Great mom and pop place!

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... read 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.

Lot's of locals eat here. I love Haddock and they seem to specialize in haddock dishes but everything I have ever ordered here has been good. I usually get the Captains Haddock Dinner. They have a full bar. Service is good but not real large and they don't take reservations.

GREAT Seafood (Haddock is superb). Key lime pie is a favorite. Husband and I frequent often as it is close and we love the menu and prices. Staff is awesome.
