We like going to a buffet on occasion and normally go to Golden Corral, which can be pricey, especially on Sunday. We decided to try Ocean Buffet and were very pleased with selection and price. Not only do they have a good selection of chinese...More

Be sure to walk through the buffet before filling your palte - every time I went back, I found something I hadn't seen before! Tasty choices of sushi, sashimi and California rolls. Really well priced.

Heard so much about this place decided to give it a try. Big mistake. The place was disgusting, food was greasy and luke warm. Lots of fried stuff. Very noisy and the staff was extremely rude. We will not go back.

First time here. Lots to choose from including fruit and deserts. Place was full but were seated right away. Service was good. Food trays constantly refilled. Interesting mix of Asian and American food. Some of the fried food tasted oily well other things were fine....More

Google the restaurant and it should tell you, or call them. I ate there and it was not over the weekend, so no idea.
