Mother's Day Fort Lauderdale

I am looking for a restaurant for Mother's Day. My favorite was the buffet brunch at Charley's Crab in Fort Lauderdale, but they have changed to sit-down menu. Any recommendations for a buffet (hopefully under $30/ a person) in the area? Thank you.

  1. We're doing the buffet at Blue Moon in Coral Springs on mother's day. I'm not sure if the one on the water in Ft.Lauderdale will be under $30; but it shouldn't be much more if it is. If you like the one at Charlie's Crab, you should enjoy Blue Moon. Hopefully, it isn't fully booked already.

      Is Blue Moon Sunday brunch better than the restaurant on the Riverwalk (River Cafe I believe)?

        Sorry, but I couldn't say as I've only eaten dinner at the River House (I think that's the restaurant you mean) one time; so can't make brunch comparisons; however, both have their brunch menus on-line, and as you can see by reviewing them, it appears the brunch at the River House is more extensive than Blue Moon. Comparing the dinners I've had at each, I personally prefer the food at Blue Moon. Also, while it can be pleasant dining outside on the river walk, I think eating alongside the water at Blue Moon is just a bit nicer.

          I just read a thread on how Blue Moon was overrated, disappointing and expensive. Can anyone whose been there recently comment?

            I've been there twice in the past 4 months - it was excellent both times. Good view, great food. Expensive, but not insanely so.
