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

We get either free or a special rate at this buffet depending on our amount of play at the slots. The quality and variety are comparable to any buffet we've had in any casino. It may not have as many items as the fancier Vegas buffets but in many ways, we like this buffet better. Maybe it's the shorter lines... More

Good buffet with a great selection with my only complaint being the fact that you can only get one lobster tail at a time. If you're not a lobster person than the rest of the buffet is for you. Has gotten pricey lately, but their weekday (Mon-Thurs) lunch deal is the "deal of the century"!

I have never been to their buffet before so didn't know what to expect. Me and my boyfriend went there for the Thanksgiving themed buffet. They had the usual Thanksgiving items plus much more. They had a special only $20 per person all day for the holiday. Great deal, Had to wait in a long line to get in about... More

This was my first time at Lunch buffet. The food looked so good I couldn't choose, so I ended up tasting everything. Everything was delicious. The Prime Rib and turkey was very moist. The desert bar though was my favorite!! Wonderful selection and didn't feel guilty at all when I took one of each of the cakes & cookies.
