My family and I love getting together for special occasions over brunch, and this time we were blown away. It has been quite a while since we have dined at CI's..which we had in our minds as comparable to Anthony's or Salty's but dated and a little distressed. Boy, were we in for a pleasant surprise. Not only were we able to get reservations within an hour on OpenTable, they easily accomodated our request for a high chair. The restaurant has had a remodel in the recent years and sparkles with technology and comfortable elegance.The buffet spread was beautiful, well maintained, themed and plentiful! The server- full of information, polite and always had our drinks refilled (rarely seen done so well when the refills are FREE...Im talking champagne here people!) Every kitchen staff manning the buffet was as polite and outgoing as the front of house. Manager was on the floor, easy to be seen and congenial. She definitely had a smooth running ship. The food...oh my, the food. AMAZING. Themed Carribbean food, fresh shucked oysters, and crepes were just a few of our favorites. You know when you go to a buffet, fill your plate and eat half because it isnt always what you had expected? Not here. Not a bite goes to waste with this food! And to top it off, when the bill came we were shocked!.....at how little we paid. $21.99 for adults and 9.99 for kids....that included all non-alcohol beverages, all refillable and an amazing $2 champagne/mimosa with free refills. We were so thrilled at this newly shined diamond in the rough. I cant wait to try out dinner again sometime too! We enjoyed the Lobster Shop a few weeks back, but Shenanigans is above and beyond!
Pros: Must try the Creme Brulee! Everything is beyond exceptional
Cons: None. Sunday perfection!
