The crab legs were good and so was the raw oysters. The wait staff is a different story. Our waiter whose name I can't remember let alone pronounce was more concerned with chit chatting with the local regulars than with his actual customers. Everyone in our group had crab legs so there for we needed the cracker things. We had... More

Wife and I really didn't want a buffet but we think this place was recommended by people we met on the beach. The place do sent look like much and food not as varied as others not a gigantic selection . That being said the things we ate were fantastic. This is our first visit to the area. I have... More

While there's plenty to choose from at Bennett's Calabash Seafood, I can't recommend eating seafood there. There are lots of other items on the menu, and the king crab legs were good. If you want fresh seafood, go somewhere else.

Here we are at Myrtle Beach! You will find Calabash Seafood here and Calabash Seafood there! The only thing that changes is the name! You'll see Bennett's, Hook's, Captain Benjamin's, Benjamin's, Crab Daddy's, Mr. Crab, Crabby George's, Captain Crab and probably a hundred more Calabash seafood buffet's, just make sure you've got the right COUPON for the right seafood place!...

There are about two dozen so-called calabash seafood buffets around the beach, the prices seem about equal and they all claim between 100 and 200 items. I hope they are better than this one. The calabash items were few and far between, the beef section was pitiful and the desserts were so bad even the grandkids had no interest.

Nothing really special about this place its a buffet, the chicken was dry and the steak had no flavor what so ever. The salad was good but the lettuce was empty every time I went up. The mac and cheese had no flavor. Everyone I was with got the crab legs and said they was good. Typical buffet

Great rolls and the kids love the Mac &Cheese. All the vegetables are seasoned good. No waiting on Crab Legs, PLENTY. Lots of everything. You can order off the menu.
