Crabby Prices

April 21, 2021


It’s no secret that Alaskan crab leg prices have increased lately, so here’s the scoop on how this affects Myrtle Beach seafood restaurants.

Or perhaps we should say increased dramatically, because a seasonal lighter harvest in the spring compounded with industry workforce shortages due to Covid-19 has caused a supply chain issue that drove prices up quite a bit – to the tune of up to $22 per pound, depending on where you are buying them.

Now consider that the average person eats about two pounds of crab legs when they sit down and get serious about it. It is easy to see how a $42.99 price per person for an all-you-can-eat buffet that includes crab legs is an extremely great value.

At Pirate’s Table Calabash Seafood Buffet, we always serve the biggest and choicest crab legs we can procure. When the price increased so dramatically, we chose to increase the per-person price of our buffet by only a few dollars. 

Other area buffets have chosen to add $20 per person to their buffet price to include crab legs. A nearby menu-based seafood restaurant offers three crab leg clusters in a steam pot for $39.

However, if you want to treat yourself to excellent food and friendly service for a fair value, then come aboard Pirate’s Table. It will be our honor to serve you as many crab legs as you like.
