“Excellent. ”
Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

Read the reviews and had to check it out. Excellent service and food. We will be back. The scallops are to die for as is the filet. I had the side of lobster mac and cheese and like everything else it was amazing.

“Extraordinary Brunch!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Brunch was amazing. Made to order omelets, pancakes, waffles - along with meats. Also lunch type items - best shrimp and grits! Very fresh oysters on the half shell, shrimp. Perfectly roasted salmon. The wait staff keep the buffet items well stocked. Our waiter was Todd. He took great care of us, My daughters ages 10 and 14 were happy with mac and cheese. The pancakes had option to add ingredients, too. Several desserts to choose from. Banana breadpudding was great - just catch it while it's fresh. Fruit cobbler not worth the calories, but everything else very high quality. It strikes me how good the quality was for the price. The atmosphere of the restaurant is clean and welcoming. We'll return.

“Best Buffet Brunch in Triangle”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

First time visit and my wife and I were very pleased. In addition to the excellent omelets, they have pancakes, Belgian waffles, bacon, sausage, bagels, they also had fresh oysters, shrimp, seafood thermidor, shrimp and grits, macaroni and cheese, baked salmon, lox, chicken, and a variety of desserts. Friendly and helpful staff and very reasonably priced. We will definitely go back.

“Can't wait to go again!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Eight extended family members embraced the Sunday brunch at Dean's Seafood Bar & Grill. We made reservations to ensure a table but walk-ins are also welcome. It turned into a delight to all the senses. Dean's pulled out all the stops. The freshness and variety was such that anyone with any desires or restrictions would have their needs met. The made to order omelets gave way to so many options I chose the omelet of the day, remarkable. The table favorite was the pancakes made with white & milk chocolate chips and pistachios. For those watching carbs, it included fresh fruits, fresh salad fixings, peel'n eat shrimp, oysters in the half shell, and some of the best salmon I've tasted. It would be impossible to list all the offerings, we were all delighted. Our waiter, Todd treated us as if we were his only table for the time. We even had ice cream to go with the banana bread pudding. All the food was served or kept temperature appropriate. With or without a coupon, it's a great value. I highly recommend.
