For the price in Vancouver, and the amount of food you get. You just can't go wrong. There's an average amount of food but not much of a variety. I did the breakfast this morning and had a good portion, but there wasn't much. It's clean and they make prep/cook some of the food right in front of you so... More

The first night I took my family (my 60 year old pescatarian mother and my two kids 6 and 12) was a Sunday and the buffet was PACKED. We waited in line for about 25 minutes while being reassured periodically by two efficient hostesses who took our numbers and made sure everyone was seated quickly. The buffet had a ridiculous...

Just ok if you want to eat a lot of times. I believe the food lacks quality on it, but it is also not that bad.

The buffet at the River Rock, is very enjoyable at a reasonable price. Lots of parking available, as it is a Casino resort down on the North Arm of the Fraser river. Food is fresh and there seems to be a variety of things to choose from on the Buffet. They have a Lunch and Dinner buffet. It's fairly busy... More

I eat at the buffet an average of two or three times per year; not by choice but through an organization for which I volunteer where we book lunch at the buffet on the peak days of Friday and Saturday.

We ate here when we stayed at the River Rock. I was blown away at how big the buffet was! They had everything from lobster to a waffle station to bacon, eggs, eggs benedict, ice cream station, desert station, perogie station....Honestly you name it and they probably had it! We will be back!
