Had high hopes when we walked in. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess who sat us immediately. It took a turn for the worst when we got to our table. It took our waiter 10 minutes to get our drink order when he returned he brought us the wrong thing. The food was disgusting. It was either undercooked... More

We visited this restaurant while on vacation. Crab legs, oysters on the half shell, and prime rib are included. Waitress kept plates cleared and drinks refilled. $5 off adult buffet before 5 pm. Will definitely return. Crab legs,prime rib, oysters and coconut shrimp were wonderful.

The rest of the food was over cooked dry and flavorless. The prime rib was... More

Restaurant opened at 3 pm. We arrived at 330. We received $5 off before 5 pm discount. All you can eat buffet was 21.99 with discount. Very reasonable compared to other seafood. Most food was goood, crab legs was awesome. The waitress Olga was very friendly and get service.

My family and I had eaten here before and have always enjoyed it...the new owners have really outdone themselves with quality and service and the price beats ALL buffets by at least $5

Very dark, hard to see items on buffet, very few cars in parking lot, that should have warned me but I was hungry, had a coupon for discount that I had picked up that very day at the visitor center but they would not accept it, overall just a bad experience...keep looking for something better! Tourist trap! Tourist crap!...we all... More
