Ton of selection, good atmosphere. Visited on a Tuesday evening, crab legs had water pouring out of them. A lot of the "stuffed" seafoods tasted the same. So many people it felt like a hazard, but nothing that was "bad". Great grits crab cakes.

Visited with family for Father's Day. Food was good and fresh. Large selection of food for the whole family to choose from. The prices could have been a lot less. $127.50 for 2 adults and 3 children. Good food but expensive.

Some of the food was really fresh and good in size and quantity; however there were some items that were not so fresh. The steak was overcooked but the prime rib was good.
