Decent buffet but way overpriced

At $30.99 per person and almost $3 for unlimited soft drinks, it's overpriced for a buffet. It wasn't crowded for a Sunday night. I probably wouldn't return. I didn't see crab cakes on the buffet and the crab legs were only okay. Everything else I ate was pretty good.

Even though there is an large amount of variety, I go for the crab. I tried some fried shrimp and had some steak off the carving board station and made a salad. They boil/cook the crab to perfection. The only minus about the whole experience is the tempeture inside!!! Its freezing. Even in a sweater I was shivering.

If you come to Myrtle Beach go to Giant Crab. They have everything you need. The food was delicious and the environment was great. They have over 100 items on the buffet, including crab legs. Plus they have sushi bar, have 2 man band playing nice relaxing music.

I’m posting this review under Bennett’s and Giant Crab as it’s basically a comparison between the two. We were in North Myrtle Beach the third week of August and ate at both locations. Overall observations of 3 adults and a 6 year old: Bennett’s had the better tasting Crab, although both offered plentiful amounts. GC had a hibachi grill, enjoyed... More

Located on the main highway in Myrtle Beach, The Giant Crab Seafood restaurant is a great find for seafood treasure hunters. The buffet offers over 170 hot dishes, complete with crab legs. There are non-seafood items, as well as a complete made to order hibachi cooking area. Obviously, the selection was so vast that the dinner needs to use good... More

We ate "The earlybird" with a coupon. Everything was very good but the "Primerib"... it was too tough to eat more than a bite of! The seafood was very good as was the service. It was kind of hard to locate things, but they did have a great selection to choose from. It was quit high, which would have been... More

If you're expecting a fancy sitdown restaurant you shouldn't go here. But if you want to come here with your family, with the knowledge that theres something for everyone, and the food being reasonably good, then this is where you should go. Yes it's a buffet but they have a wide selection of food and all you can eat crab... More
