Good selection of American/Canadian food and Asian good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Always hot and fresh. Dessert selection could be better to get 5 stars. There is a great private room behind the food stations for business meetings that includes the food.

Dear Guest! Thank you for your feedback. Glad that you enjoy the selections we offer. We are also opening new offerings in the casino including a Pizza outlet with a stone over! Please do come back and enjoy!

Selection of food was ok. Probably enjoyed the dessert bar the most out of all the choices. Weekdays, it closes at 9 so you won't have the ability to enjoy late night food there. Service was very, very good - friendly and attentive. May return,...More

This is where you go to have the dream buffet. Food so wonderfully prepared for you to consume. After a hard day gambling at River Rock, you need to experience the delicious food at The Buffet.

We had breakfast at this buffet restaurant. It was what you would expect at a buffet place. The price wasn’t too bad for $20 CDN per adult. The waffles were delicious with fresh whipped cream and the other items were mediocre.

For a buffet, it is not bad. Has some variety, but the food is just good. Not many options. But the restaurant is clean and inviting.

Was there for a company dinner on a Sunday night. I have never been there before. I found it to be only okay. No wow factor. For the price, I thought there would be better selection.
