You’ll see more nods to the theme in the color scheme and other design elements, like this wave-inspired arch.


The buffet is in a central location, so you can get up for more food throughout your meal.

In general, there is something for everyone at this reopened buffet. We’re a little sad that the crab legs aren’t bottomless (like they used to be), but we really enjoyed our dinner and our experience here!
