I go here for the soft shell crabs that are really good! Most of the rest of the food is sub-par. Not really very tasty. I went for dinner last week...not any better, The sushi is fair with maybe only 3 very dull rolls and one type hand roll.The girl making them couldn't give a dam if we were alive or dead. The soups are good and I tried the mussels that were plump with not too much of that gross mayo! Big fish with what looked good...wasn't...very bitter! Plenty of cheap can't mess up fruit and veggies. All buffets have the ice cream machine...you'd think they would do better than the two boring choices? Not eve sprinkles! I like the service, but don't go too late as they rush you out at 9:30 and take away all the food ...they close at 10. When I think of the place..it's the soft shelled crabs.... so I'll go again just to empty the trays!

The selection was'nt as varied as i had anticipated but some of the choices were o.k. The majority of the food was cold/warm and i never noticed anyone switch the containers with a fresher replacement. The orange chicken was pretty good and the garlic souce was a nice condement. I wasn't that happy but i guess i got what i payed for. $9.99 C-

This place is a pretty simple set up. Good price for an all you can eat buffet. Even if the food isn't exactly the best. Stay away from the Wonton soup and any sea food (besides sushi) The fried rice isn't anything great either. The ribs have ketchup insted of barbaque sauce on them. But everything else is pretty good. I recomend the chicken on skewers.

OK for a buffet-style: Salads, jello, puddings, egg-flower and hot&sour soups, a decent orange chicken (sorry, the Panda Express chain seems to have the secret on keeping this stuff fresh-tasting) and a very tasty boneless BBQ chicken. Plus, a nice prime rib, decent pizza, mashed and roasted potatoes, carrots, corn, rolls, beef ribs (s/o reported it was marinated in vinegar - I'll try it next time), crab (I didn't taste it), fried rice and lo mein (fried rice was fine, wasn't in the mood for the lo mein). The thing we really liked: lots of desserts, nice and small: cheesecake pie, pecan pie, pumpkin, carrot cake, chocolate cake, strudels, fruit tarts, cream puffs, cookies, and two machines serving choc/van soft-serve and vanilla and strawberry frozen yogurt (no sprinkles/jimmies, just choc. syrup).
