We go to Myrtle Beach quite often. It's pretty common to visit a restaurant with poor service. This place was the second to worst I've experienced. I presented the coupon for our meal, and was asked if we would like lobster tails with our meal. We both said yes. After a few minutes the waiter returned and very rudely pointed... More

T his is buffet style an all you can eat. For this type the food is very good. Good selection of fish. They also have crab legs. Around $30. Also great service.

While in the past this has been a favorite stop it has gone down greatly from the service to the food. The server brought my bill before I was finished with my soup and salad. The seafood was ok but was not that fresh and I ate early in the evening about 5pm. I'm not going to trash them but... More

We're not huge buffet fans and we ate here our first day in Myrtle beach, without first education ourselves on Myrtle Beach's Many Many buffets. Advice from other travelers we met (afterwards): Pick up a cpn book (or 5!)(they're varied & everywhere!) as the buffets charge to make up for the coupon discounts. I'm not sure how this buffet compares... More

This buffet has a wide selection of items such as salad bar, raw, steamed and fried seafood, fried & cooked veggies, chicken and beef offerings, pasta, deserts, and other select entree items. The quality of the food ranges from fair to good, depending on the item and also the crowd numbers; if the crowd is large, then the food item... More

I'm glad the wife and I had a $5.00 off coupon, but that still didn't help. Our Bill with 2 sweet teas (Which didn't get re-filled) came to over $60.00 Most food was greasy. Crab legs didn't taste good. Don't know what you could do to mess up crab legs? Live and learn.

The amount of food available was amazing. That said, I always feel like I eat more than necessary just because I want to get my money's worth. I think I'll avoid buffets in the future. There was a lot of fried food but the crab legs were delicious. Our server brought out warm butter and replaced it as it cooled.... More

It was a mouth-watering, delicious variety of food not only seafood; but prime-rib, steak and lots of great desserts.

I ate at this restaurant on my first visit to Myrtle Beach in 1997. My husband and I were very disappointed and I never went back. Everything tasted like it was cooked in the same grease and you couldn't really tell what you were eating. Last night I decided to check the reviews again and gave them another chance. Everything...

Buffet was big but food was only so so. The crab legs had no flavor, the fresh oysters on half shell tasted fishy but the fried ones were okay.
