My wife and I everytime we go get great food, everything is cooked just right and they have something for everyone. We have not found anything on the buffet yet we did not like. Our waitress was Katelyn and she was spot on keeping the drinks coming and table clean did it all with a big smile.

We like to visit Crabby Mike's anytime we're in the Surfside Beach area. This visit did not disappoint. We arrived and were seated right away. My husband ordered the buffet and I ordered the seafood sampler off of the menu. We both were satisfied with the quality and quantity of the food. Our server Audra was excellent. One of the best servers that I've encountered. I was also impressed with the cleanliness of the restaurant. Kudos to Lyle!

From the friendly greeting at the door until we left, Crabby Mike's was awesome ! The food selection was great and the buffet area was constantly being attended to by the staff. Our server, Ashley, gave us excellent service, very warm and friendly ! We will definitely be going back for more the next time we are there ! I highly recommend this place as the best buffet in the area !

It was my first time here and I live here. After hearing such GREAT reviews, I decided to try it! My waitress was Lynette and very attentive and made our visit a pleasant experience. I was not as pleased with the food however. There is a great selection and the shrimp and oysters were good. I specifically go to seafood restaurants however for fried scallops and this was extremely disappointing to pay all that money for a meal I could not enjoy! The fried scallops are very small and heavily breaded. I do not believe they are scallops at all, but simply white fish as I become very ill when I eat white fish and last night was no exception. Very disappointed in meal. The restaurant itself is terrific, very organized and clean,and the staff is prompt and friendly. I was assured they had the best scallops and it must be these people have never had real scallops before in their lives. Just very disappointed!!!

We LOVED our meal! Our waitress was Brittany and she was so sweet and attentive. She explained that Calabash was NOT a chain, that it was a type of breading used on the food. After getting home and talking to others, it's clear that THIS Calabash Buffet (Surfside) is the best! Loved the crab legs. They were hot and we never had to wait for more. All the foods stations were clean and well stocked at all times. We will be back!

The buffet is great with a lot of variety. No end to the crab legs - they're terrific. My only problem is I brought 2 granddaughters. $30 for a 12 yr old and $15 for a 10 yr old. I doubt they ate $15 worth between them. I love it but still think it's a bit pricey. By the way, the staff is great.

My family and I never fail to make this a stop on our yearly beach visits. The food is as good as it gets and they have the best service of any restaurant I have ever eaten in. I see people mention the wait time here, but I've waited longer for food that wasn't even in Crabby Mike's caliber. I feel like the fact that people are willing to wait for the food here should speak for itself. There are a lot of other seafood buffets nearby with no wait times, yet people are willing to wait a bit to eat here. So what should that tell you? It's the best!

My family had the best experience of our twenty years of visiting Myrtle Beach. We decided to go to Crabby Mike's after passing it several times while we vacationed. Wow is all I can say. From the quality of the food to the best staff we have ever had the pleasure to interact with. Chandler was absolutely superb. All in all we have never ever had such a good experience while dinning out. It made the entire vacation more enjoyable and memorable. I asked to see the highest manger just so I could compliment in person, and low and behold we actually got to meet Mike. I can see why this restaurant is so successful, with leadership like Mike's and just the quality of associates he has chosen to represent the restaurant, it is a recipe for success. I will never pass up the chance to dine at Crabby Mike's on our future visits to Myrtle Beach. A+++ Mike and Staff.

The food was average it would've been a $20 meal not a 30 dollar meal. If you eat crab legs it may be okay. But out of six of us only one eat crab leg. So the owners benefits from the extra expense. Out the meal.

We were forewarned that there would be a wait at crabby mikes but were pleasantly surprised when we walked in and were seated immediately. The restaurant definitely had a great look to it and my boys right away commented that it was the best looking buffet we had ever been in. Our server was quick but had an oddness to her that I just couldn't put my finger on. And then we went up to the buffet and were just a little disappointed. While all three of us tried different foods-the crab legs and Mac n cheese were all that was really worth it. I was shocked that so many people had raved about this buffet. We did get our fill and definitely did not leave hungry but I couldn't help but think if this was the best buffet in myrtle beach thank goodness we didn't try any others! In the future we will just stick to the seafood restaurants and skip the buffet.

