Good local seafood buffet

The price was right as many have tried the fare here. The portions are a plenty as the buffet selections are good. Service is nice and the price fare for a tourist stop along the lower strip. The focus is the crab legs, so enjoy.

I loved this seafood buffet, I like Calabash seafood buffets but I like the most crab legs.This awesome place had King crab legs, all you can eat, not only snow crab legs. It is a hard thing to find especially in Myrtle Beach, so this place was like a heaven to me. I cracked a lot of king crab legs,... More

This was the worst seafood I have ever had. We arrived there 4pm. First customers. The buffet was not set up. The crab legs over cooked as was the other items when they brought them out. Prime rib was so tough you not cut. Total for 3 people to eat with coupons 75.00, WASTED.

The service makes this place the best. Anita is a great waitress she treated us like family and we have been instructed to message her on facebook to let her know we got back to Canada safely :) This is a great late lunch option. They open at 2 PM. Get a Monster Coupon Book and there is a $5.00... More

The concierge at our resort recommended King Crab as the seafood restaurant to eat at of all the seafood restaurants in Myrtle Beach. What a great choice! The building is a HUGE rustic building with the most buffet tables I can remember seeing. The cost for the buffet is a little on the high side but worth it. If you... More

I think Hurd back and forth Captain Benjamin the giant crab place and I've been to both of those and wasn't very impressed so I pulled over and I googled crab... More

I was awestruck by the sheer size of this restaurant and the size of the buffet. It is not cheap but if you like seafood all different ways, this is your place. My only complaint was the oysters rockefeller on the buffet. I don't think that is a dish that should sit out. They were dried out and I found... More
