All you can eat crab legs and soooooo much more, a wonderful place to eat with a fun atmosphere and the variety of food is out of this world! Make sure you get there early it gets busy very quickly.

Best crab legs I have ever had, they were cooked to perfection, easy to crack and the meat came out in whole pieces. I'm sure that all the other food on the bar is good....I just don't know because all I ever eat when I am there are the crab legs with the melted butter. Favorite place to eat crab... More

We've visited Crabby Mike's for 5 years while vacationing so we know to arrive at least 30 minutes early because there is usually a wait but it's always been worth it: We've never been disappointed there.This year we were lucky and surprisingly seated within 5 minutes. Our server was great and the seafood buffet was too. No complaints.

First time to Crabby Mikes. We had to wait for about 1:45 min. But they had a DJ outside which played games with the kids and kept them entertained! The food was good ALL YOU CAN EAT!! Crab Legs and Prime Rib!!:)). Service was good also!!

This was our fourth visit and the food is great. On this particular visit the service was awful. Drink refills were minimum at best and the waitress acted like it was a burden to serve us. Will surely be back though because we love the food. Bought a Crabby Mikes hat so still a supporter.

This is a very large seafood Buffett that serves a variety of many types of food. However, the wait at the Buffett and to get your food was a challenge especially if you have young children. We went right at 4:00 PM and there was a mad rush at this time and when we left they were on an hour... More

We waited over an hour and a half for a table for 5 people. There was a DJ playing popular dance music out front, and he was giving away tshirts and other prizes and playing games with guests waiting for a table. The charge for the buffet was more than I expected, and more than other Calabash restaurants in Myrtle... More
