Just ok

Cheap foods at expensive price no better than Shoney's or Ryan's . Service nothing to brag about or house keeping! Crab legs were good but nothing special

We have nothing but good things to say about Hooks. The seafood buffet and service was better than anywhere else we have ever tried at Myrtle Beach. All the seafood was fresh and delicious ! The buffet was very well stocked and had plenty to choose from. With the early bird coupon, it was only 21.95 plus $2 for drinks.... More

The restaurant that we had planned to go to was closed on Sunday's so we went to Hook's. I will tell you when we entered Hook's I was surprised by the cost of the buffet $27.99 per person and was ready to leave right then. I have never seen so much food on a buffet. I believe they covered every... More

I can't say enough good things about our experience at this restaurant last evening. Although we go to hit the crab legs, all of the selections are done RIGHT. Fresh, delicious food, beautiful décor and friendly service. This is our favorite buffet in Myrtle Beach.

We had a large party, we came in and was seated in 5 minutes. Our waiter was friendly and patient with our large crowd. This is my second time and the buffet line was short. They had a large selection of food and my party found that the crab legs, pasta dishes and strawberry shortcake was their favorite. We'll visit... More

We are locals and have been here once before. The place is in a great location to walk to from the beach. It is decorated very nice with a nautical theme. They will take your picture when you sit down and make you a nice little color postcard of you sitting at your table. They try to get you to... More

We asked several locals and researched each seafood buffet in the area. Hands down the locals recommended Hooks. The food was fresh and trays were never empty. The server kept us well plied in waters (after a day on the beach we were all needing the hydration). I see many complaints about the price, but my research showed it was... More

If you like greasy, fried, over priced food this is the place. Inattentive staff. Bathroom was horrific (wonder about the kitchen?) I just can't get past $28 per person for a mediocre buffet. Most restaurants give a pretty good meal for that price. Only reason not terrible was the snow crab legs.

The buffet was had hot, fresh food that did not taste fishy or old. The crab legs were pretty good - close to what you may receive at a sit down. Ambiance and service was great.NO wait and reasonably priced.

Super clean, courteous, well-lit, well tended, and friendly environment. The selection was not as vast as Benjamin's and yet is was 100% better. Thlandslidee food was FRESH and seasoned perfectly, the facilities were CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN, the staff was very friendly, and the manager was speaking with the customers. All of this at 9:30 at night, REALLY? I grew up... More
