Place looks great and the decor is appropriate. Did not give you prices until seated. Buffet was 31.95. Large selection but food was mushy since it was served from buffet pans. I would not recommend this.

This restaurant was very good. The food was excellent and the service was average. Great selection on the buffet. A little high on the price. Location was in walking distance from the beach. I would recommend this to a friend.

Only went there because they said they had steamed peel and eat shrimp. It was absolutely swimming in peanut oil. Could have changed the oil in your truck with it. And was garnished with some sort of green seasoning. Was cold, and no shrimp flavor whatsoever. The chicken was battered with what seemed like cornflakes, and very hard, with a... More

Great selections and very good! Location can be a little tricky on parking with it being next door to the amusement park. Staff could be a little bit friendlier...they weren't rude but not the friendliest around either.

I thought this place was expensive. Most everything was fried. While the seafood was pretty good, there needed to be more variety in sides.

The food looked ok but god was it tasteless... Don't let the 170 items full you. Most of the fish was overcooked, crab legs included. I end up eating everything else but seafood since it really didn't catch my eye at all. The place is ok to the minimum and for the price, it was really not worth it.

First of all, I would like to get this out of the way: the taste of the food was not /that/ bad. However, it was not good enough for $22.99/per person (w/ early bird "discount") My fiance and I were greeted by a fast-speaking Russian that failed to tell us that any drink other than water is an extra $2.50......

We ordered off the menu instead of paying $27 for adult's buffet even though I know I woulda ate that much but what we got off the menu was enough for us all plus we had leftovers for lunch the following day. It was a nice restaurant with nice servers. Looking forward to going back there next year.

The food was awesome and the restaurant itself is great. It's shaped like a huge ship and there is a pirate out front that gives a show to the ppl waiting in like. You should probably go before 5pm if you don't want a long line. There was plenty of crab legs which I love as well as a mix... More

I should have listened to my gut and walked out as soon as I saw the buffet. The price is ~$30 per person, all you can eat, with tax + tip. The problem is, after your first plate you don't exactly want to go back for more. Perhaps it is because we came after the dinner rush (we were here... More
