Some of the best seafood I've had at the beach... Very impressed!!! The crab legs were perfectly cooked, grouper and cheesecake were best I've had. I will definitely come back.

I mistakenly visited this buffet thinking it was the original Benjamin's Calabash. Huge mistake! The food was cold and tasteless, very unremarkable. What was remarkable, however, was the price. $34.99 per person which the waitress didn't tell me until after I was seated. Overall just...More

Definitely NOT one the better seafood restaurants in Myrtle Beach! The restaurant design and decor leave a lot to be desired. The food was just ok, some of it being cold when it should be hot. The scallops were under cooked and the "steak" (the...More

Ridiculously overpriced mediocre buffet food. Perhaps have less items and focus on the quality more? Fried shrimp and mac and cheese were only items that I tried (and I tried bites of about20 things -a salmon dish was so disgusting I spit it out). Super...More
