The food was mostly good. I went specifically for the crab legs. They started out great and went downhill. The place was nice and clean. Over priced and over hyped, but not bad.

I have been going here for years found it many years ago in a trip to the otter banks. With a stop at Williamsburg to see some historical sites. It's fantastic

As a family we spent Easter dinner at this establishment. It was a tremendous dining experience. If you are a seafood and fish lover then this is a must eat place when visiting the greater Williamsburg area. My family left feeling satisfied and determined to visit again upon our next long weekend getaway.

Some day I will learn not to overeat at Captain George's. The food is so darned good and plentiful. Never dissappointed. Alot of variety beyond the seafood choices. Something for everyone. If you pull up and see a long line, don't be discouraged. Get in line! It moves quickly. Worth the wait. Expect to pay $40/person more if having anything... More

Tons of sea food choices the only one that I am truly missing and love to be in the menu are calamaries...oysters, crab legs which is everybody's favorite except me, different kind of shells, clams, fishes...also with salad bar and different choices for desserts with soft serve ice cream for kids and adults alike...good service, a little pricey not expecting...

Recommend getting there early. Lines outside and inside restaurant gets pretty long. Food was good and replenished often.

Good seafood buffet with fresh food flowing all night. Lots of variety of fish, seafood, sides, and desserts. Price is up there, but worth it to try a little of everything.

We meet our son there frequently because it's the best place to meet halfway. We love going here because they have such a variety and in our opinion, the BEST crab legs around!
