The food was terrible and we got there when they first opened up for the day so everything should've been fresh. The "live mermaid show" was just a girl in a tiny pond playing on her cell phone. The service was ok, but the bill put us out 100$ for two adults and one child...and that was with a coupon.... More

First it's a little pricey especially for a family of 4. $29.95 a person , $12.95 for kids and doesn't include drinks. Food was just ok. Just about everything we had was very bland, including desserts. First set of crab legs were over cooked and meat sticking to the shell . Second set was better. For the price we will... More

Crab legs were great. Little pricey for two people and no drinks. Steak a little too well done. Bathrooms was extremely clean.

I have eaten at a lot of seafood buffets in myrtle beach and this one is one of the best. There is a lot of variety of the types of items. The buffet even had perfectly cooked, tender steaks. Everything I tried was of great quality.

Most items were hot and fresh, waitress was friendly and helpful. Crab legs were good and large selection of shrimp. Have to eat a lot to get your money's worth, there was a children's rate and a small senior discount given upon request. Dessert bar was very ordinary and could use improvement.Our grandkids found the decor interesting!

They enjoyed the food, lots to choose from, although pricey. $30 for all you can eat. They have been talking about it since they left, even though we are back home now. It was memorable, they would go back.

The buffet was very pretty and the waitress that served us was so attentive and maintained all her tables. I enjoyed everything except my fried shrimp and oysters. They were not very hot but overall I would return.

The food was terrible. I would never recommend this place. It was way overpriced for the quality of food. The prime rib was hard to chew and the sea food was the worst I have ever eaten. I went there for the sea food and it was a BIG mistake. Spoke to the manager on duty and he didn't seem... More

Wait and buffet staff were very friendly and helpful. The Crab legs and calabash shrimp were awesome. The buffet was well serviced. Cold items were cold and hot items were hot. There should be something special for everyone in large group or family outing! It was a little loud when we were there, making it hard to have a conversation... More
