If you are in the mood for crab legs buy them in the store. They don't have them on the menu. I called them and said you are false advertising. I reported them to the BBB. They still have them on there ads.

If you are going out for buffet you aren't looking for a fancy dinner. However I think this is one of the best buffets we have. The food is consistently good, the place itself is clean, and it has a good variety. The sushi isn't...More
