Very disappointed with the food offerings and quality of food. First offs the crab legs are snow crab so let's set the record straight. Rightfully so or the price would be much higher. Which I would be okay with IF they were King crab and food selections and quality were better. I was not impressed at all after my eyes... More

Please people don't waste your time or money eating here. 💸 The $34.99 price tag is way to much for what's offered on the buffet. The food was just sub par, atmosphere outside was awesome and we loved our server Callie but food was a waste of time and money...... Skip it all together.

Being a local of Clearwater Beach, Ocean Flame of Shepard's has been my favorite for years until today. This little hostess with a heavy accent ruined our special day. She seemed to be a racist and would rather accommodate, provide a courteous and better service to people she thinks deserve her attention. Needs a little more training.Perhaps start her by... More

Great and excellent buffet choice after a long long work day, next to our hotel room which left plenty for us go out and search for better comfort. It was a great decision since it was close, food choices were great! Seafood buffet, salad bar, sushi and so much more. Service was excellent and the drinks were not only pretty... More

My family and I have been coming to the "Shephard's buffett", as we like to call it, for what feels like 10 years now. When you arrive at the resort you have two parking choices, valet or self park. We used to valet but now self park. You will find lots of parking opportunities on Bayway behind the Speedway gas... More

Last night of vacation and I wanted to have some seafood/fish and honestly my expectations were exceeded. I had every single type of seafood and everything was fresh and tasted great. More important, the kids had plenty to choose from and the deserts were fantastic too...a bit on the pricy side, but it was worth every penny.
