Rock Lobster? Ooooah!

Tuesday or Thursday night is the time to clear your calendar for the Pala lobster buffet. Although they have 2 locations to get your lobster, I'd get the ones by the carving station that have been steamed or boiled rather than the ones by the Mexican food which seem to have been broiled (kinda... read more

Decided to go on a lark with no expectations. We thought that the meal was exceptional in every way from start to finish. Salad bar was fresh, well attended with good variety. Entrees were spectacular! Rib eye steaks cooked to order. Cold shrimp cocktail. Beautiful crab legs that were clean and succulent. They even had claw crackers available, and a... More

The Choices Buffet restaurant at Pala Spa Resort and Casino in California is for me the best seafood buffet restaurant. They have the best all you can eat crabs, lobsters, oysters and steaks. Tuesdays and Thursdays are when they have both crabs and lobsters but the rest of the week especially weekends they have crabs all the time. The crabs,... More

Choices Buffet has a huge variety of food to choose from. Everything is presented in a beautiful manner and very delicious. We went for lunch and had a wonderful meal. The dessert station is awesome, so be sure to leave some room to sample all of them!

"Choices Buffet" at Pala Casino is just as good as anything you would get in Vegas. We always go on the weekends as that my wife still works. When she retires ( soon) We will be going there on Tuesday and Thursdays between the hours of 4pm to 9pm for the Lobster Buffet. There is everything you could imagine as... More

If you like seafood, this is the place! I was with a very large party, they all had an amazing amount of giant crab, oysters and other seafood. I do not eat seafood, so I cannot speak to it from personal experience, but everyone at the table was getting multiple helpings of it, so it must have been good. As... More

Our son-in-law recommended the buffet on our recent visit to Temecula. We arrived at 4:30 pm and there was a line, however it moved along nicely. The seafood selection was huge and did not disappoint. Everyone enjoyed seconds on crab, shrimp and clams from the saute' table. Prime rib was delicious and there was a huge selection of desserts. Although... More

I gave this a five-star because even on non-lobster nights, this buffet rocks. Most buffets have a bunch of low-quality food. I think overall, the food at this buffet is even better than the buffets in Vegas. They have fresh clams, shrimp, every night features snow crab which is sweet. I really have no complaints.... I find it funny that... More

We arrived at Choices on Thanksgiving at 10:30am and although they had just opened at 10:00am, we waited two hours to be seated. While they still had plenty of space, the issue was getting groups through the cashier and seated. They basically upgraded brunch, by adding holiday dishes. Since we don’t game, we were there simply to eat. I took... More
