We enjoyed the buffet. It was very good picking choice with lots of different seafood options. Make sure you are hungry when you go to make it worth the price you will pay.

Huge buffet, seafood and meats both where excellent!! Don't forget about the dessert bar. Call for reservations, we waited 20mins at 4:30 in the offseason but it was definitely worth it.

The good: Staff was great. The hostesses and waitstaff were very attentive and accommodating. Staff was constantly cleaning, no table or buffet station was left dirty. The crab legs were great as was the crab dip. Cons: Price; in my opinion it's too costly for the size of the buffet. There are larger set ups for similar pricing. Salad options... More

We went to The Bonfire for dinner with our two girls while on vacation this past summer. What a meal! Endless options for seafood lovers and for picky eaters too (like our 8year olds). We even got the girls to try shrimp for the first time and they loved it. They had all-you-can-eat Alaskan King Crab legs which sent my... More

We've been coming to Bonfire for years and it is NEVER disappointing. They have the best buffet in town, hands down. I love the Alaskan crab legs and prime rib!!

We were very pleased with the variety of foods available-and the quality of the food was very good. There were foods for every tastebud! I was a little disappointed in the desserts, as they didn't look as appetizing, but overall a good bang for your buck!

My grandson had never been to the ocean before (4 1/2 yrs old) and we wanted to take him and our daughter. We all love seafood. While at our motel in the swimming pool someone suggested to our daughter that The Bonfire was really good so we thought we would give it a try. We found a coupon in the... More
