Wonderful variety and delicious crab legs. Worth the price! Atmosphere is phenomenal with variety of nautical replicas and antiques. Great place to take kids. Take time to walk around to the various dining rooms to look at all of the ship models.

I was here earlier in the year while on a golf trip. I was a little disappointed then with the scallops being little shreds. This time I visited with my family. I was happier with the scallops.. they were still pieces but the pieces were a little larger. (I still don't understand why they don't put whole scallops out.) They had everything stocked and ready to go even though they were extremely busy. Even though they are not as good as they use to be, I have not found a better seafood buffet in Myrtle Beach.

It is a good value for the money. We eat there every time we are in Myrtle Beach. If service had been better, I would have given it an excellent.

One thing about Myrtle Beach is the endless amounts of so called seafood buffets. This place stands above all of them. This place rocks! It is huge with lots of space for dining, a neat little gift shop, and a kids room and arcade. The décor is strictly related to the sea...plenty of boat salvage out front not to mention the pirate who gives out mardi gras beads to guests. Lots of neat boat décor and models inside. The 170 item buffet is really good with lots of variety...all you can eat crab legs and more. I honestly liked every item I chose from the buffet. The staff were friendly and quick and the wait wasn't very long either. I like how they use words from the sea faring life for the guests as their party names. Skip all the other buffets...you will only be let down....come to this one if you want the real deal!
