“Even Better Today than We Remembered”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

It has been about 15 years since we last visited SCH. It has always been good and the location (oceanfront) and view are hard to beat. We have not been to downtown Myrtle Beach for a long time...until today when visited the SCH for a late lunch. It was outstanding, start to finish. Our server, Nicole, was pleasant and professional. We were at one of 4 tables in her station seated almost at once. No problem for her. We enjoyed she crab soup and the crab cake appetizer. My spouse followed with shrimp and grits that she believes are the best she has had (including those she has enjoyed during past visits to Charleston). I had the seafood platter. I ordered it fried which is not my usual choice because I do not like heavy breading. This dish was lightly breaded and absolutely delicious. I enjoyed sides of green beans and cheesy grits. We finished up with homemade key lime pie. Prices were very reasonable for the quality and considering the resort location, at least for lunch. We probably won't frequent downtown Myrtle Beach BUT we plan to make the drive back to the Sea Captains House if we are anywhere in the vicinity.

“Excellent service & seafood!”

Abby is the absolute best waitress. Very down to earth and familiar with the menu. I ordered what she recommended. Spot on. Fresh grouper was amazing.

“Delicious seafood with a great view.”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We all had great meals, and apps. The waitress was a bit frazzled and forgot some of our items but made up for her oversight with friendliness. The food was delicious.

“Dinner overlooking the ocean.”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Great oceanfront seafood resturant. The view is one of the best on the beach. Good food and service, but quite expensive.

“old school dining at it's best”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

You walk in and just know that they are proud of this place and treat it with respect. This is what it was like to dine when we were kids in the 60's and early 70's.
We've gone twice for lunch and it's been great both times. Great service and a fun place to let your mind wander to simpler times but not second rate food at all. Great job!! I got the flounder and my wife the shrimp salad. They serve fresh hot hushpuppies with the meal and they are dessert in themselves.
