There are options of main menu and salad bar or not. Seafood was better than expected for slow off night. Salad bar was outstanding.

Went for the special twin lobster tails meals and found it to be as good as advertised. The wait and bar staff were attentive and friendly. We will go back to try the regular menu.

The Philly cheese steak was very very tough. My husband and I could not eat it. The clams were also tough and the soup was not even edible. We left it behind, There were seven of us and everyone liked the crab legs and rolls but otherwise food was horrible. Butter was gross tasting. The waitress server was very good... More

Crab legs were abundant and excellent. Lobster tails were not as large as expected after the waitress had said they were very large, but they weren't tiny either, and were very well cooked (not overcooked as they often are at other places). Butter tasted off - not like real melted butter - more oily. Salad bar was very sparse, but... More

Always in doubt when we choose a restaurant located in a hotel, but Fish Bones was terrific. It was a seafood buffet, reasonably priced, and a true find. Everything we tried was delicious. Oysters, clams, chowder, crab legs, other types of fish, delicious desserts. Yummy. Good service too. And the restaurant had a nice ambiance, something often missing at buffets.... More

Enjoyed dinner on our vacation. My shrimp was obviously prepared on site, did not come from the freezer. Grilled zucchini and yellow squash were a delicious vegetable AND a trip to the salad bar made for great meal.

It was the day before we were leaving and I wanted seafood. What I didn't count on was the hospitality that was shown. The staff had us seated within two minutes, our server was at the table within one minute and the lobster tail arrived within ten minutes. The food was delicious and I even tried sushi for the first... More

If you like seafood, it's there. But it's not particularly special. Fairly average considering the price, which is high. Very small buffet, not a large variety of offerings. Almost no vegetables. Lots of tables squeezed in so its kinda tight too, if you plan to get up and down for buffet. Parking can be rough too.

Undoubtedly the best seafood and raw bar we've found. Raw bar doesn't run out and the service is better than most sit down restaurant (and this is a buffet!) Bravo!!!

we had been warned to avoid the buffets on the boardwalk but did not heed and regretted our choice! The arrived about 7:00 but believe the food was at least 2 hours old. The shrimp was way overcooked and tasted like chalk. The chicken was dry and tasteless. The ONLY decent food were the crab legs. The desserts were even... More
