Had a late dinner and rushed to eat by staff because they shut doors for buffet at 9 pm sharp! Food quality was not good. Would not recommend for the price.

This was a great experience eating every type of seafood possible. Crab legs, oysters and clams were the specialties. They have several choices for non-seafood lovers as well. If you want something off the menu, and not the $30+ buffet, the wait is a bit long. Dessert selections from the buffet were very good.

This might have been our favorite restaurant during our stay in the Outer Banks. However if you don't like seafood, don't bother going here. The buffet seems a little pricey, but you get your money's worth in the QUALITY and selection of items. This is not your typical buffet. First and foremost, this is a fairly classy establishment from decor,... More

As with most of the seafood buffets near the beach, it can get a little expensive. The food was very good, and trying to make room to taste everything was quite challenging. The waiting staff was good to keep your drinks filled and to remove the used dishes off of the table. And most importantly, the place was very clean... More

My sister and I were on one of our annual getaways to the beach and definitely wanted some seafood. I knew from past visits that Captain George's in the OBX was one of the best places to go. If you love crablegs like we do, you need to pay them a visit! Makes me want crablegs now just remembering that... More

I have eaten at a few different Captain George's restaurants and all have been excellent. The choice of seafood was fantastic and there were plenty of other choices is you did not want to eat sea food. It was a buffet style restaurant and all entries I tried tasted fresh and great.

Had been to another seafood buffet down the road and Captain George's beats it hands down! Very large selection of seafood and stuff that's not seafood too! Food was hot, good and plentiful. Buffet trays were always being refilled! Crab legs were cooked to perfection. So many choices! Service was excellent! Our soft drinks got down 1/2 way, and a... More

When visiting the OBX, Captain Georges is our first stop on the way to Hatteras Island. The food and service are extraordinary. On our first visit, the server brought my husband an order of clam strips specially made for him because they weren't on the buffet...over the top and completely appreciated.

While the crab legs and soft shell crabs were nice, the rest of the food was average and too expensive for a buffet, however, the service and the atmosphere was very nice.l
