My family and I visited the Sea Captain's House on Thursday, July 26th, 2012, to end our vacation on a high note. I hadn't been in a few years, but I had a pleasurable experience during my last visit and wanted to share this 'diamond in the rough' with my parents and nieces who had never been.
The evening started with a very friendly server. She got out drinks quickly and brought us some hushpuppies and butter to enjoy before our meals arrived. We did have to swat a couple flies, but we figured it was part of dining right on the beachfront. Shortly after our salads arrived, we noticed a family at the next table looking in our direction (we were seated a few feet from the wall/drink station). We thought it odd so we turned around to see a huge insect (looked like a cockroach but a beach bug of some sort) crawling on a tray of tea pitchers. This insect then took a trip to the floor and ran under our table. I tried to step on it, but it quickly ran towards another wall.
I told our server about it, and I could tell she was very embarrassed. I was also very embarrassed because my review was what brought us here in the first place. Within a few minutes, a man (who we later learned to be the manager), came out with another young man and started inspecting behind furniture in the dining room. They started behind the wrong wall, but he never came over to ask us. While they were inspecting, 2 more of the same insects came out of the same spot - one scurrying along the wall and one ran quickly towards my table on the floor. My mom jumped. The boy with the manager jumped towards the floor with a napkin and finally caught the bug.
At this point, we should have left. After a moment, the manager offered us another table, and we agreed. (I didn't know that the sickening feeling in my stomach would endure until the end of the night.) I can't really review the food this visit because I just ate as quickly as I could to leave while constantly checking the floor and wall around me. Our server was very friendly, and the manager came by a couple more times to check on us but never offered any sort of compensation for our experience that night.
After I returned home to Knoxville, I left a post on their Facebook page hoping to get some sort of response about my experience. I didn't blast them or anything; I just wanted to get some sort of response. They responded by deleting my post and not contacting me. Sadly (but maybe fortunately), my business is done with the Sea Captain's House. I hope they get their pest problem under control, but from now on, they will just be the place that had a bug problem and has poor management.
We had a horrible experience. When you spend $350 you expect good service and food. We waited 10 minutes for the hush puppies which was the best thing we tasted. The soup was cold, had to send back, it was good. All of the other food was so bland, I wish i carried seasoning with me. They charged an additiional $30 for a lobster tail with a meal, and when my son-in law had it we tried it and no taste. We have always heard what great food and service and was so disappointed. We all ordered everything on our baked potatoes only a few got it, I had to wait 10 minutes for my water to be filled The scallops tasted raw, and just a bad experience. I had coupons and would have enjoyed the Red Lobster $15 per person 4 course meal with $2 off better than this. That is sad. I wouldn t go back, no way, no how.
Recommended by our hotel, restaurant was decent. 2 adults, 1 kid ate for $67, no alcoholic drinks. Free hush puppies, got the crab dip, pretty good. I ordered shrimp scampi which was decent. Daughter got fried shrimp platter and she liked it. Salad dressing has lots of herbs, sister didn't like. I thought was ok. Heard Captain George's is the place to go, will try it next time. 3 stars here.
Asked the local hotel where they would go for a great breakfast and the clerk recommended this place. We got there in time for their buffet breakfast but as soon as I saw the bacon and brie omelet on the menu-I had to order. Staff were great and prices were decent. Will definitely go back on my next visit!
HORRID, EXPENSIVE, THE WAIT WAS EXTREME, FOOD UNINSPIRED- AM FROM CHARLOTTE AND ANY SEAFOOD RESTAURANT IS A BETTER CHOICE. TOO MANY RESTAURANTS TO CHOOSE FROM IN MB TO GO BACK. PEOPLE WHO EAT HERE AND RATE IT HIGHLY, MUST HAVE LIMITED EXPERIENCE IN SEAFOOD DINING.

Just had lunch w/friends today at Sea Captain's House. Was greeted with an adorable hostess who showed us to a table by the ocean. The service was excellent and prompt and the food is amazing. Don't miss this one. Can't wait to return.
FIVE STARS!!! This is the best seafood resturant in Myrtle Beach. I had both lunch and dinner. The dinner menu is priced higher as most places are. If there is somehthing you want and it is not on the menu, ask, they can take care of it for you! Quality of the food was excellent! Price was worth it! The service of the waitress was poor, but there are very few good to great waitress'. Still highly recommended!
This place was gross...not worth the money at all. Red Lobster is 50 times better. Very limited menus. My husband's fried dishes were all soggy, not crispy at all. My broiled flounder had no seasoning and the rice tasted days old. Yuck. The table next to us sent their meal back because the slamon was not cooked all the way. STAY AWAY!
