The food was average, the cost of the meal was a joke. We ordered frozen margaritas, it was a bait and switch of sorts, they charged us 4.50 for the drink and 4.50 for the tequila and we never detected the presence of alcohol! The restraunt is a JOKE.

I am very unhappy with my visit to this restaurant on 4/15/17. The food was very poor quality, expensive, and the service was terrible. The 4 people in our party were squeezed onto a narrow porch at a table with only 3/4 of the table free for seating. When we went to the buffet and came back a server had taken one of the chaors from our table and gave it to another table. For $33 a head, the food was very disappointing quality. At one point in the meal, our server came to clear away the basket for crab shells. She dumped the whole basket including the claw crackers onto dirty dishes from another table and then picked them up and put them back on our table to use. The table was dirty causing my daughter to get somethin (butter I hope) all over her legs from under the table. My family spent 130 dollars at this eatablishment, and it was one of the absolute WORST dining experiences I ever had. I feel robbed! Do not expect our return, but you can expect that I will share my review so that others don't end up with the same horrible experience we had.

Its not seafood restaurant,its a western food restaurant.About the price for this food...you can go to the Golden Corral to get better western food for less (half price).I recommend to check first the price and inside and food at any restaurant. The bossman it was bad with the employee at front me every minute,that made me feel bad.Asked me if I wanted the bill,when I was enjoying the food.Bad service from the waitress,will be for the mistreatment and abuse of the bossman?. Two year ago we ate at Seafare seafood restaurant,this time it was everything good,I don't know today.Today my wife wanted to try this restaurant,I not come back!

A friend and I were staying in South MB and traveled up to North MB to eat at Giant Crab, which we had found in a brochure.This was Sept. 2012. When we entered, we overheard a waitress say that 2 people had gotten up and walked out because the price was too much. I wish that I had taken that clue and walked out as well. We had the buffet and water to drink. Our bill, with tip was over $50. (We also had coupons) The food that we chose was OK, nothing special. The service was also OK. In my opinion, there are no two people ever made which can eat $50 worth of food at one sitting, unless they are Sumu wrestlers, and then, maybe!!! So, $50 for 2 people to eat is just very exorbant. Especially for average food and average service. Well, "once burned,lesson learned." I ate ther once and that will be my first and last time of doing so. So, if you like paying out big bucks for nothing special, then that is the place you should go and eat.

Really good crab legs, she crab soup and crab cakes. I was glad to see so many broiled/baked options since most buffets seem to fry everything. A few disappointments: calamari had the texture of a thick rubber band, the salmon was over cooked, scallops were chewy. There was entertainment the night we went. It helped the atmosphere with soft jazz. The place was totally overrun by kids and bad parents not watching out for them. They should insist that kids under 12 be accompanied by an adult. Overall, I was greatly satisfied with the buffet. Most everything was delicious, fresh and hot. The waitstaff is very attentive and happy to serve you. I definately got my money's worth and left with a smile.

We were looking forward to eating at your restaurant! But the receptionist at the Caribbean Resort strongly advised us to go to another restaurant due to your poor food service. Just thought you might want to know. We will be eating at Giant Crab next year when we visit south carolina again.

This is the one place we make a point of visiting when we vacation in Myrtle Beach and the surrounding area. The food is fabulous, love the variety (especially the seafood!) and the atmosphere is fun for the whole family. There is truly something for everyone on their buffet! Love it!

My husband and I really enjoyed this restaurant. We really enjoyed the live band and the customer service. The only negative I have wiht this restaurant is the person standing at the door asking if we want a free picture for dinning there. This is a gag, the free picture is a passport size picture and they want you to buy the larger sized picture. I really think that is bad business, because for the amount of money you spend on the food, the picture of any size should be free...just saying. I personally think the restaurant to get a family member to take the pictures at no charge, this way the money can stay in the business and not to an outsider.

Absolutly Horrible!!!!! This is the worst buffet ever! $100.for 2 adults and 2 kids. The kids buffet food was a sin hot dogs and hamburger meat sitting in water. The "stuffed" stuff was just pure breading no flavor. The only thing that was ok was the crab legs

All these people are complaining about the price. If u can't afford to have good seafood then go to captain d's or long John silvers! My family has ate there numerous time and every family member or friend has loved it! All these people who said they didn't like it are freakin' crazy, but then they all talked about the price. Nothing is cheap in myrtle beach except these people that are complaining! Everything was great. They had the best selection of seafood, chicken, steak, prime rib and the hibachi grill was magnificent! I would never choose another buffet. Even the kids buffet had pizza, chicken and other stuff kids love. One year old shouldn't be eating seafood and stuff like that anyway!

By far the WORST place I have ever eaten at. The food was horrible and the prices were RIDICULOUS! The crab legs were over-cooked. Not worth the money at all. I have been to great restaurants where I have spent $97 on two people, so I know what good food is. The bill at Giant Crab was $70 for 2 and I wouldn't have spent more than $20 for 2. Avoid at all cost!
