My wife and I ate here last spring and it was great. An impressive Buffet with a wide variety of food from sushi to steaks. Being we love to eat Asian we stayed with the Buffet and felt like it was a wonderful deal. The service was very good and friendly. We look forward to eating there in the near... More

I have eaten here about eight times over the years. The service is fast, the seafood selection is large, something for everyone. The prices are cheap for the many choices. Ice cream for the kids!

On any buffet the number of people eating the food has a direct relation on the freshness of the food. I would rather eat at a crowded buffet than a quite buffet. Needless to say the food had been out for a while and was a bit stale, I was there on a weekday at 1pm. They would have been... More

Good selection of both Chinese and American dishes. Food is hot and steam tables are replaced frequently. Server Leah is fast and very helpful to all customers and keeps your drinks filled. I try to visit at least once a week if not twice. It is a place worth visiting and returning to. One of my favorite places along with... More

We stopped on our trip because it looked new and I like buffets. But this one did not hit the spot. Not a very good selection of Chinese food and what we did eat was way to salty or just tasted bad. Also tried some of the American food they had and more of the same. Wouldn't be surprised if... More

Things I like: Good food Nice buffet options Attentive staff Clean bathrooms Boiled shrimp Ice cream Opportunities: Gluten free options on the bar... More

We went here upon the recommendation of our cabin owner. The buffet was more than plentiful, there was a good variety of food, cannot complain. If you love Chinese, this is a good place. They also had a large selection of American food.

Honestly, I was not impressed with this restaurant. There was more American food on the bar than Chinese food.

I got there 15 minutes before the lunch period was over but they refused to charge me the lunch price because they had already put out the dinner buffet. Not my fault. I called for the manager who stood firm on the price. Anyway, I went with the buffet and my husband ordered from the menu. He was not impressed... More
