We have been eating at Ocean Gardens every year since 2001 and we love it. Great place. The servers have always been great with my children and the food is excellent.

We wandered into the ocean garden last night. We were seated immediately, The waitstaff was fast courteous. Almost all of the food was great. I would recommend trying a little bit of every thing. Will be eating here again.

I should have know just walking in from the parking lot that the place was a dump. I had heard that it was a most wonderful place to eat, but no more. So many things are no longer on the menu that I had heard had once been, and most of the food was uneatable that I had taken off the buffet. Walking up to the Mongolian Grill with my two first plates of food from the buffet,the customer that was there said,"Just go throw that stuff out and eat from here, It is the best choice in the house.I should have listened. This place is a drive by. Eat At Home

Wow....years ago this place was our favorite...not anymore....don't know what happened. Servers were nice but hard to understand. They wanted to remove plates too quickly and they couldn't get a drink order right. The guy serving prime rib was not happy when we wanted it med. rare, he wanted to cook it well...no more sushi either. Will not be returning.

Our first visit to this restaurant was today, Christmas Day. While we were warned by departing customers, we waited for a table with the attitude that we would form our own opinion. Needless to say, we wish we had paid heed to the warning and left with our wallets in tact. The food was grossly overcooked and mostly bland. We did not participate in the hibachi as the line was extremely long with one employee working the hibachi grill along with the prime rib carving. While the few waitresses were overly stressed, the restaurant was no more than 50% full. Being a full time resident of Myrtle Beach, I sincerely hope visitors to the Grand Strand do not judge the quality of our Chinese restaurants on the offerings of Ocean Garden Buffet.

After reading the other reviews for this restaurant, we decided to try it over the other chinese seafood buffet we usually go to. BAD IDEA! There are very little seafood selections, and its by far the smallest chinese buffet I have ever been too. It was not worth the money to eat here. I will go back to New China from now on. There was absolutely nothing to brag about. Very disappointing!

I like to come here every year while on vacation. It is very good for the price you pay and all the crab legs you can eat. They also have a marvelous mongolian bbq. The rest of the buffet is good and worth the visit.

This restaurant is a disapointment to all chinese food lovers. Today my boyfriend and I was craving for some chinese food so we stopped by here.....The length of time to be seated and noise level of the restaurant is excellent because the place is DEAD. The food is horrible and cold...looks like it had been sitting out for a couple of hours. Not to mention the service was terrible. I've never eaten just one plate at a buffet before in my life but dam it was that disgusting. I didnt even finish my plate and the server picked it up and said "fork". The total was about $13 and i gave him 15 and that's just being nice. So i just left the money in the book and left. As we were walking to the car, the man came out yelling did you pay! My boyfriend said "yeah check your tip" and then we walked away. I highly do not recommend this place. save your money for a better place!

It was the most horrible food I have ever eatin . The food tasted like day old left overs & nothing tasted right . The meat was dry , the desserts were not even sweet at all . I wasted 33 dollars and all I could find edible was the fried dough with sugar on it .if I was starving to death I would rather die than ever eat there again , maybe I jus had a bad experience..

If one is used to quality food this is not the place for you. The only positive thing about eating here (lunch) is that my husband and I were able to eat for under 15 bucks total (minus tip) I truly believe that I could have made better food at home. I will not be returning to this establishment.
