Decided to go based on the reviews. When I asked for a menu I was told the buffet was my only option. There was no possibility if a chef for clarification. My waitress actually recommended the macaroni and cheese for my GF granddaughter. While the crab legs were delicious, I felt like I was taking my life in my hands with everything else. Not worth the risk!
I told our waiter that we had someone on a gluten free diet in our party, and he immediately offered to bring a chef out to talk to us. The chef walked us through the whole buffet and let us know which options were safe to eat. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He also checked on us several times to make sure all of our questions were answered. This was by far the best experience we have had since going gluten free.
I was terrified when I walked in and discovered this was an enormous buffet restaurant, but the waiter was extremely helpful. He was woofing to walk me through the buffet or have a chef do so, to explain what I could eat. I decided to play it safe and ordered crab legs from the menu. Great service and decent grub.
The waitress & the chef were very helpful with the menu & went out of their way to accommodate my gluten free dinner !!!
amazing service! our server Joe showed me everything safe and unsafe on the buffet and even explained seasonings used! he also offered to make me anything else i wanted on the buffet that looked queationable or that could be easily adapted to be gf. he brought out warm gluten free bread and warm cookies for me to take with me or eat there! We had a wonderful dinner and for the first time ever I felt safe eating out! and at a buffet of all places!
We have a family of 5 and 3 of us have celiac so eating out is pretty difficult! We never do buffets because that is being super dangerous. However we decided to try Captain George's. AMAZING!!! Our waiter immediately went and got the manger who came out and pulled a chair up at our table to talk through the buffet. After making a list of the things that he was going to specially make in the back (bread, cookies, safe cocktail sauce, and a huge plate of scallops, shrimp, and tilapia), he took us on a tour of the buffet pointing what was safe and what to stay away from! Amazing service, very friendly and knowledgeable, and took his time to go through everything and answer questions. Definitely put this on your seafood dining list for Myrtle Beach!
Absolutely amazing! Best glutenfree seafood ever! The manager came out and sat down and explained everything to us! He then came and gave us a personal tour of the buffet and made us feel comfortable. I don't usually buffets but this was incredible. He brought us gf rolls, and amazing plate of gf shrimp, tilapia, scallops. when we were about ready to burst he brought hot snicker doodle cookies.
Exceeded my expectations! Server Debbie clued in immediately with my question about a dish. She alerted John L. who gave a tour of the buffet and had gluten free rolls delivered to my table. Warm rolls with butter! Wow! Then I enjoy the numerous suggested items from the buffet. Yum! Not only had we given up on patronizing another buffet in Myrtle Beach because of quality (husband isn't gluten free). I didn't need to fear a mistake and we both agreed everything was fresh, tasty and delightful. Debbie gave excellent service though we arrived near the end of the rush. Then Josh delivered warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies for my dessert! I got to enjoy dessert at a buffet! Yes, it exceeded both our expectations for quality, service and gluten free options. Thank you Debbie, John L. and Josh. Josh what a great effort and great team you have developed. We will be back.
We came here with high expectations, maybe we just got a poor waitress. We told her my wife was celiac, she said that usually the manager comes out to explain the gf options. Then she did not get him. We wanted to order from a menu. be aware that the buffet is $32, & if you want to order from a menu the very few entries are $26 and up. The message we got is they really want you to get the Buffett. We had not had in mind spending up towards &200. So we left cash for the drinks and left for hard rock across the street . Had a wonderful experience there (cost $50).
Best celiac friendly place ever. Josh gave us a personal tour of the buffet letting me know what I could and could not have. John had a special plate of shrimp and scallops made for me from the kitchen. He also had gluten free cookies and rolls brought out to the table for my daughter. My family and I will now make this a regular stop when we come to MB. The service was outstanding and the managers truly care.
Josh Kraft made out visit outstanding! He gave a gluten allergy tour and made sure everything my wife chose was gluten free. He went out of his way in this regard. Captain George's is by far the best buffet on the Grand Strand. We make it a regular stop when on vacation in Myrtle. Thanks again Josh! Your efforts were appreciated!
I could not find a better place that would cater to all my needs beside Celiac I'm also allergic to Casein witch makes it even harder for me to eat out. Josh one of the manager was introduced to me by our waitress Ruby. They have made my family dining experience a memorable one. Josh walked me trough the entire buffet area and basically went over every item available for me and my wife and for my son who's also allergic to nuts, he offered to individually cook to order items of my choice. He even brought us gluten free Udi's dinner rolls and non dairy spread. I highly recommend Captain George's to anyone with allergies. Definitely coming back here.
