We visited this place on a Friday night expecting it to be hopping like many of the other restaurants in Calabash. NOT! The place had maybe 4 tables seated. The female (owner?) quickly seated us and took our drink order. In the past the buffet...More

This is a buffet that has plenty of food items to choose from. My favorite was the shrimp which was cooked perfectly. They have fresh fruit including strawberries, blueberries, cherries, pineapple and watermelon, all good and cold. They have a salad bar as well as...More

This was not the Hibatchi restaurant. For being a seafood buffet restaurant it really sucked what. Everything on the buffet tasted like it was day old or even older. Out of 5 stars I wouldn't even give this a half a star.

Unfortunately, weather its the location or the competition in the immediate area, this place just misses the mark. This spot has housed no less that 8 different restaurants, and a consignment shop over the past 12 yrs. and no one has lasted more than 2...More

Back in May [2013] I noticed this place's going into business, pretty close to the corner, in Calabash. For the next six months, I'd see it, but no magic ray was drawing me in. I'd ride on by. November, last month, a wire-hire moved me...More

Stopped by Calabash for lunch on our way to Myrtle Beach. We wanted seafood and were not familiar with the area nor available restaurants and their locations. So we basically settled on the first one we saw and that was a mistake. Should of had...More
