    The popcorn shrimp and crab legs were good. It was expensive. You need to come hungry! A lot of the food was cold but the staff was pretty nice. The desserts could have been better.

    Largest selection of food in the area. Greatest service! Long wait times, but the lines do move fast for the amount of people.

    Good was ok. The food was not hot. The answering machine said $27.99 but it was really $31.99. Hush puppies were great. Not worth the $$. Go to Captain Georges!!

    One of the best all you can eat seafood places in the area. Place gets extremely busy at dinner so I highly advise go before 4pm. Bring coupon from monster coupon book!!!

    Quite the experience. Soooo much to choose from but most is subpar quality food. Come for the crab legs.

    Call first. Long drive, tired and hungry, we searched for places open a little later. Benjamin's lists a closing time of 10:30, but the Pirate turned us, and at least 6 other parties away @ 9-9:15.Ugh

    Pricey but good food overall . Crab legs a hit. If you are not a seafood fan seemed to have great buffet variety to suit most desires! Hush puppies great! Our waiter was very personable and helpful. M

    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 else 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.

    Wonderful environment. Very crowded. Not for agoraphobics. Ask for Becky if possible.

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

  • Troy S.

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

    Troy Scott · January 1, 2014
  • Christy J.

    Avoid the prime rib (it's tough as leather) but the crab legs are amazing!!

    (4*) $29.99 adults $12.99 kids. Best buffet in MB! Come hungry!! If you want 5* seafood dishes without the buffet atmosphere head up to the "Flying Fish" at Barefoot Landing. (Shoes Required)

    Really friendly and helpful staff! Great waiter (who seemed to magically appear with napkins the moment our son spilled his juice). Very family friendly!

    Go early so you won't have to fight to get a park or wait in long line. Love the crab legs!!! Everything was delicious!! Key lime pie for dessert - fantabulous!!

    Great buffet for competitive prices! Even the pickiest eaters can find stuff they love here!

    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!

    Eat your weight in crab legs.

    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
