"All you can eat buffet" means just that... All you can eat from the buffet. If the crab legs are on the buffet, then they are WRONG in not providing as advertised! It doesn't matter if people show up and eat only crab legs...If they don't wish to provide them as an ALL YOU CAN EAT item, then they shouldn't advertise them as such. PERIOD...

It is within their legal rights to ask people to leave if they are being disruptive to business (costing them money or taking away from other patron's experience)

Why don't you enlighten us as to HOW one is being disruptive to this business by simply eating from their advertised "All You Can Eat" buffet?
It's ridiculous and it's false advertising... Period..
If the business isn't equip to handle their advertised product, then they are who are to blame, NOT their patrons.

Give somebody an inch and they take a mile. 20 years ago, you never heard of people getting kicked out of buffets. Either buffets were willing to lose large sums of money....or people knew better than to stuff themselves to the point of stroking out and/or preventing other customers from enjoying certain foods as well. It's not false advertising. It's common sense, people. "All you can eat" is a convenience and a privilege for people who don't have to be spoon fed technicalities or common courtesy, not a challenge for greedy lard asses.

Funny how the only people who end up in the news for protesting these sorts of establishments for cutting them off are morbidly obese.

remember the lady who ate her food and left without paying she was CAUGHT BY THE MANAGER A LITTLE CHINA GIRL. That manager is around 5'3 weight probably around 100 pounds. When we go she always talks to us and tells us how hard she works keeping the place clean. I think the place is very clean. As far as someone complaind about Kings Buffet. of them taking the plate of shrimp away from a customer. Why was the shrimp on the buffet before dinner hours. If it was on the Buffet customers have the right to eat it. Every day people go to Golden coral before dinner so they get the cheaper price and are still able to get the dinner specials. They don't care.As far as floors being sticky if the customer or kids spill something and don't clean it up or tell someone they had a accident its going to be sticky. Some people are sloppy and some people don't watch their kids when they go to the buffet. If you don't like it don't go I went to Wendys and got a sandwich it cost over 5 dollars with tax. You can go to a buffet at Golden Coral for lunch for 6.95 plus tax.

All you can eat buffets = unwashed hands touching serving utensils, sneezing and coughing on food everyone is supposed to eat from, finger lickers contaminating everything and slots dumping food on the floors plus their little kid/animals putting their hands on and into it all. Honestly, have you seen people at all you can eat buffets? Some looked like they just rolled out of bed.

And someone needs to tell the mexicans that you can go back and get another plate. Have you seen how high they can pile up one plate?

I would think if something happened and they couldn't afford the crab anymore it night be hard to get it advertised right away ..you obviously don't know how much planning goes into advertising. Its probably people like you that made them not able to afford the crab legs. You loud rowdy people go into places like that because it says all you can eat and expect to get 50 helpings, and then wonder why your obese. I know the owner Kevin and he would not call the police if it wasn't necessary. He is a kind person, im sure your not telling the part of the story where you got pissed off because you couldn't get your mountain of crab legs and probably started getting loud cursing and so on when they have the right to stop selling what the want when they want. They have parties there all the time and some get loud and obnoxious but they tolerate it so your party must have been doing g something bad for them to call the police. Get over it have you really never went somewhere that had to stop selling something? You must bot get out much.

THEY CALLED THE POLICE ON OUR DINNER PARTY. NEVER GO TO MANDARIN PALACE AGAIN. THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TRUTH IN ADVERTISING MEANS.

It is not. Have you been in there since it was ryans? Its very nice and clean in there. No different from golden corral. They keep it nice min there. If you think this place is "grungy" then you must be very hard to please .. sorry but there's not many 5 star restaurants in the area.

No they don't. They have signs up clear as day saying that certain foods are only available to dinner buffet customers. My guess for the reasoning behind this would be that these other foods are more expensive. They're far from the only buffet that does this.
