Took my husband and two kids here for his birthday. Service was great. Food was only so so and way overpriced. I like captain george's better. I will not go back.

The Giant Crab is one of many seafood buffets that offer all you can eat crab legs in Myrtle Beach. You can't really go far anywhere in town without seeing and all you can eat crab leg place. Here's is the deal. These places are not cheap. If you are not going to eat crab legs then you are probably... More

We were there with a tour group and many of them were so delighted with all the choices. I felt most of the items tasted the same and didn't have a distinct flavor I was looking for. It is a great place to bring a family because there is something for everyone. I felt the price was a little steep,... More

We usually go to Myrtle about once a year and we always visit the Giant Crab. If you love sea food and crab legs its well worth the time in line and the money it is so good the staff is top of the line and the food is off the hook. Even if your line is out in the... More

The food is fine, just not matched to the cost and what's up with everything tasting salty? I had the crab legs, fried shrimp and scallops and everything was horribly salty! The rest of the food was fine, salad bar was good, but there was a bit of confusion with the frozen margarita. This was very weird, no pricing on... More

Did not have to wait for crabs to be put out. LOL, they just kept coming. Cheryl was our waitress, and she was a very good, pleasant and friendly person. Glad to have her as our waitress.

I honestly can't leave a review about any of the other items on the buffet, because I only eat crab legs! I probably ate 6 pounds! The best time to go is between 4-7 pm. They close at 8:30, and it seems like after 7, you get all of the "leftover" crab legs of the day. They are really fresh... More

I was one of ~ 50 diners in our group. We were seated and drink orders taken quickly. We were then showed to the buffet, where there was food as far as the eyes could see. The staff was very efficient and kept all of the trays of food filled up. As soon as something looked like there was none... More

Every time I make a trip to the beach, I eat here at least once or twice during my visit. This is my favorite seafood restaurant and they offer soooooo many different kinds of foods. You will not be disappointed! Who doesn't like unlimited crab legs!!!!
