This used to be my absolute favorite place to eat at Myrtle Beach. My Husband and I would go to this restaurant at least once every beach trip. Our most recent visit was March 25, 2015 and we were so disappointed. If this had been my first visit, I would have never come back. The crab legs were good and... More

We were skeptical due to what we had heard about the buffets not being all that great but were pleasantly surprised that the All You Can Eat Crab Legs were as good as they were! Cooked perfectly and they had so much to choose from! The Prime Rib was outstanding!

You will not believe the seafood! 170 seafood items. Everything I had was very good. The crab legs are my favorite. You better get here early or be prepared to wait. Always our favorite.

We stopped there around 1pm - looking for a buffet. It was clean, great service, and good food. There was everything from shrimp (fried, peel-n-eat, etc), mussels, oysters, scallops, crab legs, clams, flounder, salad bar, etc. Even several types of ice cream and cakes. Not great food, but really good food - especially for a buffet.

Be prepared to wait, but the line moves fast and it is worth it. Great selection of dishes, and because it is so busy things turn over so it is fresh. Better than many of these big seafood buffets. Expensive, but with BOGO coupon reasonable. Disappointed in the Oysters Rockefeller, but most everything else was good. Even good roast beef.... More

I do not eat at many buffets. This was awesome it is $30 a head, but they have it all and I would definitely return. Everything was good. We had 10 people and they got us in in 10 minutes on valentines day.

I actually received a free meal coupon to Captain Benjamin's from one of the local shows other wise I probably would not have visited there! I had eaten there many years ago and thought the price was a bit high back then!! It's still a bit pricey but the food is good! Don't eat anything for lunch if you plan... More

Who can eat $ 27 worth of buffet food? way over priced. I'm sure that there are more reasonably priced eateries in the area.
