We were seated immediately. The food was fresh and hot. I cannot say enough about how well we were treated. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I have absolutely nothing negative to say. Keep up the good work.

Typically, seafood buffet have lots of mediocre food. But everything we tried was delicious. There is a huge variety - items we have not often seen at other buffets. We especially liked the Cajun crab legs and the Norfolk special.
