How does Captain Jack's Buffet stay in business? My family is on vacation here and we went to Captain Jack's for dinner. The food was mediocre, the price was $30.00 per person and the service was the worst we have ever experienced. We had to wait 15 minutes for our drinks to be brought to the table, well after we had all started eating. We asked for some extra napkins and the waitress never brought them. A refill of drinks or the need for plates to be removed from the table was not happening. The waitress brought the bill timely, but I couldn't even get her to come and take my money! I had to flag down another waiter to take my payment so we could leave. I wonder if the locals eat there at all or just the ignorant vacationers such as myself looking for some good seafood.
Captain Jacks sucks

You are exactly right! We tried it also and they are terrible in too many ways to mention. Save your money and eat anywhere but at Captain Jacks!

Save your money is right! Fried, nasty and uninterested employees. Eat at Boondock's or Carraba's. Great food and great service!

I have to agree with this string. We made the mistake of going to Captain Jacks and were very disappointed also. I know our service was bad also, but I would have looked over that if the food was any good. If you are unfamiliar with Captain Jacks Buffet, take it from me, "Don't do it!". I would not recommend them to anyone nor will we ever go back.

No. Locals never go there! Not fresh seafood. Don't waste your money or time, all the good food is mainly at St. Andrews.

Ate there once when on vacation...overpriced, and food was bad....if you don't like seafood there wasn't much else to choose from. Service was slow....never again. Check out the website: and you can write a comment there also...that is where the people look that are coming to vacation. They look on there for places to eat and stay...perhaps some of the locals could comment on that site also.

We have alot of great resturants on the beach, especially small mom & pops. Captain Jacks is not one of them.

If you must go to a buffet, drive over to Panama City to Chow Time. Inexpensive, with crab legs.

Chow Time is cheap but you cant compare the two against once another on the crab legs Chow Time is a whole lot smaller and a different grade of legs, how ever Capt Jacks is s rip off, if the rest of the buffet was any good it would be worth the price I thought it caught fire tho

Captain Jacks is nothing but a tourist trap. Overprised, uninteresting and just bad.
