we didn't realize the prize was kind of steep here since we were new to the area. Dinner buffet was great with seafood and steak and various other food. Dinner buffet is $40 a plate.

Was a nice place with a view to eat at for Mother's Day - without waiting in long lines. Food was good - a little pricey but that is to be expected at a tourist place.

My hubby did the all you can eat buffet and I ordered off of the menu. I had the chef's special for the day which was a glazed salmon that was fantastic. The all you can eat was amazing variety of fresh food. Not your typical "buffet". Crab legs, prime rib, made to order pasta, etc. Not to mention the... More

Green salad, mac&cheese, fried chicken,... More

Thank you for your comments and I do take your concerns seriously. I appreciate the fact that you did try our buffet. I am equally pleased that at 9pm, when we normally stop seating for the buffet, your experience was equal to that of someone for may have arrived at 5pm when the doors first opened. Our Prime Rib is... More

Nice and fancy for a great night out. The buffet is very up scale food. Crab, Scallops with pasta, shrimp. The buffet has soup, salad and all the other fixings for a great dinner. Not bad for price for what they served. Desserts were to die for.

I know. Another buffet in a beach town. I have been coming here for 30 years and am amazed that the food is so consistently good. Yes, you will probably get a fresher raw bar elsewhere, but the oysters and clams are all you can eat and sufficiently fresh. The crab legs are served hot and cold and are always... More

Over the years we've tried the other seafood buffets in Ocean City. We were usually disappointed. Not so with Horizons Oceanfront Restaurant in the Clarion Fontainebleau Hotel. Delicious food. Crab legs keep on coming. The food is hot, the butter for dipping is warm. Everything was good. A bit pricy, but worth it.

Great breakfast buffet at a reasonable price. Omelets made to order by a cook who not only made four omelets at a time but also made waffles and sliced ham, you could tell he really enjoyed his job! Food was very good, I'm not a big fan of buffets but this one was well worth it.

Thank you for the review of our Deluxe Breakfast Buffet. Geoff is really amazing when he is out there making omelets, waffles and talking to everyone who comes up. I think a lot of his skill comes naturally. Geoff took his Dad's place as our omelet chef after may years of watching and learning. When you learn from the best,... More
