USE HAND-SANITIZER HERE, PLEASE

I am big on cleanliness and freshness. I kept looking for dispensers of hand sanitizer----not to be found; nor was a bowl of moist towelettes. Even the cooks/chefs behind the counter were not wearing gloves. I noticed one touching his face, then the food bar. Yick. You have to walk through a... read more

I ate dinner here with my friends and we all enjoyed the variety that was offered. The food was fresh and they continually checked to make sure there was enough. Our server was very nice and made sure we had a memorable evening.

The food here was very good and everything was very clean. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. Prices are what you would expect for a nice buffet

Nothing really special. The Prime Rib was well-done (seriously, I have no idea how a chef would ever do that). The chicken was dry - and most everything else was fried food. Over-priced and under performing.

It's always hard for Casino buffets to present "quality" food stuffs for their customers, but like any good restaurant, the Rivers Edge Buffet should at least try to identify themselves with at least one signature food item to be known for, otherwise their whole selection gets classified as average to poor quality. The Rivers Edge is guilty of missing out... More

I have eaten at the River's Edge Buffet a few times. Sometimes it is very good and sometimes it is just ok. The quality of the crab legs goes down every time we go there. We go because my husband likes the oysters and the razor clams, when they have them. If we didn't get the Military discount we would... More

We have been to this place twice. The first time for lunch while we were waiting to have snow tires put on. It wasn't too bad the first time with several vegetable choices and a good fish option that was not overcooked. The second time however was really awful. We went for dinner there the second time and both of... More

We love their buffet, especially their prime rib. It is the best tasting prime rib and very tender and juicy! Also tried their salmon with huckelberry sauce, which was awesome. All-in-all we haven't ever found anything in the buffet that we didn't like! This buffet is more expensive than any of the other buffets in Spokane, but definately well worth... More

I ate here with a group of friends. Some of the food was fine but my chicken was undercooked. There are better buffets in the Spokane area.

This was an expensive buffet, mostly because you don't walk thru a Casino without droping a few coins. The buffet itself was about $20 with is reasonable. Food was slightly better than average or what you'd expect. I'll return if I'm in the Tacoma area.
