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.

Service was great at this seafood buffet. All you can eat shrimp, stuffed grouper, crab legs, etc. dessert bar needs help but who comes here for the dessert? Would move the rating up if they improved it though.

Correct, it is pricey. They tell you that before you sit down, so not sure why you are surprised. Not a huge options but when we go we plan on eating the crab legs.

The buffet was not very good. Even the desserts were lackluster. We went for the crab legs, but the evening buffet is $32.95 for each of us! Not worth it!

Went to the seafood buffet but really only enjoyed the crab legs. They were very good. The rest of the buffet did not meet our expectations. Hush puppies were the heaviest I have ever had. Other food was okay but not what was expected for the price.

This place ABSOLUTELY SUCKS!!! Do not eat here if you're looking for 'value' cause at $33 a person (adult) you will NOT get your moneys worth. Other than the crab legs the rest of the food on this REALLY little food bar is not that good and actually did not sit on our stomachs very well. This is definitely a... More

Good food but not as much seafood variety as we hoped to have. Quality of food was good though. The dessert bar was great and had a large variety to choose from.
