Wish I could leave negative stars!!! Went in for lunch on Sunday at about 2:30. First of all the tall lady at the cashier felt like a prison officer instead of a greeter at a restaurant. She said if I waited 10 minutes it will be dinner and pay the dinner price. I told her I was there for lunch so she got snippy about it and said when the dinner items come out do not touch them (just like that she said it with a very serious attitude). I shrugged it off and we proceeded to be seated and my family proceeded to go pick up items at the buffet. We all felt we were being investigated by both her and the staff as we came and went to the table and buffet. Then my 76 year old mother made the mistake of getting a crab leg . All hell broke loose!!! The waitress came running to the table and said that is a dinner item and I told her she simply made a mistake and did not know. Then the lady from the cashier (who already had it in for us since she couldn't get the dinner price in the first place out of us) came running over and said you need to pay the difference for dinner (keep in mind we were all eating dessert while my mom made the mistake). I tried to explain to her that she simply made a mistake, and as they can see we were all practically finished. She said "NO, NO" she is eating dinner item. So my mom simply handed her the plate with the crab leg on it. We were all basically humiliated at this point and simply wanted to leave.
All in all a simply horrible experience. Very unprofessional , rude attitude, and very manipulative business practices. The food is not exactly worth taking all of that from them. I think eventually many people are going to get this same impression about them.

Totally overpriced. I see all the praise for "kids eat free" well maybe kids under 3 yrs old, but 10 years old get only a 10% discount. My 80 lb 10 yr old ate 3 spare ribs and a brownie. That was it! It cost $17 for that meal plus beverage, tax, and tip. The most twisted thing about 23's pricing policy is that the 9 year old with us, who is 60 pounds bigger than my son, got his meal at half-price... and he ate 6 times more food! 9yrs old 50% off, 10 years old 10% off

I am sorry I didn't walk out and go across the street to Fudruckers - a place with good food, fair prices and activities for kids.

I will admit I liked the sushi bar and fresh oysters, but the coconut shrimp was a disaster as was the "prime rib." I didn't have the prime rib, a guest at my table did and we could all see the [poor] quality.

My belief is buffets are supposed to offer a value. This is not the case at 23. I well could have ordered what I and my son ate a la carte at the area's finest resturants and come out ahead in cost and taste.

Sorry. Just because you can take a lot of "food", doesn't make it a value. Value implies quality at fair price. Not the case here. Many of us don't eat a lot but do enjoy an eclectic meal - this is the reason we try buffets.

I will never go back. Fool me once, ... twice? Nope.

I can not say enough about this establishment. Jack and Racheal your host/hostess are always kind and accomodating. The wait staff is on top of everything and the food is always fresh, hot and good.

The best feature is the sushi and Raw bar, which is always fresh. A great assortment of Sushi, not just california rolls. They change the assortment of food from time to time, with all the classics on the regular menu. The Buffet is definately better on the busier nights Thursday - Sunday, but we have also gone on the slower night and were still satisfied.

I think the price is good considering you are getting all you can eat Sushi, Clams, Oysters and Crab Legs... Children under 3 are free, which is always an added bonus when you have young children!

I highly recommend this buffet - we haven't found another one in the area that can compare.

For all the food you get, the price is ok but there are other buffets of better quality for a more reasonable price. However, the location can't be beat and you do get alot of choices.

This buffet is conveniently located, artistically decorated, and with an incredible variety of foods to choose from - Chinese, seafood, sushi, American favorites, salads, fruit, desserts. The price is a draw back, but the food is good.
