With so many mixed reviews, I decided to take my family for two reasons: They serve food until 12am and because of the Last review by Caleb (A child's opinion). Upon entering the place we were greeted cheerfully by two hotesses. The hostess immediately allowed...More

The service was poor and slow at this restaurant. It took 30 minutes to receive drink orders and another 30 mins to receive appetizers. We were there 11/2 hours before we received our food. When our food arrived, the soup was cold, the nachos were...More

I got the unlimited gulf shrimp. The shrimp were good size and tasted fresh. The singer was good and told some amusing stories as well.

Good seafood and American cuisine. Good value. Both times we were there there was live music by a duo/trio in the manner of Jimmy Buffett. Great all you can eat buffet on Saturday night.
