There was a wide selection of seafood and nonseafood choices. Some of the seafood was better than others, but for a buffet it was all decent. I feel they are a little over priced for what you get. They also own Bishops which is $5...More

I am pretty sure they do it by size because I had two kids off by one year in age. One is very tiny and petite and she was a small child (she is 6). The 7 year old was a large child according to them.
