The Carnival buffet is massive with an extensive collection of foods and desserts. We did the seafood version and were satisfied. It is a lot of food at decent quality. You will not leave hungry. Price is reasonable for what was offered in a tourist area.

The seafood placed on ice cubes were a disappointment. The raw oysters were not fresh - really shrunk, fishy-tasting, and unedible. Fresh ones have some plumpness to it, and the taste should be like the sea water without being salty. The other seafood offerings served on ice were okay but were dripping with water as they are thawing. So the... More

The buffet was that great at all. If you want the seafoof included it is a upcharge for that, and its not worth it. Some if the items were good, i.e. fried oysters, duck, pork ribs, broccolini. The crab legs were cold and dryed out. The desserts were lacking, the salads were wilted. Breakfast was typical. Omelets, pancakes, bacon, breakfast... More

75% of the large variety of food there was that I tried I took 1 bite and either spit it out or that was the only bite I took. It was definitely the largest buffet/most variety I've seen but it was just terrible. The prime rib was still breathing and it seemed like a pain to the carver if you... More

First let me say get a discount coupon before going to the buffet. We upgraded to include all seafood and it cost $80.00 for the 2 of us. All seafood included lobster tail, king crab legs, oysters several ways and snow crab in addition to the usual crawfish and shrimp. The lobster tail was small and tasteless and the "king"... More

This is a god place to visit. I have been going for over 15 years. They have a great verity of food. Everything you could want to eat. Even the kids will find food that they like. It has gone up in price a lot over the years.

I paid extra for the Seafood section of the buffet then was surprised to see Seafood at another section. Next time I'll just pay the lower price. Thought the mixed drinks were rather pricey, so I just had one. Otherwise the food was excellent. Can't wait to go back again.

I've been coming to this particular buffet for years. Its one of the only places where the entire family can go and everyone LOVES their food. Also a bonus, there is a free shuttle from Bally's to the Rio. On Saturday and Sunday there is complementary champagne brunch!

Food was not good at all. The only food that was halfway decent was the oriental food all the way at the end of the buffet. Even that wasn't that great but it was edible. Very disappointed again.
