“All you can eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The Empire Buffet is a place to bring the family on a tight budget, come in and you are greeted and brought to your seat. The food is all there...As much as you can eat in one setting. I have had to actually buy food by the pound to take home.

“all the food you can eat but don't want to”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2010

Nothing like old Frozen crab legs,fried foods that have been there since lunch and people watching you like a hawk,so you don't take home said old crab legs...
ok i know it's like $11 but this is in no way a deal...
nothing there is really good....somethings are ok...most i wouldn't feed my dog...
the place look run down...the bathrooms (posh 5 gallon bucket trash cans)
the massive burned out moving water pictures.....
the woman how work there must get a bonus if they catch someone taking food home....they watch you the whole time! worse than the LP at bestbuy
i have been there 3 times as friends would make me go back.....
but I'm done....no soup for for you Empire Buffet!
