First time to Myrtle Beach. I was extremely impressed and thats hard to do for me because I work in customer service. But the restaurant was clean, the staff was friendly, and the customer service was excellent. I would advise anyone visiting Myrtle Beach to try this restaurant. The food was delicious!

Awesome buffet with most any type fish, seafood, steak, etc. that you could ask for! I was pleased to the fact they had so much seafood prepared different ways... fried, baked, steamed, etc. Two or three different cuts of steak. Service was great and of course it is all you can eat for less than $ 30 a person.

Staff was very nice. Food was good but not excellent. For $31 dollars it should have been excellent.

Will not go back. Very pricy for the quality of food. Waited out side only to be disappointed. Have spent way less for better food and atmosphere.

While on vacation we have eaten at seafood buffet restaurants in Myrtle Beach in the past so we wanted to try a new one. We were quite disappointed this time. The fried foods were left out to long as they were overcooked and hard to eat. The salad lettuce was old and brown. We didn't have a choice to eat... More

Not worth $30.00. Drinks are expensive and taste bad. Been to a less expensive all you can eat seafood and the food was great and had more seafood on the menu

Spent $112 for family of 4...ouch!!! This place was not good...at all. Staff was nice and the restaurant seemed clean...but the food was horrible. Shrimp Scampi was like chewing rubber. Popcorn shrimp cold and bland. I had a cold piece of ribeye that tasted un-seasoned. Mashed potatos tasted like instant. Clams were chewy. I did like the Coconut Shrimp...but alas,... More

The service was terrible and don't order off the menu. You don't get what you ordered and they give you a different type of fish than what you ordered. I guess they think people are not smart enough to know their seafood. The price is definitely not worth the value of what you get.... Not sure how the buffet is... More

We had 4 people and enjoyed everything the buffet had to offer. Fresh fruit, soup and of course- crab legs! Service was en pointe and friendly! No complaints whatsoever.
