Very pricey - get a coupon! !! Crab legs are poor quality and small, had raw oysters you had to shuck yourself. Staff tried but was stretched waaaayy too thin to keep up.

I spent my vacation in Myrtle Beach. Spring break was awesome. Even in April the area is amazing. We stopped at Captain Benjamin as it was located at the heart of the city, so close to the beach, park and city activities. At the beginning we were very surprised checking the price, however after the dinner we were so satisfied... More

We ate here the first night we arrived in Myrtle Beach. The food looked like it had been sitting there for more than a few hours, very unappealing. I just stuck with the peel and eat shrimp which wasn't bad. This restaurant was not cheap. When you are paying almost $30.00 a plate you best believe I better have some... More

Reviews were mixed, so we werent sure what to expect. When we went, adult dinner was $29.99. Kids were $5.99 and we got one child for free. Very large selection of seafood, nice salad bar, ample desserts. We felt it was worth the money!

The boast having 170 or so items on their buffet. The problem with that is the size of the place...seats hundreds therefore they cook their food in crazy quantity, which means some of the items can sit there for quite some time and others disappear quickly. So here's the problem as I see it. I'm going to spend $34 on... More

Do you want all sorts of seafood, from mussels to clams to oysters to crab legs? And do you want meatloaf and fried chicken and hush puppies? Well this place does it all, right up to the cookies, cakes and ice cream. The beauty of this buffet is that you can try something you've always wanted to try but didn't... More
