Teppanyaki Grill is now Lucky Grill

Charleston Fresh S./ Yelp

A North Charleston buffet is looking to swing its fortunes with a name change.

The 5900 Rivers Ave. restaurant, formerly known as Teppanyaki Grill, is now doing business as Lucky Grill Buffet. The switch was initiated by the restaurant's current owner, who took over in October.

According to S.C. Secretary of State records, the new owner is Wen Qin Liu.

Other than the name, Liu has initiated minimal changes, the restaurant's manager reported when reached by phone. "It's almost the same," she says. "At dinner, we have more seafood."

As Teppanyaki Grill, the restaurant generated tepid online reviews. Thus far, Lucky Grill Buffet isn't faring much better on Yelp: "Nothing taste(s) good here," the first reviewer griped.

Lucky Grill Buffet is open daily from 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m.; the restaurant stays open until 10:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. For more information, call 746-9882.
