We came here for dinner for my son's 6th bday. $68 later for a family of 6 I couldn't believe how disgusting this was! The food is old/cold, they barely refill the trays. They are so stingy & cheap with the crab legs they put just enough in...so pathetic. We will NEVER go there again!

The buffet had so much to choose from, even for my kids. I especially loved the cheesy wontons, they are delicious!! The staff was very friendly and was all smiles. This has also got to be one of the cleanest restaurants I've been to. I kept seeing the staff either sweeping the floors, or wiping down the counters myself. The... More

an assortment of 20 dishes including several shrimp dishes, fish, crab legs. A number of typical and atypical appetizers, soups, and sushi. Was there about 8pm, sushi was picked over. A separate grill area and desert area. Ice milk machine. Price value is major strong point. Be hungry when you go, food is ok to good.

Its great place to eat when you're in a rush. Friendly place, owner is very accommodating. Food is very good and always hot. Price is affordable with sushi and seafood. It has a little Mongolian grille. Sushi is just the right bite size not too much rice. I highly recommend this buffet.

I have been here for lunch a couple of times and it's ok. The food is good but it's almost always cold. They do have a lot of choices including sushi.

Great service and excellent food. Very clean restaurant. If you like crab legs this is the place to go. Parking is available on site. Have dined with many friends who all agree that this restaurant is a bargain!

This is a okay place if you are looking for quantity instead of quality as a past review has mentioned. There is plenty of food to choice from, it is just that it not fresh all the time. The food is just lying around until it is used up, before it is stirred and new food added or replaced. As... More

I have given Ocean East Buffet three tries over the past couple of years and have always been disappointed with the quality of the food and the cleanliness of the facility.
