William Ho's is a north shore institution. I became a regular when I realized I could order whole braised fish.

I am certain this restaurant's other food is delicious but I only go here for their all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet. I think it costs around $6.00 plus tax which is cheap for all you can eat. My favorite foods on the buffet are, the egg drop soup, the lo-mein noodles and the crab ragoon. I have been coming here for several... More

This place is a sickening disaster. I mean from the way they do customer service to the way their food fast is down right horrible. Do not eat from here you will regret in the long run. They don't know how to manage money and nor do they have customer service skills. Be careful this business will ruin your day.... More

This restaurant is very famous in the north shore area. The atmosphere is so so, the food much the same. Bathroom is not clean and a bit run down. The hot tea is good, as well as the egg drop soup. Egg roll, although large, needs to be better cooked inside. With so many wonderful restaurants in the MKE metro... More

So, after driving by William Ho's for years, I finally stopped in one day for the lunch buffet. What a disappointment. Not much selection, not much flavor. At least it didn't cost much. Needless to say, I haven't been back.

its not my favorite place, but my husband loves chinese buffets! They have a nice selection of entrees, rice, egg rolls, soups, and almond cookies for dessert. Drinks are extra. Reasonably priced, around 6.99 for buffet for lunch, not sure if its more for dinner. Service is pretty good.

I used to go to Willy Ho's back when I went to college. So this last year I took my wife there for old times' sake. First warning, it was noon and we were the ONLY customers. There was a sad tilapia fish swimming in a tank at the front desk. It looked pretty bleak. I had a vegetable dish... More

We have ordered takeout two times from William Ho's. The first time we ordered sweet & sour shrimp, orange chicken and egg rolls. The sweet and sour shrimp was fantastic, the egg rolls were huge, but the orange chicken seemed over cooked and tasted like balls of batter with barely any chicken. But we loved the shrimp, so the second... More
