Nice selection

We loved the crab legs! They had a wide variety of food to choose from. We paid extra for the all you can eat lobster. We weren't crazy about the lobster though. They bring you out a whole lobster that you have to figure out how to disassemble. It would have been better if they brought you just the... read more

This was my 2nd time going to this restaurant with my family. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Food was so good and flavorful. My husband got all you can eat lobster. It's worth the money!! We look forward to going back next year.

My family and I went to Myrtle Beach to attend a funeral. I wanted to take the opportunity to eat good seafood while at the beach and the group decided on this seafood buffet.

1st time at a seafood buffet and it was delicious. A little bit pricey but totally worth it (after all, it is an all you can eat buffet). We visited in december and there were few tourists so we enjoyed a quiet, lovely evening.

It's always a hit or miss when eating at a buffet in November when there are fewer tourists. We went at about 5:30 and the place was practically empty. There was some good food, but I don't eat crab legs so it is a little pricey. It wouldn't have been so bad if we had a decent waiter. He brought... More

4th year in a row visiting and the lobsters were better then ever this year. Last year they were broken and messy, and they were taking a claw for mac and cheese. This year they are better tasting now then they have ever been. Size is not very important since it is all you can eat, but the flavor was... More

We ate at Hook's Calabash Seafood for our first time Tuesday. The food was very fresh and a good variety from seafood, to chicken, to pork chops. They had tator tots, French fries, and onion rings. The waitress was very efficient and extremely nice. The restaurant was very clean. It is a little expensive for what you get, compared to... More

We went here for supper one night because we wanted a buffet. Our son loves buffets, it was expensive but we decided to go for it. It had a large selection of food to pick from, my son was excited that you could add crab legs and decided to try them for the first time. The staff was very nice... More
