I always love eating at Crabby Mikes when I come to Myrtle Beach SC. Our server, Brittany was one of the best servers we've ever had. We loved her personality. She anticipated our needs before we had a chance to ask for anything. Brittany made our dinning experience an exceptional experience. In addition I'd like to give a kudos to... More

My sister and I often frequent this spot during our visits to Myrtle Beach, but today was a poor experience. While the oysters were excellent the service was below mediocre and the food sat in grease. The prices of the buffet was ridicoulous 33.95 ! I understand paying for crab legs... But this was unreal...

Great food, great service. Wide variety of both seafood, crab, other meats and buffet items. Brianna was our server and she was excellent and kept us well supplied. Lyle the floor supervisor was very polite and checked on us to make sure our experience was great !!! Definitely the best all around buffet in the Myrtle Beach area.

My car club went here to eat while visiting Myrtle Beach for the Run to the Sun Car Show. There were 45 of us seated at once along with the whole restaurant being full. You're seated quickly, drinks immediately, and stacks of plates keep coming. Hushpuppies are delivered in baskets to the table. The buffet is set up by section.... More

Have always wanted to try but being the only seafood lover in the family it is hard to get them to go. Went last night with my Cousin from Argentina who loves seafood and we really enjoyed the food and the decor. I told my husband about it and he said he would try it because it had the prime... More

Our waiter Steven was very professional and attentive. The food was typical for a seafood buffet. Manager Paul was very interested in everything and it made for a good visit.

We had an excellent waitress by the name of Brittany, she worked with my friend tirelessly teaching her how to crack crab legs the correct way! Brittany was very friendly and patient! The food and atmosphere were excellent as well! We... More
