. I like to eat a lot of crab legs and don't want to be limited by the server bringing me another helping. Thus, the buffet. Crab legs were constantly "stocked" on the buffet, nice and hot.... More

This is the second seafood buffet I tried at OBX and I am not a typical buffet goer..... they are just not for me. However, most OBX restaurants will charge about $25 for a plate of seafood at most OBX restaurants, so for a few more dollars you can go to the buffet and try a little of everything. I'm... More

We were in the mood for seafood and headed toward the coast. Looked for a restaurant with good reviews and found this one. Thank you tripadvisor! We are glad we came here. The food was fresh tasting and good. The customer service was great and we are planning on returning sometime soon.
