“Seafood Buffet maybe overstating it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Ok buffet food, not much more seafood then other buffets. If you paid the extra fee, crab legs are brought, if the waiter didnt take care of us, the extra fee would not have been worth it.

“Captain jim's has terrible food but nice people.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Overpriced beyond reason with terrible food. The staff were all nice and polite, but that did not make up for the deplorable food. We didn't have the crab legs since it was an added $10 a person on top of the $20 per person buffet and $3 soda. Also not a lot of choice in food and dessert, along with a pathetic salad bar.
