Good visit-meal-all you can eat

Variety was fantastic, food fresh. all you can eat of whatever you want. little expensive, especially if you are not a big eater. No shortage of desserts either.

Ate @ Benjamin's Calabash Seafood Restaurant in June. We had 3 children with us who did not like seafood. To our surprise, the buffet had several kid friendly items.....enough to fill them up. Our seafood was delicious and there were lots to choose from.

We typically don't go to buffets. This was highly recommended so we gave it a try. It is expensive for the quality of food. We are not huge eaters and probably would not go back considering all the options here. The wait staff is great! Very attentive and the have a play area do parents can finish meal in peace!

...I would give this this place the edge in going the extra mile in staying with the theme in decor. Great job with the crab legs. This place will fit the bill for what 90% of most people want in a large seafood buffet. They did a better than average job with non-seafood as well.

This buffet had a great variety of things to try. The seafood was very fresh and there was plenty of it. They also did offer a menu for those who do not care much for seafood or do not want to take out a loan just to buy dinner.

I was at Captain Benjamin's previously and decided to visit again. I was very surprised see the renovation and new fresh style of the buffet. As last time the service is the best and food so delicious, especially my favorite crab legs!!!

We went in to this seafood buffet not knowing the prices upfront. The buffet was $29.99 per adult and 14.99 per child. For my family this was very expensive considering our children don't eat enough to justify paying $14.99 a child. My fiance does not eat crab legs so this was an expensive meal for him. I ended up ordering... More

I loved the food! The buffet had a good variety of different cuts of fish fillets. The Grouper and the Rock Crab legs were especially delicious! The fish was so good that when I went back for my second plate I did not get crab legs (which were also delicious)! As far as service goes my waiter, Jay, was awesome!... More
