The choices were numerous, but as any buffet most of the food was just ok...some good some not so much. The crab legs were good, and there was great variety in the "surf" choices offered.There was steak and prime rib that was not good at all, but I guess that is to be expected at a buffet.

One of the only seafood buffets open in January. Glad we went. Very clean. Friendly staff. Great selection of food. Every crab leg I cracked open came out a big piece of meat. None were water logged! Desserts not the best, but that's ok. It's a seafood place, not DQ. I'd definitely recommend this place.

The buffet was excellent and they kept putting hot fresh food out. All of the seafood was tasty. Didn't notice until I was on my way out that they also had scoop ice cream.

Favorites local steamed oysters, snow crab legs! Fried shrimp, especially bang bang ones were great! Was looking forward to prime rib- it was too rare for me. Little pricey for children that don't eat much. Definitely need to be hungry to get your monies worth.

The crab legs and hush puppies were surprisingly better prepared than Joe's Crab Shack and the service was ok. The green vegetables and roast beef were entirely over cooked. There were not enough healthy options available. The gem, as we left we watched an employee hose off oysters on the ground in the parking lot. Definitely will never eat here... More

The quality of the food was very average and the price for two with tip and one non-alcoholic and one alcoholic beverage was pretty high (about $42 each). The variety was also average. The service was good even though they were understaffed. We are from New England and perhaps our expectations are a bit different but for the money we... More

We ate here on previous trip and this was the best seafood buffet we have ever ate at. Parking lot was always full so I'm sure others will agree. Large selection of different foods with plenty to go around

Very reasonably priced after the 5$ coupon in book at door. Only 23$. Open in off season too. Within walking distance of our hotel. Crab legs were good and kept fresh. Will eat again.
