I've tried out around 10 different seafood buffets at Myrtle Beach (with a focus on ones that offer crab legs on the buffet), and I can definitely say that Benjamin's is the best. Yes, they are pricer than what I would normally pay, but they are only a few dollars more than the CHEAPEST buffet with crab legs, but MUCH better than any other place. In response to the negative reviews, try going at a different time - if you are waiting until 6:00 to go to a popular buffet restaurant, then yes, you will experience a long wait and tons of people.
The pros of Benjamin's are the endless crab legs that are hot and always ready to go, and the wide variety of other foods. Everything that I tried was fresh and hot, and there was nothing wrong with any of the foods that I tried (and I tried a LOT!). It has been a couple of years since I have been to Benjamin's since I have been trying to find the cheaper places, but man, is it worth the extra few dollars. After my experiences at other seafood buffets the past two years, I will be only going to Benjamin's in the future.
The only real issue that I noticed was that the desserts were not as fresh as the rest of the food, and the ice cream machine did not have any vanilla available.
All in all, this was by far the best seafood buffet that I've had in Myrtle Beach, and after trying several others, Benjamin's will be my ONLY seafood buffet in Myrtle Beach in the future.
