By far one of the nicest, largest and freshest salad bars available in the area in addition to a wonderful menu. The food was delicious and the service was great.

Walked in to literally a mob scene off older people waiting endlessly for what looked like an enormous seventies style salad bar. Looks like has last been updated in 1960. No thanks

Everyone brags about the big salad bar, but I have seen better. My steak was delicious, but our waitress was terrible! Never came to check on us and offer refills on our drinks. We had to ask the person that brought our food to get us refills!!! Needless to say, we won't be going back!!!

The food was terrific. The salad bar is almost impossible to beat. The dinner rolls are served hot with real butter. They are delicious. The steaks and main entrees were fantastic. Now, the service, well, our server was Jen. Mediocre at best. There is a great server named Billy and a lady from either Great Britain or Australia and she... More

This restaurant is expensive, but worth the money. Has a 52 item salad bar that comes with your dinner. This place is a must that we make a point to eat at every year. Highly recommend. From Prime Rib Beef to Seafood, you can't go wrong.

This place reminded me of a 1960's basement with taller ceilings, larger windows and better views. This is basic food, done well. The salad bar has a lot of choices for those who like to build their own. My grouper was well cooked. If you are looking for inventive fare or beachy/marina views, there are many better choices.

Ordered a Prime Rib entree and was still able to take advantage of the salad bar. Lots of tables, but the early bird fills up fast with people lining up before the doors open. Might be tough to get in for the early bird, but after 6pm worked out for us.

Every time I visit Ft Myrs Beach I eat dinner here. It's very good. The salad bar is to die for, you could eat off that as your entire meal and it would be plenty. Everything yOu can think of is a available This place gets so busy you either have to go right at 5 or wait until after... More
