Seafood World Buffet

First-time visitors to Myrtle Beach may be puzzled by the proliferation of restaurants advertising “Calabash Seafood.” As the story goes, restaurants just over the border in Calabash, North Carolina, were renowned for their fried seafood. When restaurateurs imported the cooking style to the Myrtle Beach area, they dubbed it “Calabash.” Today, the term still applies to fried seafood, but also more generically to large buffets featuring seafood.
The food isn’t fancy, but there’s plenty of it, and it’s plenty tasty. Befitting its name, there are many items featuring crab, including mounds of crab legs. In addition to a number of fried seafood dishes, Seafood World also offers broiled and steamed seafood items along with dozens of other choices (the restaurant says there are 100 in all), including chicken, beef, salads, and vegetables. Save room for the delicious desserts available for after the meal.
Without a doubt, eating out while on vacation is one of the best parts about being on vacation.

After all, it’s a vacation adventure in its own right – onward to dinner!
