A Family Tradition Since 1986... A Landmark on the Grand Strand, The Original Benjamin’s Calabash Seafood serves fresh local seafood daily. Our seafood buffet is world-famous for introducing the Myrtle Beach area to cooking seafood Calabash style. Calabash style seafood is lightly battered and deep-fried. If great food, family fun, and a good time are what you’re craving, then you’ve found the place. So sail on in for the adventures of a true nautical dining experience. Be sure to save room for an abundance of sensational food and memories.


JIMMY FROST, OUR VERY OWN MASTER SHIPWRIGHT... has either built or restored all the models seen at The Original Benjamin's. However, these aren't your little brother's model ship kits! Jimmy handcrafts his models and prefers them to be on a large scale, like our 18 foot Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout the restaurant you’ll see Jimmy’s work applied to historical cruise liners, Schooners, military ships, and airplanes.
