We went with 2 adults and 2 kids. There were plenty of choices for everyone. Crab legs were very good and other food quality was good as well. Wait staff was exceptional.

Our server was very nice. Alot of choices of food that is meh. Expensive for the quality. Dinner was 29. Prime rib is poor quality and the steak tough. Granted, it's a buffet. Will not go back or recommend either; it's just straight up too pricey for what you get. Live and learn.

My family went here for a late lunch. If you have a coupon and arrive before 3:00 it's cheaper. It's around $25 adult and $15 for children under 13. The staff was friendly and our waitress was on top of things. Plenty of seafood to choose from as well as ribs, beef, fried chicken and pasta. They have a large... More

Our family of 4 visited this location on a Tuesday evening (before 4 to save $5 a person with coupon to make it $23.99 + drinks). "Calabash" means lightly battered and deep fried which was probably 15 items on the buffet line. They pretty much all tasted the same. The crab legs were what I came for and Bennett's did... More

The food was great. The choices overwhelming. The wait staff and management went over and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. They were very prompt and courteous. Great price. Very clean and food pleasingly arranged. Will definitely return when in the area.

Service was fair at best because they were so busy it was a zoo. The food was fresh and the variety outstanding. We have tried other buffets in the area and typically it is poor quality fish and a lot of fried food. That's not the case here. Large crab legs, oysters, and fresh grilled grouper just to name a...

Struggled with giving this only 1 star but the waitress Jessy was so apologetic and sweet that I felt she deserved a star all alone. One star for the selection, one star for the waitress and then it went downhill from there. Before we found the long blonde hair in our food I noticed what seemed to be the manager... More

I only gave it a 3 because of the price. It was a little expensive but the crab legs were the best I have had cooked perfectly. The rest of the food was good. We had a young teenager who didn't want buffet so the manager let us just get her a little Mac and Cheese.

This place was a bit over priced and not great. The food was just ok but the service was excellent. My daughter is a vegetarian and really nothing worth it for her on a 25 dollar buffet. I enjoyed most of what I ate but had better for sure. They have a small menu if you don't want the buffet.

I've been too many seafood buffets, this is at the top of my list for sure. We went right at 5 to avoid the crowd and everything was still available and it wasn't old. The only thing about buffets like this is they charge such a high price and I don't feel like I eat $28 worth of food.
