We take our entire family (12) to Crabby Mike's twice every trip. It is our first dinner in town and our last dinner in town. I have recommended Crabby Mike's to all my friends and family. This is the best seafood buffet in the area. We have tried several from north Myrtle Beach to Murrell's Inlet and none even compare.... More

Could have eaten at golden car or ryans much cheaper. The food was ok but nothing spectacular. The best part of the visit was the server.

Went to Crabby Mike's last night at request of my daughter who wanted Crab... as usual neither of us were disappointed. Food and service were great as always. Two thumbs up from my daughter and from me to.

For some people quantities everything and they have to hit the buffet or they are not on vacation. This is the perfect spot for them. I'm glad it is here for them. I'll go down the street for real seafood.

We have been coming here for years. They serve the largest crab legs in the area and are constantly replenishing them. They close for the winter and reopen in February. Some people say that they are over priced but I say you get what you pay for. If you have tried other sea food buffets you know what I am... More

Focus here is on feeding you quantity, not quality. Extremely expensive for this type restaurant serving this type of food. Almost any specialty restaurant will beat the price, and the quality of the food, but may not allow you to eat so much food.

I have been to other places that give you the same food and the same service, it is just a great place to go to! and if you are a resident you get a discount..

I'm sure in the summer when the price is lower it's a great deal, but now in February for $30 per person, you feel like you can't get your money's worth. The food is good, but I feel like it wasn't worth the price. $160 to feed a family of 4, I don't think I will be back.

We frequently camp in Myrtle Beach and have for several years. We've eaten at several seafood buffet restaurants in town. By far Crabby Mikes is the best. The crab legs are always hot and full. They have a great variety of other seafood and the service is always good.
