This is a huge restaurant with a tremendous variety of seafood, other meats, and side dishes. My husband and I loved it. We went there with a tour group of 44 people. The service was great and the atmosphere is relaxed. We would go again on our own.

We got a BOGO coupon in the local paper and went to The Giant Crab Seafood. It was awesome and a great deal. We loved the selection of food and the price. My husband loved the prime rib and the seafood. I loved the selection and it was not as crowded as the other place - you did not feel... More

My husband and I took advantage of the BOGO. Without it, the $30-ish per person price is pretty high. But, the food is good and the amount of choices is amazing! We went on a slow rainy week night. Waitress was very nice and attentive. So many choices of seafood! I have been to so many buffets, but this one... More

This is my second time going here (once during peak season and now during off season) and I've never been disappointed. The food was fresh and good. The crab legs were so sweet and meaty! Don't leave Myrtle Beach without visiting this place! The $30 is worth it and you can find coupons in most hotels. Be mindful of the... More

started with fried seafood. only a few choices. very small fried shrimp. Crab legs were dry and had no flavor. Very hard to get meat out as the shells were almost soggy. Best bite was the chocolate cake. Not a good sign for a seafood buffet

The Giant Crab is one location we take any out of town visitors because it has an excellent selection of various foods. Each person can have their choice from seafood to prime rib to stir-fry made while you wait. Don't forget to print the value coupon prior to doing. It does help with the buffet cost. If you love crab... More

My husband and I went to the Giant Crab tonight for dinner. We started with the soups which were delicious. Then we hit the snow crab, the crabs were steaming hot and full. They had plenty of other dishes, like clams, mussels oysters shrimp, carving station,. They even have a kids bar with chicken nuggets, onion rings, chicken fingers, and... More

It's a must-do for our annual vacation stays at Myrtle Beach. We generally try to go early, both for the discount and to avoid the crowds. Skip lunch and have an early dinner here. Of course, the main draw is the unlimited snow crab legs. Most of the rest is traditional seafood dominated buffet items, but there is a carving... More
