Way too much great food

There are so many delicious choices but my favorite are the crab legs. I have eaten at Crabby Mikes many times and the crab legs are consistently filled with good chunks of meat and easy to pop open. All food bins on the buffet bars are kept full and there is so much selection of not only seafood... read more

We did have a 45 minute wait but sat at the bar until our table was ready. Large buffets with crab legs, shrimp, oyster, clam, fish, scallop, prime rib, ham, sides, desserts, etc. Most were prepared in multiple ways whether steamed, fried, baked, or in mixtures. Market price was $29.95 when we were there. The waiter emptied our shell baskets,... More

My wife & I ate at Crabby Mikes on May 18th, & we were treated like Royalty. The prime rib was a little more rare than I like, & mentioned this to my waitress. 2 minutes later, the chef came to our table & asked me how I liked my prime rib. He came back a few minutes later with... More

This was the first time we had eaten here, we have always eaten at the Original Benjamin's, we liked some things better here and some things not as much. The things that were better: the desserts, they had very small pieces of pie cut which is a great idea, that was you can try more than one! The peanut butter,... More

We ate here and the buffet was not very big and not refilled often. The only thing we liked were the crab legs and the company!

Prepare to be in seafood heaven if you like seafood. We must have eaten 3 lbs of crab legs each. Very tasty and hot. Shrimp and other items on the buffet were great. The prime rib is very good. Love the hush puppies. Good service too. N

Be sure you are hungry when you eat here. The food was so good. The buffet was kept full with fresh high quality items. It had such a wide variety of seafood and other items such as prime rib, chicken, and more. There was something for everyone. Be sure to save room for the delicious homemade desserts. The staff are... More
