Eh... it's alright... if you really need to eat seafood buffet

First time to Myrtle Beach. Was going to go to Crabby Mike's but the line was over an hour and we had a large party. This place had no wait. So, we gave it a shot. The overall selection is pretty good as they had crab legs, talapia, salmon, shrimp, flounder, scallops, and even prime rib for your... read more

First off waiter was very hard to understand, food looks great but it is not, extremely pricey, may had been a bad day for the restaurant, but to us we regretted even stopping by here.

While on vacation, my wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner with our 2 year old granddaughter. The young one fell asleep on the commute and we carried her into the restaurant. We were seated in a booth and our waitress, Karen, was so helpful in preparing the bench seat so our granddaughter could continue sleeping. The food and... More

What we liked best about this place was there was no crazy wait time. The food was good. Nothing so special about the food. Service was good. A little pricy but that's anywhere you go for an all you can eat buffet.

Don't waste your time or money here. The food is terrible! There are too many other good places to eat in the Myrtle Beach area. Do yourself a favor and try one.

Shame on us, we didn't do our research before hand and check the restaurants ratings. Our first clue should have been the almost empty dining room. That's an unusual site at a good seafood buffet in Myrtle Beach. The interior of the restaurant was dated and in need of cleaning. The food on the buffet was hit and miss -... More

This was by far the worst food for the price. Don't waste your time or money. Go to McDonald's. The "crab legs" we're mostly hollow with no meat, or when you found crab, it was like shoe leather. Chicken was almost burned. "Prime rib" was not and cooked to well, well done. At the dinner hour, food was gone, mush,... More
