I couldn’t believe how large the buffet was. There was soooo much food to choose from. Appetizers to dessert were completely covered. The restaurant dining room area is large with the tables well spaced. The servers were prompt in refilling drinks and picking up our plates. Everything was delicious and fresh. The sushi bar offered many choices and everything I selected was delicious! The soups were hot and good as well. With the stop!

After a day trip around the DC area, our group came to this place for dinner. The prices were shockingly low for a buffet ($12 for an adult on a weekend for dinner). We were directed to the "party room" in the back area, which was just more seating and there were other people we didn't know sitting in the same area.

If I could give this place 0 stars, I would.
1) Food is disgusting. Soup is bland like water, dessert is all canned fruit or boxed mix, clams had sand in them, all the seafood were terrible.
2) The purple clams with stuffing are disgusting. They actually keep all the purple shells in a bucket next to the trash, and we saw a worker actually fish one shell out of the trash can and place it in the bucket. We suspect that they reuse these shells to put more stuffing, because we noticed that the stuffing on the shells only have imitation crab meat in them.
3) Service is terrible. Our group had to seat at several tables because we had so many people, but when my family sat at a fourth table, the waitress chased us out and kept repeating, "You need to move, you can't sit here" over and over again. My mother said, "I understand, but you need to look and see if there is space for us before telling us to move." She finally rudely pointed us to the far corner to sit. They also do not clear your plates and need you to put them at the trash area by yourself. This was fine for us, because we did not leave any tips.
4) None of the locks in the female bathroom works. You can turn the handle and it will look like it's locked, but someone will just push and the door will open.
5) "Seafood buffet" is probably the wrong name to call this place. Besides the small sushi section in the back and the popular flounder fish in the center (which you'll only see the bones of), there is not much seafood. There are some octopuses, a lot of fried fish and squid, and a lot of stuffed seafood (fake imitation crab meat), and a lot of bad-looking dark-colored raw oysters and clams.

It was so good, so many choices, the sushi was very fresh, the buffet price included access to the habachi!! One of the top 5 buffets I have EVER been too.

Nice sushi, hibachi and Chinese buffets around. Lots of choices all done well. Plenty of seafood, ribs, beff and chicken dishes. Huge capacity restaurant never fills so rarely a wait.

Went for lunch last Friday. Pretty full, but were seated right away. They do have a lot of different dishes, seafood, vegetarian, meat, desserts, even tacos. Tasted a little of everything and ate what I liked. They have a problem keeping the dishes hot. Some of the dishes were much better when they brought out hot, fresh pans. Maybe it would be better to sit near the buffet and keep an eye out for when they bring out fresh food. Service was good, she was around and took our plates right away..
