My husband and I were both pretty happy with the buffet. We felt that it was a pretty decent quality for the price, and loved the prime rib. Not sure if it was the normal spread or special for New Year's Day. Service was decent and most of the good was good but the hot items could have been a... read more

My wife and I love to go to Ocean City, MD, in the off season. We've discovered lots of nice places to eat (even when most are closed for the winter), but we had not considered Horizons in the Clarion Hotel. Recently, however, because it was a Sunday, we decided to opt for their Sunday brunch buffet. It was wonderful.... More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We offered our Prime Rib, Crab Leg & Seafood Buffet on New year's Day. It is available nigtly during our summer season. We only use Certified Angus beef, and all our seafood is fresh. It is a challange keeping all of our buffet items kitchen hot for 5 hours. I always suggest you let... More

I went there for Christmas Eve buffet. It was set up quite nicely, but the food would have been sooo much better if it was a few degrees warmer. Average over all, nothing better.

This was one of the few restaurants open for Christmas dinner in Ocean City this past week. We've eaten Christmas buffet dinner here before so we tried it again and were generally pleased. Ham, beef and turkey were on the carving station and a dilled salmon was on the "line"; these were the only meats. The turkey was on the... More

We came here for Christmas brunch buffet. Not too much of a selection to be honest. The taste of the food was alright. I would have thought more fish options would have been offered considering we are on the coast. Anyway, view and service are good but I wouldn't necessarily return here. Just okay.

I ate here one night during my stay in the fall. The service was warm and efficient, and the food was quite tasty. In good weather/summer, you would have lovely views of the ocean. The soups, salads and entrees my party ordered were all great, and they were priced reasonably. If you stay here, don't hesitate to try this restaurant.

The breakfast buffet is the best buy in O.C. The seafood buffet has the biggest snow crab legs in O.C. Trust me I have had them all. Service is always excellent.
