Selections were slim for the buffett...and the selections that were there weren't very good.

Though it's a self-serve buffet, the service is better than many and the food fresh and plentiful. Their seafood Friday and special holiday buffets are beyond compare and though more than similar buffets in Las Vegas, you won't feel lost in a hanger here!

If you leave hungry, it's your own fault!

This restaurant should have 3.5 dots. It's good, better than what I call "average", but not quite "very good", in my opinion!

It's a typical Indian casino buffet, located upstairs. You do have to walk through some smoke to get to the buffet area, but once there, it smells clean and smoke-free. Seating is pleasant and comfortable.

There is a large salad bar, a good variety of side dishes, a main carving station and of course the desserts. Overall, it is not as large as some of the casino buffets where we have eaten, but there is something here to please everyone.

Most of the selections were a bit on the "plain" side, nothing too adventurous, but everything tasted good and was fresh. Service was very good.

Our weekday dinner price was quite reasonable - about $16 each - they do charge more for the Friday night seafood buffet.

We were staying in the Jackson Rancheria RV park and there is a free shuttle, so it made it very convenient. We'll eat here again next time we're in town.
