Average Asian Buffet

Nothing special here. Good variety to select from. The staff kept food tables well stocked and restaurant was clean and well maintained. It will do in a pinch, but other than convenience, I found the food bland and nothing really stands out. Of course, what is to be expected of buffet food.

Very good selection of food, but need to change up from time to time. Love the mussels and green beans. I'm concerned about the food being so open - may need some type of covering with opening. They need to rehab the bathrooms........

When Great Wall first opened the food was really good and plentiful and well worth the price of the buffet. Like so many restaurants the longer it is open the less management cares about providing good food and a clean environment. The food on the buffet always looks old or reheated, not appetizing at all. So we quit going, and... More

Roach crawled in front of me while getting my food. No response from management to satisfy me as a customer. I will never be back to great wall

This restaurant is bad news. They didn't acknowledge my presence at the counter. They took my money, gave me change and utensils, and went back to playing cards. Not one word was spoken. The food on the buffet was mostly old. The rest was cold. To top it all off, the restaurant is dirty. There is a film on everything.... More

I like the selection of this buffet, however the price continues to rise. Some of the dishes remain hot and fresh while other dishes are barely warm, need to maintain heat on dishes more consistently. If you are looking for a lunch value, this is not it. Never been here on a weekend of evening.

I've been a patron of this restaurant for many years and have always been satisfied with the quality of the food, which is always fresh and hot, and the variety of the selections is very good, which includes beef, chicken, pork and seafood chinese dishes, and a variety of deep-fried breaded meats, including very good egg rolls, not to mention...

We stopped at this place on a whim. What a surprise. We went back two more times while we were in the area. The seafood was good and the catfish was excellent. We only had the weekend buffets.
