A waiting line greeted us at dinnertime, but it moved along. We had expected $19.99 each for the buffet, but it wasn't until we reached the cashier that we were informed that it was $29.99 each that Sunday night (crab was being served, and although we didn't partake, it was probably why the price was higher.) More prominently placed price... More

I loved the hotel/casino/buffet! It was beautifully upscale and calm. Yep. I said calm. (We went to Ameristar on a Thursday for a business conference, and I stayed for a night, though.) We went to the Centennial Buffet while we were there. I'd only been there for the buffet over the weekend for the all-you-can-eat crab nights. Now I have... More

We ate here about six months ago and what a difference. There was a short wait to check in. The cashier didn't ask if we had any comps. I realized after we sat down. No big deal since we could use them later but I was surprised she forgot to ask. After being seated we went to check everything out.... More

We get up here 4-5 times a year (maybe more). First time I was surprised that the quality and quantity were great. It has consistently stayed the same. It is way overpriced, especially on weekends, and not worth the money, (yet I still pay it), but I have to give it a 5 for the food selection and quality.

We had a free lunch buffet here after earning points on slot play. The buffet is very good with lots of food choices. We enjoyed the clam chowder. The service was good, & prompt.

We are staying at the Ameristar for our family Christmas. We ate dinner here and it was over $30 a piece. Supposedly because they had crab legs night we were there. However, none of us ate (or like) crab legs and there was nothing extra ordinary abuot their selections to make it worth that kind of money. We found that... More

All-you-can-eat crab legs and variety of other food satisfied my family. We left with a full stomach. The crab is sweet and fresh. The staff is friendly. The guy behind the Asian bar was waving hi to everyone and seemed to enjoy his job very much with a big smile on his face.

Super nice buffet for 29.95 on Friday night. Snow crab legs are full and perfectly cooked. Shrimp are huge, deveined and split down back..also perfectly cooked. Very good prime rib. The rest of the buffet is also cooked very nicely. Friendly service. And since it's Veterans Day...I ate free. Well done!!!
