A bit overpriced but the food is quite good. The prime ribs are truly prime, not like many steak restaurants. The New England clam chowder is outstanding. It is creamy, thick and filled with lots of clams and other solid ingredients. The buffet is full...More

Not particularly... its a good buffet on standard nights but the extra cost for the seafood buffet doesn't seem worth it. Since they didn't correct our issue, we won't be going back. It's a shame because we used to go... More
