If you’ve been to Myrtle Beach you’ve definitely seen and probably eaten at the best buffet in South Carolina. I’m only on the latter end of that assumption. But it’s mainly because I’m not a huge buffet person. I absolutely love the option to try many things on the menu for one cost. However, I personally just don’t eat enough to justify the cost in most cases. And to-go boxes are usually frowned upon. But if you or someone in your family has a large appetite and loves variety, buffet restaurants are a great option.
While there are certain chain restaurants that offer buffets (and can be delicious), it can be hard to know which restaurants are worth the cost. You want to make sure the variety, quality, and freshness of the food are up to par. That’s why our friends at The Daily Meal created a list of the best buffets in each state. And it was a Myrtle Beach institution that took the title of the best buffet in South Carolina.
And of course, its one that specializes in seafood. But in a state and city, with endless all-you-can-eat seafood spots, it’s hard to know where to go. The gimmicks like giant crabs, lighthouses, and other larger-than-life statues are there to draw you in. But a memorable exterior doesn’t always translate to memorable food. That’s where these rankings come in.
To create this list, the food experts at The Daily Meal tracked down a bevy of beloved all-you-can-eat deals from every state. They then judged them according to food selection, décor, ratings on review sites, and level of local renown. If these buffets are on the pricier side, they made sure that they are worth the price. Keep reading to see which Myrtle Beach favorite is the best buffet in South Carolina as well as standouts from neighboring states.
