Surfside Beach, South Carolina
Crabby Mike's is big and brash and, on any given night, crowded with hungry tourists. But happy patrons say it's among the best places to pack it in on the buffet-happy South Carolina coast. All the favorites are here: snow crab legs, fried and broiled shrimp, shrimp and grits, fried scallops and oysters, baked salmon, crab cakes, cod, clams, mussels, mahi-mahi, and so much more. On busy days, you may even find a DJ, karaoke, and hula hoops on hand to make the wait fly by.
Reviewer rave: "Crab legs were super fresh, full of sweet, flavorful meat, and easy to crack and eat. After a so-so experience at another seafood buffet nearby, this totally hit the spot. The fried seafood was all delicious and clearly hand-breaded, not from a box. I never have fried oysters at a buffet because they're always disappointing, but these looked homemade so I gave them a try — and they were so good I went back for seconds." — Kathryn L. on Yelp
