Vegetable egg foo young is our favorite. Buffet was as it had been in times past. Glad to see that they have worked out their issues and are now serving up some quality, good-tasting food again. Great Job!

Food was old.very small portions out that were decent. Many trays were empty. This place used to always be crowded, but anymore maybe just a few tables. I don't think they will be in business much longer., No body acts like they could care less about being here, and its not cheap .

Small buffet but quaint atmosphere and very friendly. The food was plentiful and very good. Quite a bit of Sunday business here. Popular!

This buffet is just okay. My parents took me here when I was a small child, and I've went back maybe once a year since. Sometimes the food on the buffet is fresh, sometimes it is a little cold and dried out. Servers seem kind of indifferent, like their job doesn't mean a whole lot to them. Don't expect your... More
