“Cheap eats, ok food...good if you're hungry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

York Buffett is a typical all you can eat buffett place. The food was average, nothing special. It was hot and presented neatly. The service was fine and the servers refilled our beverages several times. The lunch buffett was only $6.95 a person, which seemed reasonable. We didn't try the sushi, but it looked very fresh. They also offer a few other non-Chinese food items like BBQ ribs and pizza. Overall, it was fine for what it was.

“Choices..plus really fresh sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

I like the fact that they have an array of choices and the menu items do change. I have family that really enjoy sushi. They travel all over and have stated that this is one restaurant that offers really fresh and tasty sushi. And, I cannot forget the ice cream. OMG!!!!!

“Very poor customer service.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

I would suggest you avoid that place like the plague. It used to be a great place to eat, however today was the worst thing ever. Sure bad things happen from time to time but thats where great customer service comes in.

We were eating got through 1 plate each, when we went to go get a 2nd we noticed a little child(~4 - 5 years old) taking a crab/nut cracker poking the food with it. His father pulls him away and turn around the child goes back to poking the food. They take the cracker away so the child USES HIS FINGER!! 10 minutes later he grabs the spoon for the food and drops it on the floor and puts it back in the food. Needless to say we were done since they were there before us we had no idea what else that child has did to that place. Guess what happened next, yup charged full $30 to eat food that has whatever that kid put in it. This happened in the past with one of the older managers and he told me not to worry about paying since obvious I could not eat as much as I wanted.

TL;DR Stay away from York Buffet Grille & BBQ

“Gross”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

The fact of the matter is, most buffet restaurants are disgusting...and this one is no different. Sure, there was a big selection...a mix of American foods and Chinese foods. But honestly, everything from the chicken wings and mac and cheese to the sweet and sour chicken tasted average at best. The service was fine and the lunch price was fine. But honestly, I would never go back. There is nothing on this buffet that would could not get somewhere else, where it would also taste better everywhere else. If you could care less about taste, and you just want to load up a plate with about 90 different items, go for it. Even the cookies and brownies tasted "off".
