“Terrible food at a high price”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

We ate here on Labor Day weekend because there was only a short line and most Dell's restaurants were jammed. The sketchy motel next door almost caused us to find somewhere else. If only we had! The buffet is $20 not including drinks or crab legs - despite the name. The crab legs are extra at $10 per pound. The buffet is substandard, over warmed food. The worst part is that they will charge you $3 for "excessive food left on the plate." We didn't want to incur this charge so felt forced to eat almost everything and it ranged from passable hush puppies to down right scary fish. They brought my husband a frozen beer and told him to "wait a bit" before he drank it because "it is pretty cold in there." It will definitely go down as one of our worst dining out experiences. I just hope none of us get sick.

“Disgusting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Seriously a total rip off. They charge you way too much for food that tastes like they purchased it as cheap as possible. We will never eat here again! It was double the cost of anywhere else we ate on our whole vacation. It was the worst restaurant I have ever been to.

“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

Looked and sounded like it would be fun, and all you can eat crab was really enticing. However, all you can eat crab was extra, food was bland, entertainment was awful, and the restaurant itself looked like it had been thrown together in a day. It was the biggest letdown of our Dells vacation, would never go back.

“Yuck...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

Food was old and stale.

Service was ok.

False advertising about crab legs as they are added cost to the silly... Yes silly priced low class buffet.

Place stunk like dead fish roasting on a river rock on sunny day.

No thanks.. Rather starve.
