This place never stops being busy, and for good reason- it's delicious! We went around 5pm, and it there was a 45 min-1 hr wait. We were able to go to the bar to get something to drink while we waited, and there was a dj with hula hoops outside for the kids. Our daughter LOVED that, and we appreciated... More

My husband & I have been coming to Crabby Mike's for 15 years! Today, along with our 2 children, ages 12 & 8, had the best experience yet! We had a very tall waiter named Mike from West Virginia who took such great care of us! My daughter said we should ask for him next time!

This was our first trip to Crabby Mikes and I am so glad we made it!! Traveling with young children can be a challenge sometimes, and when we decided to eat dinner here and the wait was 45 minutes I almost said no thanks, but when we saw the activities going on in front of the building we decided to...

We went on a family trip to Surfside Beach with MANY other extended family members. Crabby Mike's was able to work with us and set up tables for all us. (I think we took up at least 2 long tables and one smaller table) The wait was long to get a table and not only because of our big party... More

Since we were hungry and with a little one, I went ahead and put our name on the w waiting list. I was told... More

We look forward to our Crabby Mike's visit every year and we are never disappointed! The food, and the service, is excellent! They have something for everyone, including the most picky eater in our family. The variety, and quality, of the food selections also make dining there a huge value! It is amazing!

First off thank you Jon L. For the awesome service! Waiter of the year for sure. Clean plates brought to the table tea never half way and pealings were removed often. Don't let the full parking lot scare you was a modest 30 minute wait. Today's market price for the Buffett was 30 a person. They have any sea food... More

Service was excellent and so was food. Very busy atmosphere and a bit crowded, but no so much to ruin the experience.
