Hadn't been to a buffet in quite a while because of the same ol' foods!

Valley View has an excellent offering of foods for lunch including a carving station with Prime Rib, and very succulent Turkey breast- both superb. A great variety of hot soups, freshly baked varietal breads, salads, entrees, and desserts. The lines are very long in the evening as people await... read more

The easiest way to try this buffet is by joining the slot club. (Yes, the wait is long but well worth every upcoming mouth full.) By joining the slot club you will receive a FREE buffet. EVERY single thing I've tried from savory vegetables cooked to perfection; a ton of salads; sushi; American fare that are on the "comfort" side,... More

The price is right for the 1st visit or $32. Even for $32, it is still a good deal. Lobsters are cracked and open for you to pull out easily and they dip it in butter if you want. In addition, there are crab legs; sushi (Just OK), prime ribs. If Lobster is what you like, this is it. I... More

This buffet was the best I have ever had. Choices were endless and food was delicious. Endless lobster, prime rib, ribs, asian food, mexican, italian, you name it. Oh yeah, the desserts were wonderful -- must have been at least 50 choices.

This buffet holds over 500 guests. I have never seen it full, but I bet it does. The lunch price was $19.99 with no discount for using your players card.

They had extensive choices. Trying to watch calories I stuck to the fish options and veggies. They had a nice selection of sushi, 4 kinds of soup, different ethnic sections and tons of desserts. A little pricey - about $32 but good quality.

The don't charge resort fees but skimp on servers.expect long waits, no service. Being ignored and then a tiny little lobster at the end of the journey. Go somewhere else on a Sunday and get a decent sized lobster.

Up until a few month's ago, the buffet was a "free perk" when u signed up for a player's card; but no more. Not a problem as we were blown away with the quality of the food. Split lobster tails, crab legs, prime rib, clams, mussels, shrimp, sushi, sushi hand rolls, bountiful salads, soups, meats and desserts. Something for everyone... More

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

I love their buffet, especially all you can eat lobsters. The only bad thing is that there always long wait, like couples of hours. It's inside the casino and kids not allowed. If you registered you'll receive a free buffet $32.99.
