Good place to try - food is good, prices reasonable, service fast.

Good choice for fast service and good food. I was looking for a replacement for the Island Café and Deli that closed in 2014/15. Capt. John's is very close. The place is cozy and not an oversized fish place that is all too common. The prices are very reasonable for the beach. We (Papaw and two... read more

This small restaurant is not fancy, but it is clean, has good atmosphere, attentive wait staff and best of all; great seafood. The atmosphere is casual and the prices are mid-range for the area of Litchfield Beach on Pawley's Island. The service was fast and friendly. The food was well prepared and tasted great.

Good food little pricey. The seafood was good and the oysters were delicious. Pricey for us but I guess not by Myrtle Beach prices

My boyfriend and I went to Myrtle Beach to do some shopping at Broadway at the Beach. We had every intention on eating there but the wait times were ridiculous, 4 hours?! Crazy! We then planned on eating somewhere in Myrtle but every place we tried had a wait for a table of 2 well over an hour so we... More

Best haddock sandwich you can find. Nice folks and laid back atmosphere. Never had a bad meal, lemon pepper haddock is outstanding for supper but can't beat fried fish sandwich

We like this place. Travel to the area once/twice a year. Always eat here...That being said. Going to skip this restaurant next time. Entrees/sandwiches are always good...Calamari was mushy/not good. Clam chowder was ok/did not taste like clam chowder?!...the food comes out too fast. I'd like to enjoy my app./salad b4 entree comes...always feel rushed. Service could have been better.... More

We had a 10% off coupon for Captain John's Seafood Grille and decided to take one of our kids out for a meal by himself (wit just mom and dad) and we are very happy to have selected this restaurant. As always, we wanted seafood as we are staying on the beach and we don't reside here year round. It... More

Based on a recommendation from a local, we decided to try Captain John's Seafood Grill. Yum. The staff was friendly, the food was hot and fresh and prices were reasonable. I tried the crab cake meal and my kids had the chicken fingers/shrimp meal. I will say that the kids meals were heavy on the fries and light on the... More

Good food, came quick and hot. Did not have to wait for a table on a Saturday night. Kids liked the fish nuggets. In and out in less than an hour.
