If you like seafood this place was decent. However the hostess was extremely rude. What a shame for people looking for good customer service.

Right on the boardwalk you can eat seafood to your heart's desire! You can get the unlimited buffet or a specific entree. Either way you can't lose. Definitely stop here!!
