Okay, so I said fresh twice because I've been to many buffets, and I have never had such crisp and delicious veggies in any except at this buffet! I was amazed because buffets don't usually focus on veggies, a "side", and so at most places the veggies are ignored by customers and by the chefs, leaving them under the heat... More

From the first visit, which is free, up to now 4 years later, I still love this place. It is truly delicious. I mean it is exceptionally great with the lobster but it is actually delicious without it. I say this because if you go for lunch during the week, you won't have the lobster. It is put out for...

After visiting many buffets in the area for the past 5 years, Valley View IS the best. The price is average with other Casinos and has more selections than most in the area.

It seems like nothing nowadays is free without a catch. welp, not the buffet here. All you need to do is be a new member for their players club and you get to eat at the buffet your first time for free. Eat all the lobster you want. There's other typical buffet dishes as well, but the lobster is the... More

While staying at nearby Harrah's Casino, we saw signs indicating that Valley View Casino was offering a free buffet for new members of their players club. We signed up and after playing a short while (no minimum play required), went to the buffet. We found out that the buffet featured unlimited lobster tails as well as all the usual buffet... More

The big "catch" for this buffet is the all you can eat lobster fest. Come hungry! There is an endless variety of all sorts of foods. The dining room is clean, the food hot and fresh, and the service personnel ready to make your experience a pleasant one. One of the best buffets I've ever had. If you sign up... More

Pleasantly surprised with this buffet. Every dish that we tried for lunch had great taste. Eat in many buffets throughout the southwest and west coast and this is one of the better ones. Asked to talk to the buffet chef (Marc Cooper) to give him our kudos. The gentleman was very gracious with our compliments. It is a little pricey,... More

This is the best buffet in the area; and if you gamble a little, they will comp you every month. A fun place to visit.

The buffet never disappoints. They have expanded the dining area so more guests can enjoy the bountiful and flavorful buffet. The Filet, Prime Rib roast and the abundant sides are seasoned and fresh. The chefs are constantly monitoring the food and the staff is very attentive. The fried cod fish, fresh avocados, asparagus, black eyed peas, greens, steamed multi colored... More

We met family members for Christmas Day brunch ... it was suggested that we try the Valley View Buffet. We were told that if you sign up for their gambling card, you get a free buffet ... and we did and got one each. That saved us over $30 each ... a very nice Christmas present! The food on the...
