I was told to come here by a worker at another restaurant! We walked there from our hotel. It was during sunset so we sat by the windows facing the water. Fabulous views. The buffet had literally everything! from Crab legs ( no stone though) to guacamole, caviar,oysters Rockefeller & gourmet desserts! Have one bad thing to say which they... More

Lots of choices, including crab legs (snow). No one in town had any Stone Crab legs but this was certainly enough to please any hungry traveler. Come hungry!

The steak was good. The crab legs were good but a little cool. There was a fantastic selection of high price foods ,however most of it was luke warm. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was fantastic either. The whole family agrees that the selection of gourmet desserts was the best part of the meal.

We had Sunday Brunch at Shepard's, which has recently reopened after being closed for several months during renovation. The new ambiance is tasteful and relaxing. I could not find any fault with the abundant selection of salads, flat breads, entrees, sea food, meats and desserts. All fresh and prepared to taste good. Not only has Shepard's ownership improved the ambiance,... More

We are not "Tourist" and we might stop again. We arrived at 5:00PM, and we were impressed when we walked in and noticed the new changes. We liked the layout, and the fact that you didn't have to step down and up to go between the food and your table. Our waiter "Ron" was very nice and took care of... More

This was a nice place to eat. Saved it for our last night in Florida. The buffet was well stocked, had a good variety. Food was fresh, warm food was warm, cold was cold. Eat outside if you can, there are many boats that go by and a band that plays. Reasonably priced.

We had a drink at Shepards today. The service was faster and the atmosphere very nice. Right on the water with a small beach to utilize as well. Had a Mojito and a Double D drink. Pretty good overall. If you have a boat you can land it and walk to the bar. I would go back again for sure

Serves was terrible - waited 15 minutes before we saw a waitress who felt sorry for us because our waiter never came over. The food was not that good, I expected a lot better for the price. There isn't as much selection as a few years ago.. Very disappointed.
