I was very hopeful when visiting this place. The presentation of the buffet items looked great and made my mouth water. Unfortunately, the taste of everything from the crab legs and fish to the sushi and salad was very bland. For most of the items, were I to eat with my eyes closed, I would have no idea what I...

We eat at the Tiki Bar. They don't play any beach or reggae music at all but they have a great stage. Do not go on the weekend it was rap and hood rat night. Great place to sit on the water and drink a few.

We eat here every year and this visit is my last. The crab legs were mushy, prime rib had no flavor, not enough veggies, and the food servers are rude! They might have done improvements but I have yet to see them. I think it is worse and the price, $30, was too much! Very embarrassed to have taken my... More

This was our first time at Shepard's, the selection was good and had many different types of food. The crab legs were actually good. I'm from Maryland so we are particular about our crab legs. Overall a decent buffet.

Shepard's restaurant used to be one of our favorite restaurants and we were so excited when they finally reopened. They did a wonderful job on the remodel. The place looks beautiful. However, they ruined the buffet. First, they raised the price to $32.99. I would be fine with the price increase, but the food included in the buffet is not... More
