Buccaneer Review

Imagine you're in a sunken ship where sharks, barracudas, and grouper swim past the (rectangular) portholes. That's what you can find at Buccaneer, a restaurant dominated by a 10,000 gallon aquarium and where each table has its own individual aquarium. The chefs prepare passable but not especially noteworthy fare. The catch of the day is usually a safe bet. The interior and exterior theme park feel and kitsch makes this place great for those with kids but may prove to be a bit too much for those without. The restaurant has been operating for over 30 years and participates in AGA's Dine-Around program.

    Valentine dinner

    Our all over experience of the Buccaneer is 100%. We were happy to finally see that Buccaneer took reservations on line. From the moment we stepped into the Buccaneer on Valentines Day we were excited. The wait was long but becuase we had reservations we had a table waiting for us facing the large aquariums. The turtle's astonished us. We were greeted within a minute, water in pewter glass served and menu. We could not believe the extensive menu entrees and were happy with our choices. Fruits of the 7 seas and Escargot as our appetizer, 2 ceasar salads, Chefs special of the day " Tenderloin topped with garlic prawn and Surf & Turf with our favorite wine (total dinner under $80.00 for 2). We have to say oz for oz- $$ for $$ we were 100% satisfied with our first dinner experience at Buccaneer. For anyone who has been reading bad reviews please do me a favor don't listen, try for yourself. We did and are happy to finally see for ourselves.
