Best Seafood Buffet, Charleston,SC

Know of any seafood buffets in the Charleston, SC area? We've been to the Crowne Plaza's seafood buffet at Hilton Head, SC, but wanted to know if there are any in the Charleston, SC area.

Town and Country Inn on Savannah Hwy used to have one on Friday evening. I have never personally been but it was very popular. They may still have it.

Not really much in the way of buffets in the Charleston area, seafood or otherwise.

What is it about Savannah Highway that draws buffet restaurants? Trotter's Restaurant in the Town & Country Inn has an American-food buffet, very popular with businesspeople and families at lunchtime. There are usually some fried seafood choices, but like seafood buffets anywhere, the fish/shrimp suffers by sitting on a steam table.

El Dorado has an interesting selection, not just build-your-own tacos but also Mexican stews and side dishes.

Nirlep Indian Restaurant has had a buffet for years. Not my favorite, but worth the trip to sample all the sauces.

Seafood buffets are not popular in Charleston, that is more of a Myrtle Beach thing.

Never seen a seafood buffet in Charleston. Not sure I'd wanna see one. Not seafood, but they do have an expansive lunch buffet: Nirlep Indian Restaurant (pointed out by MikeStone above).

Gullah Cuisine has a hit-or-miss lunch buffet that usually has some fish on it but it's not one of those AYCE load-em-up deals. It's more like Sunday lunch, when there are lots of dishes on the table and you get a little bit of each.

Charleston is THE antithesis to buffet food. In my experience, buffet food usually equates to vast quantities of sub-par food. Charleston restuarants are known for smaller portions of deluxe, suberb, divine morsels of finely crafted epicurian delights! :)
