“Real Seafood Buffet”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Im gonna try and make this short and simple. This place has every seafood that you could desire on the buffet, HOT and available to you at all times. Some buffets lack variety... well not this one. You get everything from CRAB LEGS, calimari, grouper ect to steak, fried chicken, pizza and mac n cheese. The sign says 170 items and I wouldn't doubt it. Probably one of the best features is the Hibatchi grill, where you get to select the raw food of your choice then have a cook whip it up on the grill right in front of you to your desire. Yeah, they're a little pricey but there are coupons for this restaraunt at EVERY hotel in the city so be smart.
P.S. I lied about the "short and simple" part but once i thought about how much I enjoyed my experience It was hard to leave some stuff out. *shrug*

“Lots of Seafood!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Great value (especially w/coupon!). Lots of fresh good food to choose from. I was impressed w/the cleanliness of the buffet. Staff was constantly attending to cleaning and restocking. What impressed me besides the staff doing that, was the variety of fresh seafood-crab legs, mussels ,clams, oysters, shrimp. It's one of the better buffets, and I'm not a fan of buffets!

“Crab legs on buffet”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

We try to eat at this buffet when in NMB. With coupons, it brings it down to a reasonable price. With wide variety of seafood fixed in different ways plus other types of meats for people in party who aren't big seafood eaters, it is hard to beat. Also, one of the few places you can get crab legs on the buffet for this price.

“Good grub”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

We went to the giant crab with some reservations due to the mixed reviews we had read. What we found was that we were seated promptly and greeted by our server quickly who took our drink orders and directed us to the buffet. The buffet is Hugh and diverse. If you can not find something fish,fowl or beef to eat you are blind. The fish is pretty good, the meats and chicken dishes were also good especially the steak. Lots of soup choices I especially liked the she crab soup. With a coupon $20 per person not counting drink cost. I would go back.
