For $80, we got the pleasure of getting ill on the boardwalk and spending the rest of the evening in the hotel out of fear of being too far from a bathroom. Please don’t fall for the “free lobster” scam. My daughter’s was literally green...More

My husband had been here many years ago with his late wife, so we decided to try it again. We did not get the crab legs, just the regular buffet. I thought for the price, the food could have been better.

We wish we had gone elsewhere. On a Friday night The food was mediocre at best. The "seafood" was terrible. Half the food was just warm/cold. What a letdown. Go somewhere else! I don't know how this place stays in business.

It is a good deal if you can eat a lot. The food on the buffet was really good. There is a lot of variety! The service is very friendly.

The food was mediocre. The salad bar needed a bit more variety but it had tacos which was kind of weird. The buffet food was typical buffet quality. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either. There are much better restaurants for your money...

It had been years since we had eaten here. Thought we'd try it again - Bad decision. Quite dark interior - old type paneling, tables & chairs. Food of fair quality. For a seafood buffet, there was only a fair variety of seafood & if...More
