Food was fresh, they kept all items stocked. Tasted great. Only downside for me was how crazy busy/crowded it was- obviously a good thing for them, but just a little intense for me.

My answer is the same as Abby's. $34 for the buffet and lots of options other than seafood. I'm not a big fan either. And they do have a menu.