My best experience eating out with Celiac Disease! One of the managers Josh came to my table and explained what I could eat from the buffet and showed me a menu as well. We walked around the buffet area and he pointed out what I could eat. Anything that is GF on the buffet could be made in the back to avoid cross contamination. Josh even gave me Udi's dinner rolls and snickerdoodle cookies. Great food and amazing service. Captain George's is the place to go for gluten free dining on the grand strand.
This place was excellent at handling my allergy! The manager, John, was very knowledgable about gluten allergies and even walked me up and down the buffet showing me what foods I could and couldn't eat. He even brought me some items from the kitchen prepared gluten free when I couldn't have them off the buffet. They even had Udi's brand rolls and cookies for me! I am newly diagnosed, but this is the best experience I've had so far!
excellent!!!! the manager John walked me thru the buffet and explained everything, brought me food from the kitchen, and even GF rolls and cookies, which were amazing!!!! I left full and with a happy belly. they were very knowledgeable there, would highly recommend
Excellent, fresh seafood. My son and I have a gluten allergy and the manager, John, was incredibly helpful. He walked the line with me and showed me everything that we could eat. He even special ordered a couple of items for us so they would be gluten-free. Great experience and food.
Upon arrival our waitress got a manager, John, who took us on a tour of the buffet. He was very knowledgeable, and even offered to bring things from the kitchen so they would be gluten free. My 8 year old and I found a ton of food to eat and they even gave us GF rolls and cookies for our table. Highly recommend!
This was my first buffet in over ten years. As a celiac I have seldom felt so safe in any restaurant! The staff understood my needs and the manager came out and walked with me discussing my options. For some questionable items like the prime rib he made special steak without the seasoning. There were many choices I could have and the atmosphere was amazing.
Wonderful experience! Special thanks to the manager for walking me through the buffet and bringing me cookies for dessert!
I came to myrtle beach for a vacation and couldn't wait to have seafood. this restaurant was amazing and so accommodating to celiac and gluten allergies. I had the manager named John help me and he was great! he walked me through the buffet and explained everything and brought me freshly made condiments which were gluten free.
Amazing experience! Our server Zac was very friendly and made sure to send the manager over to help with any questions I had about the food. The manager John, took me through each buffet and knew exactly what was gluten free and what to avoid. He went item by item. Lots of great food to choose from and they also brought udis rolls and a cookie to the table. Dinner was fantastic highly recommend!!!
This restaurant was awsome..ask for Josh, he will accommodate for just about any allergy or celiac disease issues..This was my first time eating at a buffet since diagnosed with celiac. I was hesitant but Josh made me feel very secure in my food choices..He walkes you through the buffet line showing you what is safe. He also did specialty items in the kitchen for me..Thank you to all the staff that helped and a big shout out to Josh....
We had the pleasure of meeting Manager Josh Kraft when we arrived at the restaurant. Josh allowed us to get seated and then came over and spent 15 minutes with my wife explaining all the options available to her and assisting in creating her own gluten free dinner. Josh was thorough, informative, and went well beyond what we expected from the manager. He truly cares about his customers and has a passion for those with diet sensitivities. Thank you again Josh, for all you did for us. We would be remiss without thanking Matt Vigari Jr. Matt seated us, listened to my wife's concerns, actually went into the kitchen to clean the grill, and then topped it off by cooking her meal. Matt also came back several times to check on us. Finally, we also would like to thank our server, Natalie H. for making our experience at Captain George's wonderful. Matt and Natalie are both college students with very bright futures ahead of them. We give this restaurant our strongest endorsement and plan on returning this fall.
My wife noticed all the great reviews for Capt George's, especially the assistance of the manager Josh Kraft in navigating the buffet. It was better than you are reading. Despite the crowds, Josh took his time with me, answered all ?'s, and offered to provide alternatives from the kitchen when possible. Several times throughout the night he stopped by our table to see if there was anything more he could do. I know many people with Celiac will not chance a buffet, I did with no issues and pleased that I did.
Captain George's was great! You can really get your money's worth. Josh Kraft is the manager and is very knowledge about celiac disease. He walked me through the buffet line and told me what I could have and what he could alter for me. Great place!
