Way Too Expensive For a Buffet They Claim is a Seafood Buffet But Fact Is, It Is a Regular Buffet With A Few Seafood Plate $30.00+ Per Person Is a Little Too High. The Service Was Ok.

For being a buffet, the food was excellent and always fresh! The endless crab legs are definitely worth the trip!

The seafood was lukewarm at best. There was 3 in our group before 6 pm and with a coupon the bill was $100. Not to mention we had water to drink. Very disappointed with such a high price. I will not return!

Look for coupons but I believe it was $24.99 per person. I didn't have children so couldn't answer that, sorry.
