Lots of choices and some really good food. Loved the coconut shrimp and the chinese ribs! They do a good job keeping the buffet stocked with fresh items. Recommend.

I arrived on a Friday evening and the place was packed (I am assuming there were many locals). Although it was little standing room in the waiting area, my party had to only wait 15 minutes for a table. The food was excellent - I even enjoyed the green tea ice cream. Definitely hit the spot on my road trip... More

I loved it. The food was good the staff was friendly. With all you can eat at 11.99 isn't to bad. They have it where you can choose what food you want to put on the Hibachi Grill.

First time to Ocean Buffet. The selection was fantastic and food was very good. Waitress kept plates cleared for returns to Buffet. Sushi bar was amazing and options for raw and cooked were available. Will definitely return for other meals

Told the person up front that a man was going around from table to table asking for money and to buy his pins. I don't mind if I'm at a festival or something but didn't care for a strange man to come up to me during lunch. They didn't care that he was doing that and asking everyone for money.... More

If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. The selection is extensive and delicious and they make sure everything is timely replenished and looks appetizing. The cleanliness speaks for itself and the price is right. Not to forget the servers, who are very attentive. It's a once a week visit.

Large buffet with good food. There were plenty of choices. Some of the choices were great and some mediocre. They even had raw oysters. My suggestion would be to try a little bit of each. Then go back for more of the foods you thought wee the best. Food was hot and fresh. Everything seemed to get replenished. Dessert included... More
