All you can eat and then some. The buffet is plentiful with a lot of seafood and non seafood. The food is hot and fresh and delicious. The staff is extremely friendly and always helping clean the table and keep the drinks full and the trash plates empty


If you have never eaten at crabby mike's, you have no idea what you are missing out on. My family has been eating at crabby mikes for 20 years and it is by far, the best place at the beach, heck, in SC, to eat crab legs. With their huge buffet, they have something for everyone. Excellent quality of food and the staff is always amazing. Well managed.


Best seafood in the Myrtle Beach area. We live a couple of hours away but make day trips often just to eat there.


Took my husband here for the seafood buffet for his birthday. Buffet did not disappoint. Also the fact the two of us are allergic to shellfish, the buffet had many choices for us. Only think not good was the sirloin steak. Otherwise it was a great experience.


I come to MB in Sept. for an annual convention and Crabby Mike's is the first restaurant I visit. Year after year the crab legs and sea scallops have been outstanding and the other items on the buffet are very good. This year the crab legs were much small and were being doled out three clusters at a time. They were also harder to crack. There were NO scallops on the buffet. A worker explained they were having a problem sourcing the scallops but did not have a good answer about why the crab legs were much smaller. The fried oysters were mostly breading and were over-fried. My companion ordered the scallops off the menu as it was her first time a Crabby Mike.s and I told her how good the scallops. When her plate arrived we just stared at what was on it. Instead of nice big sea scallops, we were looking at sort of flat round fried objects. When cut into they seemed to be bits of scallops pressed together. The texture of a nice juicy sea scallop was just not there. IF we go back, I'm going to ask to see the buffet before deciding to dine there. It cost too much money to be served mediocre food.


My family makes a point to eat at a seafood buffet for our last night of vacation every year. This was our second time choosing Crabby Mikes and it was better than we remembered. Great food, great service, and great management. Shoutout to our server Erin who was very attentive and friendly. This may be our permanent buffet destination.

Great place will definitely go back. Highly highly highly recommend.


We were celebrating our 22nd year anniversary the second week in August. Our very first night, we had Michael as our waiter. We could not have asked for a better waiter! He was fast and very courteous! He kept the drinks coming and the table clean. The crab legs were BIG and delicious!! The second time we came, the same week, Dominick was our waiter. We had excellent service from him as well ! We look forward to coming here next time on our vacation.

This is by far the best seafood buffet in the area. Better of the fact it’s one of the best buffets I’ve ever been to. I get there early because this is the place to go. Because of the long line to get in it is about a 45 minute wait. The good thing is it is so busy that all of food is really fresh and they never run out of anything. I can’t believe with us busy as it is but they never ran out of anything all super fresh. Will be going back there the next time we come to Myrtle Beach. Wish I would’ve known about it sooner. The service is excellent

There is a decent amount of items on the buffet, but obviously if you are not a fan of crab legs it isn't worth the money. Most of the food on the buffet was marginal like all of the other buffets I have been to. I didn't notice any kids menu either, so may not be good for kids that won't eat much either. Cost was currently $48.99/person. Full bar, 30 minute wait for a table for four.

great service, a lot of choices, both seafood and non seafood items


A delicious feast for our whole family. Delicious feast of crab, crispy perfect butterfly shrimp and loads of other goodies too. Courtney A was extremely attentive to our large family gathering. And we all had fun with the parking lot dance party. The great reviews lead us to a highlight of our trip to the Myrtle Beach area.


Great Service, fantastic Seafood. We are locals and this restaurant is our very favorite. Can't go wrong eating with Crabby Mike's Been eating there for 25 + years and it just keeps getting better !!! Tom & Nancy


We were visiting and asked the locals in MB what the best seafood buffet was in the area and they advised here! We arrived at open 330 pm and there was a large line of people. My normal thought pattern to leave kicked in but my family calmed me and we waited. The doors opened and the best system I’ve ever seen kicked in! A plenitude of servers took to the many tables. We were seated and on our way through the buffet in minutes. The food was plentiful and delicious! I am a crab leg fan and I found them readily available , hot, delicious and large for the area. The mashed potatoes and coleslaw and everything else was really good as well! We had 3 kids under six who enjoyed the chicken tenders, pizza and fries! Everyone had some steak as well and there was no complaints on anything!! We will always go back here for our crab legs and buffet!! The owner is hands on and you can tell! Everything is right!!
