Excellent Lobster, Good Value

The second time I drove in on a Friday I believe, one of the days that the Lobster all-u-can-eat buffet is put on, remembered the billboard and stopped in.
The lobster was excellent and cannot be beat for the price. The lobster sizes are nothing spectacular, medium at best, but the quality was excellent. As for the rest of the buffet it was nothing too spectacular. I thought the Peppermill was better for an overall experience, however it had a decent selection with good overall quality.
I believe the price was in the $25-30 range and the servers/chefs barely batted an eyebrow when you went up and asked them to load up the lobsters 2 or 3 at a time.
This was my first experience anywhere with an all-u-can-eat whole lobster buffet, however it would be hard to top. If you love lobster, you definately need to check this one out.
