New season brings change to one of the Grand Strand's oldest Calabash-style seafood restaurants.

Seafood House Calabash Buffet has opened for the 2015 season, and the much-anticipated opening brings a number of changes.

Serving the area’s freshest seafood, and according to many, the world’s best crab legs, the buffet consists of a wide array of items that can best be categorized as seafood, steaks, country food, a cold bar, soups and salads, and desserts. This year, specially designated kids and dessert bars have been added. Keeping with the sea faring theme, these new additions look like mini ships that sail alongside the main ship--the enormous buffet. Under sails and an actual ship’s rigging, visitors have unlimited access to food that is carefully chosen and expertly prepared.

Seafood House Calabash Buffet serves food that is fresh, and when possible, fish that is caught in local waters. When asked about the buffet’s most popular item, management and wait staff were quick to mention their AYCE (All You Can Eat) crab legs. When the locals wait among the tourists for these monsters, you know they’re good! The slow cooked prime rib is a close second.

As one of the largest restaurants, not to mention seafood buffets, on the Grand Strand, the sheer size of Seafood House Calabash Buffet allows them the opportunity to do things that others in the business simply can’t do. Their pirate themed building plays host to pirates and winches who serve as wait staff and to mermaids who actually swim in a specially designed 10,000-gallon pool.

It’s been said that dining should be an experience. Not only should the food be delicious, but the entertainment aspect should be fun as well. This year’s addition of the kid’s bar, the new pirate-themed décor, and the on-going activity make Seafood House Calabash Buffet the perfect place for families. There is truly no place like it! The entire off-season was spent making improvements that customers suggested. They even expanded their gift gallery--a real treasure trove for kids of all ages.

The ample main dining area, as well as their private dining rooms, makes Seafood House Calabash Buffet a popular choice for motorcoaches and private parties. Open April-November, they are always ready for groups, small and large.

How do you find Seafood House? Ask any tourist, or look for the multi-colored building with the ship out front. For those who need a little more direction, Seafood House is located at 700 Water Avenue in Surfside Beach near the intersection of 544 and Business 17.

The restaurant is open seven days a week beginning at 4:00 pm. During June-August, they open at noon on Saturday ad Sunday. Visit Seafood House online at http://www.SeafoodHouse.US for discount coupons and special offers.
