The staff were some of the friendliest and attentive that I have seen in Myrtle Beach. Our staff kept our drinks filled and the table clean. They were very informative and attentive at all times. Very good service all around.

We go to Benjamin's Calabash Seafood Buffet every time we come to Myrtle Beach. Benjamin has a huge selection of a variety of food. The seafood is fresh and the presentation is wonderful. The food is absolutely scrumptious and worth every penny.

This is he worst most over priced rip off. $35 per plate for horrible cheap food. The Original Benjamin’s is what you want.

This place was atrocious. I hate that we even paid to eat here. We should have walked out the second we walked in. It just wasn't up to par as some other buffets we have visited in the past. Some of their options were just...More

Folks, I don't usually start a review off like this, but, "Dude"! Yow-za. This place is insanity. From the second you walk in, your're lost. Thankfully, there's a bar immediately in front of you and they will find you when your table is ready! Once...More

Not impressed for paying over $225. There may be a huge selection, but for me there were only 4 items that looked appealing. Next time I'll skip and go to Captain D's and save $200!!

Had dinner at this buffet. Great food. All you can eat crab legs. Plenty of sides and a decent dessert bar. I finally felt like I got my money’s worth at a buffet. Big enough for large families. Friendly and attentive service.
