I have eaten at a number of casino buffets over the years. Most are the same, with lots of food, but very little taste. My wife and I ate here for breakfast. The variety was large and varied as expected. The taste of the food...More

Excellent selection of seafood. Plus pizza, ribs and brisket. Some Chinese selections also. The salad and dessert bars were great. Good wait staff kept the drinks full and table cleared. Nice family outing during Hot August Nights.

Been solid 4.5 stars for years and a staple in Reno Buffet dining. Best mushroom ravioli in the world and unique pizzi station with brick oven cuisine

$17 for Adults, $10 for kids. This was worth the price. The food quality was very good. Fresh, and lots of variety. The dessert bar was very good. One of the best buffets I've been to in a long time. Our kids enjoyed it.

The selection of foods to choose from is one of the best. For buffet food, this is one of the best in the Reno area. Price was good. Only had breakfast there this trip, but have had lunch and dinner there on other tripsMore

as one would expect from current reviews. We visited on a weekday for breakfast/lunch. The service was very poor, and this is unusual for buffet venues in town. I had to personally call the server to get drinks and call the bus boy to clear...More
