Probably the best seafood buffet in Columbus. We lived in Gahanna and visited there a couple times in the last 3 months. food is always fresh. Lots of selection too ( Crab Legs, stir fry lobster, and sashimi)

Our family visited Fort Rapids every year. Water parks are great. Kids all had fun in there and enjoyed the western style decoration. We had some issues in the room but got helped pretty soon. Nothing major. Look forward to coming back next year!
