Used TripAdvisor to verify quality of restaurant near hotel. Made a mistake. The service was fine. The food came out quick, so we figured it was microwaved. Crab/cream cheese ragoons, but no crab. We got a dish with a variety of seafood soaked in tasteless sauce. My husband loves Chinese food, but his comment was that he has had better... More

My friend, husband and I went to the Great Wall prior to a Chinese show (Shen Yu) to keep the theme going. The cocktails prior to dinner were nondescript...maybe they got the order wrong. They looked Hawaiian-y but tasted awful.(How can a MaiTai taste like koolaid?) The Dishes supposedly served in a chow mien noodle bowl were bland and the... More

At one time the premier Chinese restaurant in Rockford. Getting a little "tattered" around the edges.

I used to love coming here, but the quality has declined a little bit. They have a huge dining area and a bar, but it feels a little sticky/dirty and the chairs and things are falling apart. The service is always great and fast and friendly. The food is just ok though. The egg rolls are greasy and not so... More

The shrimp fried rice was tasteless, as was the eggroll. The spare ribs were passible at best. Went there for lunch. The service was good , but the food was horrible. Never again.

We always celebrate here for Chinese New Year. Great spread for a reasonable price. I do like more veggies in my dishes, however.

We ate here just a few weeks ago and were pretty disappointed. The food was just OK but this used to be our favorite place for Chinese food, dine in or take out. The egg rolls were burned and our favorite dishes were bland. The original owners left a ways back and we have noticed this place sliding down hill... More

The food was very good at the Great Wall although it was slow getting to the table. I was the only one at our table with coffee (A pot of tea was out for others) and I had to ask for the refill on my coffee 2 times before it got to the table. The decor is lacking. Summed up...go... More

A great place with wonderful food. A must stop in and eat place. We had a large group of people and they were able to accommodate us and the service was great.
