Plenty of good food, including crab legs at no additional cost. Early bird discount prices with coupon help out the cost. I always get my monies worth but my wife doesn't eat a lot so she doesn't like these big buffets. If you want good seafood and crab legs, and plenty of it, this is the place to go.

Wait staff pleasant. We only eat seafood here. Much better than the seafood buffets up on Restaurant Row. Worth the drive down to Surfside. Coupon in... More

This is definitely the place to go if you want all you can eat crab legs. The waiters keep clean plates on the table and the legs are fresh. I've been to many ayce places but this one has the freshest crab at the beach. Also, try out the she-crab soup. There is only one other place at the beach... More

Get there early for dinner as they do not take reservations. Place is huge so the wait time is short. Awesome buffet dishes from crab legs to prime roast beef. Huge salad bar and lots of warm dishes to chose from. Pricey but worth going at least once.

I asked a few residents to recommend there favorite buffet in town and this was it. Me and my wife enjoyed the large amount of choices in food. My favorite: fried oysters and catfish. Me and the wifes negatives: The prime rib was tough and a few deserts of the deserts need improvement.
