Preston's grand buffet offers succulent meats and seafood, along with deliciously seasoned vegetables, fresh baked breads and pastries, and oh so much more!Seafood lovers will delight in the variety they find here. The selection is awesome! Besides wonderful shrimp, fish and oysters, Preston's offers scallops, deviled crab, steamed mussels, craw fish and shrimp, salmon, seafood casserole, a seafood medley and more! You can choose to have all you can eat crab legs, which are cooked to order and brought to the table hot with warm butter. If meat is what you crave, Preston's offers prime rib, BBQ ribs, several chicken dishes as well as pork. Pasta lovers aren't left out either!The folks in the kitchen at Preston's do a great job with the buffet's homemade recipes of vegetables and side dishes. Tasty as they are, you'll think Grandma spent all day simmering them on the stove.The salad bar alone is worth the trip! There's 15 feet of colorful, crisp fruit and vegetables with a variety of creamy dressings as well as shrimp and seafood salad, cold boiled shrimp, pasta salad, potato salad, coleslaw and others.The ideal accompaniment to any meal is the melt-in-your-mouth yeast rolls from the in-house bakery. And save room for dessert! Preston's bakers whip up a delightful assortment of fruit cobblers, cookies, cakes and even yummy toppings with ice cream!Preston's a great place to take kids. The kid's bar includes cheeseburgers, french fries, chicken tenders, corn dogs, pizza and nachos with cheese. Not only will they find plenty of things they like, children under 3 eat free!Guests who opt to pass up the buffet will find plenty to like on Preston's full menu including chicken, seafood and steaks.A full bar featuring cocktails and a variety of beers is available. While outstanding food is enough to set Preston's apart fro most restaurants, you'll also love the attentive service. Jane McMichael and her friendly staff have a loyal following of guests who come back each year. It's no wonder Preston's has been one of Myrtle Beach's most popular restaurants for 22 years.

Well worth the visit!

My family of 4 plus my parents visited while staying close by and had a great experience. The buffet options are endless at this restaurant. While there is a premium to eat here I do believe you get your money's worth if you come here hungry. My suggestion is to have a small lunch and fill up here... read more

Visited on July 27 around 5:30 pm. .Should have taken the hint when we first arrived, that there was no line and they were not busy for a reason. Every buffet we have ever went too was a wait. The hostess was in no hurry to seat us. She never made eye contact and was very short with us. She... More

Food was really good. But if we were to go back it would be because of Gena and her service! Great attitude, really hustled even though they were slammed.

She joked with me about the crab legs- this is an all you can eat buffet- but she brought so much crab to the table, there was... More

This was our first time at the restaurant. Both our sons love crab legs, as do my wife and I. I enjoyed everything on the buffet. Great/friendly service as well. We will be going back again. Make sure to look for coupons. We got there at 4:45 pm and it was not crowded.

Service was extremely accommodating to our group--5 adults, 1 teen, and 1 toddler. Server came repeatedly to our table to see about refill of drinks, brought more napkins, and extra forks (toddler still learning the proper way to use utensils), and the freshly steamed King Crab Legs for the 2 who ordered them. We had an early meal coupon and... More

I never write reviews but downloaded this app so I could. My family and I had dinner at Preston's tonight and I am so glad we did!
