Very clean, fast friendly service. Overall maybe if we had gone after 5/6 pm it would have been fresher on the buffet. I think the price was a bit too high at 10.49... We will definitely try it again just to see if maybe it was just the day and time we were there

I like the wide variety of food. Something for everyone and healthy option with the hibachi and the salad bar. The train is great for the kids as well as the ice cream machine.

I have been here many times and the food is always great but hands down the best grill. It is my favorite. You choose veggies and meat and tell them the sauce you want and if you want noodles or rice. My favorite restaurant in all of Jacksonville.

Nice buffet. Very good won-ton soup. Pleasant, helpful server. Very nice selection of variety of Asian food. First time I ever saw Hot Sauce condiment on the table at a Chinese buffet, but it was North Carolina!

Have eaten here many times. Lately they have added a Mongolian BBQ type line. Pick your meat, veggies and sauce you want it cooked in. Had that twice so far and it is great. The first time I came to Jacksonville was out of Boot Camp in 1966. I believe the Mai Tai was here then. Always a great experience... More

There is always a large selection of food, especially for dinner. The Mongolian chef is fantastic and the bar has lots of choices for your dish. The sushi however, isn't always fresh, and the selection of all foods is always the same nothing different, great value for dinner, but for lunch a bit overpriced for the selection

It had been several months since we had eaten here and couldn't wait to go back since we were in town. The food or service was excellent as always but the price has certainly gone up. It will be tough to justify that 150 mile round trip drive just to eat there again any time soon.

Mai tai has been around since I can remember. each and every time we've gone there, the food has been fresh and hot. they've added new things, but we can always count on our favorites being there. there is a wide variety of Polynesian, seafood and American fare, such as pork chops and corn-on-the-cob. big salad bar, dessert bar and...
