The absolute, most disgusting food, ever. Spent $120 on my family of 4 and ordered pizza when we got back to our resort. Place should be closed down!

My in laws are relative locals here (Holden beach NC) so on a recent weekend trip to myrtle the recommended this buffet. My wife and her folks are voracious seafood eaters and j have to say, the crab legs were among the best I had seen in a while (similar comments from my crab-addict in laws). And then there was...

When you walk through the door the first thing that hits you is the smell, kind of like sulfur. The tables all seemed dirty. The service was bad and the food was not even remotely good. There is now way this is fresh seafood. Crab meat in some of the dishes was actually fake. In credibly overpriced! Stay away!

We come to Bennets every year as soon as we get to the beach bc we are usually starving. This year they have expanded the restaurant and also expanded the buffet. Even more fantastic than normal! So many choices. All taste great. My only complaint is that the people working there have zero personality. They are not very friendly. They... More

One of the better buffetts on the main strip, and usually not crowded. May not have the 170 items like the big crab next door, but the crab legs are top of the line and isn't that why we are there anyway??

The food was actually pretty good. Selection and variety of food was actually pretty good. Quality was pretty tasty. We went right before 6 p.m. and got right in without any wait. The service we received was seriously lacking though. Had to ask twice for our waiter to even get drinks. We have to ask twice for shell crackers and... More

We have eaten here for the past 5 years and we were amazed at the variety of food offered! Crab legs, oysters , tilapia, more than you can imagine. The staff keeps up, but the last few visits it has gotten extremely crowded. Go early 4 or so, after there is a line. Most everyone is friendly, the staff now... More

The many types of seafood was prepared deliciously. My only problem was that I wanted to eat more, but I was too full. Loved everything I tried.

Ate at Bennett's twice during our last visit to Myrtle Beach. Not as large as some of the other Calabash style restaurants, but the service was decent. The desserts could use a little work as most were rather blan, especially the lemon pie.

We have visited several seafood buffets in the area, because we were trying to do something different because we always eat at Bennetts. I have to say that they are not perfect but compared to others the best. They have more variety for people not interested in seafood. They have improved the desserts and now have real ice cream that... More
