Buffet was very good for lunch. Carving station, salads, desserts and more. Wait staff was attentive. Restaurant was crowded but the continued to fill all stations. No slots were empty.

When you are at the Ameristar don't pass this up because it is not your typical buffet. The food is good and well seasoned and the hot food is hot and the cold food is cold. Staff is friendly. No matter your taste you will find something you like. Breakfast is excellent too and there is an omelet station where... More

We travel across country often and have now been to all of the Ameristar Casino Buffets around the country and most of them are excellent. We just went to the one in Hammond, Indiana on a Friday night and we know we will not ever go back. Friday night is Seafood night and the price goes up from $15.99/person to... More

This place is the most awesome Buffet.... I'm not a fan of buffets at all... I asked the lady if I could take a look before paying and the lady had no problem with it. We looked and instantly made our minds up. The food is seasoned well, very tasty, selection is just perfect... I'm a vegetarian and was so... More

No matter you came to eat, the buffet has many great choices. All prepared for your enjoyment. From Soups to desserts, the surprises await you. Never had a bad meal and always enjoyed the abundance of the menus.

I am usually really turned off by the idea of the buffet--people tend to overeat and there is a great deal of food waste. But, this is a whole lot different--when the food is actually good rather than just plentiful, people don't waste it. There is something for everyone here--seafood, Chinese food, Italian, American fare. The salad bar is adequate... More

Like the selections offered and the food was "hot". Staff very nice and came to the table often to make sure everything was okay. Prices not bad and varied with the time of day offered. Would definitely do again!
