We love all you can eat when we go to the Ocean. This was our first time to Ocean City we usually go to Virginia Beach so we were unfamiliar where to go we went here on a recommendation. The staff here is very good but the bar was not the best. The crab legs were a bit watered down.... More

We came to the Bonfire at the suggestion of hotel staff. While they had a lot of options, some of the food was lacking and some luke warm. The fried clams were chewy and rubbery. Dessert station (ice cream area) could have used topping for the ice cream like sprinkles or nuts. The raw bar was very good, except that... More

Every year, we come to OC and pick one night to splurge on a nice meal. After reading reviews decided on The Bonfire. We were extremely disappointed!! After spending $120 for 2 adults and 2 kids to eat, we expected a lot more. Some food couldn't be very hot for we would get it back to the table and it... More

The Bonfire is one of the nicest AYCE buffets in town that we've found so far. They have a wide variety of foods - seafood, of course, but also other meats, pasta, etc. The price tag is mainly because of the snow crab legs, which are really the star of most AYCE buffets in town. Still, their other food is... More

We couldn't decide where to go for our 46th Anniversary dinner, but this decision was wonderful. The dinner buffet had everything you could wish for, seafood, beef, Italian, and more. Even a dessert bar. The server we had was very attentive and pleasant, taking dishes away every time we finished our plate! She also refilled our ice tea constantly! The... More

Another place no trip is complete without. The Bonfire is a tradition in this family just love those crab legs and everything else there is so much to pick from. Take your time and enjoy it all. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait particularly in season.

My hubby & 4 of our children had dinner here on 9/28/14. The buffet was very good with a lot of options. Our waitress was very nice. Overall a good experience. The crab legs & clams made me & the hubby very happy. Our meal before tip was $184.00. My 13 & 15 year old girls were charged as adults... More
