Thank you for your review. We have revamped out buffet this season to cater to those who are not crab lovers. Our buffet is priced with or without crab legs. Our full menu is also available. We want everyone to enjoy oceanfront dining.

Great food a bit on the pricey side but that expected during peak season. Food is always good, not gourmet if you get the buffet.
