If all you want is crab legs you are in for a treat and it will be worth the money. For the rest of us this may not be a good deal. I asked for meat off the carving station and by time I got to my table it was cold. I went back up and asked for more but... More

the buffet choices were plenty, very clean, a bit pricy but worth it. I thought the quality of their desserts could be better the best tasting dessert was the key lime pie the rest all tasted like shortening.

I should have known when we into this place when all I saw was folks over the age of 70 eating. This was not a good buffet. Items that should be cold were warm and hardly on ice while warm items were room temperature warm. I honestly ate more dessert than anything and that was just to fill up because... More

Let me start by saying I have never written a review before. On a positive the crab legs were good, that's it. They advertise sushi, really, two quarter size poorly rolled rolls, and one dried up piece of sashimi tuna? ? Than, I go back to get soy sauce, and I am told our server will get it, but nothing...

It is all-new, modern, & a clean look. You can eat indoors or outdoors (on the Clearwater Pass which allows boats to go from the Intracoastal Waterway into the Gulf of Mexico). So this is one of the biggest, most nicely presented buffets I've seen. So much seafood, both on raw stations & cooked. I liked the Shrimp Vindaloo &... More

We decided to visit Shepards because we hadn't been there since maybe a few years ago when we used to live in Tampa. To our surprise, they've remodeled the place and it's very modern and chic! We walked in and were seated immediately, which was great because we were starving! The bar tender was extremely attentive and kept our drink... More

Was rather suspicious when we got there... looks as if you just entered resort restaurant for all inclusive. Large buffet with basic decor. Went with 5 small kids but turned out to be perfect. They loved it - the choices were fantastic and actually very good food - even the adults enjoyed the quality. Seafood, international, great deserts.... hit with... More

Be very wary of this "all you can eat" buffet. $33.00 per person, plus tax and plus and an automatic 10% gratuity. Food is overrated, some of eat a day or two old and none of the food prep help wear gloves. Only water provided, no coffee or tea included. Not a good bargain for what they offer and the... More
