The food was greasy. The floor was greasy. We almost fell on the greasy floor. The TV volume was loud. The employee's child was watching an ipad TV show and it was loud as well. Poor experience.

Don't judge the outside. We drove in and thought it was closed and almost drove out. Quiet place to eat. Eager to please. Everyone ate good food but I especially enjoyed something called coconut shrimp, I have never had it before. It was delicious and I hope to go back again. Been thinking about it since the trip. Yum.

This used to be a favorite stop on our way to Atlanta. It has been going downhill slowly and has now reached to point where I can't even recommend it. On our last visit the bathrooms were borderline unacceptable, the tile floor around the buffet was slick and dirty, and the carpet was well past needing a cleaning. And while... More

This used to be a favorite stop for us as we traveled quite often, however it has changed. The food is good and there is quite a variety including sushi, hibachi grill, and the usual fare. The service was ok, but not welcoming as it had been in prior visits. The big disappointment was cleanliness. The restrooms need to be... More

I have eaten at this restaurant probably a dozen times in the last few years. It is a convenient stop on the way from Knoxville to Atlanta at exit 312. Eastern Buffet has a huge selection from traditional fare to exotic (when have you seen frog legs on a Chinese buffet?). The staff has always been quick and helpful and... More

Have eaten here on several occasions and the food is pretty good but the last two times the buffet bars are not maintaining the food at a warm temperature. As I said the selection and taste of the food is good but its not very tasty cold.

A friend of mine wanted to buy my lunch so he took me here. I'm not fond of Chinese buffets but this was better than average. The restaurant was very clean and the food was fresh.

Nothing fancy, nothing really great about this place. It wasnt horrible but just and average meal. If you are starving you wont go away hungry Theres plenty to eat. Not too bad a place for large families on a budget.

This was my favorite Chinese place when I was working in Calhoun. The food was always great, the service was great and the prices were reasonable. My son & his family still live in the area, do we always made it a point to dine here when we visited. The last 2 times we dined here it has been lousey.... More
