One of Disney's better buffets - would recommend eating here, but only if on dining plan - not worth the price your would pay if not on dining plan - go around 4:00 or so for dinner to avoid large crowds

We had a dining reservation on May 31. We arrived about 40 min early and we were seated within 5 min of arrival. Parks were busy this week, but I noticed plenty of open tables. The service was good and food quality was really good compared to places like 1900 Park Fare and Crystal Palace. We ate here last Summer and it feels like the buffet options have decreased. Not as many items this time? Not a huge buffet, but not a problem finding a few things the kids liked. The seafood aspect of the buffet is a nice change of pace. I would not pay cash to eat here, but worth a table service credit on dining plan.

Pros:

Great Buffet

Cons:

We ate dinner on June 10th. We were a party of 8. Half of the group were seafood lovers and loved the offerings. Crab Legs were great, clams, mussels, shrimp. Food was hot, fresh and yummy. However, the non-seafood lovers not so much. All of ours were miserable. No Ribs, No real chicken offerings other than legs and thighs either in marinara sauce or fried. This was a definite bust for our group. The chef told us they took Ribs off the buffet about a year ago and apologized. As anything with Disney they tried there best to accommodate the non-seafood lovers, just not much of a selection.

Pros:

Seafood Lovers Will Love It

Cons:

Does not really satisfy the non-seafood eaters

I am allergic to Shell Fish and do not eat any kind of seafood really. DW, DS14, DD10 are seafood lovers and DD7 loves chicken, mashed potatoes and dessert ;)

DW, DS14 and DD10 loved the seafood selection. Crab Legs, Clams, Mussels and Fried Shrimp were their favorites. I thought the salad selections, carving station, potatoes and corn were very good. DD7 loved the kids area and ate plenty of chicken legs, potatoes, corn, mac-n-cheese and pizza. We all enjoyed dessert.

This place has become a must-eat for us especially if we are staying at Beach Club but really is worth it even if staying at another resort. We may try the breakfast next time but would eat dinner here again for sure.

Pros:

Seafood Selection, Carving Station, Desserts

Cons:

Crowded buffet line / awkward layout

Check-in about 20 minutes before our ADR and within five minutes our beeper was going off. This was our fist visit and we WILL BE BACK!!! The service was great, drinks were refilled often, and plates were cleared. The only upsetting thing I saw and it was not Disney's fault was a parent allowing their child to come up to the buffet and get their dessert using their hands and carrying their brownies back to their table in their hands. The hostess gave us some recommendations of this to try.

Pros:

food selection, very friendly, helpful CM

Cons:

parents not monitoring their children at the buffet

I will preface this by saying that I don't care for seafood and that we came here at the request of my son. Having said that, everything that I tried was very good. There wasn't a ton to choose from, but if you like seafood, my family says that it was really good! The desserts have a definite lack of variety for a buffet, but made up for it in quality. I would return.

Pros:

food

Cons:

lack of variety in some areas

We ate here Oct 3 and had a delicious dinner. The food was hot, fresh, and plentiful. My husband ate his weight in steamed clams. The thing that left a bad taste in my mouth was that a family near us had a child that screamed for 45 minutes and management didn't ask them to take the child out. It was so bad a family near us had a little girl that kept her hands over her ears because the screeching was hurting them.

Pros:

Great food

Cons:

Just got back on Sept 28th. This was our second time at Cape May. We go there for the crab legs. If you don't like seafood, this is not the buffet for you. I do feel like it wasn't as good as the first time, but it was still ok. I would go back because of the crab legs. I will say we got our moneys worth. Even the waitress commented and laughed with us about it. She had to keep emptying my husbands crab bucket. If you want to pig out on seafood, this is the place. I do have to say the chowder was to die for.!!!! I had almost 3 bowls. It is expensive, but ok if on dining plan. Rest of food ok.....typical for buffet food. Service was pretty good.

Pros:

all you can eat crab legs, seafood, chowder

Cons:

expensive

We ate here on Oct 10 and overall enjoyed the meal. We were put in the room to the right as you enter the restaurant. At first I was not happy with the location but then once we went up to get our food I thought better of it. We were out of the crowd and the hustle and bustle and it was quieter eating. Next time I will ask for that room.

My husband always liked their spareribs that they did not have this time. He felt that they did not have as much to choose from. I was content with the food...all the seafood makes me happy. The cod I sort of tripped over since they had it in small pieces in the kid' meal section. I'm sure many people missed it.

Their salads are always good and were again this time. Their soup was delicious but I passed on the carrot soup.

Our waitress was not very friendly. I know they are very busy in here but that is not the fault of the customers. Usually the staff is friendly, at least from our experience. She also was very slow to come to our table.

We will however go back on one of our next trips to the World.

Pros:

Cons:

Less options
