Had somewhat of await. It was worth it. I love the Hibatchi grill. Last year the steaks were great a little disappointed in them this year but the seafood was good and all you can eat.

Crab legs were bland and over cooked. Everything was breaded and fried or covered with bread crumbs. Being that 3 of 5 are gluten free I was frustrated that there were very few options for us. And there were no toppings for the ice cream.

The only thing I can say is, the frozen drink was the only good thing. Over priced for nasty food. Just steer clear and go elsewhere.

Okay, okay... this is a hard one to rate simply because it falls into the restaurant category which puts it into the same category that ranges from McDonald's to Ruth's Chris, you get the point. It's not a 5 star restaurant BUT it is a 5 star buffet! This place is run like a well oiled machine. They probably feed... More

I loved going here. They had a kids buffet which was perfect for my kids who are not a fan of seafood. The food was really good and fresh. It also wasn't a bad price especially if you have a coupon. Our server was great too. We enjoyed getting a picture as well as a memory of our trip. It... More

For the most part the food was great and there was plenty of it. Some of the items had been cooked a little too long causing it to be tough but you have to expect that at a high volume seafood buffet.

This has been a family favorite for a few years now. I'm a huge seafood lover and my husband doesn't like seafood. But he is a trooper and always takes me. We love the giant crab for their variety in foods. They have a carving station and a hibachi grill and pasta station. Great for those that don't eat seafood.... More

The food and service couldn't have been better. It exceeded our expectations. So many choices and each one of them were extremely good. It's an all you can eat buffet so bring your appetite and wear some loose fitting clothes :)

Absolutely everything seafood on the bar was amazing. Definitely get your money's worth if you like seafood. Still a variety and a kids buffet with chicken nuggets, pizza, etc. Also, had great service hardly ever had a dirty plate on our table and never had an empty glass. Always enjoy coming here on vacation.

Excellent seafood buffet! Well worth the price! There was a huge variety and all of the food was hot and fresh. Staff extremely friendly and it was clean and well run. I have two teenage boys age 17 & 19 as well as a 15 year old daughter, myself and husband. Everyone found something they enjoyed and we were all... More
