Not bad but a bit overpriced. Their all you can eat is based on market price. They have fresh seafood. Great staff. I figured their servings would be bigger.

Was visiting Frederick with family and wanted a good seafood dinner. This fit the the bill. Although they were out of crabs there was still plenty to choose from on the menu.. I had the clams, they were amazing the best I have ever eaten!
