I have been going to this seafood buffet since it started many years ago. I was always impressed despite the yearly price increases. Initially it had unlimited lobsters and was less than $40 per person - fantastic deal. As the price increased, the management limited the lobsters to 1 per person. The buffet food has always been very good and they used to let you take a lobster home if you didn't get to it during your meal. Then there was this year. The price is now $70 per person. The buffet is 1/2 the size it used to be and the lobster you get is a 1/2 lobster ( maybe a 1 lb lobster ) that is filled with bay scallops and tiny shrimp in a cream sauce. I was less than impressed. There was a total of 4 of us that night, we did not add any alcohol to our bill and it was $300 without the tip. We were all disappointed and sadly will not be returning after at least 10 years of attending this event.

We were so delighted the seafood buffet was coming back to the Seaview. The additional cost was of no consequence and we were looking forward to a scrumptious dinner . Unfortunately we were very disappointed. Most of the selection was good. However, in our opinion , the Alaskan Crab Legs were of low quality; extremely watery and tasteless. Our experience based on previous years was quite a harsh let down. I don't think we'll be coming back.

I used to go to the Thursday night Seafood Buffet several times a year. It was $45 pp in 2016 and has been slowing going up in price since. Now it’s $70 pp and the quality has gone down significantly. We will not be going back.

You no longer get a full lobster, only a half lobster thays stuffed. The stuffing is made of scallops the size of mini marshmallows and tiny little shrimp. It was disgusting and the baking of the dish causes the lobster meat to shrivel and become nearly impossible to remove from its shell.

The main dining room has been somewhat updated and the dessert table is the same. The crab cakes were as good as ever but its remoulade was way too spicy. The crab legs were hit or miss. They used to all be huge, but half of the batch were very tiny. You had to wait until they refilled them to pick through and get some of the big legs.

The scallops are now served one at a time on a bed of smoked corn that overpowers the flavor of the scallops. Who serves scallops at a buffet one at a time?! The mussels were okay, but on the small side. Most of the clams were closed, but the cooks didn’t even notice. The lobster bisque is now gone and has been replaced by a boring gazpacho. I don’t eat meat, but it looked okay. Several times I had to tell staff they were out of something.

The drinks were overpriced - 7-9 for a domestic draft beer and the wine and mixed drinks start at $12. Our lobsters took more than an hour because the kitchen didn’t have enough. The whole thing was a big disaster. Save yourself the time and money and go to one of the casino buffets instead.

Stopped for Sunday brunch on our way home from a visit to Atlantic City. Staff was extremely accommodating and the food was very good. Elegant atmosphere with a piano player. Free valet parking with brunch. We were glad we decided to go there instead of one of the casinos for brunch.

Tried the Seafood Buffet without first checking the price. While there was plenty of food, and some was very good, the overall value for $70 per person was sorely lacking at that price. In particular, for that price I might have expected peeled shrimp. Instead, my average size u-peel shrimp was actually bad: tasteless and soggy. I ate two pieces just to be sure...I would normally make almost a full meal of good shrimp. The mid-sized crab cakes were the best entree selection I could find. There a large assortment of very tasty desserts. At $45 per person, I would be taking a large party next week, as I have family in town. At $70, not a chance. I have a basis of comparison...4 years ago I was very delighted with the over all value received when I hosted my daughter’s wedding at Seaview...the guests raved at the food and I felt I paid well, but fairly. Not so with he Seafood buffet I am sorry to say. I will give credit to the friendly and courteous staff who made our evening enjoyable, if not satisfactory from a value perspective.

Love Seaview Sunday Brunch and Holiday Buffets - always a special dining experience. I was concerned that, under new owner/management, things might change and not for the better. However, that is not the case. Still wonderful. Please keep up the good work.