The manager ( Josh Kraft) was well informed about gluten allergy/celiac disease because his wife is gf. He walked me thru every buffet station and showed me what was safe and not safe. He also offered to make me several items (tilapia, ribs, and a few others) in the back without sauces on them. They have Udis dinner rolls and cookies as well.
Wow! Food=amazing, service= outstanding!!!! We were helped by Joe, one of the managers, who was very knowledgeable and extremely attentive. They made everything special in the back and were certain to make sure we would never starve. He made sure it was all gluten free and since I was also pregnant he helped make sure that I was not exposed to anything not pregnancy safe. 10 stars for this place!
I came in knowing I would have to ask for a menu, however the waiter didn't seem to care whether or not I was gluten intolerant. I did order the chicken meal with rice pilaf and fresh fruit, but for the $$$ we spent it could have been much better. Hubby got the buffet and ate almost nothing. Almost everything on the buffet was fried, so if you are trying to eat a healthier lifestyle, this is not the place to go. The atmosphere was terrible.
One of the best experiences I have had since being gluten free (2008 ). Josh walked us through to show us all the options. Also offered to bring things from kitchen so no chance of cross contamination. They are also trying to work with some companies to give more roll and dessert options.
OMG!!! Best food experience I've had in a long time....gluten friendly!! To the max!!! Josh walked me through the bar and told me what was ok....then made SEVERAL special items and brought to my table!! 5 stars...2 thumbs up....highly recommend!!
Wow! The manager, Josh, was great. He walked through the entire buffet and then had certain items prepared and brought to the table. It's so rare to be catered too in a positive way these days. We had a large party as well and they took excellent care of us! Other restaurants could certainly learn from this place. An absolute must visit while in Myrtle Beach!
Amazing buffet, the restaurant, food and service are top notch. When I asked about allergy information, the waitress said a manager would give me a walk thru of the buffet. The manager, Josh, was very pleasant, he introduced himself to my family and chit-chatted before going over to the buffet. His knowledge of the celiac lifestyle was extensive and he covered which buffet items did not contain gluten. Also which items could be sent from the kitchen to the table without a sauce or other addition that would keep them gluten free.
AMAZING!!! We came based on the recommendations from Find Me Gluten Free and were not disappointed. The Manager John was super nice and very informed. This was by far the best GF experience at a restaurant we have ever had! Also the food was amazing. Delicious and flavorful. Will most definitely be back again.
Read the previous reviews which was very helpful in deciding to eat here. The manager john was very attentive and knowledgable about celiac and showed my sin what he could eat at the bar - anything that may have been cross contaminated he got directly from the kitchen. I'm glad he was there because the staff we dealt with had no idea what celiac was - thank you john!
Ate my weight in shrimp and crab legs, but the manager John was wonderful! Great location for people who are gluten free - highly recommend it!
Excellent! John Long is one of the managers that was very knowledgeable about gluten and all allergens. He took us through a personal tour of the entire buffet. Any items that could have possible cross contamination via the bar were offered to my husband to be brought fresh from the kitchen. The food was delicious, and there were more than enough gf options. We will be making this a yearly tradition.
Awesome place to eat! John, allergist specialist, gave me a tour of the buffet pertaining to what was gf and what wasn't. Very friendly staff and very nice atmosphere. Having a wheat allergy is difficult but this place made it very easy! Wish they had this place in my hometown!
Excellent customer service and so accommodating. Staff will have the chef come and walk you down the buffet explaining what you can and can not have. They will even prepare you something from the kitchen if you don't want the buffet. We will be returning again!
Highly recommend this place for delicious seafood and all u can eat crab legs! Josh the manager was so kind and helpful. Very knowledgeable about celiac and gluten free. Walked me through the entire buffet and offered to remake many dishes specially in the kitchen gluten free for me. I was shocked to hear that the drawn butter has gluten in it, but the melted margarine was safe for the crab legs. Explains why I've always had a stomachache with drawn butter! Arrive early to avoid crazy lines, come hungry, and ask for Josh Kraft.
Went due to all recommendations here. Arrived only to be handed a menu that was not at all helpful by the manager that night. I would not recommend this place if you can not get tour as the menu was very vague. Statements such as "anything with sea legs". Certainly is not very descriptive. No tour of the buffer was offered by the manager just the vague menu.
