Just dropped in for drinks and to watch the game. Friendly and great atmosphere. Very limited desert menu. If you want to catch a game in the outer banks, this is the place.

My family wanted to a variety of seafood so we tried George's. They had a great variety, and everyone was able to find something they loved. There were plenty of crab legs and prime rib. The salad bar, vegetables, and dessert were also tasty. The service was fantastic, as our glasses were never empty. Will definitely visit again.

Always have to come here just to slam the crabs. Had 8 heaping plates which is about right for me. The rest of the items are average but getting your fill of legs makes it worthy to me.

We've heard good things about Capt. George's. We went around 5 pm on a Friday night and it was already half full. We sampled most of the seafood dishes. We loved the crab legs the best. They had a good selection of salad items, desserts, and non-seafood item as well. We don't eat fried food often, but this was worth... More

A large selection of seafood to choose from. There is stuff for non fish eaters as well. The salad bar was very good. I was stuffed so didn't make it the dessert table, but it did look like a wide variety to choose from. The crab legs, oysters, and shrimp were all very good. The crab leg clusters go quick,... More

Captain George's was the best seafood buffet I have ever been to! The choices are endless and everything I had was very good. Very nice and clean inside and doesn't have that gross smell that most seafood buffet places have. The staff was very polite and more than helpful.

If you enjoy a buffet with a focus on seafood-Capt. George's is an excellent place to enjoy good food. Many people go there to eat the Crab legs and associated other seafood choices. At this Capt.

The buffet had crab claws that people liked and thr oysters were good. Most of the other seafood was poor. It may be a good place for those wanting large quantity of food. One person ordered a shrimp scampi and liked it.