If you want crablegs in the MB area this is the place to go. I have been going to buffets in the MB area for over 15 years and have eaten at every buffet on the grandstrand. I really mean every one.Crabby Mike's is by far the BEST CRABLEGS ON THE GRANDSTRAND. Never cold or "rubbery". If you want all you can eat crablegs this is the only place to go!!!

There are many all you can eat seafood buffets in the area and many are ok. Crabby mikes which was voted number 1 and recommended by family is number 1. I was in management and restaurant ownership for 13 years and can tell you that crabby mikes got it right. The food quality and taste the service received everything from top to bottom was more than expected. What truly makes this an exceptional place is that even when the restaurant was extremely busy the staff is so well trained and management executes so well the buffet was fully stocked and the server was on point these are things you expect a restaurant is not over capacity on a 30 minute wait on a sunday night which is normal for myrtle beach. What im saying in a nutshell is if you want an all u can eat buffet and youre scared to choose this is the place to go. The king crab legs were plentiful and tasted outstanding..

We are locals and visit Crabby Mike's several times a year. We even go in the summer months and because we are local and can show a local ID, we do not have to wait very long. We always enjoy the food. My husband goes for crab legs and I eat a combination of everything. The ribs are especially good. The sauce is spicy but just the right flavor and very tender. I also like the catfish, shrimp, and don't forget the good desserts. The wait people are always very helpful and attentive. If you have not tried Crabby Mike's please do and I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Crabby Mikes.. where do I begin? At first I really didn't want to eat there. I don't like seafood as much as my father and brother. Though when I went in the scenery was REALLY impressive, I spent a good chunk of time looking around at everything between food. Their food was more than I could imagine, they had beyond seafood (pizza, chicken, ribs, etc.) which really made me satisfied. When I was there it was pretty noisy, but quiet enough where I could hear who I was with. It maybe does cost alot, but if your looking for an excellent dinner out, I would totally recommend you eat at crabby mikes.

We were vacationing from Nebraska and was hoping to find a good seafood place. We just happened to come across Crabby Mikes after reading some reviews. Expecting to wait a long time, being summer, we were so surprised to be seated after 2 minutes. they told us the wait would be 45-60 minutes. We were amazed at the many varieties of food and the varios types of seafood we had never tried before such as Flounder, deviled crab, crawfish, and froglegs. The food was very good. We liked the crablegs best. Our server was fabulous, immediately removing dirty plates, refilling our water and answering our many questions. He was very pleasant. The atmosphere/decor was very fun, lively and cheerful. We would definitely recommend it.

I have been here twice in the past month. Each time there was a ton of people outside waiting to get in. Each time I expected a long wait only to find I was seated with in 20 to 30 minutes. While you are waiting outside, there is a DJ playing music and hoola hoops for the kids to play with to the beat of the music. So the time goes by rather quickly. Once inside, the restaurant is clean, staff are friendly, and the food is never empty. They NEVER ran out of crab legs and the Prime Rib was cooked to perfection. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone (and I have).

My husband went only for the crablegs...and he was able to finish several plates and was very satisfied! I on the other hand was able to nibble at the expanse of the other 119 items. Many items made in house. Everything from the soup, salad until dessert, I enjoyed everything! Don't let the price scare you away...quality is everything!

My daughter-in-law took me on an all expense vacation in July of 2011. We wanted a good seafood dinner one night, so we chose Crabby Mikes Calabash Buffet. I am still wondering where they got the recipe for the hush puppies. They were the best I have ever tasted. Everything I ate was great.

My family has eaten at Crabby Mikes for years. Always enjoyed it...until this past Thanksgiving. My sister in law has breast cancer and was not well enough to go out for dinner. She asked that we bring her a baked potato back to the hotel. After we finished eating, we asked the server if we could buy a plain baked potato. After checking with the "manager", we were told we would have have to buy a complete dinner. I approached the "manager" and asked again, explaining the circumstances. He was extremely rude and refused to let us buy a baked potato. Sorry Crabby Mikes, that is poor customer service and just plain mean. Anyway we ended up paying our very large bill and went to Wendy's for a baked potato.

The Crab legs were not good. They fell apart and were flacking when you opened them.. They did not come out in solid pieces.like they used to do. Very disappointing. Other food was ok but not great. Staff was very good and the best part of the visit.

