We enjoyed some great 'Crab Imperial' at a buffet near Norfolk, VA some years back.  I did not keep notes nor photos of that ride, so maybe someone has a memory of the place... It was not in Williamsburg, but headed down to Norfolk/ VA Beach from W-burg...

    On our family vacations to Rehoboth Beach, DE we almost always made a trip down to Ocean City to enjoy a seafood meal at Phillips ( http://phillipsseafood.com/ ).  So, when Phillips took over the old Flagship restaurant on the Washington, DC Maine Ave. Pier we had to visit.  It was and still is a buffet.  After a quick survey of the buffet and the "scene" we turned and left for a decent a la carte seafood meal at Bish Thompson's in Bethesda.

    Aside from enjoying #10 cocktail shrimp at a swanky brunch, we don't "do" seafood buffets:  too much chance for something happening.
    Hey Jim...my family also took vacation trips to Rehoboth and Fenwick Island. We also visited the Flagship (one of our faves, BEFORE Phillip's took it over. Phillips used to be great, but now only use crab meat from SE Asia. What a travesty for a Baltimore based company. You might enjoy this article.

    Hate to think it, but their shrimp are probably farmed in some cesspool in Thailand!

      There still are a number of Todai clones in Plano, such as Japan House on Plano Pkwy and Osaka Sushi on Park.

          Years ago in Virginia I had a colleague who had some 'bad sushi' in WDC and got a vision-threatening bacterial infection in his eyes.  For several tense years he had to make a weekly trek up to the Wilmer Institute at Hopkins to stabilize his condition.  The only good news for him was he got to eat often at Charm City's legendary 'Little Italy' places and crabhouses. 
           
          Sushi has never passed my lips; after his horrid experience I would even pass on a free meal at Nobu!
           
          -----------------
           
          We have several such places in McKinney, too.  Wouldn't touch them with a stick.  If this makes me a provincial hick, so be it; I confess!

            The best seafood buffet I ever had was in North Springfield Vt some years ago
            Don't remember the name ,but heard it burned down
             Also the old Highland Hotel in Springfield Mass. served the best lobster dishes
