This was our first time at Crabby Mike's. We had been to 2 other seafood buffets in the past, but wanted to try this one. We got there at around 4:45pm on a Thursday and the place was packed! We did get a table right away, though. Service was good--our waitress made sure all our drinks were always filled and... More

This place is a must for our family. It is usually very crowded, but for a good reason. The food is great and plenty of it. Great variety of food on the buffet, which is huge. The crab legs are fantastic. We will definitely be back!

We went at 8pm on a Saturday night. Had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. Food was great for a buffet. Great selections and the lines were never more than 4 people long. Fresh food, especially the crab, were continuously brought out. Very friendly staff. They were prompt in bringing drink refills. Since we stayed, and enjoyed, for... More

This is a great place to take the family.....lots of choices!! However...a bit pricey if not everyone in your group likes seafood. Servers extremely nice....plenty of clean plates & drink refills without asking!

Over 20 years we have been to many of the Calabash Seafood locations around Myrtle Beach. Last year we decided to try Crabby Mike's. We liked it so much we visited it twice during vacation this year. Staff is always friendly. Our waitress (Kiesha) this year was top notch. It's a buffet and is a tray is empty, it will... More

We always try to visit Crabby Mike's whenever we are in Coastal South Carolina. It is our VERY favorite restaurant. They have virtually all kinds of seafood - including all-you-can-eat crab legs. My husband loves the shrimp (they have many different kinds). Since I am not big on seafood, I enjoy the barbecue ribs, prime rib, and lots of other... More

If you are trying to find a buffet that has seafood and other options for the whole family that's good, this is the place for you! I wasn't disappointed at anything I put in my mouth. We used to always eat at Captain George, but they have fallen way off. Crabby Mikes has them beat for sure

One of the main reasons we came to Myrtle Beach for the weekend was to find all-you-can-eat crab legs. Crabby Mikes did not disappoint! I was actually shocked by how quickly we were seated (no wait and we arrived about 8PM) as well as how great the buffet food was. Sometimes you're weary about how warm/fresh the food is and... More
