Excellent. Our family of 50 enjoyed every minute of our Crabby Mike's experience. The food was wonderful and fresh. The hospitality was wonderful, our servers were very attentive, we were met by the manager and it was a great experience even down to the parking lot DJ and the dancing. Great job Mike! Keep it up and we will be... More

We go to Crabby Mike's every time we are in Myrtle Beach. We have tried other all you can eat seafood places in Myrtle Beach, but nothing compares to Crabby Mike's. Their crab legs are always steamed just right, never watery or tough. I love their mac and cheese. My husband loves raw oysters. They did not have them on... More

We ate here while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. The seafood on the buffet was very good which I suppose you expect at a seafood buffet restaurant. What surprised me though was the non-seafood items that were available and how good they were. The BBQ ribs were very moist and tasty with plentiful meat on the ribs. There were also some... More

Crabby Mikes was some of the best seafood buffet ever, my husband and I ate there for his big 50 tonight. The crab legs was great, the deviled crab was so fresh, key lime pie to die for. The greatest waitress ever, her name was Katy M and she worked so hard to ensure we had excellence service. All the... More

The family stopped at mikes while vacationing at Myrtle. It was a weeknight about 8 pm. When we walked in several servers and a manager were standing at the desk. Nobody said hello, welcome, or any sort of an indication they wanted another customer. There were probably 60 people seated and still eating. I asked the (I assume to be... More

We have eaten here before, but very disappointed this time. All the fried food was over cooked, crab legs were soggy... Nothing left us feeling really satisfied.

My wife and I ate here on a Friday night. We arrived at 4:30, and got seated right away. It is highly advised that you come as close to 4 as possible! By 5pm, there was already a wait time to get in (30 minutes)....also, they don't open until 4. Anyways.....the food was fantastic! There was a huge and tasty... More

I went to Crabby Mike's on the last night of my vacation this year, and I didn't eat very much all day so I could be ready to shovel it all in! I enjoyed their fried shrimp, shrimp and grits, and their peanut butter pie especially. You may have to wait a while - on a slower Saturday night I... More

I ate myself sick with the crab legs. They are so good. Although it is kinda expensive, it is well worth the $$. You cannot buy them at the grocery store and eat as many for this price!

You are right! You can not buy and cook the Crab Legs for what you can eat here! If you bought just 2 clusters at any other restaurant it would cost at least $26....and here you can eat all you want for $29! Well worth it! Thanks for noticing and for the great review! Please join us again soon and... More

Crabby Mike's has the best seafood and selection in Myrtle Beach!! From lobster, crab legs, shrimp to prime rib, salad bar and dessert. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. This is by far our favorite place to eat on vacation! You won't be disappointed!
