Surprising Buffet

I have to start by saying I am not a fan of buffets. We dined about 6 pm and were greeted nicely and taken right to a table. Our server was Ivan and he was very nice and removed the dishes and baskets (she'll disposal) promptly. I enjoyed the food. It was fresh and flavorful and warm. There are... read more

Good selection. The crab legs are very good, and also enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms and oysters Rockefeller. Great food and good service.

I have been to this restaurant multiple times. I tried it a couple of years ago as I did not want to wait at one of the other popular buffets everyone goes to. I was surprised when I got there as to how large the buffet is. There is something for everyone, especially kids. My kids loved the mermaids and... More

Not your typical review here....I own a service company that caters to a huge amount of restaurants on the Grand Strand. This place blows my mind! For the volume of food and customers the these folks take care of every day, the kitchen is immaculate. I assure you...the attention to detail here is unmatched. It's not often that you see... More

I was a little hesitant about going to a buffet, because I can never eat the $$ cost of the buffet. But when I was asked I decided to go and try it out. I was glad I did, the crab legs were SO delicious! I ate so many crab legs, I know I got my moneys worth. The rest... More

Seafood House is the best buffet on the Grand Strand, Last time we visited this restaurant, food was great, this year the food is absolutely fantastic. I have never seen crab legs this huge in my life, fried oysters & scallops were unbelievable.

The theme is great, but if I want to pay for a theme I will go to a show. The seafood on the bar was horrible. Most of the steamed seafood was overcooked and rubbery, the fresh oysters were frozen over and the mussels tasted bad. The frozen drink I ordered tasted like all alcohol and was not even a... More

When you walk in, there's a giant pirate ship and the food is placed there, with cannon doors on the side. Everything about the place is decorated to look like a real pirate atmosphere. The staff is dressed up like real pirates, there is even a mermaid swimming around! The food is always fresh and there's plenty to go around.... More
