Restaurant had been open about .30 minutes when we arrived. Many items on buffet and Mongolian bar-b-q. Many items we tried were barely warm on hot bar. Have been here many times over the years, quantity over quality. Dessert cake tasted , tasted dry like old cake.

Anything from soup to a salad, meat and potatoes, rice and noodles, and seafood along with decadent deserts! The service is very fast and friendly! All you can eat at not a bad price. Great for the family!

This is a good buffet if you are looking for a place for lunch. Place is clean, food is good and staff is very nice. They have all the hot and cold items for a Chinese Buffet and they offer a hibachi bar which is full of meats and vegetables. I felt the hot food could have been hotter but... More

With most buffets there are always two worries. Will the food be good and will the place be clean. This place passes on both account. I found it very clean, about the cleanest buffet I have seen, and while not the best food I have ever had. It was good food that I enjoyed. We got there at the beginning... More

Food was good, mostly hot. Buffet is eighty percent chicken dishes, some are better than others. To me it is ok, not great Chinese but really the only buffet choice in town.

We decided to eat here and it was a bad mistake. Husband got sick from the raw oysters. We had to have tons of test ran and it showed he got a disease from the oyster. It was something that is mainly caught from out of the country. Will never eat here again

I love this place! Most of the food is pretty generic but if you choose the right stuff it is pretty tasty. My favs are the crab rangoons, the egg rolls(must dip in duck sauce), Thai fried rice, the beef with peppers, and sweet and sour chicken. Soups and desserts are ok but I usually have rangoons for dessert :).... More

We have been here now 3 times as we travel to North Georgia. We have had very good food most of the time but as the night business slows the attention to fresh goes down. So come during traditional lunch or dinner times and you will be pleased.
