We tried to research dinner options but were having dinner on a whim because of activities for the day and couldn't find a good one fast enough. Most of the buffets were packed but this one looked decent and didn't have too large of a...More

Seated quickly and above average food. I would recommend this if you like standard seafood, no speciality fish. Reasonably priced.

My family & I go to Bennett's every time we come to Myrtle Beach. They have 3 locations in the area, so it's convenient if you're staying in North Myrtle or Myrtle. The price is a bit high at nearly $30 a person, but it...More

I have had seafood buffets several times in Myrtle Beach and decided to try Bennett's. Mainly because they were the only restaurant that would give my mom a discounted rate since she's vegetarian. The first set of crab legs I got was extremely salty!! The...More

Hi TammyC822, I'm sorry you only thought the food was fairly good on your last visit, as the oldest Calabash Buffett in North Myrtle Beach we strive for excellence and I hate we missed that mark with you! I hope we're lucky enough to get...More

Had a mid-afternoon early dinner here. Lots of choices on the buffet. Some not quite identifiable. But unless you go to a buffet to "pig out", the check is pretty steep for two normal people: $54.00 plus drinks. Ouch! Not gourmet, but OK. We could...More

We stopped here for the first time and found the buffet to be much better than some of the others. The food is fresh, hot, and extremely tasty. The crab legs are awesome, and everything is cooked to perfection! Highly recommended!
