We go here yearly!

After driving 10+ hours, checking in to our rental, and grocery shopping, we don't ever feel like cooking.. So the first night of vacation we always go to Crabby Mike's! Good food, good service, enough choices even for people who don't like seafood and they replenish the crab legs often!

We go several times when we go down. Get a coupon out if the coupon books though. Plenty of salads, different kinds of veggies, desserts, different fish, prime rib, beef, chicken and their speciality crab legs. You do not pay more for crab legs. Different kind of drinks and a place for young and old alike. Friendly place to go!

You can tell it's great by the crowds both locals and tourists. Love the crab legs, but my hubby prefers the prime ribs and large buffet assortment. Never disappointed when we go there. Tip: go early during tourist season or wait a long while.

This is among the best seafood buffet's around. It's immaculate, particularly the restrooms as well as the exterior of the premises ... very inviting. The place is expansive, many places to sit, very attentive wait staff. Plus for an extra $15/pp you can get unlimited lobsters ... it was just a delicious dining experience and I am not fond of...

They have lots of seafood, but not lots of flavor. The crab legs were either cold or gone. The crawfish tasted like dirt.

My wife and I love seafood and was looking for a place in SC that had everything we were looking for. Crabby Mikes fit the bill. They are a bit pricey, but you definitely get your moneys worth on the buffet. Lots of options and everything tasted fresh. It was also a very cool looking building, both on the inside... More

We bought a condo several years ago in Myrtle beach, and make it a habit to eat here on every visit. The Legs are always fresh, well cooked and of substantial size. The remaining buffet choices are plentiful and fresh. No complaints whatsoever! Will be back soon, Thanks from Mike And Heather

Visited this location on a Saturday night (December 26) around 8 o'clock. It was full but our party of three was seated immediately. Right away the waitress arrived for our drink order, returning in a couple of minutes with drinks. She took our orders, helping as needed by answering questions. Two of us ordered fried grouper. The other ordered snow... More
