“awful, dried out, tasteless & dirty”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Don't bother stopping here. Its very unclean, old atmosphere and never tidy. The western food such as the turkey is picked clean and never replaced and dried out, roast beef is from days ago, pizza is dry and stone hard. The chinese food is horrible and very dried out and old looking. The hostess was geting the desert table ready to close up and she was using her ungloved hands to put the finger foods on different trays after handling menus, money etc. Never ever will return!!!

“Buffet at it finest”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Something for everyone. Seafood on the weekends is very good and there is something for everyone. Resturant was clean and the food was fantastic it included some old favorites for those who are not crazy about chinese. Mashed potatoes, gravy, roast beef, turkey just to name my favorites. Chinese dishes are very good.

“Worst Food Ever”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Over the years I have stopped a few times and it wasn't too bad. Not this time. I know not to expect great food at a buffet, but this was unbelievably bad. Stopped in around 4:30 and was pointed to a table and given a glass of water. The food was cold, some of the items looked like they were lunch leftovers. Trays were empty, most of the Asian food was soggy from sitting the trays for so long. Roast was horrible and there was pure grease floating on top the gravy that looked like it had been sitting there for a week. Gross. I could go on, but I won't as this business has bottomed out and don't expect it to survive with the crap they serve.
