From the moment you walk in the front door you're treated special. All of the staff is wonderful and hard working. The decor of the place is funky and fun. If you love a good buffet then this is the place for you. The crab legs are fantastic as well as the rest of the seafood, the soups, the prime... More

Great fresh seafood - crab legs, salmon, scallops, lots of kid friendly choices like corn dogs, mac and cheese, pizza and soft pretzels and a very fresh, crisp salad bar. The dessert bar was pretty good too. Our waiter, Jonathan was absolute great. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars was because it did sometimes take... More

I would just like to say that my Hostess Anna was the best hostess i have ever had in any restaurant. She was by far the friendliest one ever. Very polite and a delightful person to talk with. Her information she gave us about surfside beach we asked about was the best. Second to none.

We had the seafood buffet and it was very good. The only thing is no old bay on any crab cakes or crab legs. The service was excellent and the desserts were wonderful

Great food and great service as always. We visit every time come to myrtle beach at least once a year. Have never had any issues. Wait sometimes long but worth it for food.

We visited this buffet tonight, after reading reviews and recommendations from a friend. It's $30.99 a person, not counting the drink. We arrived early, before the crowd really got started but we were still seated way in the back, up some steps. I didn't complain but there were two other parties that arrived after us that complained about the seating... More
