Sumter SC - Hibachi Grill and Supreme Buffet

restaurant frontHibachi Grill and Supreme Buffet opened a couple weeks ago in Sumter, SC, and today I finally got to try out lunch at the new restaurant.  Well the first thing that strikes me is the new parking lot.  Yes, stop laughing, the new parking lot with no pot holes or huge cracks.  We were greeted by a friendly staff and immediately shown to a table.  On the way to the table, I noticed how the mood of the restaurant is bright but pleasant.  Even though there is a buzz from diners talking, it is not abnormally loud or annoying.

Hibachi Grill and Supreme Buffet has all the normal fare expected in an Oriental style restaurant with one big exception.  The Grill has just that, a Hibachi Grill.  Use your imagination and get any combo you can from the selection of vegetables and meats, take your selections to the hibachi cook who then cooks your food right there while you wait.

If you prefer the normal buffet items, there are over a hundred items to select from.  One of the items I especially liked was what was called Chinese Steak.  It had diced steak cooked inside of a hard bread that was moist and tender.  All the normal items, fried rice, pepper steak, sweet and sour chicken, hot and sour soup to name a few, are all there.  A very nice sushi bar is available also and we can't forget there is ice cream available also.

By the way, yes, I even noticed the restrooms were very clean and well maintained.

The Hibachi Grill and Supreme Buffet is open at 11 am and is open through the dinner hours.  There are children's prices and adult prices.  Military and Seniors get a discount on their meal.  It is located on Broad Street across from Wal-Mart.

My recommendation, give it a try, we really enjoyed our lunch there today.

My family and I ate at this restaurant twice now.  Both times I found an excellent variety of foods to choose from and all the utensils were clean as was the bathroom. The buffet price is very reasonable for such a great selection. The waiting staff at the door and the manager are super nice and the manager gave us a special senior discount even though we're not seniors.




The bad part were the waitresses. During both visits the waitresses did not stop by the table to ask us if we needed refills for our drinks. This isn't too bad but here's the outright shock....  in the second visit one waitress handed us the check while we were still eating our desert as if she was rushing us off and there were plenty of empty seats, so it wasn't a case of overcrowding.   After we asked for coffee they decided to stand near watching us directly making us feel very uncomfortable, we felt like they were rushing us off. 


Soon my daughter decides that she wants ice cream and we felt intimidated but we got it anyway and after a few minutes the waitress came to us and ask us to pay the bill.  I told her I was going to pay using the credit card at the door but she asked me for my credit card in an imposing manner and I caved in.  She took the card and walked to the cashier and billed me.  Looking back now I feel so embarrassed because she insulted me and I gave in.  I even left them a $5.00 bill for tip.  I spotted the older girl laughing and now I realize that I should have spoken to the manager.  This waitress was outright rude!
