Because it is the closest seafood restaurant to us, we have given Wilkerson's several chances. Their buffet is not very appetizing, and is very limited, especially for the price. The best meal we had there was not from the buffet, but there are other restaurants...More

Not sure how they have the nerve to charge 30.00 for their buffet. There are about five bland fried seafood items, over cooked steam shrimp and muscles. View is nice, service was good but it hurt to pay 68.00 for this meal. Won't be back.

I met several girlfriends for lunch here recently. It was early on a weekday, and we were the first customers. We were seated quickly and two baskets of hot hushpuppies arrived, they were good! We decided to get a dozen steamed crabs. The crabs arrived...More
