On each of my visits to Fortune House I've ordered from the menu. All my meals have been simply outstanding, the most recent of which was a "sizzling" lobster, scallops, shrimp, broccoli, etc. platter (I can't recall the name of it). A real treat! It contained a surprising, generous amount of lobster, and the sauce was excellent! The spacious dining... More

I live here and have visited this restaurant on several occasions, always thinking that it HAS to get better. NOT. Today was the last straw. I ordered from the menu instead of the popular All-You-Can-Eat buffet. I ordered chicken egg foo young...it came with NO chicken. It was just onion and egg. I ordered wonton soup, which they didn't bring.... More

Fortune House has been a favorite on Saint Simons Island for years. The day I was there for lunch, there was a fair crowd, with construction and other workers, apparently there for a full lunch. The buffet is reasonably priced. The best thing I had on the buffet was the Hot and Sour Soup. It was also the warmest thing.... More

Not special, just good Chinese, fair price, below average service, clean. Good buffet choices (veggies, 3 soups, several meats, rolls, ribs, dim sum,). For $10 per pax, hard to beat.

Spacious, comfortable dining area. There is a fairly priced buffet, and usually the buffet food is acceptable and a good value. However the made to order food is inconsistent, and occasionally terrible. Recently, for takeout, my wife ordered Signature Chow mai fun (spelling?) , a vermicelli dish with shrimp, and the vermicelli was tasteless and dry, as was the shrimp.... More

Just OK Buffet Lunch with obligatory selections, nothing to write home about. Edible, but not fabulous. Those with hearty appetites will appreciate unlimited trips to the Buffet.

I got sesame chicken thinking, you can't go wrong with sesame chicken. Oh, it was wrong. Just awful! Some if the "chicken" wasn't even chicken. It was just balls if dough and it was drowning in sauce. It was more like a soup. The fried rice was average. The wonton soup was watered down and it tasted like it had... More

We usually get the buffet here. The food is very good; but the restaurant is begining to get a little shabby. The staff are nice, but English is not their first language so sometimes communication difficult.

We had been to the Fortune House a few years ago and it was good. We found last year that it was a disappointment but since there are not many Asian restaurants in the area, we decided to try it again. Unless we hear that it changes ownership or management, this was our last visit. I prefer not to write... More
