Roast beef served cold under a heat lamp with a server that had a cold. Limited selection especially vegetable. Mediocre desserts.

Very average buffet, not too many choices. For this price, the food quality is fair. Line up is exceptionly long and not sure worth the wait

From being sat by the restaurant manager to an attendant server that fulfilled our every request, our dinner last night at the River Rock Buffet was fantastic. There is a lovely waterfront view that can be enjoyed throughout the dining room. The food isn't what you'd expect from a Vegas buffet, but by Canadian standards everything is very good. I... More

We were there on a Saturday night after a long bike ride in Richmond with the family. It was there seafood and steak night. It's your typical hotel style buffet. Almost everything you want is there. Price may be high for some buts it's seafood night. Seniors and kids under 12 get a discount. Otherwise cannot go wrong.

Anybody would think it's an upscale dinner out but in reality only the price is upscale not the food itself....your paying top dollar so at least get something equivalent to your money or even more. If you want to spend the money and actually enjoy it especially the Ramen, please do yourself a favour go somewhere else. Also, a 14... More

They did have a staff of cooks there making fresh meals, but I didn't care for the chinese food they were cooking. Rest of buffet was just your standard food.

My family and I have periodically enjoyed Sunday brunch here for years. Last weekend, we were unpleasantly surprised that the poached shrimp had big veins left in them. This was unbelievable to me that a major hotel establishment would serve up shrimp in such an unsanitary, unsavory and unappetizing manner. Though the shrimp were not large (maybe 30-35 count?) the... More
