“Good buffet, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

First time eating at bonfire. We enjoyed it very much. Food was good, many options to choose from, really good crab legs. Restaurant was nice and clean. Service was excellent. Went for the early bird special and saved $5 per person.

“eat your fill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The buffet cuts no corners. Great beef. Plenty of delicious sides. Of course the sea food items are great. Lots of variety , fresh and constantl;y attended to. Even desserts are over the top. Drinks aren't exceptional, but you can't have it all.

“Above average buffet food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

The food is above average for an all you can eat buffet...there's enough variety in addition to the seafood for everyones taste. I skipped the salads and soups, although they looked good, and went straight for the steamed shrimp and clam strips. For the main course there was a nice variety of fish, each with a different preparation and taste as well as fried oysters and fried shrimp plus prime rib, roast beef, ham, and all the sides you could want.

For dessert don't miss the fresh donuts... Our suggestion, top a fresh donut with warm apple cobbler then soft serve vanilla ice cream then hot caramel sauce.

“all the seafood you want is here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We go to this restaurant every time we visit Ocean City. It has the hugest buffet around, lots of seafood including crab legs and chicken, prime rib, ham etc. There's something on the buffet for everyone. I love to start with the crab dip which is outstanding and end with a brownie dessert topped with whipped cream and strawberries.

“Great buffet in OCMD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We visit the Bonfire every year while vacationing at the beach. The food is endless and the variety is amazing. The very best crab legs, prime rib and everything else you could possibly want. No one should every leave here hungry. The price is reasonable considering the amount of food served. They offer an early bird special between 4 and 5 PM. Great place!!
