Family loved the crab legs

Son loved all the varieties of seafood, mussels, crab legs, and fried clams. Both girls ate the crab legs and loved them. Country dishes were ok... Everything was very clean, hot food was hot, cold food was cold. If the kids had not eaten the crab legs, the price would have been too high.

Our family had dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed everything on the buffet. Wait staff was very helpful - food was fresh (and abundant). Won't be disappointed if you come here for a great dinner - just be plenty hungry!

We came up from Beaufort, South Carolina for our Anniversary just to eat the Lobster and Crab Legs, and it was worth every moment. We were surprised with the crowd when we arrived, but the wait was short and swift despite being told it would be about fort-five minutes. We only wait about twenty-minutes before we were seated and ironically... More

I have eaten at Crabby Mike's four times in the last two years, and each time the food has been consistently very good.

The boiled shrimp are boiled the perfect amount of... More

Food was good but not great. Had crab legs that were fresh as they were empty as soon as they were put out. The rest of the food was good but not outstanding.
