Seafood
 Sea Captains House is one of the oldest restaurants on the Grand Strand and has been deeply rooted in Myrtle Beach history for over 5 decades now. The stories of families coming here year after year is what keeps us inspired to continuously better our service and food quality.

Our dedication to quality has been the foundation on which we have preserved our heritage. To preserve old traditions, but also remain competitive in today’s time, we are dedicated to offering local and always “Be Fresh” products.

 Whether it is using local farmers for produce or outsourcing our seafood purchases to local fisherman, we strive to do business with natives and locals. We believe the Carolina’s have some of the best products and traditions in the world, which we want to convey to our guests.

 Traditions cannot be carried on without a faithful and enthusiastic clientele, and for that we thank you.

This place states it was established in 1962 and it fees like it probably has not changed since then. Food was very bland overall. This place is very dated. The only reason this place exists is because it’s on the water but we had a poor view even for our anniversary. Quite disappointed wouldn’t go back

The restaurant was just ok. We asked for a kid cup and he brought us coffee cups which we thought was strange. Food was what I would expect at any chain restaurant, didn’t taste like quality seafood.

First time dining at the Sea Captain’s Table. It was Father’s Day. We all loved the food that we ordered! Delicious hush puppies! We had a seat by the window. A beautiful view as we enjoyed our meal and watched the full moon rise over the ocean. Loved the atmosphere! We will definitely visit this restaurant again!

We went to the sea captains house for Father’s Day dinner. We had a fabulous time. The food was outstanding, the drinks were delicious, the view was great, and the service was spot on by bartenders, servers, and waitress. The bartender outside made napkin roses for both our girls while we waited for our reservation to be called. We went on a recommendation from friends and were able to get a reservation on opentable 3 days before! We had an amazing time!

This restaurant was one of our top two when we were here a few years ago. I don’t think I will return after this trip. It has definitely gone down in food quality since our last visit and the noise level and crowded bar and waiting area are so loud we couldn’t talk to each other. The wait staff was doing their best to handle the crowd but people were complaining about the long waits and demanding compensation. It appears that the restaurant accepted too many reservations and didn’t have the kitchen or the wait staff to handle the crowd.

The staff at the restaurant were nice. However the front desk and check -in desk area was very chaotic-should look into a better system. I appreciate the birthday decor placed on the table. Now the food... they don't have crab legs on the menu, which is odd. The food we ordered inconsistent-either a little overcooked (scallops and flounder) or undercooked (crab cakes, crab filling in stuffed flounder) and yes there ks lottle to no seasoning so the food is bland. I think they mean well and the intent of the menu choices is good but the execution is poor. Once they get better chefs, they will be really good.

Food was good, but not outstanding. Shrimp and Grits was very bland. Fried Shrimp platter was good, but not the best I have ever had. Will try again in the future as I feel like it may have just been an off night. Past visits were much better!

One of the best restaurants at the Beach, great view of the ocean. Food was very fresh and had very good taste. We ordered the bang bang shrimp as an appetizer and the shrimp was VERY fresh only issue is the dish needed more of the sauce. My wife ordered the scallops and they were excellent. I ordered the crab cakes and they were a little dry. This is not our first visit and we will go back I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Fried seafood was too salty and the “award winning” She crab soup tasted like a bowl of melted cheese without any crab. One of my raw oysters tasted like dirty gym socks.

Seated 40 minutes later than reservation time. She Crab soup had to come from a can; most bland soup of any kind I ever tasted. Steak came from kitchen without Bernaise sauce; waitress had to check menu to see if it was suppose to have Bernaise sauce (I ordered it specifically because of the crab meat and Bernaise sauce!). Noise level unacceptable for this type of restaurant. Sweet tea was excellent. The view is beautiful. But, there are many other better restaurants in the area for a great view. First - and last - time at Sea Captains House. Ruined my wife’s birthday.

We’re visiting Myrtle Beach, and decided to try this restaurant based on recommendations. There were four of us and we were all disappointed. The waitress messed up our orders, the salmon dinner was extremely dry, the baked potato must have been microwaved, as it was hard , I asked for butter,,never got it. My granddaughter asked for mashed potatoes and was given a baked potato. By the time our waitress returned it was too late to change the order.
I don’t understand all the rave reviews this restaurant got.
