Great Casino and the dining is excellent. Very friendly atmosphere and the prices are a little high but the food is worth it plus you get a discount when you join their players club!

Pleasantly surprised by this place- not many buffets offer unlimited lobster, crab, shrimp and so many other things. We will definitely visit again.

They are, however, likely to be the only thing you remember after indulging in this grandiloquent Las Vegas style casino buffet. Also on offer are prime rib, crab legs, oyster on the half shell, short ribs, peeled shrimp, and a host of other ethnic specialties and assorted desserts.

I don't know any other buffet that brings us a big plate of lobster cooked with their spicy sauce. We also enjoy shrimp, snow crab legs, and tuna sushi from their seafood... More
