The best "option"

If you're rewarded with monetary amounts for food, this would be the best bang-for-your-buck, even if you have to pay the difference. Keep in mind the day you go, as you might like a different menu than the date you're going.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting this establishment. Lets start off with the pros. The night I went the place was exceptionally clean outside of the cigarette smoke. I am spoiled by the state of Illinois no smoking ban. The staff was also very friendly. The drink was included in the price of the meal. Now to the major... More

In general, casino buffets are a place to get lots of food, not always good food, just food. Options provides a wide selection of very tasty food, with hot food being hot and cold food cold. Green salads made to order at lunch and dinner. Omelet and waffle station made to order at breakfast. All this in addition other wonderful... More

We ate brunch here today. The omelet station is amazing. They have very good food. Nice efficient waitstaff. My only complaint is their desert station. I was disappointed that they were hauling out all of their deserts from boxes of Sara Lee. They are not "homemade but frozen out of a box and not very good.

From the rude way we were treated at check in to the absolute inability to get a beverage refill, this buffet is a fail at every level. We travel to casino resorts 4 to 5 times a year. The Options Buffet is the worst we've ever been to. The staff is rude and unconcerned. The food is so - so... More

The price is right and the food and desserts were good. Got seated right away and I will be back to try it out again. The service was perfect and friendly.

We have eaten here since this casino opened and the food quality continues to slip. Very disappointed. The décor is dated, service slow and rather than offer a great selection of fresh or in season vegetables, we noticed that a great many selections consisted of noodle dishes.

We eat here quite often for breakfast. They have a great selection of items and their fresh made to order omelets are awesome.

The buffet usually seems to have the menu but today really enjoyed the bbq theme of brats and hamburgers. Especially loved the reuben pizza. Service was also excellent. The waitress getting our drinks was very friendly and efficient.
