My husband got food poisoning. Three other guests got sick. Utensils weren't clean. Had chunks of dried stuff on them. The wait staff literally looked like they hated their life. It was a terrible weekend. The food was awful.

I'm not a big seafood fan but hubby wanted to eat here. Nice variety of foods. We ate close to closing time.

Lots of the food items were empty and the others tasted very bland. Service was horrible. The buffet was messy and unorganized. I will not return!
