Really a Good Buffet

I really enjoyed this buffet. It has a variety of items including crab legs, sushi, Asian, fresh fruits, salad and desserts. The crab legs were good. I had some great Asian type green beans which had wonderful flavor, fresh fruit and I wish I had more room but was not super hungry but still... read more

Even though their quality was never as good as a higher priced place on the causeway they were customer oriented. Always willing to steam my oysters But they changed policy without warning and will no longer accomadate. Spend a little more at the other place.....you'll be glad you did!!

We were disappointed last year when this restaurant was closed for remodeling but it is even better. The selection of food was amazing and the meat and oysters alone were worth the money. Save room for Derry or do what I did have a little between trips to line. They are in small serving dishes so you don't get too... More

They completely remodeled and it looks great. It looks more upscale. The food was great as usual. Just wish they had more on the buffet for the kids.

A few weeks ago, my husband and I went to dinner at the Ocean View buffet. We’d been there last year and were very happy. This trip was less satisfying. To start, we were sat next to the bar even though it was a slow week night and the rest of the restaurant had plenty of open tables. The bartender... More

I'll start with what I disliked. The fact that I could not lay down a sleeping bag and take a nap before waking up to taking another trip through the buffet. The Shepherd's Ocean Flame buffet is $32.95 for an all-you-can-eat adventure that is way above the typical buffet fare. You can find 10% off coupons at the Clearwater visitor's... More

My boyfriend and I visited this seafood buffet located on the ground floor of Shephard's Beach Resort in busy Clearwater on a recent Friday evening. Clearwater is long on traffic and short on parking, but this restaurant offers free valet parking (pay $15 upfront, refunded upon retrieving car). We were seated quickly with no wait, though it definitely took about... More

My friend and I recently had breakfast here. We were looking for a place that served mimosas. We had a lovely view of the water from our table, but this was ruined by all of the seagulls that were constantly swarming overhead. The staff continuously chased them, but it was still very distracting. There are wires to keep the birds... More
