Delicious brunch for party of 11. We arrived just as the buffet ended, but the staff allowed us in to enjoy their brunch anyway. The food was delicious and they kept replenishing the buffet even though were past the ending hour.

We took our boat into the docking area, and saw this restaurant and decided to give it a try, the tuna sandwich was good, fries were okay, sweet tea wasn’t that good.
