A shock at the buffet area

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... read 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

I am not a huge seafood fan, but my husband is and he loves Hook's. Also, there is a lot of variety on the buffet, including chicken, ribs, prime rib and pasta in addition to the seafood.

We found this to be a place that had good food but was on the expensive side at nearly $30. I didn't want to have the buffet and planned to order off the menu. But i found $20 for chicken breasts a little ridiculous. I did have the buffet. Salmon was tasty and i enjoyed the salad bar. they do... More

I try to eat here every year when visiting Myrtle Beach. Great food, clean restaurant, wonderful staff. There may be bigger buffets in town, but I don't thing you will find any better. Check the coupon books for great early bird discounts!

While the service was great the food was cold and without taste. The restaurant was clean and the buffet had a variety of foods I definitely recommend looking elsewhere for a good meal.
