Wonderful Crab Legs

The buffet was $31 before a coupon. If you are going for crab legs then this is the place. I was impressed with the wonderful taste of the crab legs and honestly that was worth the money. The rest of the food was ok. I went up several times and the items I wanted were gone. They do need to... read more

My friend wanted to try the crab legs so we decided to do the buffet. I'm not a real lover of seafood but went with him. Paid $31.95 pp Was not impressed with any of it. The best part was the hush puppies they give you when you are seated. For seniors they only take off $5. I noticed most... More

Buffet was $31 a person. Plenty of crab legs which were pretty good. The rest of the buffet was bad to horrible. Even the deserts tasted like crap which is hard to accomplish. The soft serve ice cream tasted like glue. Service was nice. Plenty of things for kids to look at.

Captain Benjamin's is a staple at Myrtle Beach. Central location with many attractions nearby. You can see kid's ride the train while you dine. There is a variety of delicious foods with seafood being the specialty. A little pricey, but worth it.The interior is newly remodeled and bright. Great dining experience!

Our first choice was closed, so we tried dinner here. Lots of hot yummy crab legs. The big surprise was the tasty hush puppies. Very yummy. The Chardonnay was good at $5 a glass. Shrimp was also tasty. Get in line when they are refilling the buffet trays for hot fresh food. Raw oysters were good, but I couldn't find... More

Never had any issues here. There is always hot food on the buffet...always had a great waitress...always left with a full stomach. 1 minor complaint is that the meat at the cutting station always seems to be dry. I had the roast beef last time and it was almost impossible to eat a while piece.

This restaurant had a buffet stocked with sea scallops, any kind of shrimp that you wanted, oysters Rockefeller, tuna steaks, ribs, crab legs and so many other great items! Everything was awesome! We will go there again. It is near the pavilion. Worth the trip!
