By the sign stating live mermaids we thought it was a strip club at first lol but its actually a family place with a huge variety buffet, souvenir store and a mermaid aka girl in a pool which you can take a pic...

The buffet was good...for a buffet I guess. Its a little pricey but you can get crab legs, prime rib and steaks so that helps to make up for it. When my daughter saw the advertisement for "live mermaids" she was dying to go so we decided to give it a try. NOT AT ALL what we were expecting. I... More

I wanted this place to be as great as the reviews, but we knew pulling into the parking lot at barely 7 pm to see less than a dozen cars was a sign! $100 to feed two adults and two kids which wouldn't be bad if the food was decent. All the seafood looked as if t hadn't been turned... More

Seafood House is a vacation tradition for my family. We have been visiting Seafood House (formerly Seafare) while on vacation for over five years. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The "Live Mermaids" were a huge hit for our children (5 and 2 years old). The experience of seeing my 5 year old son enjoy eating crab legs, deviled... More

During our recent 5 nights in Myrtle Beach, we ate here twice! In addition to all of the side dishes and salads, there's a huge selection of seafood and even a carving station with prime rib for those who aren't particularly fond of fish. Everything was very fresh and attractively presented; the staff was very pleasant. As I wrote in... More

A little long, but worth the read! Our family has been coming to the beach for vacation for about 5 years now. We always eat at the Seafood House at least once, sometimes twice for each vacation. I am shocked at these bad reviews. When you walk in the door, you immediately feel as though you are in a museum.... More

Crab legs were very good. They were all large and full of meat. Went on a Sunday between 12 - 3, and received $6 off for a price of $21, which does not include soda. Water was free. They do offer alcohol, but not necessary for a buffet. All fried seafood was average. Prime rib was good and tender. Desserts... More

We were reading reviews for all the local buffets before going. We were unsure about this one because of mixed reviews but were very pleasantly surprised. The "mermaid" was super cute for all the kids and really interacted with them. Sounds cheesy but was actually super cute! The food selection was great and the desert bar was over the top.... More
