It was ok. $8 for lunch is pretty reasonable. I have been in a better buffet places but I wouldn't mind going again. I didn't like dessert choices.

In driving from Maine to Massachusetts, we wanted an Asian buffet lunch option. Our GPS located this restaurant, and the drive there was easy. There was a large variety of food, the staff was friendly, seating was plentiful, and we enjoyed our meal very much.

We always had fun at the Great Buffet. Lots of food choices. Some of good quality some not. But the place has really become run down and dirty. The floors - although appearing to be clean - had a slimey slipperiness. The tables were sticky and stayed sticky even after repeated washing (we asked for them to wash our table... More

I've eaten here a half-dozen times. The atmosphere is nicer than average for a buffet restaurant, and there's a myriad of choices, including sushi. The food is good, but it's not the tastiest food. Some items are better than others. If they cut down on all the choices and focused on quality more than quantity, it might improve.

This is a classic low quality all you can eat Chinese buffet. If you want a lot of bad food for a low price, this is the spot for you. Personally, I would take a higher quality, more expensive location.

Had my mom, my dad and son in town so it seemed an easy choice...lots of options, 14 bucks a head...not bad HOWEVER the cockroach... More

The Great Buffet has a very good selection including Chinese food, fish, chicken, sushi, salad, soup, desert. The vegetables are fresh and tasty. The sushi bar is good. Fish for fish lovers.... plus food for children and comfort food. Nice atmosphere and good seating. I have eaten here several times for lunch and will return again and again.

Have NEVER had a bad experience here and the food is awesome!!! Sooo many selections to choose from. The beer is more than reasonable and so are the mixed drinks.

They always add water to the old dishes instead of making a fresh dish to serve makes it look like soup for most of the dish's so who knows how old the food really is. Tables are always sticky.
