After golf

We were in this past Sunday after golf and surprised at the BOGO which made our day. My wife had ribs which could have fed a family and I had the seafood platter that lead to surf and turf the following night. The total bill was under $50 that included a decent bottle of wine, how could beat it... read more

First off if you're tired of beachy- beach interior,I will say that Capt Daves steps up the decor for a nicer lunch or evening out with your special someone! Service was friendly and very courteous. We had the Calamari as an appetizer to start and followed up with a Shrimp Po Boy and a huge bowl of Seafood Gumbo. Yum!

Well decorated, beautiful atmosphere, excellent and polite service. Had a relaxing lunch and ordered the gumbo with my wife. Perfect for a rainy day. There was also a patio for those days when the weather is a little nicer. I would recomend to anyone for lunch and dinner.

Worth the short drive if you are staying, at or near Myrtle Beach. Happy hour drinks at half price. During the winter months, pay full price for the 1 st entree get 2nd FREE a real two for the price of one. Outstanding sea food items include grilled scallops, fried shrimp, grouper, great seating, very friendly staff, lots of parking.... More

We enjoyed a delicious seafood dinner at Captain Daves Dockside Restaurant. They run a bogo special on dinner entrees Sunday-Thursday through February so it seemed like a perfect time to give them a try. The hush puppies with raspberry butter was delicious with the hush puppies being warm and freshly made. I enjoyed seared scallops--delicious and so fresh. My husband... More

A large group of out of town relatives stopped here for lunch. All thought their food was great and the crab cakes were quite possibly the best I've ever eaten. All crab. No fillers. A very friendly waitress and wonderful view out the windows to top it off.

Seafood was well prepared and served. We enjoyed the seared scallops and fried seafood combinations. We had two small children with us and they did just fine with the chicken strips. Our server was Kendall and she was charming.

We were told that Captain Dave's has a buy one get one special weekdays (Monday- Thursday), so we went there Monday evening and had a wonderful dinner. We were so impressed that we returned on Thursday and again we had a fantastic meal. Both times we had Joan as our server and she is very attentive, friendly, and easy going.... More
