This place seems to have gotten a bad rep and I don't really see why. I ate at the Epic Buffet for lunch and with tax and tip ended up paying $15.29 not exactly a bargain but most casino buffets are on the more expensive side. For the money I paid, I thought the overall experience was decent. I thought... More

The food is okay. There is not a very large selection. The dessert was good. Not enough selections. The employees that are serving some of the food are not so nice.

We paid $21.00 for a prime rib and ham buffet only there was no prime rib available (they slapped a sausage in the prime rib spot) and there was no one available to slice the ham. After waiting about 5 minutes for someone to assit me I finally reached under the plexiglass, grabbled the knife and sliced my own ham.... More

Embarrassingly, I have been a patron of this Casino for 6 years. I play mostly slots. Expect low jackpots if your lucky to win something. Mostly you will likely lose. The max bets on the slots here are high and money drains quickly. Expect to spend several hundred dollars to win a low dollar jackpot. If your very lucky you... More

I was amazed for the price how mediocre the food was. At the that price I expect some hands on help (like in Vegas) that prepares some of the more delicate food per order. Most of the seafood items were beyond prime condition. Somethings hold well in a buffet table others do not. When you offer the ones that do... More

Went to buffet last night (August 9). Buffet was over $18. Had food segmented by ethic groups. Food was marginal. Agree with other comment regarding Old Country Buffet. It reminded me of Ryan's, a similar buffet place. Ice cream came out of machine as ice crystals. Cheesecake and banana creme pie were warm, which conjured an uneasy feeling. I'm not... More

The Buffet is Excellent, and very reasonable. Never had anything bad there, and have been going for years. Very Consistent Quality, and a Very friendly staff. Maybe some of you are use to places like the Old Country Buffet or other low quality, no variety, plastic tasting assembly line micro waved food places.

I don't know what is so Epic about this buffet. The food is very below average - comparable to Old Country Buffet. Nothing tastes fresh. It is as if it is out of a can or thawed. I couldn't even tell you what I ate, that is how unmemorable it is. One word review --- YUCK.

I am originally from Canada but I am living in America with my husband. My husband and I traveled to this casino from Indiana. After a few hours when we arrived we were very excited to try out the buffet we had heard so much about. I have been in the United States just over a year and I have... More
