Amazing food every time. They also have a very friendly staff.


Everybody that works at Crabby Mikes was very nice and very helpful. We loved our waitress she was delightful!!! But our experience wasn't what we expected it to be, we had a 15 to 20 min wait so we headed to the bar area, and all I could smell was the restroom which was located around the corner. I ordered a drink and spilled my drink before I could even get a sip, the bartender was so nice to replace my drink, TY Mr. Bartender!!! Anyway, we were seated on the deck to the right of the restroom, and guess what all I could smell was the restrooms, it was a strong odor that just ruined dinner. The price per person is ridiculous it was $43 per adult, not including a drink. The food was fair at best, my crab legs were watery and so salty I could barely eat them. Don't go you will be disappointed!!!


The food was great. Very pleasant server. The price has more than doubled. On fixed income, can't afford that kind of a night out. The time before it was about fifty dollars for the two of us not counting tip. This time it was one hundred dollars before tip. Out of our range for a good meal. A shame.


The food was delicious!!! The crab legs were cooked perfect! The best part of dinner was our waitress Alyssa!!. She made sure we had fresh plates at all times, our drinks were refilled before we ever had to ask and our table was cleared of dirty dishes before we got back with our food. Her attitude was super positive!! We will be back!!


We were heading out of Charleston for a seafood buffet. We had eaten @ Capt. George’s & really liked it. On the way, we saw the billboard for Crabby Mikes 30 mins closer to Charleston. We checked out the reviews, like you’re doing now, & decided to give it a try. It was $3 cheaper too. I ate 9 clusters of crab legs & prime rib plus delishy She Crab soup. I can barely walk to the car & am looking forward to the long drive back to C Town. Excellent service from Taryn! She anticipated our every need & was fabulous. Don’t let the busy parking lot deter you. We waited for 43 mins & there were 46 groups ahead of us. We will definitely visit again!


So good once wasn't enough. We come here every year on our annual Myrtle Beach vacation. Just happened to be here before and after our trip to Orlando this year. Food was excellent as usual and our servers were tremendous. Amanda was especially terrific on our second trip. Can't wait for our next visit.


My family and I went to Crabby Mike's after a terrible visit to The Original Benjamins earlier in the week. Benjamins crab legs were dry and the seafood was overly greasy. Crabby Mike's crab legs were delicious and juicy! The seafood at Crabby Mike's was lightly battered and fried to perfection. The dessert bar was also a hit and had an awesome selection. Although the wait was a little long(about an hour) it was definitely worth it. I guess to find the best food you do have to follow a crowd! I definitely recommend checking out Crabby Mike's if you love delicious Calabash style seafood and great crab legs.


We went to Crabby Mike's for the 1st time on Friday, August 20th. We have a home in the area and we normally go to the Original Benjamins (5 stars). this was such a disappointment in comparison. The buffet which is supposed to include crab legs was $43.00 per person. I can see that if the crab legs were decent, however, they were awful. They were small and they only bring out a few at a time so you have to stand there over the buffet and wait. They were so salty that they were not edible, no sweetness to them at all. The food on the buffet was not hot, it was warm but you could tell it was probably prepared way earlier in the day because nothing tasted fresh. One would think at a seafood buffet, you would be able to eat the seafood. For $43 I basically ate a salad. They don't care if you complain because they are going to continue bring in tourist. Stay away from this place and go to the Original Benjamins. They are always amazing.


This is the best seafood buffet I have ever had. We usually go to another popular seafood buffet however recent reviews of other place going down hill …we decided to try here.The crab legs were awesome.. flavor and ease of meat coming out . The service was awesome. Matt at the front door was so helpful and friendly and made us feel at home. Matt even came back to our table to make sure everything was ok. Tommy our waiter kept our glasses filled and plates coming and super nice. He has been there for seven years and was second to none in service. Believe the hype .. this is the seafood buffet to go to in Myrtle Beach !


Had dinner here while staying at Myrtle Beach, This place is an all you can eat seafood buffet with many different choices including our favorite crab legs, you can also get shrimp and lobster off the buffet. If you enjoy seafood and lots of it then definitely get here early and enjoy, you can thank me later.

Huge selection of food! Very good crab legs and fried shrimp. The she-crab soup was a disappointment...too much nutmeg, it overpowered everything. Overall the food was good. But we waited an hour for a table. The buffet price was not listed. It was $43.95 even for my very small just-turned 13 year old granddaughter. Ended up being around $250 for 4 adults and 1 child. No drinks. Probably won't go back.

I get that this is a tourist town, so the prices will be higher, but this is some seriously low quality food, for some high quality food prices. This would be an $18-$20 buffet, in most places. The service was pretty awesome, though. Those people really hustle. It's such a big place with everybody funneling through pathways to the buffet, you constantly have to dodge servers and people being seating, on your way to and from the buffet. I certainly regret going.

Crabby Mike's is a fantastic place to have dinner for crab of course, plus the prime rib, steaks, salads, vegetables, drinks, desserts, etc are all awesome! The staff all wore masks and were very friendly. There is a DJ spinning tunes out front while you wait to keep everyone entertained. I highly recommend for a great meal and a good time!
