If your family loves different types fresh seafood, this is a "must visit" while at Myrtle Beach. The atmosphere is causal, with live music, and lots of families. Although they were near packed, the wait time was minimal with great service once seated. The buffet offers many seafood items to include steamed crab legs, oysters, clams, mussels, calamari and shrimps... More

My younger granddaughter loves the Giant Crab and no trip to Myrtle Beach is complete without a dinner there. Well, those days are over. We went tonight and the food was awful, overcooked and poor quality. And I spent the whole meal looking at the spider nest that stretched the entire height of the corner of the wall. I asked...

This place is very expensive for what you get. Mostly fried seafood. No lobster or stone crab. Adult meals are over $30 person. If kids are over 12 yes old you will pay adult prices which is crazy. Thought it would much better seafood. I have had better seafood at home .

You will not be let down with the steak, crab legs, shrimp, and pasta bar. I was disappointed by the sides and desserts. Great customer service!

Our server Michelle was the highlight of our visit. She was hustling to give us all excellent attentive service. My sister in law and nephews raved about their prior visits to the Giant Crab, so all 9 of us went for the buffet. The buffet does have a wealth of options, with lots of seafood and fried foods. My highlight... More

I truly don't like to give bad reviews. But if you don't like seafood don't waste your money. The only reason why we went was my husband had been wanting to go all week. All the seafood you could imagine. The selection of non seafood was ok but not worth $32 for dinner.

This place always has the best food. The selection is huge! It is expensive but you are getting so much to chose from. You can sample a large variety of different sea foods. Staff are great and friendly. We eat there every time we are in town and they never disappoint.

The buffet was delicious! We had a small mix-up, but Sheila, the manager took care of us with a smile. Our server, (sorry, I forgot her name!), was very friendly & attentive. If you want seafood that's second to none, please try the Giant Crab! We'll be back next year!

We have been several times, usually make it one of our options each trip. The food is average, but there is always plenty of crab legs!! We like it because it typically gives everyone in the family options that appeal to each of them. They seem to do a great job keeping all the food options full on the buffet... More
