For the price, the food was below average. If you are going to eat here, stick to the salad, peel and eat shrimp, sliced prime rib, the crab chowder and the ice cream. Everything else was gross. However the service was very good and my...More

The food is good but it does not have the emphasis on seafood (especially crab) that some of the other big seafood buffet's have. I was disappointed that they did not offer Blue Claw Crab, especially during the height of the local crab season.More

Everything was so good!! Great selection of foods...there is something for everyone's taste. They keep on top of everything and make sure the trays don't sit empty. I would absolutely go there again. They also have a good selection of desserts.

Great place for seafood buffet! Service was good as well. Had their new peach tea, pretty tasty! Raw oysters, shrimp, and crab legs all in point. The sliced beef looked good as well. Very nice variety of desserts.

The first and the largest All You Can Eat Prime Rib and Seafood Buffet in Ocean City with the greatest variety of seafood, including crab legs, clams and oysters, and many other seafood dishes. We also have many chicken, beef, pasta and vegetable offerings that pleases visitors along with the Executive Chef's culinary creations.
