BAD NEWS Seafood Buffet at The BOAT CLUB goes quick. It isn't endless. One time a busload of 38 cleaned it out in less than 1/2 an hour. Don't expect any service. Tried this buffet four different months with different friends and family - ALWAYS IGNORED BY WAITRESSES. Is there a manager out there? Got our own silverware. Got our own water refills. Had to beg for a bill every single time I went there. Not going back.
THE UGLY.. Waitresses seem to pick who they want to serve -- people with Rolexes, flashy diamond earrings, a local state Senator and give the flash folks lots and lots of service. People wearing blue jeans without Zircon studs or a Carhardt cap are invisible to the snobby Boat Club staff.
It's VERY NOISY. Menu items are very pricey with small portions. After the sun sets you're paying thru the teeth for menu items and getting NO SERVICE.
