It appears it is a very popular place for people to come on the weekend when they serve seafood e.g.crabs On the weekdays it is not as crowded There are usually three entries for soups The vegetable soup was too dilute and mediocre They have carving station for roast beef and ham There is a special station for custom-made pasta...

We were inline to go into the restaurant when the manager suggested that we go get a card from the casino and we can save 10%...10% is 10%. We were blown away at the selection of food there.

The breakfast buffet was quite a surprise. Broad selection, but either sweet, or not what I would normally eat for breakfast. I recommend for those wanting lots of volume for the dollar. Some healthy choices available to fill up on.

I brought quite a few out of town colleagues here who were staying at the hotel as I had enjoyed the buffet before but not this time. The Asian / ramen theme portion was so disappointing and ruined my dining experience. The other regular items were fine.

We were enticed to enjoy the buffet at the River Rock because of the Thai night feature. For $35.00 per person including taxes & gratuity I would prefer The Thai House which is just a few blocks away on No. 3 Road. I still don't understand why Canadian casinos don't offer meals at reasonable prices as they do stateside. After... More
