Huge buffet; however, quality of food leaves a lot to be desired. She crab soup was at room temperature and tasted as if a box of salt had been emptied into the pot. Fried oysters were so bad I had to spit into a napkin,...More

The best seafood buffet in Myrtle Beach. The service and food are the best for the price. My favorite is the crab legs. Any seafood you want you will find on this buffet. can't wait to go to Myrtle Beach again for Captain George.
