Large selection but the food wasn't the best quality. A little expensive for mediocre food. Might go back on a Friday for seafood night but wouldn't go often.

Overall, the Riverside Casino is a great place to visit, but Robert's Buffet, at least when we went, was disappointing. Some dishes were alright, but I'd rather have eaten somewhere much cheaper and put my $25 in a slot machine. We were there for dinner on a Friday night, which was seafood night. None of the fish dishes were particularly... More

My wife and I visited Robert's Buffet around 5:45pm this past Saturday. Halloween. I had only been to Robert's 1 time before, and that was for lunch. On that visit I was not terribly impressed. On Saturday evening I was impressed. The restaurant did not seem too busy. Our server was very good. He took care of us from start... More

I was surprised how good the food and service was at the Senior Expo at the Roberts Buffet in Riverside!! I had not been there for a while and it had a great selection of breakfast foods as well as the service was friendly and fast!!

Went on Tuesday which is barbecue night. I started with the brisket. It was so good. For round two I went with the prime rib with a little raspberry barbecue sauce. One of the best meals I've had in a long time. And I ate at Red Lobster just the other day so that's saying something.

It was a very nice casino buffet with a good selection of different foods. We went for Sunday brunch and the prepared to order omelets were excellent! Also, try the cream puffs!

My husband and I bought the "Stay and Play" package at the Riverside Casino and Resort. We used our $20 coupon, from the package, on Ruthie's for supper the night before so we paid full price for Robert's. I was a late riser because we stayed up late at the casino. We decided to check out before going for a... More

Don't miss this breakfast buffet. If you join the riverside rewards club they send out a free buffet for your birthday month and other good deals. The breakfast is well stocked with options and made to order omelets and eggs.

I had lunch here and the price was on $12.00. Everything I had to eat was great. Service was excellent. The dessert I had was delicious. I really liked everything at this hotel. I would definitely eat here again.
