This casino buffet has been refurbished and renamed recently. This is a smaller casino buffet but still has plenty of choices and worth the money. They do keep it well stocked, hot and fresh. The best deal is the 'over 55 players card holding' $5 breakfast buffet in the morning. Make sure to have your players card, as they won't... More

Worst casino buffet we have seen. Embarrassing we brought an out of town guest. No selection. Cold leftover entrees,decimated fruit tray,lettuce cores for salad, coagulated cream soup,indifferent management. Avoid at all costs!

The total revision of the whole casino did not miss the Buffet, the area has been opened up and modernized so that you are no longer cramed together. The food is very good and a good deal for Players Club members. The salads were all fresh and the Carving Station fit for a King. My favorite was the fresh fried... More

This buffet is now a step up from what it used to be--better quality and a far more cleanlier feel--I simply do not care for buffets that much so it is very hard to impress me on this front. Great "curb" appeal - nice presentation.

The buffet surroundings have been updated and the food is priced fairly and is tasty. You will leave full and enjoy the food and service.

We went for the seafood buffet on Friday. It was quite good, all except the lobster tails, which, in my opinion, were horrible. I guess when you are used to fresh, frozen just doesn't do it. Other than that, the selections were great. We will go again.

Went to the buffet on Valentines Day, they had a higher price so we assumed it was something special. At 5:00 pm many of the containers were empty and those that were not empty looked like leftovers. Tried the oriental noodles and the were like chewing rubber bands. There was a beef dish that was cold and tough. The Cornish... More

Great everything. Rooms clean, staff friendly, food outstanding slots pretty good, a class act, even free rooms, just ask. They have great receptionists. We visit often. Also drive 2 1/2 hours to get there. It's worth it.
