This was our second visit to Myrtle and our first to the Giant Crab. We actually drove by it last year and kept on going, based on the outdoor decor, we assumed it would be a kitschy tourist trap. Is it kitschy? Absolutely. Was it worth the money? Yes. After reading reviews and doing some research we settled on the... More

We have vacationed in Myrtle Beach for several years but tried for the first time this year. This buffet is really something. The food is very fresh and is not the same overcooked cold offering like a lot of buffets. The choices went all the way from what kids like (pizza, chips, etc) to New York Strip Steak and prime...

The selection is great. They have plenty of options for everyone. The hostess didn't do a great job of explaining how things worked. We figured out the pasta bar too late in the experience to leverage it. The taste of the food was mediocre. The place smelled terrible in our dining room, but I think it was the guests. I... More

Had been to Myrtle Beach a few years ago and had a buffet that had crawfish and wanted to pig out again. Asked at the Hostess stand and she said they would prepare for me. I spoke to the Head Chef and said they usually just put them out on the weekend but would prepare for me. Said I would... More

Although the price fluctuates with the seafood market, we have never had a bad meal! Always a huge selection of both sea food and regular food.. Always a hit. A must visit for anyone traveling around Myrtle Beach

Lots of variety. Decent taste considering this is a buffet. The crab legs were excellent and plentiful but I could not say that for the other dishes. Took a while for the other trays to be filled. Great service and ambience.

Please don't ever eat here, terrible presentation, dried out, old fish. The king crab is destroyed, over cooked, old. We tried to go to the buffet for old comfort food only to our dismay the good ole mac n cheese looked like it had been left out to dry then turned over to make you think it was new. Poor... More
