Fun Place To Go With A Group

This was our third year vacationing in Myrtle Beach, and our third year choosing Seafood House Buffet for one of our dinners. We had a fun time, but will say that the mermaids appear very uninterested in talking to the kids. They do have a big "tip" bucket there, though. Management seems to have... read more

We tried this place for the first time and it was great. Good food and my daughter loved talking to the mermaids.

The food here was very fresh and tasty. They have a large selection and keep the food well stocked. The service was average. They have live mermaids, but they appeared to be tennagers, which was slightly bizarre/borderline inappropriate; however, they entertained my son. I will revisit this place again!

I was really impressed by the interior of the restaurant. Everything is nice decorated and they have pool with "live mermaids". It is just amazing how much effort have they put in to arrange interior! It is really family and kids friendly restaurant! Food was also awesome! Crablegs and prime rib were really tasty! They have too much different things... More

There is a variety of food items to choose from. The atmosphere is calm, friendly and family oriented. When you get there, don't forget to ask for the restauant's "best waiter, Ivan!"...Bonne appetit!

The food here was really good. I loved the crab legs and my daughter loved the 2 live mermaids swimming in the pond. Staff was nice and pleasant. A little pricey for not a huge selection but all in all it was really good. Would eat here again

We were a little late for dinner, every place had a wait time. We called and were told to come on over. The place is huge. The food was great. Our daughter ended up eating for me as I don't prefer seafood. She ate 5 crab legs bunches (I think thats hows they are served). Staff was very friendly. The... More

We visited this place after not eating for three days because I had a colonoscopy. I was starving and went right for the crab legs. I ate 15 sets of crab legs and nearly every one of them were fantastic. Just make sure you take them off the top. They need to let the trays empty before putting news ones... More

Great selection...a little pricey! If you have children over 12 that are still picky eaters, this is NOT the place for them! Make sure you are ready to eat because you are going to pay for it! But all in all, no complaints!
