We love this restaurant. We talk about just driving to eat at Original Benjamins. We make plans to visit multi. times while we are at the beach. Great food. The one's that have bad comments must not like seafood that much. Just order PIZZA we do for the ones that don't like seafood. GOD Bless se ya soon.YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS LOVE from West Virginia

Over an hour long wait at Crabby Mikes, so we went looking elswhere. Look..not many cars here! Now I know why! 118.00 bucks for 2 adults and 4 kids. Food was below average, very disappointed in the variety! Service was friendly. If you are looking for fine quality seafood, this is not the place for you. If you are hungry and ready to eat the soul of your shoe, give it a try.

The food was horrible. The crab legs were so soggy your couldn't crack them. The only edible part was the salad bar. At $25.00/ person, we should have went elsewhere!!!

My family and I went there last spring.It was about 20 of us and everything was great.Excellant prices,food was nice and hot,service was great. I have been to the other Benjamins in North Myrtle Bch and I like this one better because its smaller and not such a big crowd. We are planning another trip back within the next month. I would recommend this place to all.

This was NOT worth the drive, money, etc. The floor was sticky, we ate King Crabs only because other food LOOKED terrible, was cool to cold what we did try, tasted bland....waitress was very nice. To be honest with Christmas music playing, gingerbread houses out-it was like eating and being stuck in a very bad Christmas movie. WILL NOT GO BACK!

I don't care what anybody says about this restaurant. I absolutely love this place and I always crave this place and as soon as I stroll into South Carolina every year that is the first place I go! The food is out of this world and the staff is incredible. I have never found a restaurant that I more more satisfied with! The crab legs are cooked perfect and always steaming hot! Some places just can't get the crab legs right but not this place. They have it mastered!!!!!!

This was my first time at this restaurant and I will never return. We witnessed the manager (a man with a long grey ponytail) making racist comments to a black family and to his staff after the family was chased off by him. We also witnessed him calling his servers lazy and a couple four letter words. All of this in the dining area in front of patrons eating dinner. The food was pretty bad, dry, overcooked crab, mushy and tasteless shrimp, inedible fried seafood. I emailed the restaurant with my concerns about the horrific racist comments but never heard back. I am not sure if they haven't had time to respond or support the manager's actions, either way, they will never see another cent from me or anyone I know. It's appalling they are still in business.

I don't know how you would not LOVE this place. This is the first meal other then breakfast that my family and I order every year we visit Myrtle Beach. We make sure to leave room in our schedule to visit more than once. The buffet is magnificent. The crab legs are the best in the area. I highly encourage anyone on vacation or local to give a visit to Original Benjamins Calabash!!!!

I have been going to Myrtle Beach on Vacation now for ten years and this is the best seafood buffet I have ever been too! So many selections in such a great setting. It's the first place I go too when we get into SC. I live in NY, and we don't have anything close that compares to Benjamins...

If looking for a good Seafood Resturant this is not the place to go to. I highly recommend going somewhere else! While on vacation I went there for my first and last time to eat.....the food was terrible. Most the food looked and tasted like it had been sitting out for hours and was cold. I didn't enjoy the food there at all.

I have eaten in the place several times and everything has always been excellent until August 9. They did not have shell shrimp, the crab legs didn't look very good that night, the ice cream maker was broken. I was very disappointed. I think everyone should have been given a discount since they did not get the normal food or service. I went there for the shrimp and my friends went for the crab legs. Service was poor that night also. We had to ask for refills on drinks. I don't think my friends will be returning to your place because of this.

we have traveled to this seafood gala for over four years now. The food is excellent. We loved the quality of the preparation of the food. The atmosphere is always pleasant with very good servers. The price is wonderful. Most of the time,we get a discount by getting there for a special. I wish that we could receive a better discount because most of the time, we bring eight people or more with us to dine.
