It is ok

This was actually in July of 2013. It was ok. It seemed there were a lot of people eating there, so we thought it would be good. No, It was ok just to get your fill of food. Otherwise...I do not reccomend. The food was just alright. My son is picky and he barely ate anything at all. My... read more

What a pleasurable dinner we had this weekend at Jonah & the Whale Restaurant! We were nervous about not having a reservation since there were 16 of us but we were accommodated with seats quickly. The buffet was PHENOMINAL!!! We had every age group from small children to elderly adults and there was something for everyone. The kids loved the... More

I would have rather spent the money on a bunch of Hungry Man dinners. At least I would have enjoyed them and for the money we spent, I could have filled my freezer for the next month. It is pretty bad when you walk out of a restaurant and the best tasting item was a toss up between the beverage... More

Save Your $!!!.... Horrible food and when we told the manager we couldn't eat the over cooked food that tasted like it had been sitting there for days he refused to do anything about it and we ended up paying $156 for a family of 4. The worst restaurant I've been to in a very long time. Dough Rollers in... More

Went for a day trip just to get the kids out of the house & it was a pretty good trip until we ate at this restaurant. It is way over priced for what you get. They have a below average salad bar, watery soup, small selection of foods on the buffet & stale desserts! The only two good things... More

This was the first place we went to eat after getting into town. Neither of us really had a preference for what kind of food we wanted and we're just tired after the drive, so a buffet seemed perfect... Unfortunately, we must have picked the worst buffet in town. The food was barely edible, our server didn't know what we... More

This place is the best buffet style dinner in Ocean City. The lone gets LONG so come early and hungry. There are shrimp and Crab Legs on the buffet wich is the main reason we go. Very nice, clean place. Make sure you make yourself a sundae for dessert at their ice cream machine and toppings bar.

The seafood tasted frozen. All the fish was overcooked and dry. The salmon was ghostly white. The rolls undercooked

The service was the only thing acceptable. All the food was cold and dry. The salad bar was in a hall way. The atmosphere was dingy and gloomy. The fresh raw bar was very nice. The so called ham and prime rib was not cooked and it wasn't even under a heat lamp.It was in a plastic container and cold.... More
