We did not want to wait outside for 45 minutes, so we walked to this restaurant. We opted for single entrees. They came with one pass of the salad, soup, and dessert buffets. The buffets were ok, just nothing special or out of the ordinary. Too much like regular home fare. The scallops and bacon and jumbo fried shrimp that... More

This all you can eat seafood buffet has the freshest seafood. their buffet has something for everyone. My kids loved the chicken,fries and fruit. My kids were so excited that they had their favorite foods and that they could eat all that they wanted. The desserts were awesome as well as the staff.

Atmosphere could use some updating, we couldn't really tell what the interior theme was supposed to look like???? I had to talk my waitress into ordering me only the crablegs...she kept pushing the buffet, when all I wanted was the crablegs...still got more legs than I could eat.

We chose this restaurant because it offered buffet-style, which meant our non-seafood kid would be able to find something to eat while Mom & Dad could enjoy something, too. Also, it is just off the Boardwalk and an easy walk from any hotel there. I was a little skeptical at first because the exterior looks like it's had a lot... More

Great place to take the family for a wonderful buffet. Food is good, get there early for the early bird pricing.

I went on a day trip with my husband and one month old daughter to Ocean City. We drove to the first seafood buffet we saw and hoped for the best. While the restaurant is dark and outdated the food was delish. Hubby loved the crab legs and I loved the mussels and clams! Shrimp were good as well. Very... More

In the midst of outrageous prices, Jonah's gives you a little hope that you can still have enough money for breakfast the next day. While the full buffet was around $32, they offered a pasta, salad and dessert bar for $16 and it wasn't bad. Had your choice of 3 sauces, some seafood add-ins that were cut up into very... More

We decided on this All you can eat because it was in walking distance of our hotel. Great interior ship galley but not overdone. Selection on Buffet was good something for everyone. If you go between 4-4:30pm when they open they take a few dollars off each adult buffet price. Will eat there again.
