If you go hungry here it is only your own fault. Surf and turf, seafood, and comfort food galore! Atmosphere feels like you are eating on a pier out on the ocean. Definitely a must when in town!

We have been here many times. It has always been good and this year did not disappoint. There’s something for everyone. It’s very busy and around $35 per adult but that is comparable to the other buffets around

My answer is the same as Abby's. $34 for the buffet and lots of options other than seafood. I'm not a big fan either. And they do have a menu.
