It was a pretty typical "all you can eat" restaurant. The food was pretty bland. Lots of fried options. All of the desserts tasted like out of the freezer boxed type. For the price you pay for a dinner here it would be well worth going to one of the many other seafood restaurants in the area.

I paid $138 including tax and tip for 3 adults and a child, we mainly went for the all you can eat crab legs, the food was average, not a hug selection, especially a sad desert section, it's a small food area with a good sized seating area, a little run down looking. The last selection of food were the... More

Went jor the all you can eat crab legs. They were water logged and bland tasting. Everything on the buffet was bland in flavor and not fresh. I have seen better at Golden Corral for less money if that gives you any idea of the food. (I dont eat at Golden Corral.). Skip this one try one of the others... More

When you walk in you can tell the cleanliness is not as a great as the other location Jacks. The quality of food is fair for the price but you can tell that things that customers do not eat off the bar are not refreshed and looks old. Needs to be refreshed so it looks appealing for customers. Restrooms are... More

Huge crab legs, very large shrimp, cocktail sauce was excellent! Lots of food to choose from. Something for everyone. $29.95 for adults 12 and up. Ripoff for my 14 yr old who doesn't eat much but I didn't mind paying it since I could get all I could eat crab legs.

The worse food I've ever eaten in my life. I'd rather eat sand and drink saltwater.The French fries taste like a bag of fries that you get frozen from Kroger.

Upon entering the restaurant we were seated in a booth. There is a partition wall that prevents you from seeing buffet. The food was good and one person in our party doesn't eat seafood, enjoyed chicken and steak. Limited number of side selections. The dessert bar was nasty. All desserts were from a box or can. They do have fabulous... More

This is a really good buffet. Everything was good and crab legs were awesome. This was the 2nd time we have ate there. We had 8 people in our party and the wait was not long at all.
