“Horizons is our favorite restaurant in Ocean City!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Upscale food with moderate reasonable prices. We eat there often. Consistently great food! Their buffet is the best in the area. Imperial Crab is one of our favorites. Great atmosphere, too! Their staff is trained to serve well, and they are so friendly and accommodating. As you can guess from this review, it is our favorite restaurant here, no matter what the occasion! Try it!

“Awesome Hidden Gem”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

The breakfast buffet here has quickly become our family's favorite spot in OC. Great buffet, not a ton of choices but everything offered is fantastic. Served in a great room with an inspiring view of the beach and plenty of space for a large group to gather. The cheese blintz' are AMAZING!

Thank you for your review. Our Deluxe Sunday Breakfast Buffet has been a favorite for so many of our guests, both those staying at our beachfront hotel, those visiting Ocean City, or our locals. We strive for excellence in service and quality of food. The breathtaking view is just the icing on the cake. We can't take credit for it, but we certainly appreciate.

“Terrible!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

The worst experience in Ocean City Maryland and we were hoping for the best. We called two weeks before hand and when we got there and looked forward to it for two weeks the buffet was closed. Yes they decided to close on the weeknights that we were there for vacation because the business was slow. We had every night planned out for a different seafood buffet and this place screwed up our plans. The woman at the front desk threw us attitude and treated us like dirt. We had to switch our plans just for them and eat there on a weekend night which was a big mistake. The food is overrated and again they lied on the phone and claimed they had sea scallops on the buffet and they did not. The buffet was just an average buffet and nothing was special about it and it was overpriced. Bonfire is far better. We go to Ocean city every year and will never go back to this place!

I am disappointed about your dining experience Horizons, our oceanfront dining room. I understand how frustrating it is to be told one thing and find something different. I always suggest checking our's or anyone's website for menus, specials, and hours of operation. I apologize for the misinformation. I know our Prime Rob, Crab Leg & Seafood Buffet is priced higher than the others in town. We serve Certified Angus Beef for our Prime Rib, Alaskan Crab Legs and have a Pasta Bar with an attendant who will prepare you dish to order with your choice of Shrimp, Scallops or Chicken. Perhaps when you inquired about scallops, this is why you were told we had scallops on the buffet. I hope you will visit us again. We have been voted the Best Buffet in Ocean City for the past two years, and feel we are deserving of that reputation.
