We went to Crabby Mikes twice while in Surfside Beach. Our waiter Tommy was exceptional.There was a wide variety of food to choose from. We did not have to wait for a table and the service was wonderful.

Visiting Crabby Mikes was one of the nice dinners we had on our recent trip. We enjoyed especially the crab legs, crabby cakes, scallops, tenderloin bites, boom boom shrimp, and salad bar. Our server, James, did an excellent job and made our experience even better.

I'll preface this review by stating I am normally a health conscious diner. I was not expecting to be healthy when I visited Crabby Mikes, but it goes without saying, there are no healthy options. What surprised me, however, was how much it would cost...More

I believe it depends on their age. If you give the restaurant a call they are very friendly and should be able to better answer. My party had 5 kids in it all various ages.
