My husband liked his crab legs. The kids and I are on the buffet. We did not care for it. Either it was to salty or not salted at all. Could not taste any difference between the coconut shrimp and the normal breaded shrimp. I tried the made to order and my veggies were ok after I stayed away from... More

This buffet has a huge selection! Unlimited crab legs. The food is very mediocre. The dessert bar has a huge selection as well with VERY yummy choices. My teenaged kids loved it I'm sure for the huge selection,

We went there for dinner. Even though it is a buffet restaurant the food was delicious. The staff is friendly. The prices really good for all you can eat seafood. There is a vast dessert bar. I liked the stuffed mushrooms and stuffed shrimp.

We eat here every year when we come to Myrtle Beach. They have the best buffet with soooo many options. My husband doesn't like seafood and he even finds plenty to eat here because there are so many choices.

We had a $3 off coupon for the Giant Crab Seafood Buffet so we tried their dinner on a weeknight. If you get the Monster Coupon Book you will find the coupon on page 81. Regular price is $29.99 per adult and half price for kids. The interior decor is dated, their plates and utensils are scratched and worn. There... More

Crab legs Cajun style were great. Regular crab legs delicious and hot. Prime rib rare, just like we like it. Steak had a little much smoke taste, but was still good. Will return when we come back. Service was great.

There were a lot of choices to choose from, but food was not hot and everything tasted the same. Service was good.

The four of us had dinner and overall were pleased with the food and service. There were tons of items on the buffet, every kind of seafood you could imagine, some better than others. The crab legs were my favorite, crab cakes and boiled shrimp were good too. Service was good but not exceptional. Price was good since we had... More

My boyfriend and I went for his birthday, and while we both left full, we would not come back again without a coupon (we had a bogo.) I found most seafood items to not be hot at all. I am not sure how they are passing inspections with these temperatures, but I did find the non seafood items to be... More
