This is the most disgusting Chinese food I have ever eaten. I went once, couldn't find anything edible on the buffet, paid and left hungry. I will never be back.

We have eaten at the Cortland Buffet many times over the past several years. We were there again just this last Saturday with family. The food is consistently good. There is a lot on the buffet so there is food to please everyone.

Took a friend to dinner for helping me. Had sushi, shrimp, chicken, crab, fried rice. Everything was good and the price was very reasonable.
