The first time i ate at Crabby Mike's a few years back i was so impressed with the taste of the food. This time I was really disappointed. Truly was average tasting and not worth the money. Was a shame as i couldnt wait to go there!

This place was so good! The wait was short, the food was delicious and the staff were all so great. We will be back every time we visit Myrtle Beach

We enjoyed our dining at Crabby Mike's buffet. We make it a point to eat at least one night with each visit to Myrtle Beach. The crab legs are endless and lots of non-seafood items for those who don't do seafood. The place is always clean, the wait staff is very friendly and attentive. Just a fun, enjoyable dining experience... More

A little pricy but for unlimited seafood as well as land food it is worth it. Long wait during peak hours however it is worth the wait. He drinks are reasonably priced with an acceptable variety.

We were in Myrtle Beach for a weekend getaway. We knew that we wanted a seafood buffet, but with one on every other corner, we asked at the hotel lobby for a recommendation. They steered us here and we were very pleased. The food was appealing and good and the place was clean. Our service was just fine and everyone... More

The crab legs are awesome and the prime rib is ok....however we mainly go for crab legs! We where stoked about saving the best for last until we received the worst service we have ever... More

Ate there with my wife. Food was plentiful and tasted fairly good. Crab legs were plentiful, hot, and tasty. Price was freakishly crazy for what you get, but I guess lots of people, including dummies like me, pay it. If you want high priced yet tast seafood, this is your place.

Hi Cosmic Vagabond, I am glad you thought the food was good and plentiful. I am sorry you feel the price is too expensive. Our prices are in line with all the other seafood buffets in the area. We are not the most expensive and we are not the least expensive. We could put out inferior product and lower the... More
