We didn't try any other buffet on MB to compare but this one was not worth it. Everything or almost is fried so it all taste the same. No veggies more than boiled carrot or bad brocoli and cheese. Price is 18 if you don't have crab legs or 27 if you do. Which is less than most of the other buffet in MB but I woud have tried someplace else. Better go in a real seafood restaurant if that's what you're craving for.

From the outside it looked like a "comfy" place to eat, and it was. Although the all-you-care-to-eat crab legs was not included in the advertised 2 for $35 price, the rest of the buffet was very nice. lots to pick from, ham, prime rib, steak, meatballs, chicken strips, chicken, boiled shrimp, and the dessert tables were literally piled with platters of goodies that really looked like they had been made on-site, not store-bought. Our server was, I believe, Russian, very nice young man, very attentive. The atmosphere overall was country; baskets, checked curtains, wood floors, nice comfy rocking chairs on a wide shady front porch. I absolutely LOVED this place, it was charming.

This restaurant was really nice. It is not a huge place - which we loved. We added crablegs onto our buffet which was a total of $27 per person. This is VERY reasonable considering we had visited the larger buffets - for $60 per person. The buffet had anything you can imagine on it - plenty of variety and it was all delicious. Overall - a great experience and kid-friendly!

Lots of fresh seafood, and a large assortment, large crab legs, great service, always prenty of food. on the buffey. Stop at other in the same area and the food was a lot less quality and still charged the same price. Well worth the money spent.

This is not a Seafood or Country Buffet. The seafood was limited to all breaded, fried seafood, if you could find any in the breading. You had to peel the shrimp, and the breading tasted liked left over corn meal, two weeks past. The country side was all from the can or frozen In my thinking...no taste. We saw our waiter once, and had to go to the register to get our bill. When you go in they tell you that if you want crab legs, it will be another $10.00 ....$37.00! I saw the crab legs...they must have been under nourished. Save your cash!
