We have going to this buffet off and on since it opened. Food is always good, price is fair but lately the wait people are very pushy about their tips and rush you with paying the bill. If they don't change their ways we will find another place to eat !

Went in and asked about the pricing, was told one price for everything at dinner (did not include pop which is fine). When we got the bill we presented our 10% off coupon and were told we had to pay first and then they would try to use the coupon. When we went to the desk with the coupon the cashier very rudely increased the bill saying that some items were not included.

The restrooms were some of the dirtiest I have seen as well (did not go in there until almost the end of the meal). Booth seats were ripped and dirty and the table top signage was sticky sticky sticky as well.

Beware if you are eating here - there are better and cleaner places in town.

If you want cheap cheap food, bad service and to be lied to then this is a perfect place for you.

We have gone to Jumbo Buffet, many, many times. It is our go to place for family celebrations.
Our grandchildren like to celebrate their birthdays there. They have a "party room" and depending on our numbers, we sometimes use that room. The picky grandchildren can choose just the food that they like. We have two that can and do, eat a plate of white rice, with a few other things too. No looking over menus, waiting for food, it is all there ready as soon as we walk in. One of my teenage grandaughters' asked me,"Grandma, do you know why I like Jumbo?" "Because I can just walk in an eat." That is a good point. The food is always being replaced as the pan is nearing empty, there is a chef ready to mix up a custom plate on his grill if a person wants special ingredients, a sushi bar, and this is unusual, but always hot fresh raised sugar covered donuts. They are always hot and fresh. Unexpected at a Chinese Buffet.
beverages are served by wait staff, everyone is very pleasant and helpful. The manager, Susan is terrific.

I was Lucky to have found this place on my way to ferry terminal for Port Townsend. Good food, reasonable price and great selection. If you come by this beautiful town of Oak Harbor. Try this. No regret

Very friendly staff and the food is fresh and always hot and flavorful. They've done a good job with the decor and food presentation. The choice is great. You can pick from all the standards or create your own and have the cook it right in front of you. They also have sushi, deserts, and plenty of refreshing beverages. I've always had good food and great service.
