The crab leggs are great, the size, quality and manner in which they were preapare are among the best we have ever had, and we have had a lot. The rest of the bar is very marginal, the sides/vegetables seems to straight out of a pre packaged can/container. So if you hace to have crab leggs and are willing to... More

heard about this restaraunt and decided to try it, was hesitant on the $32 for an adult buffet but we were on vacation so why not. the crab legs were hot and fresh, they also had baked cod and polluck, stuffed grouper and fresh peeled shrimp. all of which was delicious. i will absolutely be back next trip

The food was not good, the crabs were the only decent food on the buffet. Although the crabs were meaty, you could tell they were not kept in the salt water but rather seemed heated in tap water. Without the butter there was no natural taste. We go to seafood buffets all the time and this one was in Panama... More

Wanted a buffet to eat our fill of crab legs. Was the only buffet we could find. Not a huge choice of different seafoods but did enjoy. Crab legs were actually better than expected. Husband said the scallops were really good too. We go to buffets like this for the seafood so can not comment on salad or dessert bar.

Our waiter didn't even show up to our table to take our drink order for 20 minutes. I asked another waiter to help us and he did. The original waiter came up and started giving us a multitude of excuses of why he didn't help us. Whatever buddy...you got one job at a buffet - bring plates and drinks.

We come here every year on our visit just for the crab legs. They do a great job keeping the buffet stocked with crab legs. Our waitress never let our glasses get empty. The restaurant was busy on the Saturday night we ate there but we never had a wait at the buffet or for service. They have a wonderful... More

If you love crab legs then this is your place. My husband usually want to hit this restaurant the same day we arrive in Panama City Beach.

32.95 a person to eat and there's not much of a selection. I'm ok with the price but there should be your money's worth on the buffet selection. The desserts were horrible. When we were seated it took a good 10 minutes for someone to take our drink order. This is not the place.
