Crab legs were wonderful, would have loved some warm peel and eat shrimp rather than the on ice kind they were serving up. The wait was forever. They took our picture while waiting in line then tried to sell it to us for 10.00! Oh and the ice cream machine was broke. The 3 stalls in the bathrooom made the... More

The food was not worth $29 for all you can eat. The seafood sucked and the deserts came out of a can, not home made at all. The ice was the only thing worth eating. I really can for the snow crab legs which were dry and no taste to them. I have grown up east seafood all my life,... More

Go early and go hungry! Look for coupons to take away the sting of the $29.99 each Buffett price. Food was fresh, hot and tasty. Service was great and it was a very nice variety. Plenty of crab legs and prime rib. Do wish offered more selection of non battered and fried seafood.

Went for celebration of son's birthday. Food was okay and plentiful. Problem came at the end when time to pay the check. We asked if they gave a discount to veterans and our server went to check. One of the managers came to our table. She asked for some type of military ID before she could give it. Did not... More

29.95 a person!!! Whoa! That's a lot for my husband and I. We had no idea it was that expensive or we would have never went. However, we stayed. The place was okay. A lot to choose from on the buffet of course, but the over all taste was average. We wont return. There are cheaper seafood buffets at Myrtle... More

Excellent buffet for seafood lovers. Unlimited crab legs and almost every other type of seafood. The foods was hot, tasty and perfectly seasoned. The service was great and we were promptly, which is rare with a larger party (there were six of us). A bit pricey, but worth it.

In overall the food is ok but the appearance of the buffet is not nice at all - floors are dirty, the pasta station does not look nice, the Japanese sashimi area is not appealing, there was some liquid under the Mac and cheese. The crab legs and crab cakes were excellent. We found this buffet pricey for the conditions... More

With over 170 items on the buffet, you're sure to find lots of things to enjoy. There is seafood (and lots of it) as well as steak and other meat. Plenty of veggies and salad bar offerings. Many different deserts, but be sure to look on the top shelf so as not to miss anything! The staff is very friendly... More

We looked on their website and saw where if you are seated during a certain time of day you either get a 5 dollars off per adult buffet, or 4, or 3. We came between 2:30 and 3:30pm which gave us a 5 dollars off per buffet so we ended up paying 24.95 per meal. It was sooo worth it... More

we have been going to this restaurant for at least 10 years and everything gets better each year. The price has gone up and quality of food has don't the same. We always go to early bird so that we can use a coupon for $5 off which is great. The service is great also. I would recommend it to... More
