I ate dinner at Captain Benjamin's last weekend and loved the food. The variety was unbelievable and everything was hot & tasty. The crab legs were delicious. I would certainly recommend this place for anyone.

I am not real crazy about seafood, but my girlfriend is. I tried just about everything on the buffet and it all tasted great. The deviled crab and fried scallops I couldn't get enough of. Even the fruit on the dessert bar was fresh and flavorful. It is usually tough to get good ripe fruit on a buffet. Even the... More

We have been going to Capt' Benjamin's Seafood every summer for about 6 years now. The wiat is always pretty long (1hr+) no matter what time you go in the summer evenings but they have PLENTY to do while you wait. Out back there is a huge porch with swings, checkers, and cornhole games for adults and youth. Downstairs they... More

The food was nasty, especially for $27 per person. I think we should have gone to Bennett's, but since Benjamin's was the first one we saw, it was obvious that we turned into the wrong parking lot. Just yuck!

Although this is a seafood restaurant, there is something for everyone. The selection is amazing and the seafood is cooked perfectly. I was very surprised as we have had some bad experiences with buffet style food but this place did not disappoint. It is a bit pricy if you have children that are picky eaters but great for the adults.

The 174 items on the buffet gave everyone in my group the option to have exactly what we wanted. We were never rushed during our meal and we thorughly enjoyed the experience.

Get your 'early bird' discount coupon, but even then, overpriced UNLESS all you want to do is eat crab legs.

This was our family's first trip to Captain Benjamin's. When we pulled up we were a little discouraged by the huge crowds standing outside, it was unexpected as it was early Tuesday afternoon. We decided to stick around and we are so glad we did. The restaurant itself seems pretty old and outdated. It's a huge space and a little... More

Six of us ate at this restaurant a 5:30 pm on Thursday, 7/17/14. We didn't have to wait. Buffet was full of lots of delicious, fresh seafood. It is on the expensive side, and they do not accept coupons on your phone. If you have a coupon, make sure you've printed it out or have some sort of hardcopy.

Gross seafood buffet - overwhelming assortment of overcooked or fried seafood. The ONLY plus to this place is the limitless amount of crablegs - my son and his teammates ate their weight in crablegs and were very happy :).
