I was excited to eat Oysters Rockefeller, Roast Beef, Fresh Oysters and Clam Chowder to my hearts content at the Seafood Buffet. Granted we were there in the off-season, but my first tip should have been that there was only one other couple in the whole restaurant. The food was anything but fresh.The Oysters Rockefeller was dried out and nasty.... More

The location of this cafe is great, but the food is expensive. It is also hard to find because it is inside the Isla Grand Hotel.
