My wife and I are big fans of different buffet restaurants. We both love Sterling Buffet in Las Vegas, and we love Valley View Buffet in Southern California. I don't know any other buffet that brings us a big plate of lobster cooked with their spicy sauce. We also enjoy shrimp, snow crab legs, and tuna sushi from their seafood... More

We are Snowbirds for 3 months and like going up to the mountains and stopping in at the casinos for a good meal. We played the slots for an hour with our rewards card. We stopped here because the sign said $10 lunch buffet. We stood in line for 45 minutes. We got to the till and they said we... More

I don't like buffets because the food is not normally hot or doesn't have any taste. Valley View's food is always hot, choices of food stretches over many food types, Spanish, oriental, Italian, seafood, American and many more. Their soup and salad bar has a large variety. The lobster is delicious and the crab legs are split so you don't... More

As an Australian resident I appreciate good sea food, and I was very eager to eat at this buffet on my first visit to San Diego. While the unlimited Lobster, Crab Legs and Shrimps look and tasted great, I am unfortunately having to rate this buffet a 1 star because i was poisoned by the food. Immediately upon returning to...

This dinner is a great option for those not wanting to wait in line and wishing to be served. Their menu items are always prepared very well. Everything always tastes great. Service is a 3.5/5, but the food is a 5. Highly recommend if you want an alternative to the buffet,

My wife & I decided to go there for dinner on Monday. Our kids & grandkids weren't with us so we decided to splurge a little. We live just about 50 miles away from this place, it was raining & the one lane road to this place has a lot of curves around a hillside. Nevertheless we decided to go... More
