It had been years since we had eaten here. Thought we'd try it again - Bad decision. Quite dark interior - old type paneling, tables & chairs. Food of fair quality. For a seafood buffet, there was only a fair variety of seafood & if...More

Buffet can be purchased with or without crab legs. Get the crab legs, best we've had in a long time.

Three adults and 2 teenage boys visited shortly after the restaurant opened at 4 p.m. on a Monday. There were several tables seated already and they were eating. We could see a roast beef and a ham under covers on the buffet at a carving...More

This place is barely open and I can see why. Just terrible setup and no choices. The cost is way over what it should be and they have the nerve to include an automatic 15% gratuity! For waiters that you can barely track down because...More
