Crab legs where the best item on the buffet. Steamed clams and oysters where good. The variety of foods at the buffet was amazing. I didn't try all the items.

Too pricey. Typical buffet food with a great assortment of seafood. Everything was fresh and hot. The staff was very friendly.

A huge buffet with a lot of dishes to choose from. Everything I ate was fresh and warm. Crab legs were tasty. A little pricey but that is typical for a seafood buffet when you have so many items to choose from.

Great variety. Crab legs were great. The kids had plenty to choose from. Family friendly. Go to dinner around 4 pm for a lower rate (found this to be true with most restaurants in the area)

Never seen BOGO but we got a discount based on the time we went. Buffet was okay... can't say I'd go back. The crab legs were super salty too.
