This locally owned Calabash-style seafood buffet is locally owned and operated and has been in business for more than 23 years. That’s the best way to separate the good buffets from the fly-by-night operations. Crabby Mike’s provides fresh local seafood that keeps locals and visitors coming back year after year.
Crabby Mike’s is known for its quality as much as its quantity, serving fresh, locally caught seafood from the docks of nearby Murrells Inlet. Enjoy the fresh catch of grouper, Mahi Mahi, swordfish or local shrimp served steamed, broiled, fried, blackened or scampi. Some seafood requires a bit more travel, such as the giant Alaskan crab legs and grilled Tuna.

Side items include roasted potatoes, wild rice pilaf and sautéed vegetables, plus plenty of fresh-baked breads and their famous hushpuppies. There’s a soup-and-salad bar, a dessert station, and a raw bar the features some of your seafood favorites like oysters and crab legs steamed and iced. Guests also can order seafood platters from the a la carte menu, which includes lobster, flounder, scallops, clams and more. Crabby Mike’s also offers a children’s buffet with all the kids’ favorites, including chicken fingers, pizza and ice cream, while the adults can take advantage of the full bar with great beer, wine and cocktail selections.
