Sea Captain’s House restaurant in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina has won more awards than any other restaurant in Myrtle Beach. The ultra busy restaurant serves up classic seafood dishes in a 1930s cottage overlooking the ocean. CSL tried the Captain’s Seafood Muddle, a hearty soup with Sauteed Shrimp, Scallops, Fish, Clams, Mussels, Bacon, Potatoes and Celery in a Saffron Tomato Broth, and succulent lobster tail with a side of hush puppies. A must-try is the she-crab soup.