My family was called liars by management. When I told the waitress my son had not eaten any crab legs she sent over a manager. When I tried to explain to him I had given him a claw to play with after I had eaten the meat he told me it could not be placed on the back on the bar after it had been handled. He did not listen and then proceeded to tell me his waitress had worked there for 2 years and had never lied to him. In other word; my family was lying. I was very insulted and paid even though he tried to pacify me by taking the charge off. Our total was $150.00 and $8.00 would not make a difference; but calling patrons liars definitely does. This was supposed to be an enjoyable evening for my family; but I am still upset. If you have children; beware of this place.

We have family in Myrtle Beach and have eaten at many seafood buffets over the years. Crabby Mike's has one of the best and is our new favorite. I go primarily for the all you can eat crab legs, and it's worth the money to get fresh crab legs that they bring out every few minutes. I didn't even go and look at the rest of the food because between the salad bar and the crab legs I got more than my money's worth.

As Surfside Beach locals for 50 years now we have tried about every restaurant in the area and Crabby Mikes wins the prize for the best around! The food is always steaming hot and the Crab legs snap open with the crispness of an excellent delicacy. With so many items to choose from we always leave well=stuffed and extremely satisfied. We observe the owner, Mike, and Manager, Tom, overseeing an inspired, attentive staff. Both are extremely nice and eager to please all who enter. We eat at Crabby Mikes sometimes 2 to 3 times a week. You will not be disappointed in your meal here. The bad reviews are obviously from competitors wanting to steal his business or from people who aren't used to eating at quality buffet restaurants and are looking only for a cheap meal.

My husband and I have been going to Crabby Mikes for several years. Everytime we go we go at least 2 times in one week, sometimes more. The food is very good and the crab legs are wonderful! The crab legs have just the right amount of "snap" to them and the right amount of salt, the meat comes out in one piece and very seldom do you have to pick the meat out of the shell. The hushpuppies are to die for along with the other seafood they serve. The waitresses are very kind and helpful along with giving good service. We always tell our friends to go there when they visit, the price is very reasonable when compared to other seafood restaurants. We will always go there and nowhere else in Myrtle Beach! Once you go you will never go anywhere else for seafood!

I don't consider myself a "food snob" but when I pay $26 for a buffet, I expect the quality of the food to be good and palatable. YUCK! Thats how I would describe the food. We just finished our meal here and I feel like I should have just walked in and gave them $53. My kids liked the mac & cheese and the ice cream and thats it (they are'nt picky eaters either). Save yourself time and $$$ and go somewhere else.

We stopped in for dinner on March 16h, we have heard good things about Mike's and wanted to check it out, we were not disappointed, we had a party of seven and were seated right away, our server was Shana and she could not have done a better job, the food was all very tasty and warm, not as though it has been sitting out for hours, the Buffet was slightly on the pricy side at $26.99 each, but it was found to be very reasonable after I think I tried everything at least once, and all seven of us walked away very full!!! I would recommend Mike's to anyone, and when I come back to Myrtle Beach, I will be going there again.

Don't waste your time going here and paying $30 a person to eat bad food, Service is lousy, food is left under the heat lamps until it turns to rubber. Crab legs are dolled out at their pleasure. If you want to stand around like a begger child, then come on down and join the the large number of people waiting to grab the next pan full that they bring out. Do not trust them to honor the coupons. Everyone must be together to be seated, we had someone changing a diaper out at the car when we were called after waiting for quite some time. They did not seat us until that person was with our group about 5 minutes later. So after waiting for about 50 minutes we were 10 minutes late for the coupon, Management just laughed at us. We will not go back when they reopen next week and since my party of 5 had 3 people who are local and work in the hospitality area I can assure you we will never recommend this place to anyone

Went to Surside Beach last week-end. Crabby Mike's is a great buffet. We (my 2 sisters and I) went two days in a row. We did not have to wait inline at all to get inside and be seated the first trip; but, did have the beeper the second time. About a 10 minute wait. Didn't have to wait except for one or two people to move at the buffets. We thought the crab legs were delicious and plentiful. The fried shrimp and oysters were cooked "just right"; the cold salad bar was fresh. We really don't have anything negative to say. We'll truly go back.

