Description: 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.

We found Preston's by driving back to Oak Island, NC from Surfside Beach, SC. After checking mixed reviews online we decided to find out for ourselves. We made the hour drive from Oak Island, NC and I am sure glad we did. The crowd was just starting to thin out at 4:00 PM when we arrived for our reservation. The... More

We had visited Preston's several years ago for the regular buffet and the Thanksgiving buffet. I was expecting them to serve lamb as they had on the past thanksgiving buffet. No lamb. The prime rib was an unrecognizable brined, tough, dried out mess. The turkey was good. There was no green bean casserole, no cranberry sauce, no sweet potato casserole... More

We have not served lamb at the restaurant for three years. Our prime rib is served medium rare unless otherwise specified. We apologize for running out of sweet potato casserole and had to substitute with candied yams. We serve fresh green beans in place of a green bean casserole. Our cranberry's are served cold on the salad bar. More

I had read the reviews after I had made my reservation but decided I would still give Preston's a try. We walked in and immediately were greeted by a lovely lady and seated promptly. Less than a minute later the server was at the table, took the drink order and said to go to the buffet. The turkey was whole... More

We went to Preston's on the recommendation of friends who had eaten the "all you can eat crab legs" there before and wanted to return. Three people in our party had the $29.99 all you can eat crab legs brought steaming hot to the table (no waiting for the next round, waitress was prompt to replenish). I on the other... More

I don't know why there are so many bad reviews, but I love to visit this buffet every time I vacation in Myrtle Beach. I love the fact that you can purchase the buffet without crab legs to save money b/c not all of us can afford to go to those $30 buffets! The food on the buffet was great!... More

I don't eat crab legs so I was happy to get the $19.99 buffet without crab legs. My friend paid $10 more for crab legs which were brought out fresh to the table. The selection was decent. I'm not a fan of crabcakes, but theirs are really good and spicy. I was happy to see Bang Bang shrimp on the... More

I attend a conference in Myrtle Beach every year and take my wife along so she can have a nice vacation. We went to Prestons after driving up and down the highway trying to decide on a place.

We are disappointed too! We cook our steak medium for the buffet. We encourage our guest to ask their server for a special order made to your liking. If you love a steak that is medium rare, we will be happy to accommodate your requests. Thank you for visiting Preston's. More

I always enjoy a good buffet with all you can eat crab legs. This place has a separate price for the buffet for those who do not want the crab legs. The waitress brings the crab legs to you and usually she asks you if you want another plate full before you are ready. This is outstanding service. The salad... More
