Breakfast Experience from Hell

During our stay at the Sandcastle, we were given the "privilege" of dining at Galley Restaurant for breakfast. Everyday of our stay presented a new issue at the restaurant. The first day, the omlette station line was almost out of the door. I think they need to add additional help in that station... read more

The food was up to par and good. The wait staff was very nice and helpful. The cost was to be exspected because of its location.

The "seafood buffet" was very limited, and our waiter tried to cop a $30 tip by not bringing our change

Good breakfat buffet They DO NOT use that precooked/packaged (bacon, pancakes, french toast) junk that your beginning to see at other buffets. The waitresses are friendly and efficient. It's nice to be greeted by the owner/manager too. They get an "A" for cleanliness.

This was my first trip to VA Beach and I wasn't sure what to try. It was around 9pm, Pier 14 was close to our hotel and we didn't feel like walking further so we stopped in. Glanced at the dinner buffet and decided to just do it. The buffet was $17.95. Most of the items I tried (tough popcorn... More

After a google search for the best breakfast buffet at the beach, I saw good reviews for the Galley. It was only a short walk so we decided to give it a try. What a mistake! The Galley has changed ownership and is now Pier 14. The buffet at first glance looked ok and we didn't feel like going elsewhere... More

They automatically added 18 percent gratuity to our bill, which was $22.00. There was 6 of us (2 families) but we said they could put it all on one check to make it easier for them. Little did we know that making it easier on them cost us an extra $22.00 gratuity for getting us 6 glasses of water! I... More

I hate to say this, and I don't normally write a review, but this was THE WORST buffet I ever paid for. Definately NOT worth the money. I wish I read the reviews before deciding on eating here. The "seafood" part of the buffet is a joke. All the fish options that I tried were over-cooked. The shrimp was mushy.... More
