Wanted to try something a little different during one of my several visits to Alpena and this place was within walking distance of my hotel. I had the buffet. There wasn't a lot of variety, and the selections were bland. The crab legs offered were rubbery

Jimmy Chen and his wonderful staff are always friendly and will try to accommodate any special requests such as levels of spiciness or modifications for those who may have allergies to certain ingredients. The buffet isn't the only thing here. They have a great and varied menu with lots of different items to satisfy any regional craving. I don't think... More

Very delicious food, comfortable setting nice friendly atmosphere, good people. My mother's favorite place to go for years. The Russian soup is amazing. Good for lunch & dinner or large family events. Very flexible to work with & amazing artistic food carvings.

Being from NYC, I love my Chinese food! Jimmy Chen does a wonderful job in preparation and presentation. The food is always very fresh, a wide ranging menu, and even a buffet is available for those who want to try a bit of everything. His buffet is far from being standard, fresh steamed peel and eat shrimp, crab legs and... More

If you are into Chinese buffets for quantity instead of quality this is the place for you. The food is average in almost every way except for the noodle dishes, like Lo Mein, which are almost always way too mushy. I only eat here when Chee Peng is closed.

I have often eaten at this restaurant, partaking at the buffet as well as ordering from the menu. The food is always fresh and delicious. A Russian soup is offered, which is different as well as delectable, in addition to the standard Chinese soups. In season, at the evening meal, fresh crab is available. The service is excellent, and I... More

First, this location has a buffet and a sit-down menu area. My review is only of the menu area. The night we were there, there was only one waitress, who kept getting orders confused. However, the big problem was the kitchen. Our lemon chicken was way overcooked and the chicken like rubber. The worst was the vegetarian spring rolls. Nothing... More

As a long time customer we returned to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Although the food was for the most part good, there wasn't much available. When paying $17 a person we expected that buffet to be fully stocked with fresh, hot food, as pictured on Facebook. But to our surprise, we discovered that half of the food trays were empty... More

Terrible. Nothing but left overs on buffet. Scalded soup. All enhanced by the pugnet smell og pinesol while eating. Just plain awful.
