Great place to eat. Service was good too. Decent variety of food. The crab legs were hot, well seasoned and were continuously stocked on the buffet.

Don’t go. $50 for one person for the food they have is absurd. Crab was cold, let alone not even good. Bread was extremely hard. People inside don’t know how to look where they’re walking, including workers, overall an awful experience.

The crab legs are the greatest. Everything else is just so so. You’ll definitely get your moneys worth if you just eat the crab.

We came to Captain Benjamin's because of the advertising that promoted multiple menu items (over 170). They did not disappoint. The food was outstanding. The # 1 restaurant in the area was not nearly as good as Captain Benjamin's. The outside appearance of the building...may be the turnoff as it does not look that big. They have an actual raw bar that is exceptional. One suggestion: Increase diversity in your staffing. This is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars.More

There are a ton of seafood buffets in Myrtle Beach but I highly recommend Captain Benjamins. OK, the price is steep, but if your a seafood lover, then that price is nothing for what you going to get. I've been to buffets where you literally...have to be cut throat to get the crab legs, here they had them every time I went up. Items that were low were quickly filled up. DO NOT fill your stomach with the hush puppies, they were good but the crab is way better. There were reviews on how bad the price was, but realistically for all you can eat seafood $50 is reasonable, if you don't like seafood they had other options for you, but not as much as the seafood. This has to be my favorite place we went to the entire time we were in the area. The wait staff was super friendly.More

We have eaten at several all you can eat seafood buffets in Myrtle in North Myrtle Beach. This is by far the best around. The food is made of fresh to serve and they do not let their food sit there on the Buffay for...long periods of time, the crab legs were great. The frog legs and crawfish was excellent. They have a wonderful salad bar I highly recommend.More
