It used to be a good value for your dollar... but last few visits have been less than good. It has hibachi style service meals as well, they used to be good, but not good anymore... The green beans are good when they are out. Has decent amount of food to pick from, even for picky kids. They do have... More

We have visited Brian's many times. Great selection of Chinese/Asian food. They also do a Mongolian grill which is very good.

I eat here every chance that I get. All of us love buffets from time to time and I think we all know as well that it is a major hit or miss with them. Brian Buffet is by far the best buffet I have found within 50 miles of Sandusky. They have a decent selection of foods and I... More

Hubby and I went and did not enjoy it very much. We are kind of loyal to another oriental style restaurant in town so maybe that flavored it for us. We have no desire to return. Food was edible and looked good. Just not my kind of foods were available. Did not eat much at all. Hubby ate but did... More

This was just an average buffet. They have a Mongolian grill which is a nice touch and has no extra charge. The food was good and service was good. It was worth going back. The price is nice about 10 per adult includes a drink and dessert bar that was loaded.

And that's about all I can say about it. They come up on the health dept. report on a regular basis. They have some interesting plates but always leave with wondering why I eat there.

A group of us from camp went here on a Monday for lunch and we were promptly seated, our drink order taken, and the buffet was clean with a variety of fairly good American and chinese food. Desserts, salad, and soups were included. Ice cream machine is included. The dishes were promptly removed and our drinks were kept filled. Dinner... More

We went for lunch. The buffet has alot of different varieties, all your favorite chinese foods. The drink was included in the price which was nice. The sign says you can also take out, they weigh your container and you pay accordingly. They also have a sushi bar, not a sushi eater so I can't comment on that. The food... More
