“Average due to price, Not Food !!!!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

The food was good but not worth the price!!!!! There was a very large assortment of seafood and all the trimmings. The staff was great. The resturant was clean and a pleasant decor!!!!!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We go here a few times a year and love it. Most recently we went by for Thanksgiving dinner and absolutely loved it. They have great food with a 170 item buffet, nice large model ships all over the restaurant, and big CRAB LEGS! I would recommend this restaurant if you are visiting restaurant row!

“Wow”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We always got to Original Benjamin's at least once a month as a treat and always go when visitor's come to the beach and what a meal from the Crab Legs to the desert you will never be so full when you leave...Food is always cooked just right and fresh no leftover stuff there....Salad Bar Pasta Station and always a selection to choose from ...Non-seafood eaters will find everything they want there as well.

“OMG SO GOOD!!!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

The food was nothing short of amazing. So many times you go to a seafood buffet and the fried items are soggy and gummy or dry and tasteless. Not here! Everything was fresh and tasty. The crab legs were also good and they kept them coming! Best part was how helpful they were with my seafood issues (I have an allergy to mollusks (clams, oysters, scallops) but not crustaceans (shrimp and crab)) I know eating at a place like this is kind of an "at your own risk" thing, but everyone was so helpful in pointing out what was safe and what to stay away from. I will definitely go back!

“An Experience”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

$30 per plate for the buffet, good seafood, theme park atmosphere. I have a small appetite and asked for the menu so I could look for a smaller portion selection. The menu provides entrees starting at $60, but indicates the serving size is for two. I ordered the "low country boil" to split with 2 others and the portion was HUGE, it could have served 6 easily! It came in a massive pot filled with shrimp, crab legs, mussels, clams, corn, red potatoes. We took half the pot home. So, you can eat there for less than a mortgage payment if you order off the menu and split it with several others.
