5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

while expensive for a buffet there were plenty of choices. Crab legs, oysters raw and fried. crab cakes and just about any thing but a lobster. Various vegetables and desserts.

This was a disappointing meal. The food was ordinary-nothing special. The price for the buffet was ridiculously high considering the quality of the food. The decor needs some brightening up. We will not return.

We're at Myrtle Beach for the week so you know we are going to try to find the best seafood deal we could find. We thought we had found one in the all you can eat buffet at Captain Bennett's Calabash Seafood buffet. Just the name alone is a mouthful! When we walked in there was a strong fishy smell.... More

The staff were friendly but that didn't make up for the fried everything, rubbery shrimp and uninspiring food.

Food quality very low. I was sick the next day. There is no way I would ever go back. Price per adult 33.95 plus 2.99 for drink. Food was old and greasy.

I ate here around 3:30pm for linner (lunch+dinner👍🏼). The price was $31.99+tax for the buffet. The food was luke-warm at best. The selection was not great... or maybe the food looked like it had been sitting out since yesterday so that's why the selection was limited🤷🏻‍♀️ anyway, if you're not going to smash some crab legs, and I mean a...

Above par price for below par cuisine. Staff was friendly and accommodating but don't prompt on refills and checking out. Went around 7 and it was SOOO busy. We waited for 25 minutes for a buffet of food that was very sparse. (Don't order a pina colada) they were gross.

We are here yesterday the food was good lots of fried food on buffet although everything was good I really enjoyed the fried oysters and peach cobbler. If you're not a big eater you will waste your money as it is a bit expensive. Overall i enjoyed my experience.

We wanted some crab legs but the place we usually go was being remodeled so we decided to give Bennetts a try. The crab legs were great but the variety of seafood was outstanding. They did a great job of rotating the products so everything was hot and the fried seafood was crisp. Looking forward to returning.

In Myrtle Beach, hours vary a lot off season. But we arrived early and with coupons in hand when the food was fresh and before it was busy so we had excellent service. The selection was large. The fried food had the usual breading and not true Calabash light batter- but still good. We would return. The only down side,... More
