About 12 minute drive from the wildwood shore but easily beats the buffets close to the shore. Great price & super delicious food. The employees were great & very friendly. Joy buffet has lots of variety & after eating out everyday during this vacation, joy buffet has been the best. Worth the drive!

I've been to joy in recent years. They have a wide variety of fruits dessert and food. The price is fairly ok. They have things kids enjoy and hibachi people can chose what they want.

I have been a patron of Joy Buffet since their inception back in July 2008. Though they have had a few periodic dips in quality here and there over the years, overall my dining experiences there have been positive and satisfying. As of late, Joy Buffet is definitely on a roll {is that a pun?}... This owing perhaps a great... More

The food was around what you would expect from a Chinese Buffet, which is never very good. They charge children based on height. I felt they discriminated against my 10 year old, charging him as an adult because he was over 5'. This aggravated me since all he would eat was white rice and French fries. We won't be back... More

During an off-season rainy weekend at the shore, we entertained ourselves by eating out a lot & decided to search out a buffet - we found this one. The restaurant was fairly crowded which is a good sign. The price seemed reasonable, our drinks were refilled and dishes were removed promptly. My 15-year-old was pleased with the selection & I...
