Very nice lobster buffet with far better than average food

My girlfriend and I play enough at Valley View Casino & Hotel to be sent vouchers for free lobster buffets, and I think so far we’ve had lunch or an early dinner at The Buffet almost every time we’ve visited Valley View. As you’d expect, the selection of food here is pretty extensive. There’s an... read more

This buffet is excellent! The food is very tasty. I love the fact that you don't have to crack the crab legs, you can get a bunch and ask the cook to sauté them yummy! The desserts are delectable yummy🍰🍪🍨🍮

OUR FAVORITE CASINO - NO SMOKING partial enclosed area, wish they would reverse this and put the SMOKERS in this area and enclose completely since they don't care about their health or the health of others. NO CHILDREN ALLOWED - casinos are no place for children and if they are allowed them the parents turn them lose putting germs all... More

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 the Lobster Buffet! The foods were updated, skillfully prepared, provided quite... 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.
