We tried everywhere to find a seafood buffet without everything being fried, battered or crumbed. Happily we paid our $52 to indulge in unlimited Prawns, Oysters, Moreton Bay Bugs, Paddle Crabs and Swimmer crabs among a great selection of other seafood and non-seafood items including Roast Pork. There aren't children because this is a serious buffet.
The waste buckets were regularly emptied and service was great.
After a 2.5 hour session we all were completely satisfied and destined to return!

Staffs: They were always smiling, friendly and ready to help you out. We were told we could have a look at the buffet selection prior deciding whether to eat at the place or not. Our seafood waste bowl was always taken care of and our drinks were filled quickly. Overall, staffs were efficient and professional.

Buffet Selection: On a Friday night, the seafood available include oysters (very small in size), bug, crab (not very fresh), smoked fish, prawns (these were not too bad) and seafood soup. Salad, potato, and some other cold serves were available. The hot food selection were chewy calamari, some chicken and stir-fry beef, vegetarian pasta, steamed fish, jasmine rice and vegetables. Deserts available were ice-cream (2 different favours), various cake slices, 2 cheese cakes, a chocolate cake and some hot egg-based and berries desert.

I was a little disappointed with the food varieties (I was hoping to see lobster, scallop and a bit more hot food for pricing $52 pp.

I will wait awhile before returning to give this seafood buffet another try.
