“Adequate fish dinner”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

We had the fish dinner buffet, some of which was very good. One of our party thought the crab legs were just mediocre.

“Friday night seafood buffet”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

On the buffet- salad bar, clam chowder (white cream based), fried- popcorn shrimp, clam strips, cod, perch?, frog legs. They also had large crab legs, mussels, baked whitefish, peel and eat shrimp, stuffed crab shells, hot pasta dish, hot vegetable mix, two desserts.
The only negative I can say is a result of it being a buffet- they run out of items and in the rush to restock the quality suffers. Example- they ran out of crab legs, they made some fresh and restocked the tray- they were so hot that when I got them back to my table they started to dry out and you could hear the shells cracking. The meat inside was ruined as there was no moisture left.
There are some notable items that stand out- mussles, frog legs, and the crab legs.
Overall they have a very good selection and price is very reasonable.

“Best Salmon in Effingham”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

By far the best Salmon I've ever had. I had the orange glazed and it was absolutely wonderful. Friendly service and great atmosphere... We sat next to the fireplace.

“Good for snack if staying in hotel”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

I can only give this an average because we just ordered some food for carry-out to our room at the Best Western. We had cheese sticks, jalepeno poppers and chicken gizzards. Portions were good, food was fried perfectly.( Did not have that old grease taste)Service was fast and friendly. Everything tasted real good and good prices.
