“New Owner but the Cuisine is the Same”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

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.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

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 a discount for kids under 10.

“New management, bad food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

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 children were running around the restaurant playing. I would not go back.

“Pretty lousy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here for supper after a long day of traveling. It was not a great experience. The service was slow and the food all taste the same. The one bright spot was the candy coated peanuts and chocolate ice cream. I enjoyed it enough to have seconds.

“Under New Management”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Now called the Lake Buffet. They have added a new coat of paint and tried to clean things up a bit. Food was hot and of good variety. Friday and Saturday night they do add extra seafood to the buffet.
