I’ve read a wide range of reviews for this place with people saying it is wonderful and it is terrible. My wife and I decided to try it out as we had coupons offering a reasonably priced whole lobster with the buffet.
I’d say it was neither wonderful nor awful. We both walked in and waddled out so it was obvious that we had eaten our fair share. It would be terribly unfair to say the food was bad. It would be untrue, however, to say that the food was great.
First off, the lobsters were cooked for us and they were just fine. They were chicken lobsters and were tasty. They were simply steamed or boiled and were fine. On the buffet the snow crab legs were decent as well; the only complaint about them was that they were not super-hot.
Actually, the ‘not super-hot’ is an apt description of everything on the buffet. Not one thing was really hot enough.
The shrimp were okay but the mussels were terrible. Fried oysters and clams were fine. The Clams Casino tasted decent but they really weren’t genuine Clams Casino. The Oysters Rockefeller were clumps of spinach with cheese on them. I’m not sure any oysters lost their lives in the making of this dish. They had prime rib and I’m not sure if the diner is supposed to carve it or if they carve it. I carved some and it was done more than I’d have liked it and like most everything else, it was lukewarm.
I liked the local fresh tuna and would have really liked it if it had been hot. The creamy dilled tilapia was, essentially tasteless. The bread pudding was decent and I did enjoy the key lime pie.
On the plus side, it is nicer on the inside than it is on the outside and the staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. You really can’t help but like these people.
All in all, it was a good enough meal to fill out bellies and have some tasty morsels; but hotter food would have raised the level of this place a great deal.
