Anthony and Ryan both made our several visits outstanding. We had all we could eat of steamed oysters, crab legs--almost everything you could want from a seafood buffet. Anthony even showed us how to properly crack the crab legs. Be sure to find a five dollar off coupon and go during the timeframe specified as it is worth it.

We have vacationed a lot in Myrtle Beach. Every year I wanted to try one of the buffets because I love seafood. My family, unfortunately, was very resistant because they don't care much for seafood. This year we again stayed in the Myrtle Beach area. I talked about trying one, and my wife urged me to do it. She said... More

This place was not very clean, the buffet was dismally stocked with nothing but deep fried, high grease low-budget food. Veggies? all they had was corn and fake mashed potatoes. For the money they charge you can eat sooooo much better in Myrtle. Note to self ... eat where the locals eat and stay away from the buffets. We got... More

Our 5th time here. The service was great & crab legs were awesome! I really can't review any of the other food items, as I only go for the crab legs! My husband & I probably ate 8 pounds! Use a coupon and go between 3:30-4:30 & get $5 off each person! We'll be back!

Crab legs were small, but ok flavor, nothing special. Very overpriced for all the food. The prime rib was the worst I've ever had. I tried a variety of foods, and all tasted as though it had been there all day. I do not recommend this place.

This is a great place to eat with your family. The crab legs are hot and fresh! Plus, they have someone serving them so you don't have to worry about someone hogging them all! I ate crab legs and more crab legs! Honestly, I think that's all I had there! But there are things for the kids who won't eat... More
