I saw a seafood buffet youtube recently reviewing a $100 (brunch) and $150 (dinner) seafood lobster buffet in Universal City hotel. Sounds pretty outrageous. It's a miracle anyone can afford to eat out in Southern California restaurants - really a good idea to cook at home most of the time even if you can afford such high prices.

I'm not a big seafood fan. But if I were, considering that I don't think I would do very well at preparing several different seafood dishes and lobster at home simultaneously, and that every time I go out to eat with even one other person, the bill is over $100, this doesn't sound all that outrageous to me.

So tell me again why I should eat at home and avoid the buffet even though I can afford it?

Thats actually a pretty good deal. I have a cousin who was just there and posted some pics on social media. It looks AMAZING!! Considering how much one would normally pay for seafood/lobster, its not a bad deal at all.

I will have to check it out some day - in the meantime we are traveling overseas and I am inquiring about good lobster/seafood buffets - it's not in Los Angeles but 12 time zones away. -)

I love all you can eat places but a Lot cheaper than that.

Have you been to the all you can eat place on Victory across from Best Buy in the same plaza as Nordstrom Rack in Woodland Hills? Been going there now for almost 20 years (even though the name has changed a few times over the years). I think its now called Sumo Asian Buffet and Grill and is a bargain at I believe only $25.00 or so per person for dinner. They dont usually have lobster, but all other seafood is available (crab legs, shrimp, sushi, clams, oysters, etc.). Its not like 5-Star or anything but you cant beat the price and its a good go-to dinner spot.

Prices on everything have skyrocketed since inflation was triggered by a certain President. (Hey, let's give credit, where credit is due.)
My point is....it isn't ONLY food that has tripled in cost. Just wait until your car needs brakes next time....for instance.

Buffets encourage overeating, which is a public health disaster.

Prior to entering a buffet restaurant, customers should be required to step on a scale with automatic denial for anyone overweight.

^^LOL! Reminds me of the late and very overweight comic John Pinette doing his Chinese all you can eat restaurant routine. "You be here four hour! You go now!" When restaurants see him coming they quickly flip the open sign to closed and lock the door.
