Have been attending winter-time conferences for over a decade now in OCMD. Usually staying at the Clarion or Marigot. For the first few years we ventured out to area restaurants with mostly favorable results. About four years ago circumstances persuaded us to remain at the Clarion and eat at their Horizons restaurant. Serendipity! Great food, expansive ocean-facing window, efficient staff,... More

Had a wonderful breakfast buffet here. Made to order omelets, lots of great other choices. Food had an awesome flavor, not like some buffets where everything tastes like cafeteria food. Would LOVE to try the seafood buffet here.

The breakfast food here looked and tasted good. We ate both weekend days on our trip. Having a fresh veggie omelet gave me a great start to the day. Our waitresses were very friendly and helpful. Get a window seat because the restaurant overlooks the ocean. Would definitely eat here again.

This restaurant had superb service and excellent food. The décor reminded me of Hawaii. Viewing the ocean while dining was awesome. I had meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My western omelet breakfast was great. The lunch sized grouper salad was filling and just enough food. Everything I ate was delicious. Staff members I had contact with were personable and... More

Thank you for the review. Our breakfast buffets, especially the Deluxe one on Sunday is very popular. It is offered year round. The omelet station provides you with made-to-order omelets, with an assortment of fillers. Always a popular attraction. I wish we could take credit for the view. It is spectacular. Our dinner buffet and dining menus are equally impressive... More

It was a very quiet day and we were the only ones in the place. We had our choice of any ocean view seat. Very limited wine list, but fabulous crab dip. I know these quiet days will be a thing of the past over the next few weeks!

Thank you for your comments. You are definitely right, the quiet days will be non existent very soon. I am happy to hear you were able to enjoy the time you had at the beach. For most of us locals, this really is the best time of year. And to top off the day with our creamy crab dip is... More

I left a detailed review on the Clarion site. But here we go. The raw clams and oysters were so fresh and the crab legs were delicious! They gave us a butter warmer to keep our butter hot. I wish I could blink my eyes and be back there.
