Nothing really new for this Chinese buffet, but if it's time to stuff and go, this is a good place. Have not had problems with service, We actually try not to be drawn to this place because will power goes down the drain.

Not bad, not great. A new name and a fresh coat of lime green paint, but same food and people running it. All in all, the food is pretty good. You can't expect gourmet lunch for $7. I've probably been there 75 times over the...More

My wife and I would stop at the Lake Buffet when we are in town but enough is enough. The wait staff pays no attention to details, if you ask for a beverage one of three things will happen. You will get the wrong beverage,...More

All in all a disappointment. The name has changed but the food is the same. Typical Chinese buffet foods, most are made with chicken and very little vegetables if any.

Under new ownership, but still same lousy food. I don't know why I keep going back to try the place. I guess wishful thinking I guess. Lack luster food, nothing special. Only good thing is Sweet & Sour sauce over fried chicken peices and rice.

Stopped in after a new owner took over and they had their grand opening. Still the same , average quality on most things. The only outstanding item were the mussels.

There is always a wide variety of food, and it is always so good! There is a really nice salad bar and dessert bar. They also have chicken wings, cheese pizza and fish for those who prefer that over the chinese fare. There is also...More

Visited this restaurant now called the Lake Buffet. Food was bland, greasy, and seemed to be less variety than before. Desserts are unappetizing and another customer mentioned that the crab legs should get thrown back to grow up (very small). It was annoying that owner's...More
