Pretty good, clean and not crowded

I have been to Myrtle Beach close to 10 times and this was the first time I ate at this Calabash. Previously, I used to go to The Original Benjamins, right next door each visit. The place was probably just under 40% filled which was a welcomed treat, because The Original Benjamins (was packed... read more

Greeted at the door - FREE Photo - pick up after dinner. What a laugh.. the photo was 2" x 2"... (you could purchase a larger one for $10. Then the food... ugh... very cheap quality. The only item I tasted that was halfway good was the hush puppies. (and they were fresh out of a box).. AVOID this place.

Service is terrible! This was our first visit and we will not be back. We were not greated at the door. Three teenage hostesses stood talking...we started to just walk out. Seated in a high traffic area, very noisy and crowded. Zero atmosphere. Food was average at best. Selection was just OK and buffet was not replenished quickly. Sad sad... More

We tried 4 or 5 seafood buffets in Mrytle and the Giant Crab was by far the best. The food was quality unlike most of the other places that just had a lot of "stuff." The hibachi was excellent and we were pleased with the crab legs. Desserts were very good as well. It's around $30 a person but we... More

We go to Myrtle Beach every year and we finally tried this place in 2012. Our family of 8 loved everything on the menu. From crab legs to chicken wings to that crab imperial, everything tasted great and there were plenty of choices. This is a place we'll be going back to every year from now on. We highly recommend...

The Giant Crab is all you can eat buffet. Good place to go to get all you can eat crab legs and seafood. The food is ok with lots of variety. Our family of 4 spent $90 to eat and that was with 2 kids meals.
