When our traditional restaurant was closed for the season, we came across King Crab. We were served by an outstanding waiter (PJ). Our group enjoyed the large variety of food being offered. All of it was well prepared, the beverages were kept full, and the desserts (creme puffs especially) were delicious! Great choice for families, couples, and groups of golfers!... More

Stepping into this restaurant is like stepping back into the past. All the furniture is old and looks like it is right out of the 70's. The food also tasted like it has been around a while. The variety is ok but everything on the buffet was old and some of the fish I tried was hard and seemed like... More

A large selection to choose from. I love their crab legs and the many types of shrimps they have. Enjoyed the food but it's a bit pricey. If your on a budget it's not for you. The hotel coupon books have $5 and $10 off coupons. Otherwise the food and service is very good!

Took the family there on our last day there. Food was pretty good overall. And the price wasn't over the top. I do recommend getting the coupon off the website. It helps a lot with a big group.
