Closed for business at this location. Now there is a Lighthouse buffet in it's place, but no crab on the buffet.

Our group was seated outside near the water with a great view watching private boats come and go and people walking along boardwalk. Food was good but pricy. The menu had a good variety of choices to pick from and not just crab. They also had a playground for the kids to play on before and after dinner.

good food---a little over-priced. there with a party of six. gratuity was added to the tab--what's funny is that we would have tipped a lot higher, but they went ahead and added the tip. so hey-hey-----the wait person lost out! food was okay--nothing outstanding.
