We tried Crabby Mikes and Captain George's too, but the selection here wins. Shrimp creole, wontons, steak all great. And of course the crab legs - excellent. The campy decor and atmosphere make it a kitschy, fun, touristy thing to do.

We eat here every time we come to Myrtle Beach. The food is always fresh and they have a great selection. They even have many things for people who do not like seafood. The buffet is around $30/person. Would highly recommend eating here.

I think my favorite part of a Myrtle Beach vacation is a trip to Original Benjamin's. Seafood is alway excellent and this trip we got a waterway view. There are so many choices that it is hard to decide what to eat. I try to stick with the seafood, but always seem to get a few traditional fares--roast beef, rice, etc. Everyone's favorite is the all-you-can-eat crablegs, but shrimp, oysters, scallops, fish, etc, etc, etc are hard to turn down. We live on the water in Virginia, so seafood is readily available, but this is still my favorite. We have a Captain George's here in Williamsburg, and there is no comparison-Benjamin's by far MUCH better. Looking forward to next year's visit.
