“good buffet”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

This is a good alternative to the over crowded,over priced "Calabash" buffets. The quality of the food is good for a buffet and the price is right. The attention to keeping the buffet freshened and clean is above average. You don't get crab legs here but the offerings are as good or better than the 'Calabash" places that are strictly tourist traps.

“Friendly Service, but Average Food”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

The hospitality was great, but the food was average. The steak bar was a bit disappointing. My Dad had his steak re-cooked and it still was not well done. It is affordable for a family on vacation, but did not leave any of the party of six asking when we would eat there next.
