For what we spent here, I could have went to my favorite place (Joe's Crab Shack) Very disappointed in the buffet style food. Had to pay $10 extra to get lobster, NO thank you!

We came here since my boyfriend wanted all you can crab legs. The all you can buffet was $29.00 a person and if you wanted soda or sweet tea it was $3.00 each. There were plenty of options on the buffet... crab legs, flounder, shrimp, mushrooms, cornbread, mac and cheese, rice, clam strips, prime rib, etc. The food was good,... More

We visited Crabby Mikes last night and enjoyed our crab legs, but the selection of other items was not as plentiful as our favorite spot, Giant Crab, on restaurant row. The mussels and clams were extremely buttery and not to tasty. The prime rib was full of amazing flavor, but overcooked. Also, not a fan of the seating. If you... More

went there because a family member works there. Long waits during the summer dinner hour(s), but less than 5 minutes in late September. Food is a bit higher quality than other buffets I've eaten at and the servers are more attentive.

We stopped here on a whim on the last night of our week long vacation to Myrtle Beach... We pretty much had already eaten everywhere we normally go and some new places we had wanted to try.... We were hoping to have some good seafood before heading back to the hills of West Virginia. We were greeted by very friendly... More

Took advice from other reviews and thoroughly enjoy our meal. Crab legs tasty, good variety of shrimp and fish. Prime rib perfectly rare for our taste. Plus for the southerners, best collard greens too. Excellent service. Yes it is pricey, but you pay big for these types of food anywhere.

First time I've ever tried crab legs, or catfish, or talapia. Billy, our waiter, showed me how to break the crab legs. (Thanks) Best $29 I've spent on food in a long time. If you go away hungry it's your own fault. Great food and great service.
