The food was un-inspiring both at the breakfast buffet and dinner buffet......For the money you would think you could get a decent cup of coffee or real glass of OJ.....details are important and they obviously cut corners...service is great however. Whoever makes their meat balls needs to control their hands on the salt shaker and the pies are cafeteria fare

Had our last lunch for 12.95 adults and 9.95 or 8.95 for kids. The food was fresh and too much to choose from (lol). We even used our casino credits for further discounts.

Our first visit to Seneca Casino's Thunder Buffet was a tasty experience. We loved the BBQ pork and fabulous chicken and roast beef. Like any quality buffet, there are many good selections. Deep fried shrimp were great. We've eaten at the Ontario Fallsview Casino a number of times, and while the NY Seneca is very nice, we give the edge... More

Lots of selections, great desserts. Plenty of different food selections & they are well-prepared. But be ready to eat on plastic tables with little or no ambience. Desserts are suprisingly good! Service was pleasent & attentive.

Shrimp almost raw, meat tough, overcharged us for beer then lied about it. Even deserts weren't that good. Way to expensive for quality and couldnt believe how may workers were wandering around not doing anything. Counter where you pay had one person ringing u customers. 4 other people too busy talking to bother helping anyone.

We had a very good dinner here for a really cheap price. We had a coupon we got from the visitor center for BOGO and when using your casino club card you get another discount. The total for the two of us was $20.00. The manager David was very very nice and welcomed us to the buffet and even came... More

Came to eat here there was a plethora of foods to eat. The seafood bouillabaisse was a little bit overdone. Plenty of good chilled shrimp and cocktail sauce. The hummus was delicious as well. On the down side 2 drinks were 15.50 and trying to get our waitress to come back was almost impossible to get a glass of water.... More

It was my first time in Thunder Falls Buffet Restaurant after renovation. I'm not a frequent visitor. I was very nicely surprised what they have done with the place. Nice spacious and modern dining room, surrounded with 5 different cuisine stations. Grill, Asian, Mediterranean, Salads / Pizzas and Deserts. Most of the stations offer a fair selection of dishes. I... More

Maybe because we went right before the lunch menu became the dinner menu...lots of pasta salads and lukewarm food. Their idea of "Mediterranean" is stuffed ravioli and tortellini salad. No Greek to be seen. Terrific salad/yogurt bar, decadent desserts. The Asian counter had bok choy (my favorite dish, I had 2 helpings). Generally nothing that made me do cartwheels. Not... More
