My boyfriend and I wanted to find a seafood buffet for dinner. They had tons of crab legs which is what we were wanting while we were at the beach most. The baked oysters were very good as well. Some stuff was a hit or miss( some fried food was cold) but if you are wanting boiled seafood over fried... More

We had two teenager boys. They ate like it was going out of style. We got finish felt as though we needed help getting up. My son asked when can we come back! We hadn't even left place yet.

We were pleased with their seafood for the price. I am gluten free and was able to fill up! My daughter loved the crab legs. Our waitress was attentive and friendly~

My husband and I ate there one evening. We both were sick within 30 minutes of leaving with GI problems. I recovered quicker than he did. Our first day of vacation was ruined.

Overpriced buffet and food was average and service was mechanical. Yes you have crab legs and raw oysters but the food was luke warm. Never again. The a la carte menu was almost as much as the buffet of 31.95 and kids under 11 for 16.95. The menu was listed to a dozen or so items. You couldn't just order... More

The Calabash style of cooking seafood is the specialty cuisine here, but it just seemd like it was boiled or steamed. No special flavors that we could tell. Fun location- right on the harbor, but no big deal.

They had Oysters Rockefeller, Crab Imperial, Shrimp Creole, Crayfish,Stuffed Flounder, Giant King Crab as well as your deep-fried items such as Coconut shrimp, calamari, clams, oysters.

We wanted to try one of the seafood buffets in MB so we chose this one at random. When we were brought in, it was crowded enough -- both with current customers and loaded, dirty tables. Not the greatest first impression. And as we walked by the buffet tables, the food looked alright; not great but alright. That's how the... More
