There is nothing on the buffet authentic! Everything is processed in similarities of seafood. The only thing that looks like what it is was the peel and eat shrimp and they were so small it. Second visit after many years and last!

The food was a little greasy but still ok. I do wish there was more grilled and steamed items, though. I think that particular time wasn't a good one for them so we may try again. Second time may be a charm!

My husband had heard good things about Fantail and wanted to stop...so on the way back to Indiana we decided to give it a try. I knew it was seafood, but didn't realize it was buffet-only until we were seated. I am not fond of any buffet, but especially a seafood buffet. The food was not very appealing. There were... More

The fried catfish and the fried oysters were really good and I usually don't eat either. Sampled everything but liked the two mentioned above. Hushpuppies were better than usual. It is a buffet and it is fried mostly. They had peel and eat shrimp on ice too. The service was outstanding. It's a fixed price. Alcohol available.

I ordered a glass of wine (chardonay) to go with my meal. I swear it was watered down literally. It actually tasted as if it was a glass full of water. I let the waitress know my concerns. She returned with another glass that did at least taste like it had some alcohol in it. To her credit, she only... More
