If you love buffet and seafood. You will be in heaven. Sushi, fried fish, steamed fish, fish soup , etc. I’m not aware of any other seafood buffet in the area. I recommend this place for a satisfying lunch.

I'm pretty sure they do, but unless you have a very large party, I doubt you'll need it. The place is enormous.
