If you want to go out to eat and get a decent meal and pay a reasonable amount, this is the place for you. I like their whole green beans, broccoli, spinach and cheese casserole, and mushrooms .Sushi is good. Service is good and the waitresses are nice. Good family restaurant.

We are regulars of this restaurant. Everything is always hot and delicious. We get lucky some nights when they have the crab legs. The staff is always courteous and attentive. The price is reasonable for a buffet and the selection is always tremendous, right down to the sushi bar area. For a nice price, good food and pleasant experience, I... More

Most times things are pretty fresh; other times you have to look and use your judgement. My kids and I like to go here a couple times a month.

The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. They kept filling our glasses without our asking. The selection of food was adequate. We walked away stuffed feeling we had good value for money. The quality of the food was average. Onion rings, French fries and pizza are hardly Chinese, but common enough in low-end buffet places like this.

I have been to this restaurant several times with my family when I come for a visit. My parents are regular patrons and they get treated like they are part of the family by the folks that work there. The restaurant is much cleaner than expected of a buffet style establishment, which I personally try to avoid. The food is... More
