“Nice little restaurant on the beach”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Good menu, good service, great views. Tuesday night is special grill night, and the lobster was wonderful! Everything about the Buccaneer Resort is perfection.

“Not Impressive - mediocre service”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

My wife and I ate at this restaurant twice. One time we had salads, which were quite good, aind the second time sandwiches. I had the steak sandwich, which was good, and my wife had the Brie sandwich, which was repellant. We told the waitress and she stared at us for a minute and could only offer, "some people like it." Overall the service was very poor. She didn't offer to take another order for my wife and spent a lot of time standing around, not looking at us when it came time to pay the check. The first time the service was better, but still slow and not especially good. The atmosphere is nice, it's on the beach, but unless you are already at the Buccaneer and desperate, I'd pass.

“The one night a week for dinner-don't do it!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

They made an attempt to offer a seafood buffet with beachside serving and entertainment with fire dancers. The $35 per person charge is way to much for what they serve. Not everything was horrible. But certainly was cold, due to being served outside. There was chicken served also, but only dark meat. The service was not so great. But if you don't want to leave the resort, just order room service. It will be less expensive.

“Beachside dining under a roof”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Great selection of lunch fare, open from 11am to 5pm, which is a shame because it would be a great place to have dinner! You are right on Mermaid Beach. Service was really good, food yummy.

“Perfect location for lunch”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

The location--right on a gorgeous beach at the Buccaneer hotel is why people go here. And most recently the food has been much better. We had the steak salad and the caribbean chicken salad and two planter punches and it was really very good. The service was excellent which isn't usually the case here. We also had the flatbread veggie pizza--and it was ok, not crispy like it should have been. But the location will keep us coming back time and again. We eat lunch then we lounge in the chairs on the beach and swim. It's perfection. Honestly I don't even care what I eat--
