I saw a large billboard on Gilmer today advertising the Lakeside Buffet. They must be getting about ready to open. I'm pretty sure it is Chinese - or maybe "Asian" - I wouldn't mind seeing some Thai, Korean, Japanese or Vietnamese on the buffet.

I drove by Lakeside Buffet this morning and noticed two unlit neon signs in the front window that said Sushi and Grill. Should tell you what kind of restaurant that's going to be.

I'm curious about what else is going in in that building. I noticed a drive through window on the far west end of the building. I've heard Subway is going in that one but I really hope not.

Gal - a worker at Subway told me they were moving there.

Maybe the drive-thru is for another drug store. There's a real shortage of those in Sulphur Springs, too.

I've been told that this is a small chain owned by a Chinese family hence the reason it is named Lakeside (since it isn't really beside a lake!). Sure hoping it will offer some different items than are already available in the already established Chinese food restaurants in town!

I looked inside and in addition to the buffet lines - it had a section marked "Grill". Maybe they will do steaks or something Japanese style. I guess I'll find out when they open.

i'm hoping that it's better than the other chinese / asian places in either SS or even greenville. every one of them that i've tried have been really lacking in food quality. that one in greenville made me sick the last 2 times we ate there...ugh. sadly, mom loves any chinese buffet....ick.

Apparently the new restaurant will have it's grand opening on Friday, and in addition to the regular chinese buffet, will have a sushi bar and a "Mongolian Grill". I hope it's like the Ghengis Grill in Rockwall.

By the way - I saw an ad in the paper the other day for a downtown restaurant for sale. Anyone know about that?

That would be LouViney's. I Googled the number and it came back to a business brokerage firm. I found their website and the add and it went a little more into detail than what the ad said. I have no idea why it's selling, though.

I'm sorry to hear that. I thought they were doing well - the food was good and I didn't think it was too expensive. Wonder what else would work over there. Maybe downtown, despite all the money that's gone into revitalization, is not really attractive to new restaurants or businesses.

I ate at the new Lakeside Buffet today. I was impressed. I thought the food was very good, seemed to be freshly prepared and was hot. They also had a Mongolian BBQ set up. It was $8.39 for ayce at dinner. Plus a 10% discount for those of us over 60.

After a second visit I now classify it as "average".

I agree on the buffet being average, but I really like the "fresh bar" where I can load up on veggies, spices and they cook it they way you want it.

I'll prolly stick to the boiled shrimp, sushi and wok items.

sounds like a good plan. I will probably do that too - although, in all fairness - i went today again( love oriental food0 and ordered something to go off the menu - that was very good. Sometimes I think Chinese food is not meant to be served buffet style.
