Average dinner but great service

My daughter and I visited and mostly are the seafood portion of he buffet. She enjoyed the crab legs but commented not the same quality of other Clearwater seafood establishments. Sushi was average. We also tried steak and som other dishes. Overpriced for quality. I will say service was excellent.

While this place looks good via website and fliers, it is really just an over priced Golden Corral. They enforce a dress code for some (men must have sleeves) but not for others. I get trying to be a high class place but then maybe train your staff because " yo bro" and " right on bro" is not the... More

The food was delicious, and there was a wide variety. We particularly enjoyed the seafood and prime rib. The staff was attentive and accommodating. We would certainly recommend this buffer.

We went here a couple of years ago and loved it. The buffet was great and such a variety of stuff. My husband and son had the buffet but myself and daughter don't eat seafood so I ordered off the menu and the waitress went out of her way to have the cook make her chicken for us. We went... More

A few years back, I left a negative review for this restaurant. I have recently visited after their renovation and it was really hard to eat anywhere else on the Island. The breakfast buffet was perfect everyday, with scrambled eggs, some type of omelette, sausage, bacon, pancakes, yogurt, cereals, fruit, pastries, and muffins. The service was great also. We sat...

We love going here for dinner and Sunday brunch! They have tons of food and great tasting food too it's not cheap buffet food. However the Saturday breakfast was terrible they had hardly any food and it was a complete waste of our money. Overall a must go for dinner but I would stay away for breakfast unless it's Sunday.

We use to go to shepherds before the remodel and it was. The new ocean flame is a joke they tried to go classy and lost focus on the food. We were there at 5 pm when they open. First trip if food was cold and dried out. I'm Sorry when it first open the food should be nice and... More

Have eaten here in the past and the dining room is a 100% improvement over what was there before. Beautiful views, really nice buffet with many items to pick from, the four of us really enjoyed our meal. Loved the prime rib was a perfect med-rare and the other carved items that offered. All seafood items were very good especially... More
