Do they have seafood by any chance? Since I seldom make seafood at home, I always look to order it when we eat out.

I remember an Amish restaurant in Hershey PA some years back. The food was outstanding - all of it. More or less typical American fare but delicious. It was quite expensive as I recall.

Even Hungry Howie's is better than Cici's (or at least the howie's in ellenton is better than the cici's I went to).

I'll have to look into the other places you guys have mentioned. Any recommendations for places further north?

Do you know what the name of the place is? I've never seen lobster on a buffet table.

The one in the Burlington Coat Factory plaza is supposed to be the bomb. I have not eaten there, however, in 20 years of living on the coast, I've not found what I consider "good chinese."

Actually, I think it just has a generic "Super Buffet" on the building. The lobsters are alive in the tank. You pick one out & they prepare it for you at extra cost (just like other seafood restaurants) Can't remember how much they charge. The sushi is good- They also have a variety of shrimp, clams & oysters fixed various ways.

Gotcha! I didn't figure the lobster was included in the general buffet price.
