Very large restaurant. Coupon saved us $15.00 for three of us. Bill came to $82.00. Our server was nice and pretty quick at clearing our empty plates and refilling our drinks. Soda cost $2.59 water was free. Good food. Good atmosphere. 8in plates. Long walk to buffet. Overall worth the time and a nice experience. There are so many buffets... More

We ate at a couple of the seafood buffets during our week at Myrtle Beach and of the ones we ate at the Giant Crab was the one we enjoyed the most. There is a large selection of seafood as well as other items to enjoy. The price although high if you don't enjoy crab legs is average in comparison... More

We had a large party come to the restaurant which they are so accommodating of large groups, but the few people in our group who eat the crab legs with the melted butter within a few hours was throwing up, they need to check the food temps and discard all foods that have been their over the certain lengths of...

Extensive selection of seafood dishes that was kept fresh and at the correct temperature. If you can't find something you like there, you are pretty picky. Servers were attentive and courteous.

I personally do not eat seafood at all. So it was a bit of a problem for me with all of the items that were not seafood were scattered all over the buffet rather than grouped in one place. This place is not where you want to go if you have an allergy for sure. My kids and husband ate... More

Huge selection of food! They have a grill where you can mix and match chicken, shrimp, and more and choose from flavors like teriyaki and sriracha. They offer smoothies at an additional cost, and they are a little pricy, but very good and you get to keep the glass it comes in.

My aunt, 8 year old son, and I ate here our 2nd night in Myrtle Beach. We arrived at 7:45pm and the buffet was still fresh and well stocked. I ate fried catfish, scallops, shrimp, and steamed crab legs. Everything was good! My son loved the Mac and cheese. He ate 2 helpings. Our server was Brenda. She was great!

This place is the worst kind of tourist trap. My kids wanted to go because of the giant crab over the doorway. That should have been enough to scare me off. The biggest surprise was that I didn't get sick. Some say this place is overpriced... It is, but that's hardly the point. It's just bad food.

We like to hit up the Giant Crab once a North Myrtle visit to eat all of the crab legs, Mongolian dishes, cheese biscuits, and other fried seafood we can handle; horrible, but we love it. Notice I rated the atmosphere as "Excellent", and I mean it is exactly what we wanted in this type of kitschy place. It is... More
