    Pretty expensive, but you can eat all you want at this buffet. Great atmosphere and you get to take a photo with the captain. Did I mention they have some addictive hush puppies? Yummmmy!

    If you're not a big seafood person, don't waste your time. Everything is mediocre at best.

    Incredible selection and food. Best seafood place there is. It's expensive for a reason. Value is only there if you eat a lot.

    Avoid the nice person near the door as you exit. He/she is trying to get you to do a timeshare tour.

    Well it's ok if you like buffet seafood, if you are expecting red lobster or better quality try elsewhere.

    Make sure you're appropriately dressed. The pirate at the front door refused to let a woman in because she was only wearing a t-shirt and bikini bottoms. Pants are a good thing, y'all!

    Their hush puppies are to die for but hold off on it until the end of your buffet. Come after 6pm if you don't like the hustle and bustle of the crowd.

    We came here for crab legs and hush puppies and were not disappointed! Crab legs are fresh and well-cooked (though some were dryish) and the hush puppies were amazing. Rest of the bar is bland but yum
