Our family of four adults ate here for the first time. We'd eaten at several other All-You-Can-Eat seafood buffets which feature crab legs (Capt. George's, Original Benjamin's, Bennett's, etc.), and found Crabby Mike's to be no different than the others, so not sure why it's supposed to be "the best." The crab legs were plentiful, if a bit soggy, but... More

I truly understand. As I stated in my previous review, the food was good and a large variety. Decor was awesome. Staff was friendly, professional and efficient. My only issue was the fact I'm not into a seafood buffet. If that's to your liking, then this would be an awesome place to feed your hungry. It was totally my fault... More

Crab legs! Don't forget to ask for oysters because they are not on the bar anymore. Prime rib melts in your mouth. Get a coupon online or in coupon books.

Hi Beth! I love the title of your review, "awesome". I am glad you enjoyed your experience here. I would put our prime rib up against most any steak house in the area. It is our second most complimented item behind the crab legs but sometimes edged out by our fried oysters. Thanks for posting the review. Come see us... More

Our first visit to a seafood buffet. We couldn't wait.. didn't eat all day in anticipation. Well I guess we both left there a little disappointed. Maybe you need to go early? We got there at 7:45 pm. There was a lot of fried seafood and very few rawbar. The fried was lukewarm at best and seemed like it was... More

Visited this sea food buffet while on vacation. Price was a little higher than other buffets as you might expect. Selections were varied with many choices. Deep fried everything (shrimp, clams, hush puppies) was available. A noisy environment but very good food. Service was good also.

Thanks for giving us a try. I am glad you enjoyed the food and the service. Since we are geared towards families and offer a fun, dynamic dining experience, it can get a bit loud when we are crowded. It reminds me of a large family dinner over the holidays with everyone laughing and having a great time. I hope... More

After studying the reviews on the internet for the various seafood buffets, we choose Crabby Mike's. We also had a $3 off coupon from one of the magazines which cinched the deal. We arrived at 5PM. Since it was October, the place was not crowded and we were immediately seated. The place is very casual with metal chairs, and open... More

We tried Crabby Mike's while in Myrtle Beach on vacation on 10/26/14. The food was really fresh, hot and delicious. We did not care for the scallops as they seemed really greasy and were very small but everything else was great. The service was great and there were no long lines around the buffets. Crab legs were plentiful and they... More
