Our server was fabulous, a true pro. On the food front, the crab stuffed mushroom appetizer was really delicious and the Black Russian dessert was excellent.
However, my mahi mahi entree was not very flavorful and my husband's pork tenderloin was sub-par. I was surprised as they are known for their seafood and the tenderloin was one of the specials listed for the evening.
Last, we asked for a table with a view of the ocean. We got there an hour before sunset, so that worked out very nicely. In the final analysis, I'd say this place is about the view and the buffet, the latter of which we didn't order because we don't "do" buffets.

Best Thanksgiving buffet in OC MD!
Our family has been doing the Thanksgiving buffet and the Easter brunch for 6 years in a row. The staff is always super friendly and the food is great, plus there is such a great variety of food. We use these holidays as a mini vacation to get away and relax! I would definitely recommend to give it a try one year...........no cooking, no cleaning and no family drama!

Highlight of the Trip!
a very good experience on a 3-day trip that had few. the weather 2 0f three was horrible; the crowd from the convention were rude, crude and unwelcome (narcotics anonymous I think). they tried to take over the entire community it seemed to me, but the experience here was a welcome reprieve. thanks to all. we will return Lord willing (but not when that group comes to town again!!!!!)

The food selection and quality
The food selection and quality was outstanding with a fantastic staff that pampered you
with outstanding service. All staff made you feel as though you were the only table to be waited on and had a most pleasant warm attitude. The ambiance was quite quaint but also gave you the feeling that you were in a five star restaurant found in a major city as in Philadelphia or New York. My compliments to the staff and supervisors for making the night
a rememberable evening on my sixty second birthday!

My Wife and I found this to be a pretty nice buffet. They added a pasta bar which I beleive makes them competative with the other buffets in the area. I would recommend this to others.

Best Legs on the Beach
I've been a Crab Leg fanatic for over 30 years now. I've eaten 'legs' all over the country and over seas. The snow crab legs served at Horizon's are one of the best I've tasted. They serve them cold and hot, both of which are equally deliciious. The spiced shrimp was cooked to perfection and peeled instantly. The Prime Rib was incredible! The carver alloted me a 3/4" slab that was the best I have enjoyed in years. We dined looking out of a wall of windows on the beach and ocean enjoying the natural beauty and ambience that only mother nature can provide. If you go to OC, MD and plan to dine out then you must inlclude Horizon's in your plans. You will not be dissapointed and you will leave satisfied with memories that will last a lifetime.

Good choice for seafood buffet
Our first time at this restaurant, located within the clarion fountainebleau hotel, it was a great choice, not necessarily cheap, at $36 plus all taxes, not included alcoholic beverages, this is about the standard price at any buffet in OC, food was great, plenty of choices, view to die for, will do it again.

The all you can eat seafood buffet was enjoyable...namely the king crab legs. For the price $ 35.99 steamed clams would've finished it out nicely.

Day trip to the beach
The service was outstanding. Even though I didn't get the seat by the window I requested, I could still see ocean from our seats. There was a variety of food and deserts. I was truly impressed. A must do every year.

Fantastic food especially the crab legs, oysters, and melt in your mouth prime rib

Superb food, service and view
From the time we walked in,we felt like we were the only ones there. The hostess was pleasant & efficient, the waitress was very professional and attentive, the decor of the restaurant was very warm and inviting and most if all the food and drinks were divine!

BEST SOFT CRABS EVER!!
The Restaurant and Hotel are old favorites. State agencies and garden clubs book oodles of symposiums at the Clarion. We ordered off the menu - soft crabs was one of the specials. Juicy, ample, baked potatoe and veggie. Not fancy, just delicious.

If you like Surf n Turf
This is the place to go when you are in Ocean City, Maryland.

This was a great buffet for the price. Can't beat eggs made to order for omelets and fresh made belgian waffles. The entire spread was a nice selection and the options are suitable for most people. Price also included beverages, which was great!!

Best Buffet in Ocean City
This is definately the BEST Buffet in Ocean City! A little pricey but well worth it! Mounds and Mounds of Hot or Cold Crab Legs, prime rib that falls apart and so many other things to choose from! I tried all the buffets in town and this one still tops the list! I drove 165 miles just to come back this year and eat at this buffet!

Good food at a great price
Four of us went for the 50% off dinner special. All had the crab cakes except one. Everyone loved their food (except me). I've had the crabcake before and just wondered if it wasn't the "Asian" crab meat this time. The other 3 will order crabcakes again. I will probably try something else. One had the Orange Roughy Chesapeake and thought it was good also. Since it was a Monday evening, it was not at all busy and we sat by the window and had a great view of the ocean.

A Great Place
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone/everyone that is visiting the Ocean City area or for any special occasion or if they live in the area.

The food was pretty good.
The food was pretty good. I have had better crab cakes in many places but these were ok. The shrimp appetizer wrapped in bacon was excellent.
The restaurant was almost empty but I had to get up twice and get the water pitcher to fill our glasses. The dinner came before our salads and they never brought our second glass of wine. The server was friendly but there were too many mistakes.
The fruit pie dessert was out of this world.
All in all we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Will definitely return.
