Great staff. Dale our server was excellent. He was available while still taking care of all his tables. Since it was the offseason it wasn't super busy but still full.

If you can't find it on the buffet at this place you don't want it. Their selection is excellent and so is the quality of what they serve from seafood to steaks. Deserts are pretty good too.

Buffet is now $35 per person, not matter if you eat Crab or not. That's $35 for a bland buffet of fried Shrimp, Ham, Salmon and Chicken. They don't come back for refills if you ordered water. So for 2 people you bill is $75...More

I believe it depends on their age. If you give the restaurant a call they are very friendly and should be able to better answer. My party had 5 kids in it all various ages.
