Food was excellent!! I'm not sure why the bad reviews! Being from Louisiana, I was actually impressed the lobster & crab was as tasty as it was. I will say, add a couple of lemon wedges to your plate and sprinkle on you lobster for that succulent flavor you may be looking for. The clams, fish, calamari, & scallops were... More

They sell a Nova Scotia lobster. Very good eating. Be sure to dig deep in the pan for the ones still sitting in hot water. They are very tasty and still very warm. If you take from the top they have cooled off and are a little tough. If you are looking for gourmet lobster this is not your place.... More

Overall the buffet was small but if you are a lobster and crableg eater then you will definitely love this place. You literally could eat as many lobsters and crablegs that you wanted. There was fried shrimp, clams, baked fish, oysters, craw fish, and a few other seafood items. The salad bar was small and there were a few side... More

It is crab legs and small lobsters. I would not go again but it was fine. The waitress was really nice and worked hard. The lobsters are very small but you can eat as many as you want, the crab legs were good. The place was a little cold so the butter and crab got cold fast. Don't over expect... More

Terrible! High priced! Soggy lobster. The waiter sweated all over food while cracking lobster. I'm surprised it's remained in business.

Well we were shocked at the $40 a person, however we did go ahead and eat the buffet, it was about 8ft long including the salad bar, everything looked as if it had been setting on the bar for hours. The lobsters were ok, however out of 4 they were all females and them full of eggs wasn't good. The... More

My 2 sisters and I ate there while on a mini-vacation. The coleslaw was soured, the salad was room temp, and this is just the beginning. The fried seafood had NO flavor, the crablegs looked the had been scrapped off someone elses plate and the lobster was like eating a rubbereraser(which might have had more flavor. Then to charge 40.00is... More

Don't go! Total cost for 3 $140 and change, then there was the tip. Buffet is very small. The only green veggie is salad. Lobster, oysters, scallops sit on that buffet and over-cook! No seasoning. The snow crab was good, but it's not worth that much money!! Take my word for it, PLEASE, we are from Louisiana. We eat and... More
