My family came from out of state. We had lunch at Ocean Buffet, in Ocala, FL. In my opinon the prices were great and a lot to choose from the lunch Buffett. I like sushi & what I liked was not readily available.

The dessert selection is good, but some are just out of a can - not what I prefer when eating out. The more desirable meats were always depleted and not replaced within a meal's time. This place is too unorganized and too noisy to enjoy...More

The atmosphere here is nice and over all it is a clean establishment. There are plenty of choices and they seemed to always be full. The restaurant leans more towards chicken and seafood without many beef choices. Overall we enjoyed our visit and the wait...More

Google the restaurant and it should tell you, or call them. I ate there and it was not over the weekend, so no idea.
