This is a regular stop as I live just up the road. Their food is always fresh, they keep the buffet bar stocked, and the place is clean. A good sign is that the parking lot is always full. Every king of Chinese food you can imagine and the dessert bar is a very bad influence.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. The reviews were mixed so we still decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised at the variety and freshness of the food. Steak, seafood, clams, ribs and sushi on a Saturday Buffett. We will be back!

We ate at Chowtime on New Year's Eve. Totally not up to my expectations. We hadn't been here in over a year but used to come weekly. My experience reminded me of why we hadn't visited in quite some time. Now the salad was good, but it's hard to mess up salad. There were several items that were NOT edible.... More

We had been told that Chowtime was a great place to eat. We must disagree. No crab legs. Well we were told there on the way. And then I saw the line waiting for them. If you want crab legs, you must wait in line for them. I would not get in line, my wife did, she was 14th in... More

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.
