Very Expensive

The prices are higher than listed on their website and discounts aren't always honoured. They have a great programmable Pepsi machine, great salad bar, and a good dessert selection but the entrees are a little lacking if you're not into seafood.

If this buffet wasn't so expensive I would rate it higher but the cost simply outweighs the benefits.

Breakfast buffet at Senior rate is worth the price. Seating provided overlooking marina and buffet includes both hot and cold selections to meet most any taste. The "made as you like" omelet station was superb. We usually find most lunch and dinner buffets to be more expensive against value but this breakfast certainly met our expectations.

It is very pricey for the food and service they serve. I brought my daughter there to have a daddy night. The time was good, but the food is very limited and quality is just average. The good thing about this restaurant is the view as it is right beside the river. The problem is that it is the only... More

We were seated quite quickly at a perfect table by the window. Overlooking the marina and river. Excellent service however it is a buffet so not allot of attention required. Staff were very friendly. No waits at buffet. An amazing selection of excellent food including good selection of seafood! Look forward to going again!

Pricy, the food selection is just ok as buffet, seafood is not as fresh as I expected. I was quite disappointed. Nothing special oh well!

Buffet is fabulous. Lots of wonderful selections,from meats, seafood,salads,sushi,pastas,and tons of delicious desserts. This Buffet ranks up with quality Vegas style buffets. Price is reasonable especially if you get their Rewards card for discounts and they offer a good senior discount too. Never disappointed in the food

I love food, and the Buffet at River Rock has it in spades! A variety of cuisines are represented, but my favourite is the seafood. Pricey, but worth it!
