We had dinner at this restaurant 2 years ago. We never go to "all you can eat buffet" but then we were invited inside to see what they have. We were impress by the variety of seafood they had: alaskan crab legs, jumbo shrimp, mussels,...More

The Buffet was overpriced for the food that was on it and just bad, dried out and nasty. The fish was inedible to the point we asked the waiter to take it back. Instead of apologizing for serving inedible food the owner was downright rude!

This restaurant is one of the few remaining restaurants that is good, not great but very good. The buffet is worth the money if you enjoy seafood. It is not huge but it provides many favorites including crab legs. Service is very good.

This place is way to pricey for the quality of food. Wanted seafood and this place wasn't overly crowded during the July 4th week. We now know why! Nearly everything we tried from the buffet was just blah. Got the crab legs and they were...More
