There are not too many buffets in Urbana, probably just two. This one is ok. It typically serves multiple various shrimp dishes. If you are a fan for shrimps, it might be a good fit for you.

The buffet is now reopened. There is a nice variety of choices and desserts. The dessert selection is good. Food is prepared fresh, hot and tasty. If you looking for a new place to try this would work.

I'm not sure how anyone had bad service... the staff were great when I was there on a Friday. I ordered hot tea and went to the buffet. Okay so there were a lot of mediocre things I expected, but some great finds too. Worst...More
