Good buffet spread

We went here since I have never had crab legs. This was a good place to go as they had a buffet with a lot of crab legs and I didn't like them, I could choose from many other options. They had a lot of seafood including Shrimp, mussels, clams and fish. They also had a carving station, salad... read more

The "interactive dining" description is this: It's a buffet. No other choice, no menu. Basically the food on the buffet was not hot. Prime rib, steak, salmon etc. The crab legs were hot, but had apparently been sitting in the hot water because you could not crack the shells, they bent because they were soft and full of water. There... More

Consider the Ocean Flame a great destination for special occasions. The buffet has a tremendous variety of nicely prepared appetizers, entrees, salads and desserts so that all members of a group can be satisfied. It is particularly fun to sit outside at sunset, weather permitting. Nicely separated from the outdoor tiki bar, you can still enjoy their entertainment and the... More

There was crab legs, prime rib, sushi, salads and the desert bar....AHHHHHH!! It was 32.95 however it is definitely worth it. If you are ever... More

I called before Christmas to ask if they were having a New Years Day brunch. I was told that they were. I promptly made reservations for the seafood buffet. I even asked if they would be having prime rib. Again I was told yes. I informed them that this was my husband's and my first New Years as a married... More

Met friends here fir Christmas Day lunch, none of us had been before but it looked nice online. It turned out to be a fantastic place. We had a great table outside overlooking the water, the buffet was excellent (far too much food and choice to sample everything) and the staff were very attentive and friendly even though it was...
