“School dinners”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Poor quality cafeteria. Ok if desperate for food and in need of quantity, but otherwise location is the only good part.

“Not great for vegetarians”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

My family (all of whom eat meat) had a great time there and really enjoyed themselves. I thought that the salad bar was pretty limp and underwhelming and the fish (which I eat) was overcooked.

“Two words: Food Poisoning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

As others have said, the location is terrific. The food is pretty standard for a buffet, as is the service.

3-4 hours after my dinner here, I vomited. I spent that night and the next day doing the same. I tried to think of what else might have caused it, but it wasn't the Mickey ice cream bar I had for lunch or the bagel I had for breakfast. You might be ok if you stick to the freshest items, but I wouldn't risk it. Between the delayed flight and extra night at the hotel I had to pay for, this meal cost me about $400.

“You'll be surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We always have breakfast at Captain Kidd's. The buffet breakfast is terrific. Wide assortment of breakfast items, meats, excellent pastries, and all you can eat. The staff are always friendly and they work hard. You can get it and get out as fast or as slowly as you want. Of course it's a great choice for kids. My kids like it better because they don't have to wait for table service at IHOP next door. But were not knocking IHOP either. Look for the coupons they hand out on Harbor Blvd by the crossing signal.

“Great for fussy eaters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We came across this place when staying at the carousel Inn just two doors down and I had a fussy 5 year old eater so it suited her just fine . And we didn't mind it either as there was a large variety of foods that we got to try as we were from Australia and don't have a lot of these things back home. ENJOYABLE
