Over priced! The seafood (I love baked fish, etc.) was like any buffet. Seemed like if you didn't eat crab legs it wasn't for you. Too pricey for the food.

Stay Away!!! Poor quality seafood, worse than Ryan's or Golden Coral. People come to the coast, they want fresh seafood not the Gordon's Fisherman. I've had better fried fish at Captain D's or Long John's Silvers.

We ate at this Bennett's on 5/10/12. Went at 4:30 p.m. to get early-bird rate using a $4 off per person coupon in tourist booklet -- look for it. This was a terrific value. Bennett's has 100 items or so -- salad bar, raw bar, soup (great clam chowder), many entrees, but just an OK dessert bar (but who needs it after all that food!). There was an incredible variety of seafood -- fried flounder and tilapia, clam strips, calamari, the best scallops I have ever eaten, crab cakes, shrimp cooked several ways, including pasta...so many choices. Add to that 2 or 3 different types of steaks, thick & juicy chicken strips, fried chicken, baked potatoes, cheesy-garlic biscuits...WISH I WERE THERE NOW! The sweet tea is just right. Service is prompt and with a ready smile. We plan to return on our next trip in September. Thank you, Bennett's!

This was this worst food and service and experience ever!!!! The Manager, "Nick" was rude and nonaplogetic. He was very disrespectful and argumentative. The food was cold and rubbery. the lettuce was brown etc. The worst restaurant ever!!!!! Expensive and disgusting! Not worth the money!

This restaurant is beyond horrible. We went there last night for dinner. The food is terrible, the service is the worst I have ever seen and the atmosphere and decor is ugly and run down. The waitress was rude and lied to us when we asked her to explain the bill calculations. The have an interesting way of adding up the bill and taking on all kinds of extra charges!! Go to Captain George's instead. Way better !! This place is terrible. Don't go.

BE AWARE THEY CHARGE YOU AN EXTRA $4.00 FOR EACH DINNER THAT YOU TAKE THE KING CRAB FOR!! We were told 24.99 for the bar.... Crab is on the bar too. We were not told of this "Extra Charge" when we were seated at the table either, but was told of it on the menu, that we did not look at. This is about slimy as it comes, and shows that the owners of this place are just taking the tourists for a ride. I was going to raise a real stink over this, but then decided to let everyone know of this here on line. Most of the seafood on this bar too, is of the frozen type, none or little of it is fresh. So, beware of this too. The waitress was excellent. I did leave her a nice tip. When we were leaving, a gal there wanted to know if we were inclined to look at local properties under the "Bennett"

First and last visit to Calabash. We had the buffet and the Prime Rib and T-Bone Steaks were absolutely horrible. Overcooked and swimming in liquid on the steam table. My wife did feel the Crab Legs were good but everything else was of poor quality. The cost was over 25.00 each. Would never return and certainly would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

my wife and i came to this restaurant in august. i will be as honest as i can be about our experience. i am the executive chef of the chestnut tree restaurant in cherokee n.c., and all i can say is u need to hire me if you want to change your reviews. the food variety was plentiful but the food was poorly prepared and poorly presented. the owner of this establishment should come to cherokee on a friday night, and see my seafood buffet. i am very proud of the reviews that i have and think that i could turn this place into an award winning buffet as i did the one in cherokee. the atmosphe at bennets is perfect, you just need a chef that knows how to teach a team to cook seafood. everything we had was sevierly overcooked. i would love the opportunity to help this place be the best buffet in myrtle beach. my wife and i are coming back to myrtle on the 12th of sept. we will try u guys one more time hopefully you will be better.

OK so when we went in there's an employee sitting on the bench saying welcome. first the waitress wants to sit us in an already crowded section with no room to move(considering were at a buffet and will be getting up and down to eat) so were seated on the other side, fine. then were greeted by our server get up to go the food you smell this stinch from the waitress section, then get over to the food and it looks old, try to pick what look decent. sit down to eat and some of the food has a spoiled smell or it was hard because it was fried and had been sitting for a while. so in all i had a bad experience paid my money and know for sure will not go back will to take a 6mile trip north to the giant crab..same price way better service and food

Love the all you can eat buffets and this one was good when i went last summer. Crab Legs were great as was the prime rib. Was a little expensive (even though we hit the early bird special) but its to be expected. Service was great and i'd go again.

I went here with my family back in Aug 09, Horrible service and the price of food was well not worth it. Our sever was the rudest person I have ever met and the management is rude as well. My 9 year old put his food on a plate and had gotten crab legs. When we sat down he wasn't hungry anymore he didn't touch his food so I asked it we could box it up and take it home or take it off the bill and she said no you will have to pay the full amount of 14 dollars and he cannot take it to go. After arguing with her she finally asked management and they agreed with him taking it to go but point blank she should have never argued with me and should have gotten management right away. Also to make it even worse I wasn't sure of the name or location and we are having a beach wedding and looking for restaurants so I called this location and they were so rude when I was trying to figure out buffett prices the man was foreign and I could barely understand him and he got rude with me I asked what are the children price buffett I said there ages varie from 2-10 he said I need a age hello I just gave you the ages all I can say they need to get some better customer service in there

Let me tell you of the horror we experienced at this place. As we got in the restaurant, the host pointed us to a table. We asked if we could be seated at another table which was empty and should have not been a problem. Oh what a mistake, it totally pissed her off for some reason or another. It was on from that point. As she took us to the table we requested she throw the napkins on the table. That got us started and we asked for the manager. He came to the table and it was totally clear that it was her husband or son. He just played it off, and said it didn't matter where we sat. They had long conversations on and off about us. We were totally amazed about the way they acted. There was a bright side to this horrible show performed by the both of them. The food was really good and our waitress was a charm. She tried to make up for their actions. This could not be done, but we truly admired her. We noticed that the manager seemed to be fussing at her at one point. I am sure he was upset because of her service to us. We really appreciated her service it was great. We will never go to this place again, when in Myrtle Beach. My brother inlaw told us we should have gone to the orginial bennetts. We will try that one the next time, but never again will we go to bennett III.

This resturaunt was very OVERPIRCED!! The food was average. It would be smarter to spend the 100 dollars that my family and I spent, on a sandwhich at Mcdonalds. I could not understand the waitresses acccent. The ice cream machine was out of order which is UNACCEPTABLE. The other deserts looked bad and were not kid friendly. The flounder was very good. The outside of the resturaunt smelled very horrid. I do not recommend this resturaunt to anyone. I would rather have been at Applebees. BTW I'm a 13 year old boy who just ate poop.
