“Good food,great value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

First off if you get the monster coupon book,which you can find at any welcome center or grocery store,hooks offers a 5dollar discount before 5 pm and a dollar or so off at different times after. They have a Buffett and a all you can eat crab legs one also.they also offer an all u can eat lobster Buffett, this is the only place that I've heard of that offers both and at a good price. The food is always good, fresh and atmosphere nice.

“GET JOSE AS YOUR SERVER!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

We were here 12-29-12. Hands down one great server is Jose. He's worked here for years, he's fit, professional, and mature. No questions about it get Jose as your server or just get. The discount coupon doesn't cover the additional lobster dinner at all. As far as we are concerned the $94.00 for the two of us was actually a bargain. We had three plates of seafood and eight lobsters each. So I grabbed my handy dandy calculator to do the math. At home at the grocery store lobsters are $12.99 a pound. So 16 lobsters multiplied by $13 equals...$208. Plus we didn't have to clean em, cook em, serve em, or do the dishes. And that cost would just have been for the lobsters, not all the other foods, drinks, and ambiance. So yes it's expensive. The food was excellent. I can't say enough great things about this place except that it has only gotten better with time. Better management, keeping the great servers n weeding out the dead weight.

“Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Great atmosphere, food, and service! A little pricy, but it was an all you can eat buffet. You also had the option of ordering from the menu (very limited). Some of the items on the buffet included: oysters, shrimp, calamari, crab legs, scallops, hush puppies, a variety of fish, pork, chicken, baked potatoes, rice, soup, and a variety of desserts. They also offered all you can eat lobster for an additional price. Buffet was $24.99 & drinks $1.95.

“The Best Calabash Seafood Buffet ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We had the most amazing server named Benjamin. He was so nice, kind, attentive, humble, helpful, he was the best. Also, Gabby the hostess at the front was an angel and so caring and considerate, same for the manager, I didn't get his name, but he was great. The best staff and the most delicious food ever. Crab Legs were the best and all the seafood. I been to the other buffets, but this buffet was my favorite and looking forward to going again and again, it's number one in Myrtle Beach, SC and in the world. I wouldn't go any other place.
