With over 170 tasty and delicious selections in four long rows plus a carving station, my choices were excellent. I had eaten year some years ago and was not that impressed with the food quality. It has always had quantity. However, my recent visit proved to be a real treat. each and every item that I ate was cooked properly... More

Didn't really know what to expect but it was very good. My son enjoyed the crab legs, plate after plate. The kids enjoyed their little buffet. Theirs was free which was nice since they don't eat much anyway. We definitely go our monies worth. All in all it was pretty good for a buffet.

We wanted to have a variety of seafood to eat. When we walked in, we did not ask how much a person but request for military discount for my husband which they did give us. $4 off is better than nothing. The food was pretty good, if you are a crab leg fan, this is the place to go, lots... More

The food was incredible. I've never seen so much food! It is a buffet setting, but they manage to keep the food hot without overcooking (something not all buffets can seem to manage). The staff is always monitoring the lines of food, to make sure nothing runs out. They have something for everyone - not just seafood. Our waitress was... More

The food here was not as good as expected and was 30 per plate. Most of the items I chose to eat had been sitting and were dried and old tasting. The service was ok, but overall it was a bad experience because 2 people ended up sick from it.

Food was fairly good, but honestly just went for the crab legs. King crab legs, all you can eat! A bit pricey but no more so than the other all you can eat buffets, look for coupons. Service is excellent.

Outside is a large parking lot. Buses and large vehicles park along the west side of the lot. There's a large crab over the entrance (Tommy) which is nice to take photos with. Once inside we were greeted by friendly staff and seated quickly. It's quite large inside. The tables were and chairs were wooden. Not the most comfortable. There... More

What makes this place different from the many other seafood buffets available in Myrtle Beach is 1) the Giant Crab (named Tommy) who beckons diners from the front of the building, 2) fun decor throughout the restaurant, and 3) an endless supply of perfectly cooked crab legs, fried fish, shrimp dishes, and many other tasty varieties of sea creatures.
