The questioner thought the restaurant was in the 3700 block of Carolina Beach Road, Wilmington [Map this].
I could find no restaurant named “Capt. Ben’s” on Carolina Beach Road
However, I did find a Capt. Ben’s on Market Street in the 1949 and 1950 telephone books. Those old books do not have the street numbers listed, only the street names. It’s telephone number, for what it’s worth, was 3-2558. Which shows you just how small Wilmington was back then.
If anyone has more information on this restaurant, or on a Capt. Ben’s restaurant on Carolina Beach Road, please let us know.
