We had a hard time selecting which buffet. My friend said the crab legs were delicious. I ate other items from the buffet including fried oysters. They were very small and tasted ok. I am sure there were some tasty foods. I would not go back.

Yes it's a buffet. But the food quality was very good,better than anything in North Myrtle. Seafood was top notch for the money and the prime rib was better than expected.Veggies were fresh and not overcooked.Raw bar was also better than we expected. Desserts were best I have had in a while .Very clean and the service was enthusiastic.

We have been coming to Myrtle Beach for 3 years and never miss to add King Crab as part of our restaurant visits at least 3 to 4 times each visit. The crab was so delicious and easy to crack you could do it with your hand, and was so juicy and tender you didn't need the butter. The calabash... More
