Our 7 year old son has a peanut allergy, and as a result, buffets tend to scare us away. We called ahead to the Giant Crab (on Restaurant Row at Myrtle Beach) and were put at ease. There are no peanuts in the restaurant, and the only items containing tree nuts are those that we would normally avoid and were obvious (baklava, walnut brownies, etc). Several of the staff members made sure we were comfortable throughout our meal. Secondary to safety (which is always the most important thing in a food-allegic family), the food was great! We had a large group, and everyone remarked that the buffet was the best they had had at Myrtle Beach (and the others don't hvae our food restrictions). Of course, everyone has different comfort levels, and mine is pretty exacting, but we truly enjoyed the Giant Crab. I recommend you call or speak to a staff member so they can 'show you the ropes' but for us it was a great evening.
