Visited here on Nov 28th with my parents who were in town visiting. My mom had a coupon. I'd heard stories from other locals, but thought I'd try it anyway. The hostess was one of the rudest people I've ever met. They sat us in the farthest corner of the restaurant. Our food was ICE COLD (so the food may... More

We ate here on thanksgiving. It was $20 for adults and $13 for an eight year old. They had the standard turkey and dressing but also had countless items on the buffet. There was also a hibachi grill and carving station. The food was good and the service was too.

Be ready to eat when you visit. We spent Thanksgiving there considering we love fish. Everything you would want to eat. We will surely be back. Staff friendly and helpful.

We have been here many times but this was a different story. Choices of Seafood was greatly reduced to allow more non seafood fare. Selections of grilled or baked seafood was almost non existent. Crab Legs were not up to par with other seafood buffets. Service was still very friendly.

The food and service are exceptional! We had such a good time sampling all the delicious seafood. There were also many options for my non seafood eating boyfriend. He loved the prime rib the most. Friendly staff and live music made the perfect evening.

I love seafood, so we have tried several of the seafood buffets in Myrtle. This one is NOT one of my favorites. What they referred to as "Oysters Rockefeller" was a disgrace! I believe they use canned oysters. They were gross! Also, what they charge for adults wouldn't seem so bad when you consider that Myrtle IS a tourist trap.... More

My boyfriend and I dined here only because we had a BOGO coupon. We were seated immediately after being given a tour of the dining room by the host. We noticed a musty, old smell- that mixed with the smell of seafood was not pleasant. There weren't many options on the buffet at all - not even close to 170... More

My sister and I decided to try this restaurant (we usually eat at Joe's Crab Shack when we visit Myrtle - it's our favorite restaurant!) - but we thought we'd try something new and I'm sorry that we did. First of all - and yes, I know it's a buffet - but I think - no I KNOW - that... More
