Barb just wrote about this in one of her recent columns.

Great view of the water. The food is great.

They have one of the best Sunday brunch buffets. It may be pricey for some (I think it was $29 a person), but it was one of the best I've ever had.

You can't beat the view, from whatever seat you have.

My take on the Sunday Brunch...disappointing. This place, with it's million dollar view of San Diego Bay, serves up mediocre fare on its Brunch offering. For what it is, where it is, and what you pay, it does not deliver the expected value. Scrambled eggs had an finishing taste of seafood, their version of roasted potatoes should deliver something roasted, and the carved beef was not savory. Many entrees seem to all have a undercurrent of the same flavor, like everything was cooked in the same skillet (this trait seems to be a theme with many Chinese buffets). It's not all negative; the fried mahi was nice, the salmon wellington was good, the fellas cooking your omelet to order couldn't go wrong, and that bayside view makes you forget that weird taste you got from the scrambled eggs. But for what you pay, and at a premium location, it should ALL be good...
