Good as good gets

5 stars is saved for the very best of the best in my eyes. I had to go back and forth on this one. I've eaten at many a Calabash ( myrtle beach buffet with crab legs) and Crabby Mikes is by far the best. The wait time was spot on, the drinks were well made, decent house wine, and... read more

We had dinner here while reconnecting with my sister who I hadn't seen in years! The server was very efficient but also allowed us to visit. Never felt rushed even with a huge line waiting. Crab legs were awesome and they kept supplying freshly cooked,legs. Hubby had all you can eat lobster and definitely got his money's worth!

While waiting outside to be seated, Crabby Mike comes out to visit his patrons. They have a number of things to do while you're waiting. Once inside, the food is great and our waitress was fast and friendly. A hostess also came over to talk to us about why we were there and how we found out about their restaurant.... More

We've been here a ton of times and while it's fine, there are much better buffets out there. This place is always packed, there's always a wait for a table, (unless you go as soon as they open or off season) and if you're going for crab legs, be prepared to wait for them as well. They also don't keep... More

We eat at Crabby Mike's every time we visit the Myrtle Beach area. I am not a fan of buffets in general, but Crabby Mike's knows how to do it right. They have an extensive menu that covers all types of seafood from broiled to steamed to fried, vegetables and sides, fresh fruit and salad, as well as a few... More

Loved Crabby Mike's! It was great! They offered all types of seafood as well as southern food as well! They have fried and boiled seafood as well. They offered kids foods as well to include Pizza,chicken finger and fries! I will go back to Mike's when returning to Myrtle Beach for sure!

Crabby Mike's Calabash has become a tradition for my family. It is right down the street from our timeshare and it is a great place to eat and fellowship. The food is good and fresh and the atmosphere is fun and lively. We love this place!

Awesome buffet. All types of food. But the crab legs were the best and they kept them comming. Seems to be a family run business. I will definitely go back.

Great buffet with fresh crab legs. I enjoyed that the wait staff brought you the clean plates and you did not have to wait in line at the buffet for them and have everyone handle them. The buffet also advertised that there were no lines and you could just jump in and grab what you needed...once you realized this it... More
