Great crab legs and our waitress Denise was extremely good and on top of her game. She kept the refills coming.

This restaurant is right around the corner from our home and my wife wanted to try it. We both decided on the senior menu since the buffet was $27.95 or $35.95 with crab legs. I was sorely disappointed with my prime rib. It was so tough that I couldn't swallow any of the bites.

We traveled to North Myrtle Beach (Cherry Grove Beach) for our recent vacation and looked over many, many restaurants for our night out. Since we were a large group (10 adults and 3 kids), we decided a buffet would probably be best. After reviewing TripAdvisor, we decided to give Preston's a try. It was a wise decision! We arrived around... More

Jane M, Manager at Preston's Family Seafood Restaurant, responded to this review

While we are glad to hear you were given great service by Ken, we are disappointed you did not enjoy the food and felt the price was too high. We are the only seafood buffet in our area that offers the lowest prices, with or without crab legs, and we choose not to over-season the food, as some of our... More

We stopped in for dinner after taking a boat trip in the afternoon. The hostess was very friendly, explaining the price depended on with or without the all you can eat crab legs. We chose with.

Preston's is what you want. The crab legs were amazing and the items on the hot bar was flavored just right. Jamie made sure we had everything we needed when we needed it and even offered to go get me dessert so I wouldn't have to get up and get it myself. The food really was delicious and every time...

All the food was good, but the Crab legs were the best! They have a hot and cold bar, but the waitress brings crablegs without judgement. I do love me some Crab Legs! Our waitress Denise was wonderful.

Preston's grand buffet offers succulent meats and seafood, along with deliciously seasoned vegetables, fresh baked breads and pastries, and oh so much more!Seafood lovers will delight in the variety they find here. The selection is awesome! Besides wonderful shrimp, fish and oysters, Preston's offers scallops, deviled crab, steamed mussels, craw fish and shrimp, salmon, seafood casserole, a seafood medley and more! You can choose to have all you can eat crab legs, which are cooked to order and brought to the table hot with warm butter. If meat is what you crave, Preston's offers prime rib, BBQ ribs, several chicken dishes as well as pork. Pasta lovers aren't left out either!The folks in the kitchen at Preston's do a great job with the buffet's homemade recipes of vegetables and side dishes. Tasty as they are, you'll think Grandma spent all day simmering them on the stove.The salad bar alone is worth the trip! There's 15 feet of colorful, crisp fruit and vegetables with a variety of creamy dressings as well as shrimp and seafood salad, cold boiled shrimp, pasta salad, potato salad, coleslaw and others.The ideal accompaniment to any meal is the melt-in-your-mouth yeast rolls from the in-house bakery. And save room for dessert! Preston's bakers whip up a delightful assortment of fruit cobblers, cookies, cakes and even yummy toppings with ice cream!Preston's a great place to take kids. The kid's bar includes cheeseburgers, french fries, chicken tenders, corn dogs, pizza and nachos with cheese. Not only will they find plenty of things they like, children under 3 eat free!Guests who opt to pass up the buffet will find plenty to like on Preston's full menu including chicken, seafood and steaks.A full bar featuring cocktails and a variety of beers is available. While outstanding food is enough to set Preston's apart from most restaurants, you'll also love the attentive service. Jane McMichael and her friendly staff have a loyal following of guests who come back each year. It's no wonder Preston's has been one of Myrtle Beach's most popular restaurants for 25 years.
