First and last visit. Food was greasy and oysters were not fresh, had a fishy odor. All members of our party wound up with stomach issues. Maybe a prep worker had a stomach virus?

We brought my husband here for Father's Day. All of us loved the buffet. He especially loved his seven helpings of Alaskan king crab legs! Great meal, friendly customer service. Try the buttermilk pie. You will love it!
