Food was good but seemed to be higher priced than some of their competitors. The crab legs almost made up for the price

The buffet was broad....but the food on it was so so. We went during the week, and maybe too much was overcooked, but we arrived at 6 for dinner. The raw bar was way too "fragrant" and made you think something really died there! Too costly for the quality.

We went here for lunch. Full buffet including all you can eat snow crab legs. We got the early bird special. Waitress was attentive, the clean-up crew did a good job and even swept the floor after people left. The bathroom was very clean! Food was tasty and I was in a food coma for about 6 hours. It had...

My husband and I visited Captain Benjamin's Calabash Seafood buffet while on vacation. We had the all-you-can-eat crab legs and seafood buffet. There was only one type of crab, but it was good.

Seafood lovers will enjoy this buffet. There are ample non-seafood selections as well. Buffet is large with many items. Restaurant is clean, staff is friendly. Don't expect "fresh" seafood - it's not that kind of place, but as buffets go this one was good.

Where to begin... I'll get to the point. We went there for the crab legs buffet dinner and left there vowing never to return. The crab legs were cold, old, and tasteless.
