The service is excellent, the personnel very friendly but the food at lunch has become very repetitious. Need some variety. I would pay more to have an option of dungeness crab. I have not sen any new dishes on the buffet line in a long, long time. I know it is cheaper to offer taco fixings but................. The food used... More

This is a decent buffet, it used to be a lot better, went downhill and now seems to be getting better. It is priced okay, they is an okay selection. Most everyone in our party was happy but not as impressed as we used to be. The staff was friendly, there was a nice selection of deserts as well as... More

The staff will custom make your omelets or soft waffle or crisp. Ham and Prime Rib. Just go there even if you... More

Back open and upgraded a bit. I have only visited on seafood nights and I like the selection. I am not pleased that they no longer serve oysters on the half shell.

Expect a LONG wait. Seafood is amazing, but with the limited seating the wait is way long - took us about two hours. Seating is in the "cafeteria style" area and very limited. There is room for a lot more tables during the construction, but none seem to have been added. My suggestion..... Wait until the end of July when... More

Hi Susan! Thank you for your review. Our expansion is complete and we'd love to invite you back to see the final product. There were defiantly some crowds there at the beginning checking everything out, so we apologize for the longer than normal wait time. Please do visit us again as we have also added sushi and fresh noodles to... More

This used to be a place to get a variety of great food. They had Asian, Italian, and Mexican nights among others as well as world class seafood. Last night's visit was totally disappointing. They had a minimal variety of basic buffet type food, not very well prepared. The price was no bargain, even factoring in military discount. Service was... More

Hard to beat the price for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. (seniors , military& children <12 yrs 25% discount) And if you use your red wind players card, you get the buffet style for 50% discount. Menu's change daily with a theme. (for example on Fridays its Lobster, Snow Crab, King Crab, Shrimp, Salmon, Prime Rib, Steamer Clams) variety of... More

If you are exclusively looking for seafood and lots of it, then this is the place. Huge amount of various crustaceans, hot and cold, smoked, fried, raw, fish, clams, oysters... Service was just so/so. $25 each person. A bit of a drive to get there but remember, you are there for the food. Then, you will be satisfied.

Their buffets are exceptional and the food is great. Just try to catch it on a sale, buy one get one. They also offer military and senior discounts.

The best thing about this buffet was the dessert selection. We went on Valentines Day for dinner. It wasn't bad, but not excellent. The prime rib was good. I wasn't too happy with the salad bar. It could have been more fresh. Overall it was just okay. If you are at the Red Wind, you should try it at least... More
