“Really good food, nice surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We were just looking to have some lunch, saw this on our GPS and boy were we surprised! There was LOTS of choices, and the food was really good. We were there for lunch, the price was good too. We will definitely be going back next time we are in Panama City Beach. Quick drive to eat here from the beach and definitely worth it! They also had a whole buffet table with desserts! YUM!! (:

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

They have all kinds of dishes to try. The food was hot and fresh, the staff wasn't "in your face" but kept the drinks coming & ice cold. And best of all, it was cheap!

“Stay away!!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Visited Chow Time 4/4/2013. Went there on the advice of a local at Gulf World. So the 9 of us drove to mainland to eat there. Not much in the way of seafood there. Mostly Chinese food. General complaints in the way of quality. Food was greasy and meats that they used are poor quality. The best meat was the tempura chicken. It was the only white meat chicken in the place. We all left very unsatisfied. One comment was that you know the place is no good when the best plate of the meal was dessert. On the way back to our condo two of our party had to stop and throw up. Enough said!!!

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

We have had this buffet a couple of times and had way too much to eat both times.

The food is excellent, and if you at opening time, it's not all picked over like it gets after a while. I try to avoid a buffet simply because I eat too much but it's hard to resist this place.

When we were there, it was clean, we were seated promptly and never ran out of something to drink.

We highly recommend this place.