The food was good and crab legs are included with every buffet purchase, which added a few dollars to the price of course, BUT we showed up about 5 minutes after they opened. This was 3:30 in the afternoon and they were already completely packed. I waited in line at the buffet at least 10 minutes each trip, there was always plenty of food however and the food was very good. The waiters were prompt and attentive, the place was clean, but noisy since it's a very large place. When we left an hour later the entire parking lot was packed and about 50+ people were waiting just to get inside. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant but only if you are patient, the food was very good and the all you can eat snow and king crab legs would get just about anyone to wait a while in line, and oh were they delicious.

Meh. Having been to several MB area buffets, Crabby Mikes is currently in last place. The crab legs were fine, but everything else was a weaker version of what was available elsewhere. As long as Giant Crab and Captain George's are open, we probably won't be returning to Crabby Mike's.

Long wait to be seated forpoor quality , over priced food. Strictly a tourist trap. Food is cold, greasy and the buffet stations are messy. They must count condiments, salad dressings ,salt and pepper,and water to get 120 items. Do yourself a favor and try Ryan's instead. You'll save a ton of money and have a much better buffet style meal.

Worst buffet ever! I recently visited Crabby Mike's on a family vacation to the beach because some of the family members just love the food here, I have no idea what they love about it either. This "120" item buffet is about the same size as a normal buffet but with 5 times the seats, meaning less food for everyone else. Almost every piece of seafood tasted the same, some items didnt even have a taste. I ate better shrimp and scallops on my last deployment to Iraq! People who are writing good reviews have to be crazy, this was the worst $25 I have ever spent in my life.

Me and my husband were at Myrtle Beach for our 25th wedding anniversary. We asked for the best crab legs and were directed to Crabby Mike's. The wait was an hour long, but it was worth the wait. They have the best crab legs and crab cakes in the world. I am not a real fan of seafood so I was skeptical at first but everything on the buffet was great. We will be going back in September and visiting this wonderful place again. I highly recommend Crabby Mike's, also the kids love the music outside.

I've been to this place three times over 5 years.Each visit is worse than the last. The fired items all taste the same. The seafoods is blah. The shrimp are small, overcooked and tasteless. The price is way too high. Two of my three visits did not have crab legs as a buffet item. The salad bar items are usually fresh and edible. Service is slow to non-existant. Go anywhere else on the Grand Strand to get better food.

My husband always has to have at least one trip to Crabby Mike's when we visit Myrtle Beach a few times each year.They do need to lower prices for children because if we had children that would be the deciding factor in us not going.The cheapest thing they have on the menu is $17.99 and that is for a plate of Flounder which most people goes ahead and get the buffet because of this.We sat and watch knowing they bring in a huge amount of money daily.It is great food just pricey.Its sad that not everyone that would like to go there can afford too.

My family takes an anual trip to Myrtle Beach and the one event we keep constant is a dinner at Crabby Mike's Calabash Buffet. Upon arriving at "Crabby Mike's", we have always recieved friendly service along with hasty seating. The times we have waited, due to the popularity of "Crabby Mike's", there has always been entertainment (music, games, etc.) and even service outside of the resturant. The food is very fresh and well prepared. Also, there is food for children and those who do not eat sea food. The resturant is extremely clean and kept up. The noise level is a bit loud, but that is to be expected at a popular resturant. It is a fun and friendly environment! I would refer it to anyone.

Keeping it short the buffet was $24.99 per person for a seafood buffet that had very little seafood on it and had more southern cooking than anything. The taste of the food was below avg. NO WHERE NEAR THE COST! Red Lobster is much better and cheaper. There was a group of 5 seating by us on the right that said, "it was a big waste of our money" the group of 5 on our left had a pipe that started leaking on them and had to be moved to another table. Don't waste your money or time.

We go every time we're in Myrtle Beach & we've always enjoyed the experience! There's a great selection of food, literally something for every taste, it's always been well prepared, tasty, fresh and delicious. The kids enjoy the music, dancing & hula hooping while we wait to be seated. I really enjoyed the shrimp & scallops, the prime rib was good, everybody else loved the crab legs. The wait staff has always been attentive & there's no lag time between refills on iced tea or drinks. Even when the place was packed, the staff was right there taking care of us. The buffet is well worth the money. Can't wait to go back when we get our next vacation! We will return again & again!

The stuffed crab was burned and the rest of the fried food tasted as if it had been cook in the same fryers the burned stuffed crabs. The crab legs were good and some of the deserts were ok but for $25 I don't think they even came close to being that good!

