Place had a lot to chose from. You will not leave hungry. Good service. Food was good. Crab legs and steak were my choice. Kids loved the soft ice cream. Not bad for an all u can eat style place.

We were in Florida for a week staying at hotels near Orlando and in Disney World park. Shephard's Beach Resort was out last stop, and the Ocean Flame restaurant was by far the best food we had all week! The breakfast was awesome - everything was fresh and very tasty. Very obvious that no food had been left sitting in... More

They have a very nice Sunday brunch, only on Sundays. This place was jumping. Piles and piles of food. Good food but not great food as it sat in piles...snow crabs, shrimp, oysters were good. Prime rib was under cooked but ok. Lots of salads and desserts. Mimosas included as well as coffee. Omelets were an option too. Price was... More

I love this place! I have eaten here about 4 times. Its an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet. Crab legs are great. There is plenty of other food for non seafood lovers. Wonderful selection of desserts. A bit pricey, but worth it to me just for the all you can eat crab legs!

My husband took me there for my birthday because he heard that this place have good food. The WORST birthday of my life. The food was cold and awful. Bugs were on the dessert. I told the worker and showed her. She took the dessert off that dish and move them to another dish and placed it back on the... More

Valet parking- a big plus! Plenty of options for even pickiest of eaters. I'm a new seafood eater so this place enabled me to try a wide variety- snapper, grouper, salmon, swordfish- lots of shellfish options too, which others in my group enjoyed. We were there for sunset and really enjoyed the view. There was also live music - another... More

It's difficult to find a nice place for a Sunday brunch buffet, but this restaurant has one of the best I've ever been to. They have just about anything on the buffet you could possibly want. From your classic breakfast items, to seafood, a carving station, salads, omelet station, mimosas, a huge dessert section including and ice cream bar, and... More
