Our waitress cleared our plates as fast as we could empty them and had plenty to drink....great job Michelle! W!e had one in our party that doesn't eat seafood and he said that there... More

If you make the mistake of going here, get your monies worth by having the steam crab legs, shrimp (steamed and fried) and broccoli. Stay away from everything else because it's horrible.

They did offer a very large variety of food they served steamed clams, muscles, and oysters that were not open along with the open ones. So once you get back to your table you find out that 50%...

So glad that we had been given 2 free dinner gift cards because this meal was certainly not worth the $33 price per person. Yes, there was a great variety of food and some of it was very mediocre. As a person who loves steamed crabs with melted butter, I was really disappointed that when I asked for melted butter,... More

This was one of the two buffets we tried while in Myrtle Beach and it was okay. The crab legs were greasy, so not sure what made them that way. My wife liked the she crab soup and the baklava on the dessert bar.
