Best calabash seafood restaurant in Myrtle Beach and believe me I have tried most of them over the past 30 years. Everything I have had off their buffet has been excellent . Others may offer more quantity but none have a better quality! Try it- you won't be disappointed.

This Bennett's is close to our beach house, so we like to eat here a couple of times a year. This visit we had our 2 1/2 year old grandson with us. The hostess was nice but our server wasn't really interested in serving us even though the restaurant was not crowded at all. We never eat the buffet --... More

Took 4 boys and luckily they were half price...($13 each) We had $5 off coupons (in every tourist mag) so the adult price was $23. AWFUL!!! All the food was just plain gross. Most of the food is fried in the cornmeal calabash style hence the name. The prime rib and the t-bones were over cooked and under seasoned. The... More

Not all Bennett's are the same. This one didn't have the Bang Bang Shrimp that I love so much. The food was absolutely terrible. $30 for a buffet and I couldn't find one decent item. There were only a few people in the restaurant and we were looking forward to our last meal being memorable. It was memorable, all right!

I love this place. And I don't even eat most seafoods. The Bang Bang shrimp is my favorite. All the food is perfectly seasoned and cooked. It's yummy!

We were wanting seafood but didn't want to pay exorbitant price for the seafood buffet. They had a senior menu that was very reasonable and had plenty of food on the plate. We were full. The food was fresh and cooked for us, not taken off the buffet and served to us. Waiter was friendly and kept our drink glass... More

Loved the crab legs-large, prime ribs great choices and the service was great. A large variety of food for everyone. The fruits were fresh and the dessert bars was great. disliked - None to speak about

Bennett's #2 leaves a lot to be desired upon entry; the hostess (who doesn't have ANY southern hospitality or accent either for that matter) seemed to be put out that we wanted to be seated AND that we needed a booster seat for the little one in our group - she tried to avoid getting the seat - mentioned something...

There are multitudes of calabash restaurants in Myrtle Beach and we decided to try Bennett's which was not too far away from the outlet mall. It was pretty expensive even with the early bird coupon. Everything tasted the same and that's not a good thing. The stuffed sole, stuffed shrimp and stuffed crab must have used the same stuffing. The... More

We went to this restaurant during my friends vacation for their " big seafood outing." When we we came into the restaurant we quickly found out that the price was significantly more that what was advised on the sign out front. The service left a lot to be desired also. There essentially was no atmosphere to the restaurant. However for... More
