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

The food was delicious, the service was on point and friendly, the layout was beautiful, the decor was great and the selection was wonderful. I was happy to be having my New Year's Eve dinner at the Ocean Flame.

Well lets see. $35.00 pp Holiday price. Nothing to write home about. Food was typical buffet style selections. Prime rib was way to fatty. Other craved meats were warm at best. I was hoping for a better selection of seafood, unfortunately only peel/eat shrimp, osters on half shell, baked white fish, fried something and shrimp cracker spread. Nothing special for... More

Went here for dinner with the wife, figured I would try out the buffet. Nothing worth bragging about, they seem to be out of food quite a bit. Quality of the food is buffet quality. It's ok, a bit on the expensive side not worth the 32.95 per person.

We also ate at Shephards on Christmas so I know what the earlier reviewer is talking about. Our server was good and the view was nice. But the table and floor around us was dirty, they did not seem to be managing the number of people who showed up to eat, so therefore the food continually ran out, and the... More

They have valet parking; but, we knew we wanted 2 spend the remainder of the day on the beach & sometimes, it's really hard 2 find any available parking. We had a... More

I really hate writing bad reviews - but this buffet was so bad, I had to. Negatives: food tasted bland, cold and horrible. Mashed potatoes were hard and tasteless, a lot of the food was gone or cold. Do they not taste their food before putting it out? We saw our waiter one time. I had to ask another waiter... More
