This restaurant was disgusting!! It made me physically sick after eating there and the $30.00 buffet was ridiculously priced!! I would NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Went to a few all you can eat buffet restaurants in Myrtle Beach and all were good but Benjamin's at 401 was the best. Not only because they had more food variety to offer and tasted great but the service was excellent. Seemed like they had more staff then the other places and everyone greeted you with a smile.

Ok steak, crab legs and rock crab but the sides and other seafood were not good. Desserts were thawed out frozen. Not worth $30 each. ...we smelled of fried seafood for hours.

Great food. Very busy and long lines. Lines move at reasonable rate, so keep your place and relax. There are lots of families and large groups. Children running at times and very loud. Staff keeps most everything in order and the food is replenished at a fast rate. All food is hot, as it should be and is seasoned great.

We go here year after year, and it's always enjoyable! We broke out the bibs this trip, and were in a crab leg coma by the time we left! I also had steak, which was great, and the crab cakes were to die for. The wait staff is always great, and no matter how busy they are the experience is... More

We came here after visiting an attraction on Broadway at the Beach. Our family of 4 got a discount for being here early. All of us enjoyed the selections and everything was fresh and delicious. Our server was friendly. We usually do one seafood buffet while on vacation and we enjoyed this one.

If you are looking for seafood and lots of it this is your place. The early bird prices are well worth it with lots of crab, shrimp and other seafood choices on the buffet. There are traditional buffet choices for the non- seafood lovers! The location is easy to get to from the beach and the service was fast and... More
