The worse buffet at any casino I've ever been to. Went for Christmas Dinner Prime rib/seafood buffet. The prime rib was a sub-standard cut, I don't know how they could call it prime rib. It was overcooked and dry. They had no condiments for it. The cook started to cut the meat with the grain. I waited for the next... More

Previously went last year on a Friday night versus a Saturday and that time had large selection, food was warm and good. That is why returned. Was disappointed this time, was limited selection and a lot of the food was cold (pork, prime rib, lasagna, pizza to name a few). Would have been better off just eating a burger at... More

Good food with plenty of variety. Food and service are always exceptional. Food is freshened and refilled as needed. Friday night seafood is well worth the added price. Crab legs galore.

It seemed that the food was cooked off premises and reheated before serving. Crab legs were not very tasty. Personally,I found very little to my liking. For $35.00 a plate, I was very disappointed. The service was very good. Coffee was the best part of the meal. We w`ill not return.

Went for dinner. had 1 piece of pizza sitting out, dried up & shriveled. Presentation of most food, not inviting. The prime rib roast was average, fried chicken greasy, too many hot spices in food. Service slow from waiters, & behind the food counters. Now I know why the place was so empty. Probably would not go back even if... More

First impressions are deceiving. They should spend as much time and money on the food as they did on the facility. Inadequate selection of entrees, plus most were too dried out to eat. My wife said the fruit was good and fresh. The deserts looked great, but they were far from it. Our server did a good job. For $18... More

We were very disappointed in the seafood buffet. The quality has gone downhill since our last visit a year ago. Salmon,shrimp, and crablegs are the only seafood offered and the quality of the crablegs is the same as what you can buy at a grocery store for $7 a pound. The price for the buffet is $34.99 per person. There... More
