“Always a favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I always eat there when I visit Myrtle Beach. I've tried other seafood buffets, but none compare. Mike's has a large assortment of food that you would expect at a Seafood restaurant. All of their food is fresh and fried appropriately. Nothing was over-cooked. Their selection of deserts was great. Unlike other places, they offered more than just jello and dry cake. The peanut butter pie and baklava was to die for

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Very good place to eat. The layout of the restaurant was very well done. You don't only have to like fish to enjoy eating here. The food was all very very good.

Our waiter, John K, was outstanding. He really knew his stuff. Introduced himself, and told us that we are at the best Buffet around. He kept our drinks full, and the table clean. Very friendly, and made our dinner enjoyable.

“great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

they were really busy but they kept the food fresh and full only thing i didn't like is my dad has had 2 knee surgeries and even though there were tables close to the buffet they sat us way in the back corner making it kind of hard on him.

“Good Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

My husband loves buffets and I usually always object to them because of the higher prices but we decided to visit Crabby Mikes on this trip.i was very surprised at how well it was. There are many choices to choose and most the things I tried were good. My favorites were the scallops, collard greens, macaroni, and peanut butter pie. If you want to go Tia buffet I would highly recommend this one. My husband feasted on the crab legs which were also yummy and plentiful. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful too!
