So food isn't bad. It's decent Chinese for a small town. Here is my warning. If you get takeout you WILL NOT get your order correct. We ordered from work, about 15 people, for delivery. They omitted 6 items!! Six! We called, they brought a few of the omitted items to us but still was incomplete and had to come... More

I love the food at Chow's! I stop for lunch about once a week on average and have never had a bad meal.

We ate lunch there today. My almond chicken was delicious and my Mom thoroughly enjoyed her sweet and sour chicken. The new owners are young, friendly and enthusiastic. I can't wait to try the Thai dishes that they plan to add to the menu.

Well we found it, after a couple of near misses. Good thing too, 'cause the lunch was good and plenty. Served piping hot, fresh off the wok, as it should be. Don't expect fast food, as the service can be slow, but well worth the wait. Reasonable prices too. Don't let the location fool you. Dig in.

The staff is extremely nice and the menu is what one would expect in a Chinese eatery. If you are Hungary for Chinese this would be a good destination.

The combination dinners were very good and had large portions. The spicy shrimp was wonderful with the perfect amount of heat. Pork egg foo young was excellent with a nice variety of vegetables. The eggrolls for crispy and the mustard sauce had a nice bite. The exceptions were the hot and sour soup was basically just broth and The chicken... More

Incredible selection! The menu offers just about anything you could want from the Chinese region, aside from Japanese cuisine. The lunch portions are huge, still leaving enough for leftovers. Plus, everything is priced quite modestly.

Restaurant has standard Chinese menu. Prices are in line with other Chinese restaurants. Our food was OK but nothing spectacular. Dining room was pretty basic. Staff was polite but could use some personality training.

We had a taste for Chinese since moving to Ludington and had passed by this place a few times. The ratings were pretty decent so we stopped in for take out after going to the Manistee Farmers Market. I had beef and broccoli and my husband ordered pork egg foo young. Both came with a choice of soup, egg roll,... More
