By far the best buffet on Friday and Saturday night. Shrimp, crab legs and prime rib. Best casino buffet you will get anywhere

After experiencing cold food on the buffet line at the Little River Casino's restaurant called the Willows, I have to sound the alarm for others. This was STRIKE THREE for the Willows. Yes, this was the third time in a row that I have had cold food at the willows buffet.

Shame on me for allowing this to happen three times.

The casino has spent millions of dollars establishing a nice gaming facility but they've wasted their reputation with the buffet at the Willows. The food is terrible, its cold, and the dessert selection is shamefully slim.

We went to the Willows for breakfast and were clearly too early. While it was open for business, and there were other diners, it was clear we were too early for the staff. The buffet dishes all had very small amounts of food in them. The few pieces of ham under the heat lamp were dried and shriveled up. The English muffin in the Eggs Benedict was wafer thin and too tough to be cut with a knife. About the time we were finishing, the staff began putting out fresh food. I was too disgusted at that point to eat, although my husband did and said that it was acceptable. We will never go back.

Visited for dinner on 10/21/13. Food was average while the service was excellent. It has been a couple of years since we last visited and I must say I remember the food and selections being better.
