Best we ate all week in MB

First of all you WILL spend $30 a person. While I don't usually like buffets, this one was pretty good. Huge selection and pretty good food (especially considering it is a buffet). We ate at much higher rated places in MB, but this was the best value without going somewhere with plastic spoons and... read more

This is all you can eat buffet and it is exceptionally clean for a buffet. We love to eat crab legs and they keep the crab legs full and not once was the tray empty. The food was great and the service even better. I give them an A+!

I have been here but it keeps getting better. WE really are impressed with how clean and fresh the sea food is. LOVE all you can eat crab legs. YUMMY. but everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. And the all you can eat buffet was very affordable. We enjoyed our free picture and yummy cocktails.

Being a local, I've had a chance to visit several of the larger seafood buffets here in town. We had a 2 for 1 coupon, and even with that and one cocktail each our bill was over $50. Disappointing considering the food was bland, crab legs were barely warm, even the melted butter was tasteless. The seating reminded me of... More

Had been going to Giant Crab for years and loved it. Was disappointed this time round as the steam clams now were cooked in some type of marinade sauce which tasted terrible. I went for good plain steamed clams like they had for years and loved it but this was a disaster dish. Which just ruined the meal for us.... More

During our stay at Myrtle Beach, we stopped to eat at Giant Crab. The picture at the front of the restaurant was a nice touch and a great memento for looking back on our visit to the area. The buffet offers a great variety of foods from soups, to all types of seafood, to hibachi and even desserts. My best... More

If you are there to eat crab you will be very satisfied. The crab legs are large, tasty and plentiful. They just keep bringing them out constantly and you can enjoy all you want. ALL of the rest of the food on the buffet was mediocre/bland. There is a lot of selection of other sea foods and meats and all... More

Surprised by the variety, Giant Crab has not only a large variety of seafood but steaks, prime rib, chicken and salads. The buffet bar is quite large but the hostess is sure to explain the arrangement and location of everything as she guides guests to their seats. Crab legs were full, steamed oysters for shucking, peel and eat or fried... More
