I went there with a friend and I wanted a steak, I'm allergic to seafood. They did not have a steak like they advertised. My friend went for the Crab legs. A bunch of Hill Billy's probably from Clairton, went and grabbed all the crab legs. They were laughing and the young kid said to me see my Daddy is... More

Yu's Old Town Buffet provides an excellent selection of Chinese and American cuisine. There is so much to try that it is easy to "hurt yourself" and eat too much. I also found the price to be very reasonable when compared to other restaurants with a comparable selection of food. My wife and I will eat there every time that... More

The price for the buffet is very reasonable especially with families. I go for the all you can eat crab legs an the seafood an that has gone down hill majorly.... More

We went the day after Thanksgiving. The place was pretty busy. A friend told us they like it, so we thought we'd give it a try. We'll never go back. It began with the woman who seated us either lying or else she just could not be bothered, but when we asked for a booth she said they don't have... More

I was really looking forward to this place, but I was so disgusted when I went into the restroom that I did not want to eat. The handicap stall was so bad that I did not even use the facilities (even in any other stall) and I checked the cleaning schedule posted on the door It had last been cleaned... More

Kids just remind us from time to time that - "We should go to Old Town Buffet- we have not been there for sometime" when they are in the “eating mood " ..That would happen every month or two… And we go there. It is easy parking, no crowd...Unlike other places that decreased their menu and choices; they keep on... More

Be cautious ..pulling a scam with coupons! Went with the family and used a 10% coupon. They tried to cover the 9% discount on the recipt! When we questioned it he said drinks aren't included! Total BS! 10% off is what it is.

Pro: HUGE FOOD selection for a reasonable price Con: On more than one occasion (& visit), the food had been left out all day. They are known to simply add new food to old food that has been sitting. When my husband and I asked the manager about this, he simply smirked as he denied the allegation before finally conceding... More
