The crab legs are the greatest. Everything else is just so so. You’ll definitely get your moneys worth if you just eat the crab.

The food is very good. But, I would suggest having a lower price for those not eating crab legs. A lot of variety.

We came to Captain Benjamin's because of the advertising that promoted multiple menu items (over 170). They did not disappoint. The food was outstanding. The # 1 restaurant in the area was not nearly as good as Captain Benjamin's. The outside appearance of the building...may be the turnoff as it does not look that big. They have an actual raw bar that is exceptional. One suggestion: Increase diversity in your staffing. This is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars.More

There are a ton of seafood buffets in Myrtle Beach but I highly recommend Captain Benjamins. OK, the price is steep, but if your a seafood lover, then that price is nothing for what you going to get. I've been to buffets where you literally...have to be cut throat to get the crab legs, here they had them every time I went up. Items that were low were quickly filled up. DO NOT fill your stomach with the hush puppies, they were good but the crab is way better. There were reviews on how bad the price was, but realistically for all you can eat seafood $50 is reasonable, if you don't like seafood they had other options for you, but not as much as the seafood. This has to be my favorite place we went to the entire time we were in the area. The wait staff was super friendly.More

We have eaten at several all you can eat seafood buffets in Myrtle in North Myrtle Beach. This is by far the best around. The food is made of fresh to serve and they do not let their food sit there on the Buffay for...long periods of time, the crab legs were great. The frog legs and crawfish was excellent. They have a wonderful salad bar I highly recommend.More

Not for the faint of heart. You have to fast two-three days before going here. The selections are fresh, frequently updated, served hot. Go. Take your time. Enjoy the bounty.

This was our second time there so I knew exactly what to expect. I was more impressed this time with our visit. The food was great and the bars were loaded with good food. The service was awesome! Our server was amazing. She went out...of her way to make us feel comfortable. She was very nice to my children as well and that means a lot with a large family. In a world where there are a lot of negative reviews, I want to make sure that I give credit for good service.More

We wanted an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet. We're at the beach, you know? The variety worked in its favor. Has a lot. And stuff folk want. But it seemed as if this was the stuff that was cooked for lunch. We were there around 2 p.m....I won't sit here and fire all cannons at them. Shrimp was OK-ish. Crab legs were good first go 'round, not so good on a second trip. Cooked too long to make the shells soft. Our waitress of a Russian-Ukraine background (accent) was awesome. Very attentive. A couple parked near out table after our own arrival left as soon as they sat down. Wifey wanted a steak or something..... Capt. Benjamin's Seafood...? I didn't see Calabash Steak on the menu..... poor husband. I hope he got his seafood fix. Overall, the food was brought to the troughs hot and .... often. But it still had that "I've been working on my coldness, all the live long day...." taste. If there is absolutely no where else to go, I'll do a Frogmore Stew at the campsite.More
