The only good part was our adorable waitress, Mariah!

We went because a young girl passed out flyers on the beach for King Crab. When we arrived, there were very few customers. After we tried the food, we knew why! The snow crab, fried scallops and shrimp were good. However, everything else was terrible! The steak and prime rib were both overdone... read more

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 place is amazing. The food is top quality. Buffet is kept up nice and refilled often. It was just as expected. With many choices on the buffet from salads and sides, to seafood and prime rib. The desserts were nice and yummi!!! Restaurant was busy but very clean! We eat in King Crab every time we visit Myrtle Beach!!!

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

This was without a doubt the worst restaurant I've ever been to in Myrtle Beach. First you get charged $25 for the buffet because they have crab legs on the buffet. Well I don't eat those but it was a treat for my husband so I said ok. There seemed to be enough other things that I could eat. Much... More
