“Breakfast Buffet”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We had the breakfast buffet. The staff was very kind & attentive. The food was good. We had no complaints about anything. The food was fresh & hot. They had scrambled eggs, all kinds of meat, grits, gravy, breads, fruit, & more.

“NOT CLEAN, BELOW PAR FOOD”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

This place just felt greasy--from the moment I pulled out my chair. Food was OK, but nothing to write home about. Standard buffet fare, but not at all appetizing. Go somewhere else!

“Nice buffet, nice price”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

The seafood buffet was $19.99 per person, a big improvement over Capt. George's in Williamsburg. The variety was plentiful and fresh. They offer crablegs for an extra ten bucks, which is fine for whoever is into crablegs. Speaking of crabs. the crabcakes and deviled crab weren't too spicy, a definite plus!

“Yuk!”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Skippers Cove changed their name to Captian AJ's. Same owner, same building and same lousy food. Why would a business change their name? Just read some of the other reviews on this site and other sites. The food is terrible and they have been receiving bad reviews so they changed names. Too bad they didn't change the quality of the food. The fish was mushy with no taste. The crab cakes tasted like cardboard. Seven items listed in vacation magazines were not on the menu. Crab legs were extra. Don't make the same mistake we did. Go somewhere else. Avoid this place like the plague!

“Over priced and scarey”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

The buffett was not all that good. The seafood was so-so and the salad bar was minimal. Service was typical; middle aged woman from somewhere else who was more worried about lighting up a Marlboro than getting you tea.
Cost was high for what you got.
