Very nice view right on the ocean front.

Location, Location, Location! Service was good. Restaurant is somewhat elevated to give the best view of the ocean. Floor to ceiling windows make it a great view. Food was okay.

By far, this is far from award winning. This was by far the worst looking buffet in my 20 plus years of travel to OC. I walked out.

We have been going to this Restaurant for the last ten years. It is a sure thing.

Check this place out! It has a great buffet and live music. It is a hidden Ocean City jewel. I am planning on going again later in the year as I understand during the summer months, they have an amazing seafood buffet.

Almost perfect; we were shown to our table almost immediately. There were many people in line for the food but it moved along well. There were numerous items on the buffet and I was careful to bypass things like salads, soups, etc because I would need room for the heavier items; roast turkey, roast beef, 3 kinds of stuffing, mashed...

This place is like stepping back in time. The decor may be off putting to some, but I loved it. It was like a 70s night club, but super comfy. It is a very beachy feel.

This review is tough for me. If the ambiance had been as good as the food I would have given Horizons a four star rating. In the end ambiance won out and I am giving it two stars.

It was off season so we had to wait til the weekend to get our favorite buffet! It was worth the wait. Great selection of everything. Seafood was tasty. They even have a made to order pasta station. The prime rib was cooked perfectly. The desert station had a nice variety. Can not wait to go back next vacation.
