A little surprised about the good reviews, one even on the same day we went. We had reservations, for what I dont know. After being sat we waiting 15 mins before a waitress came over to us, then ordered, took a half hour for my husband to get his french onion soup, the spoon for it arrived 15 mins before that, then took another 45 minutes for our dinner to arrive. We were a party of 3, 2 adults and one child. Really?? My husband ordered steak, to be cooked medium. It came out not only rare but raw inside-cold. Outside was browned. He sent it back, the waitress never apoligized ever, brought the steak back a couple mins later, all they did was cook the sides of the 2 pieces he cut apart. Oh and while were were waiting all the time for our food we at all the bread in our basket, we asked for more and our waitress said sure, came back and said they were out of bread. Then not 5 mins later seen a waiter take a basket of bread to his table. Lets just say we were not happy.

We went on a Thursday so my husband could enjoy the seafood buffet. Surprisingly, I was able to order off of the regular menu! The variety of food at the buffet from the mussels, shrimp, Dungeness crab to my flounder was delicious.

Our family had dinner here for the first time on Labor Day 2013. My husband has been talking about going to their Monday night crab feasts for years. Five of the six of us opted for the all you can eat Dungeness crab legs with red potatoes and corn on the cob. We loved it! Service was great, decent prices on bottles of wine (too bad they aren't a BYOB) and our waiter kept the crab legs and butter coming! It wasn't cheap at $29.99 per person but it was worth it. My daughter opted for a filet and she was very happy with her dinner. We will go back.

We went the 1st night for the prime rib special. My boyfriend enjoyed his prime rib. It was juicy and cooked perfect. I had the filet mignon so tender and seasoned perfect. We liked it so much that we went back for the seafood buffet. Best value! There were many options to choose from and everything we ate was delicious. Our waitress Jess was wonderful she went above and beyond to bring out fried shrimp that we had expected on the buffet , but they rotate with fried scallops (which were yummy too)! Included awesome variety dessert table. The oreo cake and caramel apple cake are so good! Will definitely be back! Side note the hostess said they had recently hired new chef's good pick!

good food and a good value - the breakfast buffet is really good. Tripadvisor, is a 60-character minimum really necessary here?
