Just average crab legs, everything else on the buffet was hardly edible. The service was awesome though and thats why it has an average review.

Never seen BOGO but we got a discount based on the time we went. Buffet was okay... can't say I'd go back. The crab legs were super salty too.

At the award-winning Giant Crab Seafood Restaurant, quantity takes a back seat to quality. We offer the freshest, best-tasting seafood buffet in town. From the minute you see The Giant Crab, you know it’s not just another all-you-can-eat seafood buffet. Sure, it specializes in serving seafood, but it does so in such tremendous, really, “giant” fashion with an emphasis on freshness. A steadfast and diligent crew keeps the buffet well-stocked and, you guessed it, fresh.