I have always truly loved the Seaview Sunday brunch buffet.
It has been a timeless classic with impeccable service, elegant and luxurious ambiance, and a stunning array of finely cooked dishes and desserts to accompany the breakfast items.
They just renovated the lobby and dining room turning this beautiful victorian setting to modern contemporary.
No more do linen table cloths cover the tables, no more fine dining ambiance, no more intimacy, no more impeccable care and service, and the food is decidedly and sadly more pedestrian than EVER before.
They moved the piano player out into the lobby!!!
They sat us out of order, we checked in 15 min early, yet they opened 25 min late!!!
Then they began seating folks who were just walking in, forgetting that there were about 25 people waiting already!!! Lots of upset people, complaints abounded.
The service was very slow, as if they had never done this before!!!
The food, sadly, was not up to standards. The cutting station was understaffed, the same guy making omelettes had to cover both the frying pans and cut meats. The omelettes were dry and he seemed very overwelmed. He was panicking clearly. The desserts were lackluster, a tray of cream puffs were frozen inside!!! And, get this....A SUNDAY BUFFET BRUNCH WITHOUT ANY, YES ANY BREAD ITEMS!!!!
I had to request a slice of bread, the server asked if a bagel would be ok, To which I replied a bagel would be incredible however there are none available for any of these customers to dine on!!!! He then disappeared, and came back a few minutes later with too mini bagels that he had scavenged from somewhere in the back!!!! At a brunch buffet?????!!!!
Ive been coming here for the incredible Seaview Sunday brunch for 20 years, and, sadly....this was NOT THAT!!!
Im truly disappointed, saddened , and upset.

While we had a great time and our server was fantastic, the food was not as good as in the past. We went to the seafood buffet on Thursday with brunch on the following Sunday. The seafood buffet was fantastic! Saw too many repeats or what seemed like repurposed leftovers at the brunch. Was also disappointed that the brunch did not have a pasta station.

I have enjoyed dining at Seaview for 3 years. There seems to be less seafood this year and the crab legs were not as large as in the past. I was extremely upset when our waiter told us that we had to pay in cash because their credit card machine was not working. Their ATM was not compatible with my bank so I was charged a fee to withdraw cash. Not a good way to end an evening!

Went for a special occasion. Enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent. The only improvement needed was their desserts. The tasting size was fine as then one could try several. The issue was they were not worth the calories. Little flavor. The one exception would be the peach/blueberry cobbler.

Went for the seafood buffet. The crab legs were small and always needed refilling, deserts ran out and were not replenished. The shrimp were watery , flavorless and had to be peeled. Crabcakes were good and the scallops very good. Very good service.

We have been planning to try the Thursday night Seafood buffet for over a year! When we realized that it worked out to be on our Anniversary, we thought that it would be the perfect setting! The seafood buffet was excellent, the carving station with prime rib and scallops was wonderful, the salad buffet was fresh and had more seafood choices, the tableside lobster was a treat, and the key lime tartlets were the best finish! Although the drive from our home was three hours, it was worth the trip! Our travel home was much faster and we saw a beautiful sunset as well! We will definitely be back!

We had been wanting to try the seafood buffet on Thursday nights for quite some time; having gone to the breakfast buffets many times, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. the reviews for the seafood buffet were somewhat mixed but we went ahead and decided to do a friend's 60th birthday party there.
not enough staff was the main observation.. everything from cocktails, lobsters to Coffee took at least a half an hour to 45 minutes after requested. The displays are not overly extravagant ..I believe they order what they think they will need.. what there was was well-prepared there were snow crab legs, oysters on the half shell ,peel and eat shrimp, swordfish in a pineapple sauce which I did not care for prime rib assorted sides no potatoes ..the Cajun Crawfish cold salad was very good the crab claws were small but good.. the soup was some kind of seafood bisque I believe they use fish stock so it had a fishy undertone didn't care for that . a little surprised that there were no clams on the half shell.. at $59 a person I was not wowed service was a big factor just not enough servers.. I was somewhat embarrassed and went to the podium to voice my concerns we will not be doing the seafood buffet again nor will any of our party.

We had a 1:30 reservation for Father's Day. The food was cold and the last of the day. There wasn't anyone behind the carving station and waffle station. We essentially had cold leftovers. A few pieces of food in each of the hot entres. Some of the desserts were empty. The service was good. Was supposed to be a special day. I was apologizing to my family for recommending the brunch.
