We stopped here for lunch as we do not eat seafood. We were absolutely surprised at how incredibly delicious the food was. The atmosphere inside is just so so. but the views of the ocean were absolutely incredible. And their fried rice is awesome.

The bar has improved because they seem to have hired a real bartender. We had fun and so did she. The place could use a little updating but the hospitality was great

We are vegan and were impressed with the vegetarian/vegan options available. This can be a challenge when travelling as many places haven't caught up with the increasing demand for meatless food. A "10" for the food, the staff, and the setting.

Very good Chinese food in a room with a nice view of the Essex River across the street. The owners could not be nicer and more accommodating. We've had 2 big birthday parties there with children and adults and everyone enjoyed it.

The lunch specials are a great deal and very good food. If you visit during the lunch hour, ask for the lunch menu.

On Christmas Night, no one in our family wanted to cook after a long day of opening presents and eating snacks, so we ventured out to the Fortune Palace. Along the way, we realized there was not another restaurant in the area that was serving dinner. We ordered drinks, Mai Tais and Zombies. They were both delicious. The menu was... More

We've been long-time fans of Fortune Palace. The food is always fresh and delicious. We have to drive about 15-20 minutes to get there, but it is well worth the drive.

Havnt been in a long time but went on friday and the bar service was great. So glad to see that they finally put a smiling face behind the bar. The last few visits they had the mansger bartending and he was just miserable, unhappy, stressed, and ruined my visit. The building needs some work but nice to see the... More