We make a trip to Crabby Mike's every year while we're at the beach specifically to have all we can eat crab legs, shrimp & oysters. It's a buffet.. so there is a bit of food for everyone (yes spaghetti, prime rib, etc) to please those in the family that don't like seafood. I only eat the seafood and must say that it's the best buffet I've found in or around Myrtle Beach. I always have enjoyed their crab legs. The price is a bit steep if you have children. The wait staff is great about emptying your basket of shells and bringing you clean plates.

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! I am a weekender and visit here at Crabby Mikes often. I have never had a bad experience, not one! If you are looking for somewhere that has a unique atmosphere, smokin' hot waitresses, and the best seafood in town- then go to Crabby Mikes- I promise, you will want a t-shirt! Ay Bud! P.S. Haters- maybe you were rude, maybe something is wrong with your taste buds, idk. Were about southern hospitality down aqui.

My family and I went to the beach last May. We ate at Crabby Mike's...the prime rib was wonderful. I found that for the money, there really wasn't alot of selection. The waitress was rude and we ask to talk to the manager. He was really nice and apologized for her. It was a clean place, but I felt that for a 9 and 11 year old, 24.99 a plate was much too much. They should have a different rate for the children. I might consider going back again for the Prime Rib, but only if they change their prices for the children.

One of my favorite places to eat. Crabby mike's has a excellent selection of non-seafood items which satisfy the picky eaters in the family. The prime rib was excellent! you will be lucky if you are seated in under 30 minuets but the wait is worth it.

I am a Surfside Beach local and there is only one word to describe this restaurant, "Groase". I at here one time in the 8 years I have lived here and once is enough. The food is floating in grease and c'mon Shrimp, Crab Legs, Scallops, Speghetti. Hmm, which one doesn't fit in the group? They need to decide what they specialize in and stick with it. However, I can certainly tell you, it is not seafood or Italian. The people writing good reviews for this restaurant must be related to the owner. This place is terrible. The group should read Shrimp, Crab Legs, Scallops, Speghetti, Food Poisoning. This restaurant is a disaster.

Our party of 4 visited Crabby Mike's on Saturday, 9/12. Upon arrival we were told the wait would be 45 minutes which seemed extreme for September. In reality, the wait was only about 10 minutes. Enough negative - Crabby's buffet was as good as ever. I personally ate what seemed like a whole tray of fried shrimp and my best friend devoured a ton of crab legs. No one in our party complained about any of the food quality - it was all very good. This is still the best seafoood buffet at the beach.

Best buffet in Myrtle Beach. The crab legs were great, not watery. Everything was fresh. The sauces and dressings are prepared fresh by their executive chef and they taste great. Every buffet is around $20 or more per person, this is the only one worth the money. Our server/waitress was amazing. Clean plates were always on time, napkins and wet naps given after each trip to the buffet, our butter for the crab legs was replaced with fresh each time, drink refills were always offered...it was just perfect. Reading some of these reviews suprised me, since we had great, fresh food and great service. Maybe it's hit or miss?

My husband and I go to crabby mike's every time we go to myrtle beach. We love the food, the service and the atmosphere. I have not found any other restauraunt in the area that competes to their quality of food. We will be going to the beach next week and the thing we look forward to the most is going to crabby mikes to have an enjoyable dinner. Thank you for your service.

Crabby Mikes is definitely has the best Seafood Buffet in Myrtle Beach in my opinion. If you want it they have it including all you can eat crab legs. They have a wide variety of Seafood and Non Seafood items but of course I always eat the seafood. Great Service! Great Food! All for a Reasonable Price. Try this one! You won't be sorry. I have been going to Myrtle beach for over 20 years now and have ate at a wide variety of seafood restuarants over the years until I discovered Crabby Mikes. Now Crabby Mikes is where I go for Seafood when I am in Myrtle Beach. 5 Gold Starts to Crabby Mikes and thier wonderful, courteous staff! Try it......You'll Love it!

Not worth the 24 dollars. Only seafood is baked fish with no seasoning. Small scallops and small oysters overly fried. The deserts were lower quality than a mom & pop restaurant. The prime rib was excellant but forget about everthing else. Also, for 24 bucks you are packed in like ants. I have yeat to find ANY real seafood in Myrtle Beach. Next trip will be to Panama City on the Gulf of Mexico where REAL seafood can be found in abundance.. Dissatisfied...
