The place is super clean. Covid rules in effect. Very nicely decorated. The bartender at the bar was awesome. Service was amazing. But the buffet items were nothing to brag about. The rice was not tasty. Do not get the raw oysters that are kept...in kitchen, you will get sick. There were no dungeons or king crab legs only snow crabs. A lot of fried everything. Not impressed. Will not go back.More

Great buffet, but we focused on the crablegs. Prepared perfectly. Covid precautions were good, people spaced out, watched the staff sanitized the table near us. A great meal.More

The staff here are very professional and well trained, especially our waitress Tarya! She treated us like royalty! The food was the best seafood buffet we have had in this area. Everything was clean and sanitized! We were so impressed that we even had a...chat with the manager. It may seem pricey but for the quality it is worth it.More

Outstanding seafood buffet. Sanitation was a priority requiring masks and gloves (provided) while at the buffet. Every type of seafood you can imagine served in all types of preparation. Staff was excellent, checking several times whether we needed help or additional service. Great experience.More

We always do a buffet when we visit the beach and the quality of the food I tried at this one was above average for buffets. The selections were fresh and ample, including the crab legs . For dessert I had the apple pie and...precan pie. Both were tasty!More

No. They don't take reservations and because they're only handling 50% capacity right now, you need to get there early if you want to beat the crowd.

No. the buffet price is for everything the make except for drinks. you can order off the menu for single items but I found that way to be more expensive then paying buffet price.
