Good buffet

lots of food types and choices. Has good Chinese but isn't limited to that as there is seafood, pizza and sliders. Lunch is about 15 a person but there are many choices to please everyone.

There are times when you are with family and friends and majority rules when it comes to where everyone wants to eat. This was one of those times as not only did I not want Chinese food, I certainly did not want it buffet style. I made my case; cited how far down the line the reviews put this restaurant... More

We have went here several times, but I now notice that every time I go to pay the check, the server literally "waits" for it so they can see what kind of tip they are getting. First of all, news flash- this is extremely rude. This past Saturday I went with my fiancée and left tip that complied with the... More

Used to go here about once a week. Nothing special, just a typical Chinese buffet. They raised the price high for what it was but we still kept going because the location was convenient. Our last trip there two of my family members had the octopus and on our 3 minute drive home the both became violently ill vomiting. About... More

One of the Largest Chinese Buffets I have been to...A very, very large selection of items as well as a dessert & salad bar. If you arrive at dinner time on the weekend it may be crowded, but I saw that the food is always replenished and kept full & hot (except for the Crab legs, which always seemed to... More

We read other reviews and they were, meh, but what others failed to mention was that this place should be shut down! We spend $80 (plus tips) for a family of 5. 2 Adults, 1 pre-teen and 2 small children. Okay, so we are going to spend on vacation, but this place was not worth $80. There was a strong... More

This is just a typical China Buffet nothing special. The place needs some updating. Tiles falling off the walls that are tapes on, wallpaper coming up, bathrooms need fixing, needs paint. Place just seemed a little dirty. The food was ok. I really was craving crab Rangoon but they didn't have anywhere. What Chinese buffet doesn't have crab Rangoon. I've... More

The salt and pepper crabs were out of this world. l am from Baltimore, and grew up eating crabs in everyway imaginable, or so I thought. The salt... More

The place for a quick lunch or dinner. Quality is still good and I have been going here for a number of years, off and on. Very reasonable prices and the wide menu means that everyone in a group can be satisfied.
