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.

Second week in a row. Great Sunday specials first, red snapper and scallops and this day sea bass and shrimp. Deviating, I got the shrimp and oyster poor boy. Skimpy for price, tiny hoggy, 2 medium shrimp and two oysyers. Manager said it was by weight and not counts. I do not carry a scale, but do count. Get something else! Chowder had few clams, one piece of potato. Must have dipped from top....

Outstanding service, delicious food, and I requested via OpenTable a seat with an ocean

Very enjoyable experience. Hushpuppies were served with sweet butter. Quite tasty. The She Crab soup was rich and delicious. The stuffed flounder was "the best seafood I've had" according to my wife. I enjoyed the broiled scallops, but they were not as firm as I'd like them. Salads and sides we're good also. 2 entrees and 2 cups of soup (no drinks) added up to $100 when you include the tip.

Unfortunately, there was a very loud party of young "adults" celebrating someone birthday as if they were in a sports bar. A real spoiler for the remaining adults in this fine restaurant.

We made reservations for 5:15 and arrived on time. Hostess took us to table in the back of upper room. When we asked if we could sit instead at an empty table by the window she said that table was reserved for someone who made a reservation. When we said we made a reservation, she said no one had told her that! She then moved us downstairs to a table by the window. She was very accommodating and pleasant -- A+. Server was very efficient in the ordering process but to be honest he's a little loud. We asked that our meals not be served until after we finished our salad and soup, but the entrees came while we were only half-finished with the salad/soup. The server did notice this, apologized, and took our entrees back to stay warm until we were ready. Glad he noticed but would have been better if they had timed out correctly originally as requested.. I had the special seafood for the night and loved the presentation of the shrimp but was not overly impressed with the fish. My companion ordered two appetiers and soup. He felt the crab cakes were very good, lots of crab, and the scallops were tender. Once our entrees were served we were able to relax and noise subsided. We enjoyed our view and the rest of our experience. We were very appreciative of the manager (?) who visited our table as we were finishing. He was very pleasant and seemed genuinely interested and concerned to know we had a pleasant dining experience.

I've been going to Sea Captain's house every time I visit Myrtle beach for the past six years.. The food is great, bar has a happy hour and the people who work here are the best! Sometimes I'm alone and I still have an enjoyable meal and great drinks. When I have family or friends with me I enjoy introducing them to this restaurant and they also have a great time and LOVE the food and drinks. They also have a Sunday brunch that is to die for! Everything from Eggs Benedict, carved meat, waffles and everything in between. It's all worth the price they charge. If your in the area I highly recommend that visit this restaurant. You won't be disappointed!

Seafood fresh. Service fine. However, lived up to the moniker---"Captain"----SALTY. Too much. We only ate half of our fried dish. Too much salt.

Very happy that this restaurant is now on Open Table. Service was efficient and friendly. Recommend: calamari, scallops and stuffed flounder. The ginger salad dressing is flavorful and a nice change from the normal offerings. We will return when we visit MB again.

Food was mediocre at best. Scallops were grilled in some type of seasoning that unfortunately made the entire meal overly salty. Very disappointed for a $30 plus dollar meal. Will never return.

You pay for the view. The food is good but nothing that you can’t get other places all around. It’s a great place to dine while watching the beautiful ocean! If it’s too dark you will miss the view, which, I’m my opinion is main the reason to eat here.

This is one of my mother-in-laws favorite restaurants. My husband and I also visit you as much as possible when we are down at Murrells Inlet. The food is always delicious, the view magnificent, and the staff so warm and professional! I had the opportunity to lunch with my young adult daughter yesterday....just the two of us! What a great memory we will always have of that special moment! As always, thank you!
