12/4/08 I was prepared for a good buffet, not expecting either a 4 * or 1*, just a good "chinese" meal. Honestly, you could do much better at ANY mall food court chinese than here, for 1/3 the price. Dinner was $23.59 for one person and that only includes $2 tip. Don't believe the hyperbole you see in the reviews here.It's BS. From now on I'll count a bad review 3x over a good one. U should too. First glance, looks like a lot of choices, even "sushi". Place looks nice, better than your average chinese restaurant.. Then you look closer and see things like chicken sushi (not kidding). ALL the food is dead/old/mushy/dried out. NOTHING tastes good, even on a low scale. (FYI, I went at 8pm on a thurs, it was @ 75 % full.) They do have crab legs/shrimp etc but it must have been frozen and then sat in the steamer all day. Complete mush/rubber, even the shells (no exageration). Egg rolls, same thing. They didn't even have common items like general zso's or sesame chicken or kung pao. Even if your idea of "chinese" is sweet & sour, don't do it. It was crap too. (even McNuggets are better than their sweet/sour chicken and I won't eat that stuff).They do have a lot of deserts,I had ice cream & cookies which were OK. but nothing special.
Seriously, go to a food court or spend a little more and go somewhere where people can cook/really cook. Perhaps China Grill or Indomania or even PF Chang's which is at least decent. Or randomly pick a take out from the phone book. This place is Complete C-R-A-P.

Emerald Coast is by far the best Chinese buffet restaurant I've been too. There like double the price of a normal buffet, but worth it. They have a wide selection of food and there service is good. You should definitely check it out especially if your staying at the Newport Resort which is right across the street.

Our family has been coming here for about ayear & it's getting progressively worse. The food is sloppier, the service is slower, the place just isn't as clean. When speaking to management about these things, I was disappointed to see that they really don't care. Too bad, because this used to be a great place to dine. What a big disappointment!
