Buffet.....

Most of the food was pretty good - there was quite a variety although I would have liked more unbreaded choices. It seemed quite pricey to me at around $30 per plate.

I’m posting this review under Bennett’s and Giant Crab as it’s basically a comparison between the two. We were in North Myrtle Beach the third week of August and ate at both locations. Overall observations of 3 adults and a 6 year old: Bennett’s had the better tasting Crab, although both offered plentiful amounts. GC had a hibachi grill, enjoyed... More

I came to this restaurant with severe dairy and peanut allergies. The manager and the waitress (Kelly) were very caring and paid special attention to my needs. I had a wonderful steak, corn on the cob, salad, and fruit. This was one of the best steaks I've ever had. If you or your child has food allergies, this is a... More

I wish I had read the previous reviewer before we went to this place. My wife got sick in the car before we got backtrack to our condo, and I had a sour stomach all night. It is not really calabash style seafood (which is what they advertise) if u want calabash seafood, take a half hour drive north to... More

This place is great! I was in Cherry Grove for a week and ate at Bennett's five times. The crab legs are my favorite and the fried scallops and oysters are really good too. The service is excellent and the place is clean.

Nice large buffett with very good crab legs (which is really why we go to a buffett right!). Plenty of choices to round out the selection and a wait staff that is quick to help and please. Been a few times during the peak season, and usually not a big wait. (I think they get over looked due to the... More

We always go to one buffet while at the beach, mostly because everyone in my family loves crab legs. We got there early (4:30pm) so we could get a table immediately because I have a small child. The buffet was disappointing to say the least. The food looked like it had been sitting out for hours. I got a salad... More

Good buffet, fresh, clean. A bit too much fried for my liking but it was all very good. Reasonable price for a seafood buffet.

The price was up there, but the food was great! There are healthy options, but why? My advice, eat crab and dessert!!!

We prefer this version of Bennett's over the one on restaurant row. Lines are shorter for sure. They don't bring those delicious hush puppies to the table at this one but they are on the buffet. Crab legs are abundant and cooked perfectly. The Bang Bang Shrimp may be my favorite food of the whole week. I made myself sick... More
