This buffet has everything that my wife and I enjoy. The coffee is not Star Bucks, but the variety of food makes up for it. This is one of those restaurants where they serve multitudes of people....so the buffet selections are hot if they're supposed to be, crisp if they're from the garden and raw if from the sushi bar....

Lots of buffet food at a reasonable price. Many more seafood type dishes than the typical buffet of this type that i'm accustomed to in the Midwest.

I stopped for lunch. They have a buffet, but it was just average. The people were not so friendly, probably lunch traffic, and they said they had home town type food, but all I could find was Asian food. Good eatings, though! In a nice large shopping area, so parking and location were very good.

This is a great Chinese buffet. Can be a bit pricey to me for all of my family cause with drinks they charge about 10.00 a person. Great crab legs.

Went while visiting family in Panama City Fl. There were 7 of us. I enjoyed the hibachi grill, others at the table enjoyed the AYCE crab legs as well as the other choices on the buffet. They had several choices to choose from chicken, pork, tasty ribs, and the desserts were very good. We enjoyed it and will go back... More

Used to be a great place but recently customer service and food quality have been horrible. Last night was my last visit. We have gone there 5-6 times a month at least for a couple of years. It was a great place for a family that can not agree on what they want for dinner, there you have your choice.... More

Best thing about Chow TIme is the value, selection with their incredible buffet, and spaciousness. Excellent fresh food and visitors should know about this place where the locals go.
