We ate here on the 18th of June(Fathers Day) It was the best meal we ever had at the beach. Everything was good from the crab legs to the ice-cream. May have been because of the day but WOW. Great place to eat.

I do not write many reviews but had to share our experience eating here. The price is outrageous so do not attempt to go without a coupon. There was hardly anything edible on the bar and we are not picky eaters. The service was fine...More

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.
