“Fantastic lunch, beautiful oceanfront location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is our favorite seafood restaurant at Myrtle Beach! The location is perfect, right on the beach. The atmosphere of the 1930s house is wonderful and authentic, unlike most places at the beach. Service is always good, and the food is delicious - we haven't tried anything we didn't like. To avoid the crowds, we like to go for a late lunch.

“The food was poor. Quality. Could not eat the scallops or the jambalaya”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Service was ok. The scallops tasted like iodine. Jambalaya used to be great, but was awful. The hush puppies were mediocre. Rice did not taste like dirty rice. It wAs more like Indian rice. Should have bought a couple of boxes of zattarains.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

I ate at Sea Captain's House for lunch with my Mom and my sister, and we were all very impressed. The service was pretty good, the atmosphere was very nice (quiet and friendly), the building is a very cool old beach house from the 1930s, and the food is excellent. My Mom and I ordered the She Crab Soup, which was the best that I've ever had, and my sister ordered a shrimp cocktail which she said was very good. I got an oyster cocktail also, but I'm not a huge fan of oysters, so personally I thought it was just ok. The hushpuppies that you get instead of bread are a nice southern touch as well. Overall, I'd highly reccomend it to anyone except families with very young children, because it's a semi-formal atmosphere.

“Good Place for Lunch or Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

The staff is professional and friendly. Food is on the pricier side, but good quality and good portion size. Consistently good for both our trips to MB in the past two years.
