“Great buffet!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

This is one of the best buffets in AC. Love the crab legs and assortment of seafood dishes. It is always packed but worth the wait. I have never had a disappointing dish there!

“Very disappointing.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Have eaten here several times over the years and amazed by how much the quality has dropped. Prices are up and crab legs are only available during the weekend now.

“Beautiful Ambiance”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

This is the best looking buffet in AC. The interior could be that of a fancy restaurant but what is different here is it has a nice view of their pool house which is a greenhouse with plenty of plant life and sun. Most buffets are closed-off rooms with no views or partial views. The buffet at the Taj actually faces the boardwalk but they wasted it with the cheesy cheap seating area.

The way the food is presented here, you would think the options are unlimited. But there really isn't that much here. The Mongolian station takes up a huge amount of space just for its kitchen setup. I didn't see a station for fruits which I normally like to have as a dessert.

The price is quite hefty. Forty bucks for a buffet! However, the ambiance is key and will make you want to go back since its a very comfy place.

“Great Food Variety”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The Waterfront Buffet is one of the few buffets that I would say I'm completely happy with. There's not a lot of "extreme" food options ...just a wide variety of well prepared and tasty food. If you can't find something to eat, that you like, then you are just not hungry. Like many buffets ...the main attraction seems to be the seafood. Waterfront Buffet won't disappoint. There was a good variety of shrimp, clams, oysters, crab legs to keep any diner happy. The dessert bar however ...is a sweets lovers paradise. The baked goods are fresh and delicious ...and there's a good selection of gelato / ice cream too.
