This place was empty probably due to the end of the season. The food was surprisingly good and the service was excellent.

If it was possible to give them no stars, I would. I hated to pay for it, thats how bad it was. Sorry didnt want to waste effort taking pictures. Very greasy food and the crab was still blue which I think when cooked the shell should turn pink. They were so small I thought about calling the authorities, they... More

Very high priced, tasteless food, poor service. Ordered lobster tails which normally I love. They were flavorless and burned around the edges. Buffet wasn't much to speak of either. Clam chowder tasted old. We paid $110 for two people and walked away very disappointed. Would not recommend or ever return.

Buffet was very good, with a lot of choices, including items that kids like. Quality of the food was also good

The best thing I can say about this place is that I don't have food poisoning. Nothing was good. I've had better food at cheap Chinese buffets in Kentucky.

In our party, 4 out of 5 took the buffet.(One daughter took the spag and meatballs: said it was excellent!) For the buffet, it was ok. We knew it was not fine food, more like a buffet at a Dineyworld restaurant: everything for everyone! Crab legs are extra, did not purchased, it was already expensive for me at 25$ each... More

The worst place to get seafood. First of all the buffet prices are not on the menu. Being a family of five we knew it would be somewhat expensive but at $25 an adult and them considering a 15 and 12 year old as adults is outrageous. Our bill ended up over $150 and the kids didnt eat much casue... More

Worst buffet I've ever been to. It started with the coupon book found at the beack. Picture shows crab legs on the buffet...7.99 extra when there. Have to say they were the best part. Shrimp were gritty, pudding was spoiled, shredded salad cheese was moldy, sweet tea had turned. Nothing was marked on the buffet to know what you were... More

So bad first...the food was so overpriced. My family and I got the buffet. The food was okay at best. It was clearly all from frozen or out of a can. Nothing was fresh (I mean come on, it is right on the beach)! However, the restaurant was nicely decorated and clean and our server was so nice.
