We had agreattimein Seafood House. They're providing outstanding service, the food was excellent, crab legs was the best. We are not coming to east coast much, but if we are back definitely will be back to seafood house.

Typical Myrtle Beach buffet with mostly fried seafood and some shellfish. This place definitely doesn't threaten Captain Georges as far as seafood preparation and selection go. The service was decent but the kids were disappointed in the non-moving mermaid.

Best to go on Sat between 12-3. There is a coupon available. Food is all good. Service is good. They even take pics of you for a souvenir. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for children.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. After reading your review, it seems like price is the issue. We're displeased to hear you do not enjoy the food, and do not believe the quality matches the price. We take great pride in making sure we're providing the best food & service on the Grand Strand.

Terrible food, every thing is cold. No response from management. Quality of food is poor. Microwave food is better than this place. Should have went to McDonald to get better seafood or food in general. Way over priced. I don't know how they stay open. No way they get repeat customers.

Thank you for the feedback. Although we appreciate it, we're slightly concerned. We have 3 managers on duty 7 days a week and they visit the tables constantly to ensure all guests are happy with both the food and service. Any problems are dealt with immediately. More
