Very overpriced, horrible food with very little selection (OC and hardly any seafood??) The famous chicken was either very dry or so greasy it was disgusting and we had pieces that weren't even cooked through. Very disappointed.

It's a nice little buffet restaurant, conveniently located a block from the ocean. When I went there, they charged 1.99 for children 5 and under, but last time I drove by, I see they've changed it to free. The buffet is typical. Clams, ribs, chicken, etc. and a small dessert bar off to the side.

Dont listen to the crabby people. Went there with hardly anybody there and the food was still hot fresh and good. Everything was great even the staff serving the food. They were very attentive and friendly. I don't know what everybody is complaining about I almost didn't go because of them. But darn glad I didn't listen. Chicken is to... More

This place is old, dirty, and is staffed by young kids who would rather you go elsewhere. It’s $10.95 for the breakfast buffet plus an additional $2.69 for a drink plus tax– total was $14.53 per person – grossly overpriced for what we got. One good thing, they have their own parking lot. We were shown to a table that... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for a "cheap" buffet , not wanting to spend 70 bucks for two people we stumbled across this place. The staff is wonderful, very friendly and talkative. I believe we meant the owner outside on our way in, he insured us that they had the best fried chicken ever, he was right. I like... More
