Excellent buffet for seafood lovers. Unlimited crab legs and almost every other type of seafood. The foods was hot, tasty and perfectly seasoned. The service was great and we were promptly, which is rare with a larger party (there were six of us). A bit pricey, but worth it.

In overall the food is ok but the appearance of the buffet is not nice at all - floors are dirty, the pasta station does not look nice, the Japanese sashimi area is not appealing, there was some liquid under the Mac and cheese. The crab legs and crab cakes were excellent. We found this buffet pricey for the conditions... More

With over 170 items on the buffet, you're sure to find lots of things to enjoy. There is seafood (and lots of it) as well as steak and other meat. Plenty of veggies and salad bar offerings. Many different deserts, but be sure to look on the top shelf so as not to miss anything! The staff is very friendly... More

We looked on their website and saw where if you are seated during a certain time of day you either get a 5 dollars off per adult buffet, or 4, or 3. We came between 2:30 and 3:30pm which gave us a 5 dollars off per buffet so we ended up paying 24.95 per meal. It was sooo worth it... More

we have been going to this restaurant for at least 10 years and everything gets better each year. The price has gone up and quality of food has don't the same. We always go to early bird so that we can use a coupon for $5 off which is great. The service is great also. I would recommend it to... More

Very large and crowded. All the food tasted the same,and there was so much salt in the food that I couldn't eat a lot of it . The crab itself was good, but way over priced. At $ 29.95 a person. For a family of four plus drinks our bill was at around $130.00 plus the tip. So plan on... More

over 170 items on this seafood buffet but not all of it is yummy. Crab legs galore but not easy to eat. Way overpriced.

Our family chose to eat at the Giant Crab this year and although pricey ($29.99) it was well worth the money. Huge variety of foods including a Hibatchi bar and Prime Rib carving station. Families get a free wallet-size photo taken as you walk in and my husband liked that his beer glass was washed and wrapped in newspaper for... More

At this resturant they snap your photo on the way in and offer you a tiny thumbnail for free or a 5x7 for $10 on the way out, which you can find after following 3 signs that lead through the gift shop. They also brag up their fish with teeth in a tank at the door. Aside from these two... More
