What was once a venerable Maryland institution is now a tourist eatery that sacrifices quality for volume. My last two visits have been this way. Six of us visited on 5/5/17. The host was personable and friendly, as was the waitress...no problems with service here....More

Great seafood bar and salad bar. Crab legs were OK. Nothing more. They were tasty but very small....not a problem because you can eat 10,000 of them. Overall very good. Great variety of seafood included in the buffet. I would definitely go back.

Food was absolutely fabulous, there were 10 of us and everyone loved it. Drinks were good too. They were a little understaffed but understandable by the time of year. Just a little slow but I'd go back in a heartbeat!

We ate in the buffet portion of the restaurant. You can eat ala carte or buffet there. They offer a very wide selection on the buffet, seafood, salads, desserts, dessert bar and a children meal bar.
