Great dinner and amazing service

I have been traveling to the Clarion for many years, at least, six years. I enjoy the breakfast buffet, especially after a good night partying there, and the selection on the buffet is awesome! Enjoying breakfast, having great service and the view of the ocean is priceless!

I had crab soup that was mushy vegetables and strands of white stuff. Was this the crab? The pasta was excessive and tasteless, the shrimp small in number, size and overcooked plus mushy vegetables again. My guest did a little better.

I would say some of the best food in Ocean City… Never had a bad meal and being a local that's something I can't say about many other places… Outstanding food and outstanding value…

My wife and I had dinner at the bar in the horizons restaurant on march 21. The food was excellent but the best part of the nite was the outstanding service and attention by the bartender/server, Ellen Popp. There was a big crowd at the bar, but she made sure everyone got served and maintained a wonderful attitude during the...

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.

I'm sincerely sorry that you were disappointed with one of our buffets. As you stated, our buffets and restaurant have won several recent awards, so we maintain high standards. I see that you traveled in August of last year; because it was 7 or more months ago, there's no way for me to address any issues that may have been... More

We have been going to this Restaurant for the last ten years. It is a sure thing. The food is reliably good ... excellent steaks, seafood and even the things on the inexpensive daily specials are beautifully and thoughtfully prepared. The vegetable medley is not the usual soggy mess but a flavorful selection of fresh veg. FInally, the desserts are... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We make it a point to buy locally whenever we can. Eastern Shore cuisine is best when everything comes from our backyard, or the ocean in front of us. We are fortunate to have our restaurant chef trained at the CIA in Hyde Park. Our service staff is a pleasure... More

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...
