The food is poor quality. The thought of "all you can eat seafood" sounds good however it's not worth the price or quality. The oysters smelled terrible, similar to rotting fish and sewage. Not worth your money. I will never eat here again.

After eating at the Giant Crab for years the family has finally decided to never go back. While the food looks good and there are lots of choices; it is horrible. For $160.00 for a family of four I would rather eat at a place with high quality food that doesn't make everyone feel sick after eating.

This is my favorite buffet in South Carolina. We have been here twice. The price is reasonable and a bonus get the coupon in the Myrtle Beach magazine. Get there by 2:30pm and receive $5.00 off each adult meal. Ask for Tonia to be your server she is simply amazing. When we arrived they took a picture of the whole... More

This was a great experience. It was a bit pricey $31.95 per person. But the service and selection were outstanding. There was something for everyone: pasta bar, hibachi, dessert bar, and tons of sea food.

If you can't find food you like at this buffet, then you are just too picky. Great options for the whole family, including fresh crab legs, hibachi, salad Barnard plenty more. Make sure you arrive hungry.
