Get there early for dinner as they do not take reservations. Place is huge so the wait time is short. Awesome buffet dishes from crab legs to prime roast beef. Huge salad bar and lots of warm dishes to chose from. Pricey but worth going at least once.

The wait times during the summer... More

I asked a few residents to recommend there favorite buffet in town and this was it. Me and my wife enjoyed the large amount of choices in food. My favorite: fried oysters and catfish. Me and the wifes negatives: The prime rib was tough and a few deserts of the deserts need improvement.

We enjoy vacationing in Myrtle Beach and each time we go we always make it a point to visit Crabby Mikes. The food has been great each time and even our picky kids enjoy eating there.

Crabby Mikes is, in my opinion, the best place to go in (or near) Myrtle Beach for crab legs. The calabash seafood is good, but the crab legs are the best. Come early and expect to wait. If you have kids, there's a DJ and hula hoop area outside that helps the kids pass the wait time. There's also a... More

From Shrimp and Grits to jambalaya to Prime Rib. They had Fried Chicken and 4 different soups that were all good. We had a waiter that was... More

Wow and wow! Wonderful 3 hour cruise in an immaculate yacht. Great scenery with visits to various bays and a mussel farm and salmon farm beneath majestic peaks covered in the most intense green forest I have ever seen. Captain Matt gave a running commentary of the scenery and history while mate Ailie provided fresh mussels and salmon at the... More
