Had the Gulf Snapper, it was wonderful! Husband had Kobe burger and enjoyed it, though my snapper was the highlight. Great service too!

Well worth the money! The seafood and other items on the buffet were fresh and tasted awesome. The creme brulee is also wonderful!

Had the crab cake appetizer, the crab crusted snapper entrée, and the bread pudding desert. My wife had the mixed grill and the creme brule. All were as good or better than anything we've had before. The preparation and flavors of each dish were spectacular. One of the best in-hotel restaurants we've ever been to.

We were quickly seated as it was almost empty, everything seemed fine until our waitress turned up. We asked if the buffet was on and she just said 'no', no explanation, I then asked if they had a highchair for... More

Located inside the Sheraton Sand Key Resort. They have a Continental Breakfast Buffet (which includes meats and cheeses) and a regular Breakfast Buffet (very good selections) that includes freshly squeezed O.J. They serve Starbucks brand coffee. Also, there is a good variety on the menu (the oatmeal was enough for AT LEAST 2 people). Roberta is the best server for... More
