No complaints here. Crab legs were great! Must admit that was about all I ate. Husband ate other food and enjoyed it. Desserts were good too. They have a ramp for a reason-so you can roll out because you are too full to walk out....More

I love crab legs and being at the beach I just knew I would be in crab leg heaven, I was wrong!! The crab legs were mushy from being overcooked. They charge too much to serve nasty food

Our food and service was great! Our waitress was Nedra! She was wonderful and super helpful and very quick to get us whatever we needed. The food was warm and there were plenty of choices for our whole family! Loved it!

I would have given 3.5 stars but that's not an option...My husband was determined to have a seafood buffet during spring break and he chose the Giant Crab. I haven't been to a full seafood buffet in years and I didn't have high expectations. We...More

Horrible service from the beginning until the end. I have ate there twice, and both experiences where horrible. I blame Benjamin's, the "Good Seafood Restaurant" right beside of this sunken ship, for both experiences. I would have never been there, but my family wanted seafood...More

We paid 33 dollars per adult head. They need to have some different options for families. It would be nice if you could pay for one visit to the buffet or even have a less cost option if you are not going to get crab....More

Our annual trip. As good as the last time. Still expensive $97 for two adults and a child. A lot of choices, less seafood than last time though.

Never seen BOGO but we got a discount based on the time we went. Buffet was okay... can't say I'd go back. The crab legs were super salty too.

At the award-winning Giant Crab Seafood Restaurant, quantity takes a back seat to quality. We offer the freshest, best-tasting seafood buffet in town. From the minute you see The Giant Crab, you know it’s not just another all-you-can-eat seafood buffet. Sure, it specializes in serving seafood, but it does so in such tremendous, really, “giant” fashion with an emphasis on freshness. A steadfast and diligent crew keeps the buffet well-stocked and, you guessed it, fresh.
