Horrible!

Quantity NOT quality. The food was bland, cheap quality. The chowder was AWFUL! Clams floating in milk. They need lessons from Legal Seafood! The fish, oysters, shrimp, were edible but nothing great. I really don't go for buffets but this sounded like it might be good as we love seafood... read more

Huge selection of food. Salad fixings, main courses, side dishes, and deserts. The food is used up so fast, and new brought in, it isn't like setting there long and getting yucky. Go there when you're real hungry. I love salads, but don't over do it there. Hold back on the bread to, not to fill yourself to much on... More

I went there for the buffet for crab legs. They were very good - crunchy on the outside, juicy & tender on the inside. Desserts were really bad but rest of buffet was average.

We usually go here for seafood...the one just north of Benjamin's. Costs less than Benjamin's and just as good. I walk with a cane and they always seat us near the food bars. The staff is friendly and on the ball. There is a good variety of food, and you can select the buffet with or with crab legs for... More

I know I came during the after season but food was tasteless, service could have been better. I normally don't like to report bad reviews but I've been told from the locals that these calabash places are all the same so go somewhere authentic.

We have eaten here many times and always enjoy the food. Great variety. Waitress did not have a lot of personality.

We go there every time we come down to Myrtle beach and never had bad food. Let's face it, it's a buffet, some things will be good, others not so good. We go mostly for the crab legs and hush puppies. The service is always great! It's a bit pricey, but with a $5 coupon per person, it wasn't bad... More

Expensive, as are most seafood buffets. The seafood was good but with small children in tow, who don't eat seafood, their choices were limited and we didn't get our money's worth from their food. Say no to the lady wanting to take your picture. I did because I had already watched as she tried to sell another family a larger... More

This buffet is not our usual stop when going to myrtle. It had great crab legs, but the other offerings were average. as far as freshness and variety.

My wife and I stopped by this all you can eat seafood restaurant during the Christmas holiday season. They have a wide variety of seafood and other basic choices of meat entrees. The food was good but if you not a seafood lover than you should not go. The non-seafood choices were very limited. The service was very good and... More
