Come hungry and come early. There is a huge selection of food at the buffet with something for everyone’s taste especially the seafood lovers. Come early to avoid the wait to be seated. It’s a bit pricey for a large family but it is “all...More

Really a good place -- we sat outside and Jimmy and Joanna were our wait staff. They were rock stars and really made it a great experience. If you can, sit outside as it's pretty crowded inside (my only complaint). Not sure why they don't...More

Too hot, too crowded, too noisy, too much! The place was packed and if you have clostrephobia take your smelling salts. Also found the price to be very high. We will not be returning.

The buffet has many options. Coupons are available for different nights in the vacation guides. A bit noisy, but everyone has a good time. Casual dining, friendly service.

Three of us tried a large variety of seafood (crab legs, clams, salmon, white fishes, tuna, etc.) as well as veggies, starches, and desserts. There was plenty to choose from, but not much quality. I would suggest you go to a nice seafood restaurant where...More

It's a seafood buffet folks. Not fine dining. Belly up to the trough and get your crab leg fix. And you get to watch the yankees try to crack crabs. At $36.00 per person you need to be hungry, love seafood, and not expect a...More

It is a seafood buffet so I didn’t really see a menu but there were lots of options for kids on the buffet.

Usually the best times are before 5:30pm or after 7:30pm. The food stays plentiful until 10:30pm. The less busy days are Sundays Monday and Saturday. Call and get your name on the waitlist to cut down wait time
