I stopped here to grab lunch on a long drive through Iowa with my brother and sister in law. The casino is beautiful, and the buffet looked appetizing. It was only $10.99 for lunch, which seemed pretty reasonable. I found that a lot of the food was rather bland. The pizza was good, as well as the mashed potatoes. Everything... More

We went with son and daughter in law for "steak night" and were not disappointed. Filet Mignon was delicious, Sampled some of the sweet and sour chicken at the oriental buffet, and it too was great. Great assortment for everyone's taste. We will go again when in town.

Usually plenty to pick from and you should get plenty stuffed. If you walk out hungry it is your own fault.

The omlet that I ordered was good, the fresh pineapple was delicious, and the bacon was crispy. The pastries were dry and very bland.

We had the Thanksgiving Buffet and also the Friday night seafood buffet. The buffets have something for everybody. They could improve the fried chicken, but maybe that's just me. Turkey was best I have ever eaten, Sea food was very good.

Ah, the old days of what we thought a casino was like. People would dress up and care what they looked like. This was my thought while I was sitting in Ruthie's looking at the line of people waiting to get into the buffet. Really, people? But you know, I don't care. I'm here at Ruthie's, the steakhouse in the... More

A decent buffet, but a little pricey for a casino. The dishes varied from pretty good to down right terrible, but you normally expect that from a buffet.
