Went for the oysters on the half shell. Very disappointed. Could not be sucked out as is customary with raw oysters on the half shell, nothing to suck and still attached to the lower shell.They were full of grit and shell, no juice or salty flavor meaning they were not fresh. Would not recommend this place for oysters.

Went for the oysters on the half shell. They were not fresh, dried out, no flavor or salty taste at all and full of grit and shell fragments. They could not be eaten by sucking them from the shell, they were still attached to the lower shell. Very disappointed, will not return for the oysters. Stay away for this place.
This the only place that has my black peper chicken! Loved it always great to go there!!! My favorite restaurant. Nice people and they are so friendly also.
Not good. Between the good reviews and a full parking lot at 2:30 in the afternoon I expected a decent meal. The buffet was nothing special. It had the usual Chinese staples, chicken and broccoli, spring rolls, sweet and sour chicken, crab rangoon, desserts (which are never good in Chinese restaurants anyway), pork, sushi, etc. The food was both hot and cold. I mixed the food before putting it on my plate and yet some bites were hot and some were cold. I looked at the sushi, but I didn't feel confident enough in the establishment to try it. The place was dirty. When I was seated I noticed right away that my table was not cleaned. Not only were there crumbs, but also greasy smears on the table and the booth seats. I asked for the table to be cleaned and they drug a dirty wet cloth over it. When the waiter took the drink order of the people at the next table he was holding a dust pan full of what was just swept off the floor. This was held at eye level and it was rather off putting to say the least. While I went back to the buffet for more crab rangoon (the only thing that was good) I came back to find my plate was gone, but my used fork was left on the table. This is typical for most buffets, especially Chinese, but it still grosses me out. What would it hurt to give customers a clean fork? I looked down at the floor and wished I had not. It was filthy. It looked like it had never been mopped under there. There was a thick layer of crud on the floor that would take some serious scrubbing and strong cleaner to get clean. I decided against getting ice cream. I just wanted to get the heck out of there. My bill came to $10.47 and it was painful to pay because it wasn't even worth it. I normally always leave a tip, but after forking over $10 on a meal/experience I was unhappy with I just couldn't. Last but certainly not least it was hot in there. I couldn't believe how hot it was. When I walked out the door I felt immediately refreshed. The cool air was just what I needed after sitting in that stuffy, heavy, restaurant. Hopefully I don't feel sick later and I'm grateful for the stuff I didn't see.
This is one of the best restaurants in the area. James S must own the Red Lobster in town?
First visit of more to come...food is great and the green tea ice cream LOVE IT !!!
good service - reasonable prices!
sucked badly tasted like crap. Was not worth the effort
The label for sweet and sour sauce is misspelled. ( sweet and sour source )Food is food, though!
If I told my best friend about this place, I'd say : Eat somewhere else!!!!! I took my husband out to Red Lobster Restaurant in Ocala, Florida, for his birthday and we both got food poisoning. I had to go to my doctor and be put on an antibiotics for 10 days. My husband is an disable veteran of 24 years and we made plans for the 4th of July. Thank you Red Lobster, for ruining my husband birthday as well as our 4th of July Holiday 2013.
