Fast paced

It was okay for a buffet restaurant. I think that more kids items need to be offered and perhaps a larger bathroom would help. Standing in line for 15 minutes with a toddler is not recommended.

My family went to this place for the first time and we loved it. From my picky granddaughter to my future son-in-law that only ate crab legs, and then the rest of us that dined on seafood, steaks, and the awesome pasta bar all of us walked out without any complaints! There was something for everyone and no one left... More

Great fresh food and friendly service! We have ate here 3 years in a row and it's still our favorite place to go. Seafood, hibachi, pasta, EVERYTHING! For a family of 5, ages 4, 10, 12 and 2 adults it was $90 and worth every penny. We ate the 3 different nights while at the beach and every time it... More

Decent food as a result of quick turn over and large volume. I would have give this place four stars if they did a better job keeping up the appearance of the dinning area. We got seated in the bar area, carpeted floors - the room smelled like butt. Which makes me think the leaders, and owner walk through this... More

We just came from eating there and what a great experience! We got seated quickly and they asked if we had been there before. When we said no, they proceeded to tell us what was where. But unfortunately, the girl seemed to talk in the other direction and we didn't hear her. But we figured it all out and they... More

This was our first stop once arriving in Myrtle Beach, it was not a disappointment at all. Everyone in our party enjoyed themselves, especially the adults crab legs is what we came for and we conquered that task with no problem. There were so many items on the buffet we didn't get to try them all, but everything we tried... More

Good food except oysters were overcooked.great waitress. Little pricy but my daughter loves this place. I think it's the giant crab over the building. Will return next time in Myrtle Beach.

So much food to choice from. We come back every year. Mostly because the kids demand it. The price is right. However, sometime they force you to hurry up, so they can turn over the tables quicker. Stay put and eat. Kids have fun eating here.

Promptly seated. The seafood portion of the buffet was actually pretty good. The prime rib was overcooked and not worth eating. The desserts were not good. $30 per person is acceptable for adults but the same price for children is about twice as high as it should be.
