You will never see so much Seafood, until you come to The Heritage Buffet! There is so much to choose from and there is no limit on how much you can eat or how many times you can go refill your plates!

Prime ribs looks like ribeye. Food don't taste like food. Very limited selection. Compared to others casino like horseshoe or rivers casino. This place is no better than the wanna be buffet. Don't come here if you want good food.

Very good buffet. We went to the Friday night seafood buffet and it was delicious. The crab legs were good and the prime rib very tender. My only critique is the dessert choices. I didn't find anything that I liked for dessert.

All you can eat crab legs of course, although the lines are quite long to get in. Don't like that they changed the day they have it, but understandable to get people in on their slow days.

This was a surprise for my husband. I had family members show up, to help celebrate his birthday. He thought it was just the two of us, going out for dinner. Lo and behold, when family showed up, he was actually shocked and surprise. I enjoyed seeing him light up, when he saw everyone coming to celebrate him. They have... More

Have eaten here several times now, and am Impressed every time. The healthy choices are fantastic, service is decent, and this is ONLY buffet with fresh brewed Sweet and unsweetened Iced tea. All others have Machine tea. decent salad bar, always 1-2 servings of grilled veggies , and usually, one is a tray with 3-4 veggies - carrots, zucchini, beans,... More
