This was the buffet we all chose to go to for our last night in Ocean City...it was a tough choice...some of us loved seafood and some of us didn't like it at all. But as a seafood lover I would have to say it was okay! I ate tons of crab legs...lol...but as to the rest, it was confusing... More

My husband, two grandchildren (10 and 11) and I visited this restaurant during our stay in Ocean City. At first I wondered if I would get my money's worth (I believe it was almost 30 dollars for adults; less for 10 and younger), but by the end of the meal I felt it was worth it. My grandson who loves... More

First of all, the hostesses who sat us were extremely snotty. Once we were seated we waited 25 minutes for a waitor to approach us. We got our drinks and approached the buffet. There was no selection whatsoever! The "pasta bar" was pathetic. I got Alfredo with shrimp and it was disgusting. I couldn't find anything that looked the least... More

Wide variety on the buffet. Awesome raw bar with killer oysters. Crab legs were the best ever. Dessert was super good. Waitress was really nice and kept our table cleared the whole time. I'll go back.

The crab cakes were good as were the vegetables served. The dressings for the salads were too warm. This caused the salads to have a off taste. I would recommend this place if you enjoy seafoods.

Our family of four eate here in June 2014 and it was the worst food with the exception of the raw bar and crab legs. I would not touch anything else as it is dried up or digusting looking. Over priced and with 15% gratuity automatically added was the final insult. Staff were friendly but unprofessional. With all the restauants... More

We went after a terrible experience the evening before at another well known restaurant. I had called ahead to see if they were "kid" friendly and was told that they were absolutely kid friendly! We arrived and was seated promptly. We had a great server who made small talk with the entire group. We were traveling with 4 adults and... More
