My family wanted to try a calabash while in town. We chose this one because of the location and $5 off coupon. Place was nearly empty at 3:30. Server (Heather) gave us a menu. My teenagers (13 and 15) don't really eat $22 worth of food, but non-buffet items were $20 for a dinner. For the two... read more

My family and i throughly enjoyed eating at Bennett's Calabash Seafood for dinner. We were pleased with all of the different dishes on the buffet. The buffet had an equal amount of fried, baked, & broiled foods. They also had wonderful assortment of desserts. Our waitress was terrific. She made sure our tea/soda glasses were always full & constantly picked... More

Lots of items on bar, but food was bland and dried out. Tuna steak was so hard, couldn't even slice into it. All you can eat is nice. Make sure you get the coupon in the coupon book which you can get almost anywhere. Nice salad bar.

You will not go away hungry here! With tax my meal was 32.00 and some change. The selection of seafood is amazing and of course crab legs that are steamed just right (Not Soggy) are included. There is also steak on the buffet which was surprisingly good. My service from Misty here a couple of times was amazing. I will... More

There is,a good balance of fried and grilled/baked seafoid. The crab legs were fresh and buttery... there is a reasonable salad area and a good assortment of deserts. Pricing is reasonable if you enjoy the crab legs. Pricing is a bit high but OK given tourist town pricing

Let me begin by stating that my wife and I don't do buffets because we don't like them. Having said that, we decided to do the local thing and visit one in Myrtle Beach. The only reason we went to Bennett's is because it was very close to our hotel. We had to wait a few minutes to be seated... More

The food was hot and fresh, even though it was late. Everything we had, had a very good flavor and not salty. The buffet was well stocked, even that late and they were never out of anything for any length of time. Service could have been better. The highlight was a young man that was a waiter and very helpful.

$27.99 for a buffet, so pretty good price. This was the BEST buffet I've ever been to at the beach, and the seafood was fabulous. For some odd reason I also enjoyed the pineapple because it was AMAZING. I recommend this place. Good crab legs, fried shrimp, and TARTAR SAUCE. Yummy

BEST SEAFOOD in the Myrtle Beach Area. Been to the others in area and they don't come anywhere close to how good the food is at this restaurant. PRICE WAS cheaper than others with by far more selections and fresh prepared seafood. Service was outstanding
