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

I was super impressed with the quality and variety of food. I entered prepared to get my favorite, General Tsos chicken...but with all the other choices, I never got to the chicken. 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.

The Chinese buffet concept was novel a few years ago, but this outpost has deteriorated of late. Fried items seem leaden; the "non-Chinese" offerings are not too good. Still, a decent value if you're hungry for Chinese food, and who isn't.

Another favorite when I come to the shore to visit family. This buffet is huge. Both Chinese style and American offerings can be had on the buffet. They do have shrimp and crab legs, those go fast, but the staff is pretty good in replenishing those items. I think their soups taste watered down and overly salty, and I would... More

This is a very good Chinese buffet. They have a wide variety of Chinese food and a large seating area so that you are not waiting for a table for more than a few minutes. They also have many staff working there that replenish any of the buffet stations once it runs out. This place can get very crowded on... More

Grand China Buffet has been arounf for awhile and they have a good selection of food and a nice setup. The staff is friendly and the dining area is kept clean. The only negative would be that they are a bit too pricy on the weekend pricing considering they are not giving you much of a different selection than during... More
