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!

We spent Spring break in MB. Our first shot at a seafood buffet at another restaurant left us less than impressed, so the next night we decided to give the Giant Crab a try. We were seated immediately after they made sure to get our coupon so that they could apply it. The hostess showed us where everything was on our way to our table, and our waitress was outstanding! On to the food: Everything was hot and fresh. We focused on the seafood, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I can not think of a bad thing to say - in fact, we chose to go back on our final night in MB. The place was packed - last night in town for lots of spring-breakers, yet we were seated immediately. Again all around great experience, great food and great service. This blows away the other seafood buffets in the area. I proudly wear my "She thinks my crabs are sexy" T-shirt.

JUST TERRIBLE!! My husband and I decided to spend our Labor Day 2010 weekend alone at Myrtle Beach. We usually visit Myrtle Beach once a year with our 2 children and we always go to the Original Benjamins, in this case I wish that we chose to do the same. As we decided to change things up this year we pulled into the parking lot of the GIANT CRAB, what a big MISTAKE! The food here was horrible, I ordered an icy acoholic beverage that was brought to me with a DEAD KNAT floating on the top of the drink..ewww... (and they had the nerve to ask did I want another one, UMM NO, I WILL DEFINITELY PASS) The food was cold, soggy, and greasy the utensils were dirty and there were knats over most of the seafood dishes. We basically wasted our money and our appetites were spoiled on our last night at the beach, this was a terrible experience for the both of us. The other bad part about this experience is that when you complained about the service to the "so called managment" they were not at all sympathetic and expected you to pay for food that you didn't even eat let alone swallow the drink with the dead knat floating around in it (I was looked at like I was the one who put it there and served it to myself, what in the ....) Never again would I ever step a foot into this place again, the GIANT CRAB on the building should fall backwards and crush the entire building (without anyone in it of course) so that they could start all over again, hopefully the next time the place would be appetite friendly and pleasantly appealing. FYI: By the way I have no association with any of the competing restaurants, what I wrote above is what we actually experienced at this restaurant as a vistor to Myrtle Beach, SC.
