Very good food, just a little expensive

The food is very good and it is an all you can eat buffet. The price was a little high at $31.95 plus beverages. The wait staff dresses in all black, so my first thought was that we were under dressed, but then realized all of the customers were in their normal beach attire.

The staff was very attentive and kept the table free of shredded crab leg parts. Never had to ask for our drinks to be replenished. The food on the bar was always being restocked with hot and fresh food. There was no sense of a rush. As a non sea food person I was able to find things on the... More

I have been to many of the locations that they have and as always they are the best seafood buffets I've ever been to. Awesome places, very elegant and classy. Can't wait to come back.

Service was great, she crab soup was tasty, crab legs were a little above average, the rest of the food was just "ok".... It's worth the price if you like/eat a lot of crab legs, otherwise I'd go elsewhere.

This is an all you can eat seafood buffet. The all you can eat crab legs makes it worth the money but the rest of the food on the buffet is not great. There is a lot to choose from. The service was good. The buffet was $30 per person so if you are not going to eat the crab... More

This place is just TOO expensive and over priced for what it is, and really not all the seafood dishes were that great. We enjoyed the crab legs but the rest was average.

Heard a lot of good reviews of this restaurant, but unfortunately was not impressed. I felt the buffet was marginal at best. A lot of selection, but nothing outstanding. The non seafood dishes were not good.....at all! If you order off the menu, be prepared to wait. This throws them into a tizzy. Not sure why, but I do not... More

Food was decent for a buffet as always! Crabs Legs were filled regularly and were overall good, little hard to get out of shell which can be a sign of overcooking, but it defiantly didn't stop me!!! The salad bar was also great.if ur a person that can recognize and appreciate a good salad! The seafood, tuna, mahi mahi, etc,... More

So many seafood buffets are piled high and the food degrades in flavor and texture. This was my first experience of seafood buffets on the Outer Banks and it could not have been better. The kitchen staff would place smaller amounts of seafood out and as it ran low they would quickly refill that station; they were friendly and did... More

The seafood buffet was excellent with a wide variety of plentiful selections. There was something for everyone, with non-seafood dishes as well. The service was very good too.
