Description: Siletz Bay Buffet serves prime rib every day. We offer tribally caught salmon and you can watch the native fry bread being prepared at our live action station. A wide selection of desserts is here for your delight. Sunday Brunch showcases a chocolate fountain and you can choose to add "bottomless" sparkling wine or mimosas. On Fridays, it's a vast Seafood Dinner including crab, steamed clams and a variety of treats from the sea. We invite you to stop in where a buffet is "better at the beach!".

We go to the coast quite often from the valley and have tried the Chinook Winds Buffet at various times. We decided to give it another try this past week and once again...disappointed. Very limited variety of food choices from main course to dessert. Many of the serving trays were empty and during our visit were never refilled. The service was poor to say the least. They never once came back to see if we wanted a drink refill and we ended up putting our dirty dishes on a table next to us. The price and value you receive does not match...way over priced. And on top of this....the SMOKE smell is awful. This is our last time giving them a try. We will drive the extra miles to head east for the BEST BUFFET in Oregon....Spirit Mountain Cedar Plank Buffet...you'll never be disappointed there!

Chinook Winds is a good buffet, but Spirit Mountain is the king. Here the food is still very good even though the selections are not as many. The prime rib was delicious. Always enjoy the peel and eat shrimp.

My wife and I thought it would be best to eat our Thanksgiving dinner at one of the better restaurants however, my brother and sister-in-law thought the buffet might be cheaper. Big mistake! The turkey was some kind of rolled pressed together loaf, Yuk! The reminder of the food was poor quality. My suggestion, those who run this embarrassment should visit the Spirit Mountain buffet or most any other buffet. On a positive note, the place was very busy and every employee was friendly and courteous.

We had not been to the buffet for a couple of years. We went for lunch yesterday & I have to say the food was very good. However we have never had the experience as some people have had with bad food. The buffet is not very large but everything we had was good. They have several selections. We have eaten at Spirit Mountain many times also, which is a much larger buffet & has always been quite good, however we went there for dinner on Sunday night a couple of weeks ago & it was not good. Pizza was tough, the steak was tough, the fried chicken was cut & battered so thick you could not tell what you were getting & it was very dry. This was a shock to say the least. However I think this can happen at any buffet at times. However I would not count out Chinook Winds just for one time of not being what you expect.

We have never been to Chinook Winds Casino before and since we were spending our 25th anniversary in Lincoln City we thought we would eat dinner at the Siletz Bay Buffet located upstairs in the Casino. It was Friday so the dinner buffet included a variety of fish items. The carving station included prime rib and cedar plank salmon. The salmon was dry and overcooked and the prime rib was also dry and overcooked. the other fish items included steamed clams and mussels which were ok along with some deep fried items like shrimp and oysters. The fresh beans were overcooked and the corn on cob was ok. the salad bar was good and there was also Dungeness crab legs. The desserts were not very good. A little pecan pie was so hard you couldn't eat and a nanaimo bar tasted like the sugar wasn't all mixed in. The soft ice cream machine was already melting when it hit the bowl. We didn't try the cook to order station but the three things they offered were not appealing to us so it may have been ok. The service was slow to bring new drinks and pick up dirty plates. Overall I would not recommend eating here.
