We are here our first night and the cost of the buffet was $39.99 which included T-bone steak. There is a huge variety of seafood, fried chicken, salad, breads, desserts, etc. We were able to get a table right away. It was clean, fresh food, and the food was good.

This place has a HUGE selection of various types of food. Unfortunately most of it was poorly prepared with most meats well overcooked and dry. The hibachi looked good but I ate too much of the other food to give it a try. The ham and prime rib both looked amazing. Dessert was your typical buffet quality. I wasted more... More

We had a horrible experience at this place! They served us a wine bottle that had mold on the labels and on the outside of the bottle. The waitress was almost non-existent throughout our meal. Manager was sent to us. After several mistakes concerning the receipt, we finally paid for a drink we didn't even order just so we could... More

Good variety of food, have everything from lasagna to crab legs, good cutting board too, expensive though, if you can get the coupons, they usually help out a bit. For three of us it cost a bit over 100 dollars, but I guess that's what happens when you show up after a certain time.

It was $60 plus tip and with a $10 discount! Granted they do have a large buffet with all you can eat, but while the buffet is large it's a lot of the same stuff. I can't really justify spending that kind of money unless all you really plan on doing is eating a ton of crab legs. Decor kept... More

WOW! What a buffet. Anything you might want. Service was very good, keeping you in drink and empty plates cleaned off your table.

I have been going to The Giant Crab for years when visiting Myrtle Beach. It hasn't changed much and that is a good thing. The food is always good and plentiful. You don't have to fight over the crab legs because they are plentiful. There is a really great selection of other items on the buffet to include soup, salad... More
