Average buffet. Was a little disappointing on variety but what they had was good. The view was nice and I did have WiFi and was able to work in the back of the hotel

My wife and I try to go here for special occasions with family, Saturday's are usually sea food night. Was the worst food selection ever, guess being Father's Day they would have a special BBQ dinner with beef brisket, ribs, chicken, and small lobsters, can you say it was a gigantic mistake? Dry dry meat, lack of salad bar selection,... More

Overpriced and inadequate selection of food. Even with Casino card discount of 10% and senior (55 and over) discount of 15%, the brunch menu on offer was overpriced as the choices were few and taste below expectation.

Fresh food and some good options offered but a bit pricey just cause at River Rock Casino. I found this casino overall to be pricey with 6.90 bottle beers and no specials offered.

For a buffet the quality of food was good defiantly has a great variety for adults and kids everything was decent tasting and of course very plentiful. Nothing seemed like it was sitting long so appeared fresh. The fresh cooked pasta station was amazing best part of the buffet.

This place has a great variety of foods to try and they have an amazing dessert selection. The lineup isn't too long to get in and the servers are very nice and quick to help. The food was quite tasty and they had a pretty good assortment for lunch. Will be back!

I keep hearing from friends and family that the dinner buffet is spectacular and finally had the chance to try it out. We waited in line for a while. We thought we could be the dinner rush. Dinner started at 5pm and we got there at 4:45pm but there was still a bit of a wait. Seems like a popular... More
