Made the mistake of going an 30 minutes before closing. The service was nonexistent, as 3 people tried to take care of us, but we waited long periods of time for them to bring silverware, clear plates and bring drinks. Some items on the buffet...More

The beach is nice (although not much left). The bar is nice but the buffet sucks. The food is too commercialized. Nothing gourmet here. Very poor quality. They are definitely catering to those without taste buds

My husband I ate there the first night of our stay at Shephards Beach Resort. They had fantastic prime rib. I loved the crab ribs and the other seafood. They had many desserts to choose from. It was well worth the money.
