“Great buffet!!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

This is the first buffet style restaurant that we have been to where the hot food was really hot. There was a vast array of food to suit every palate and everything seemed fresh. The only complaint I had was that the muscles had a rubbery texture to them. The waitress couldn't explain it other than perhaps they had been sitting there too long.everything else was delicious.

My wife had the crab legs which she liked.

A bit pricey but it was a very good meal!

“Awesome Seafood”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Whenever i make my annual summer trip to MB this place is always a MUST. All you can eat crab legs for $30.00 plus anything else on the buffett. They have anything you want on the buffett. Seafood and non sea food

“Yummy and FRESH Seafood!!!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

CRABLEGS and ALL the bar was FRESH! SO GOOD that we went back again during our weeks' vacation! The personality of the servers could be friendlier. The hostesses acted like they hated their job, and, that it was just so routine, they were "no personality people" - A real bummer for such good food:(

“Average Food”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

There's no doubt that there's plenty of selection - you won't leave hungry but it seems to be just an expensive ($30) buffet - similar to a Ryans or Golden Corral (with a few upgrades). The food is average at best but that's not unexpected. It seems to cater to tourists and can handle huge groups w/o issue.

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We went there mainly for the crab legs and all the other sea food they advertise as having on the buffet. Almost everything is deep fried and the crab legs were small in size and the shells were soft and kind of rubber like. They would not snap or crack when you tried to open them. Very disappointing. Not all of the food tasted bad, but the crab legs did not pass, and that is a big selling point to draw customers in. We paid over $88 dollars for 2 adults and 2 children. Will not go back to this place when in Myrtle Beach. Live and learn.
