We had a great server, sorry didn't catch his name. Three of us had the buffet and it was very very good. Ordering off the menu was not so much. It's for seafood, do not get prime rib. Big place. Good service.

As someone who doesn't really care for seafood and doesn't eat crab legs at all, this is a waste of money, but I come because usually the buffet has plenty of good food for non-seafood lovers. This year we went around 7 on and it...More
