We always hit a buffet on our vacation and this one is very nice. Good choices, clean, friendly staff. Crab legs were a bit salty. Staff takes your pic on the way in for a suvenior that cost $10.

At the award-winning Giant Crab Seafood Restaurant, quantity takes a back seat to quality. We offer the freshest, best-tasting seafood buffet in town. From the minute you see The Giant Crab, you know it’s not just another all-you-can-eat seafood buffet. Sure, it specializes in serving seafood, but it does so in such tremendous, really, “giant” fashion with an emphasis on freshness. A steadfast and diligent crew keeps the buffet well-stocked and, you guessed it, fresh.
