The 174 items on the buffet gave everyone in my group the option to have exactly what we wanted. We were never rushed during our meal and we thorughly enjoyed the experience.

Get your 'early bird' discount coupon, but even then, overpriced UNLESS all you want to do is eat crab legs.

This was our family's first trip to Captain Benjamin's. When we pulled up we were a little discouraged by the huge crowds standing outside, it was unexpected as it was early Tuesday afternoon. We decided to stick around and we are so glad we did. The restaurant itself seems pretty old and outdated. It's a huge space and a little overwhelming because of the huge selection of food but that was great because there was something for everyone; even for our picky eaters and those who weren't big fans of seafood. The price wasn't bad, the service was great, the drinks from the bar were good, the crab legs were delicious, and the surprise favorite of the night...The tomato pie!!

Six of us ate at this restaurant a 5:30 pm on Thursday, 7/17/14. We didn't have to wait. Buffet was full of lots of delicious, fresh seafood. It is on the expensive side, and they do not accept coupons on your phone. If you have a coupon, make sure you've printed it out or have some sort of hardcopy.

Gross seafood buffet - overwhelming assortment of overcooked or fried seafood. The ONLY plus to this place is the limitless amount of crablegs - my son and his teammates ate their weight in crablegs and were very happy :).
