I had dinner at the Giant Crab on Wednesday, December 31, 2014. The buffet was huge and featured lots of items. I sampled many of the selections that were out there. I really enjoyed the bisque soup. There was an award winning dessert that I enjoyed tremendously. The service was excellent. I would certainly recommend this place to others.

We went for the buffet. Tons of stuff to chose from, even fried chicken(which I do not recommend) and the hit of the buffet for everyone it seems was the giant crab legs. I ate a few, my husband being a lover of them ate as much as he could hold. They were wonderful. seasoned perfectly, cooked perfectly and they... More

It is very open and loud, but fun. We had a great time there. There was so much food to choose from. Some people complain about the price, but I think it was worth it. I've spent more than $30.00 for just a steak and baked potato in Myrtle Beach. Look for coupons before you go. The food was good.... More

Worst prime rib I have ever tried to eat. It looked awful and tasted even worse. This stuff is 100 times worse than the $2.95 prime rib specials you could get in Vegas 15 years ago. Crab legs were good. Buffet items were good. Dessert was very good. They need to learn to cook prime rib. I can not believe... More

I've eaten here twice with family and friends since May 2014 and have come away disappointed both times. For the price, I think that the food choices are limited and the food quality is lacking. My wife feels the same and we will not be coming back.

My wife and I were cordially received and seated promptly. The selection was surprising. They truly exceeded expectations concerning offering of choices. I have read other reviews. My experience was quite positive. Being from the local area I can tell you the price is the same at competitors but to each his own. Only recommendation I can give is to... More

First of all, I didn't know the buffet was 30$ per person until our waitress brought the bill out. It's basically a money scheme from the time you walk up ( there is a lady that takes a picture of you soon as you walk up) only to be charged 10+ tax to buy the bigger version of the picture... More

My husband wanted to go here for some time now. Dinner buffet is $29.99 whether you're eating crabs legs and prime ribs or not. Salad bar was gross and unkept. Ranch dressing was awful. Be sure to find coupons before you go.
