Great service, reasonable pricing, and all you can eat. The wait staff are very efficient. The crab legs seemed to never end and the oysters were fresh and clean.

Good food, but since we have a family of four, and their prices are sky high, no matter what you eat there, when you go pay for it, you get heartburn..? Never will we return, we can't afford it!

The buffet is 50 dollars per person. I concentrated on the crab legs. They we're very good and plentiful on the buffet. You don't have to wait on the server to bring them to your table. For this reason I feel I got my money's...worth.More

I was nervous to come here because of the mixed reviews on TripAdvisor. But folks, this place is awesome. First let me say that the buffet is $49.99 plus tax per person. I’m sure there is a discount price for kids, but that did not...apply to us. So I don’t know what that is. The buffet is absolutely huge. It’s all you can eat. There is crab, and a whole bunch of variety of seafood. It’s all delicious. The price may seem like a lot at first, but it’s well worth it. And if your a crab lover you call easily eat your $50 in crab alone. We got sat at a table quickly and our waiter was attentive to make sure we had what we needed. I definitely recommend and will be coming back.More

$199 for 2 adults and 2 children. Over priced buffer for the food they served. Dinning area carpet is very dirty. Waiter never came back to refill the drinks.

I was very disappointed in the quality of the food served. Everything was over cooked and just wasn't good quality. If you are in the area I would recommend skipping this one. For $100 I expected much more.

All I can saw is wow! The best variety of seafood I haveeverseen. Expensive but worth it. Get a coupon from one of the paper tourist guides. Coupons must be given when you check in.. Someone in line gave us a $3 one good for...each adult. Ask for the drink menu. I tried the frozen top shelf margarita for about $11 and the Ocean Breeze for $8. Both were beyond excellent. As were theTropicola and Volcano for $10 each that the other adults had. Starting with the deserts because that is what we saw first. Dip it yourself ice creams...oreo, chocolate, rainbow strawberry, pecan, and vanilla. The other cakes and pies were the real thing not the cheap sheet cakes other buffets have. Too many to describe but they did have pecan pie and tiramisu. Most of the seafood was deep fried except for the salmon and shell fish. A huge variety of excellent fish including grouper which I thought was the best. The frog legs had a spicier coating which again was excellent as were the crab stuff mushrooms. The deep fried battered scallops were the large ones cut in half and fried. Again superb. Supposedly 170 different items and I wouldn't contradict that. Others loved the crab legs but I don't like the work involved when there were so many other options.More
