This seafood buffet is fantastic. Snow crab clusters and dungeonous crab that never ends. Steamed shrimp and clams seasoned very well. Lightly fried shrimp and scallops delicious. Can't say that the desserts looked great as I left no room but well worth the $35.00 price. Service by Brittany was excellent!

My husband, kids and I were here 20+ years ago, a lot has changed in that time including the quality of the food. Most of my food was lukewarm if that, and we were there right around when they first opened. Our waiter Chris was very good and made sure to come back to remove our plates and make sure... More

We might have eaten our weight in crab legs. The buffet was huge, so big that they color coded the sections, so that it was easier to find your table. If you are not a seafood person, there are other tasty items, but it would be hard to get your money's worth. Our server, Jasmine, was great too. Give her... More

Went there years ago, looking forward to a return trip. Arrived 4:00PM on a Saturday, line was out the door to the parking lot!!! Must still be good, because no where else in town had a crowd like that!!! Hope to try again my next visit. Hope the people that waited enjoyed themselves?????

Pros: The all you can eat crab legs are amazing! Cons: The place is always packed and there is a long unorganized outdoor line at times full of line cutters. The staff should be outside to keep things organized. Outside of the crab legs, I find everything else average at best. Overall: If you love crab legs and you want... More

It has been awhile since I had nern to this location. Last CG location we went to was in Myrtle Beach and that was rather mediocre and disappointing. The prospect of spending $40 for average food made me a bit uneasy. BUT!!! To my pleasant surprise this Williamsburg location did not disappoint. The food was flavorful, the crablegs were healthy...

Great place to go if you like crab legs and seafood in many different styles. You are probably wasting your money if you don't want seafood. Have a large variety of many different foods. You can even fix a salad. Dessert bar is good also but they don't have German Chocolate Cake any more. Certainly go if you like seafood.

Very good place to eat but, to me, slightly over-priced. They have a great menu, but I do not eat enough to justify that big a meal. The said when we got there that the average stay in the restaurant is 2 1/2 hours. I can't do that. The servers and help were more than nice. If you like seafood,... More
