I've been here several times now, at several times during the day (breakfast, lunch, dinner). The food is average to slightly above. I mean, it's a casino buffet, what do you expect. There are finer dining places like the steak restaurant already in the casino, or other places around Erie. But I am always very pleased with the variety that... More

Lots of choices but few very good. The only meat was over cooked found beef for the speghetti, BBQ chicken legs, and fried chicken thighs. For the price it should have been better. I would have rather eaten at a Golden Corral.

I did find it a typical buffet but a bit pricey. The service was a bit slow at the table and keeping the buffet filled up. They did have a variety but not everything seemed as fresh as I like it to be.

This buffet is at the Presque Isle Downs & Casino. Please don't waste your money! The selection is very poor and not very appetizing. Cost us $40 for 2 people and that was with the discount!

Decided to have dinner here, close to our hotel and of course a little gambling. It was better the last time we were there. The brisket was dry and overcooked. Carver did not point out BBQ SAUCE available and located near the ice cream station. Fried chicken was also dry,enjoyed the wedding soup, it was good. Ravioli was dry and... More
