I was expecting a marginal dinner in an older downtown place, but stopped because the location was convenient. What a truly pleasant surprise. All the food was freshly prepared and excellent. We have been back several times and have always had a great meal.

The food is very tasty and made to perfection. It is a well established place of business near the harbor. They have a separate menu for lunch or dinner. Service is fine.

This place has been in business since 1955. It was truly refreshing to have good Oriental food not this drive through stuff. The food was outstanding. Sweet & Sour Chicken is more than just fried Chicken chunks with dipping sauce. They had dishes I haven't been able to find for years. Very simple atmosphere. Originally from 1955. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Locals secret pearl! You can see the regulars coming in and out the whole time you're there.

This is the best Asian food with the nicest servers. The prices are reasonable, but soda refills are extra. There are items available for dinner or a la carte purchase. Most of the dinners come with choice of egg roll or egg foo yung, and choice of soup. Dinner rolls are also part of the dinner. The amount of food and the quality of the ingredients are a real value. We enjoy eating here, and visit one or more times per month. The servers recognize us, and they sometimes anticipate our drink order. Excellent mom-and-pop restaurant that we recommend whole-heartedly.

Ate at Oriental Inn with my family while they were visiting. We arrived just before a number of other groups. Although we were the first group to arrive, we were the last group served.

It was a very busy restaurant but only 2 servers were working. We all ordered soda and weren't advised until receiving refills that they were not free. Who charges $2.25 for a FOUNTAIN (not canned) soda and doesn't allow any free refills?! Talk about CHEAP. I also wouldn't have ordered a soda in the 1st place if I would have known.

The good was decent. There were a few different varieties of chow mein and the waiter couldn't tell us the difference between them.

I'd go again because it's on the higher food quality end for Chinese restaurants in Kenosha- but I wouldn't dine in again.
