Had the seafood buffet at Hook's; it was awesome! Delicious crab legs and tons of seafood, great servers and plenty of side items. It's not a huge place, which is all the better in my book, but we have rarely had to wait. This is the first restaurant we go to when we go to Myrtle Beach and usually eat... More

We went during dinner time. The crap legs were ample enough for a packed restaurant all of the items I got were good except the prime rib which doesn't seem to taste good on any buffet.

This was the first seafood restaurant we stopped at on our vacation and it was THE BEST! The food was amazing! I'm pretty sure they have the best hushpuppies I have ever eaten! Wonderful food and our server was excellent!

Had dinner at Hooks last night it was recommended to me by locals. They did not mislead me. The food was great. I like grilled fish and I had several options. The crab legs were large and bright orange. As anybody who watches the crab show on TV knows snow crab is caught in different regions of the ocean. Sometimes... More

we eat here each year and it's amazing each time! the bars were well filled and hot. I am happy to find cold crab legs on a bar, i prefer cold. the server was on top of her tables, keeping the drinks filled and the empty plates and leg bowls off the table. we love Hook's and we look forward...

Good seafood but it is a little pricey. $27 for an adult buffet but you get crab legs and you can find coupons for it. I wish they would have had more options that weren't seafood and better desserts but it is a great place to eat and very clean.

I enjoyed the buffet. A very good variety of seafood and desserts. Cost is around 28.00 per person. Very crowded on the evening we went but only waited about 3 minutes before we were seated. Great service.

The seafood here is amazing, but the price is alittle much. All of us never go because most can't eat $30 worth of seafood. If you can confidently eat that much food, then go here! It is in a convinent place.

Skip this place, not worth the money. Selection was limited and they don't tell you until your seated that it is $40 if you want the lobster
