We haven't eaten at Shephard's in ages and it was always decent. Today we went back (had a gift certificate) for Sunday brunch and was VERY pleasantly surprised. The selection on their Sunday Brunch Buffet is outstanding. Fresh and well presented appetizers from Sushi and oysters on the half shell to crab clusters and shrimp. Salads were well presented and...

We eat here every time we come to Florida. It is a treat we look forward to. They always have a variety of dishes to enjoy with a gormet twist to them. We usually go for the crab legs and oysters. Although there was still a great variety to choose from I found a lot of the selections to be... More

Food quantity is plenty but if you care for quality food, avoid this place. Typical asian buffet food quality for hotel prices.

Ocean Flame "Interactive Dining" on the waterfront sounded like a great experience. I read the reviews first and they were so-so but we decided to try it. We are locals, not tourists. Well, this review is so-so also. This buffet reminded me of a Clearwater Beach attempt to replicate the buffet at the Bellagio and other Las Vegas buffets which... More

Recently redone inside, the all buffet restaurant looked amazing. We weren't quite ready for a meal but we had some drinks and listened to the live band on the back Tiki Bar. Awesome views!

firstly our waiter Ron was great, so no issues there. There where plenty of food choices, mixed bag as far as quality was concerned. But at the end of the day it is buffet food, and as such it wasn't bad. Would I go again, yes I would

The food was excellent and our dinner was outside on the bay. On the way from the airport our driver suggested that we try this place since our conference wasn't beginning until the morning and we had the evening to enjoy. However while asking directions from the Bell Staff at the hotel we were strongly advised against this fine restaurant,... More
