Top Buffet – Good Food, Come Hungry

Good food and great prices at this All You Can Eat Chinese Buffet! If you’re in the area, it is worth a try. While the plaza and building do not look inviting, what is inside makes up for it.

My husband was hungry for all you can eat fish which we didn’t expect to find middle of the day and middle of the week. So, thanks to Google, we located Top Buffet cruising down Interstate 69.

Food Fare: Delicious food. Crab Rangoon, fried zucchini, peanut butter chicken, and tea were tasty. General Chicken was a bit soggy but good.The crab meat with cheese was over cooked by most people’s standards, but we like it with a crunchy top. Egg roll wrapper was a bit chewy and tough, but my husband didn’t have any trouble finding food for his second round. Dipped ice cream was available and staff tried to keep pre-scooped dishes on a tray in the freezer for you. Usually we encounter soft ice cream but this was hard as a rock—which is how I like it! So, if you want yours soft, be sure to plan ahead.

One buffet line at Chinese restaurant: desserts and fruit

Recommendations: Pricing was $6.99 for lunch and $8.99 for dinner. Great prices! If you’re in the area, it is worth a try.There was no wasabi, ginger, or sushi but with these prices we had no complaints. We also noticed there were other cost management measures such as no chopsticks or hot tea teapot. Note: They are closed on Mondays and also offer carry out.Chinese food buffet line with entrees and vegetables

 

Service: Staff was helpful and friendly. Our hot tea was refilled multiple times. We did get our fortune cookie which was crisp and fresh. The fortune was only printed on one side.

Fried fish, hush puppy and lemon slices

Recommendations: Try the alligator tail–you can have it fried or grilled. Both are delicious but I like grilled better. Be prepared for a fun eating experience. Go early to avoid a wait.

Service: Exceptional! It was very good even on a crazy busy Father’s Day.

Return rating: Definitely. We’ve been twice and would love to return again. Worth a spot on your to do list for the Nashville area.

Fabulous All You Can Eat Fish Fry

The Bucket offers “wet” or “dry” All You Can Eat Fish on a Friday night. This hometown Bar and Grill is definitely worth a stop!

104 Coldwater Street

Union City, Michigan

Venue: The exterior façade of “The Bucket” does not reflect the phenomenal food and service you encounter on the inside.  Very casual Bar and Grill with hometown atmosphere.

Atmosphere: Homemade lumber tables, banquet chairs, Keno, bar, and dancing floor.  Staff are welcoming.

Food Fare: Phenomenal food and service!  Fish and pizza are fabulous.  Fried mushrooms are nice and crispy (pictured below).

Recommendation: Be sure to try the All You Can Eat Fish (“A.U.C.E. Fish”) on a Friday night.  They offer “wet” and “dry” fish.  Wet is beer batter fish and dry is a thinner coating on the fried fish.  We prefer the dry (pictured above), but both are tasty.  With the meal you get your choice of two:  french fries, coleslaw, or cottage cheese.  The A.U.C.E. fish meal includes a homemade dessert too!

Service: Is very good, but can be a bit slow on a busy Friday night.  Be prepared to relax and enjoy your evening as you fill up on fish.

Return Rating: Definitely—every chance we get!
