This place is fantastic. We have been here every year since it opened. Crabs delicious, oysters too. This is the best buffet in North myrtle. Don't forget the senior discount. We bring all our visiting friends and family here every year in March and April.

Not that the food was terrible but $80 for two people to eat fish and chicken tenders is to much money! Yes I know they have seafood,however the king crab legs had no flavor and where over cooked, as were the scallops and fish.

Their food is awesome with all kinds of choices and they make sure it's just the way you want it, though you might want to bring extra $40 with you for it's like $30-$35 for the buffet but it was still very good!

We have a ship in the front, but the restaurant isn't shaped like one. That would be cool though!

Description
Knowing there are many Myrtle Beach area seafood buffets, we certainly appreciate that you are considering Captain Jack's Seafood Buffet on Kings Highway in North Myrtle Beach. Captain Jack's Seafood Buffet does not claim to be a maritime museum, nor the world's largest seafood buffet. Those are claims we leave to others. We do promise to provide our guests with a generous, delicious meal that reflects a level of quality you would never expect at a seafood buffet. We are proud to have Jimmy Gilberto, a 30-year veteran of Myrtle Beach buffet restaurants, as our executive chef. We've coaxed him out of retirement along with his proven recipes and those fabulous desserts. Our dedicated staff, management and ownership welcome you with true southern hospitality. Collectively, we are committed to making your dining experience memorable and a highlight of your Myrtle Beach vacation. We hope to see you soon.
