Enjoyed everything at this establishment, the food was great and so was the service. Great seafood, and lots to choose from, a little bit for everybody. Not really busy so got in quick

The food was all hot and fresh which can sometimes be an issue at a buffet. Very great selection of anything you may thing of. With that being said the food was very average especially for the cost. The buffet in my opinion was worth about $15-$17 per person. Our bill for 3 was a few bucks shy of $100.... More

My family and I have traveled to Myrtle Beach, SC several times. We try different restaurants. When we find a good one, we like to continue to patronize. We have had difficulty doing so. We have passed by several Calabash restaurants. A friend suggested that we try this one. We were so pleased. The food was fresh, the food temperatures... More

Wonderful food, price is steep. When you visit, make sure you are very hungry! There are a lot of options including a wonderful salad bar.

We are local and eat at Bennet's north location regularly. The food is good, as is the service. While the buffet is not as expansive as some in Myrtle Beach, the food is consistently good. Another plus for us is that it isn't so large that you have trouble finding your table or so crowded that you stand in line... More

Interior looked just like it did forty years ago. Seafood in abundance, however you wanted it prepare raw, broiled or fried. A nice selection of non seafood items also. Price was a little pricy but well worth it.

Huge buffet with many non seafood items. My vegetarian daughter raved about the fresh salad bar. Excellent popcorn shrimp and onion rings. Fried fish was a disappointment- some sort of salt and pepper seasoning. They used to serve excellent fried white fish.

Thank you for the kind review. As for the fried fish I will be looking into your comments to see what went wrong. We haven't changed any of our processes or products for our fried fish over the last few seasons, so there is no good reason for the change during your last visit. I'll be sure to get to... More

The restaurant has been reviewed here by the local paper, Sun News below average. Due to not storing the seafood properly. It is a buffet, not a good one, I like my seafood to taste great, I am willing to pay a little more for better food.

If you did not enjoy your meal I apologize and I appreciate any feedback you can give so we can improve but this is the second time in a week that you've made claims that we store our product inadequately and this is simply NOT TRUE. Again, we have never received anything under an A during many routine health inspections... More
