I was very disappointed this time, both with the sushi bar and the hot foods. The restaurant was not at all busy! I usually go for the cooked sushi, it has been marvelous in the past. The choices the evening we went were sparse!

My family came from out of state. We had lunch at Ocean Buffet, in Ocala, FL. In my opinon the prices were great and a lot to choose from the lunch Buffett. I like sushi & what I liked was not readily available.

We have been to this buffet several times, and the problem is always the same. They do not keep up with the demand for the oysters on the 1/2 shell. I stood by the empty tray, then spoke to a server, then to the man...More

This place was beyond terrible. Everytime you went passed the kitchen you got the distinct smell of urine. If that wasn't bad enough, the food was cold and rancid! Telling the server did no good, they do not care. We told how terrible the food...More

Google the restaurant and it should tell you, or call them. I ate there and it was not over the weekend, so no idea.

I think lunch is around eight dollars...dinner closer to twelve. It gets strong mixed reviews-- folks love it or hate it. I found the food just mediocre. The service was poor. If you go, I hope the experience is wonderful... More
