The Casino Buffet

There is always a buffet at a casino! We came here around 9pm after visiting the Detroit Riverwalk, we were a little hungry, and the buffet looked pretty good, the staff allowed us to take a look before we decided. Meh, I have definitely had better buffet food, honestly I would say it was... read more

This is the buffet inside the MGM Hotel and Casino in Detroit. Many different types of food and beverages to consume. Helpful servers and a nice environment to eat.

Wednesday night, although pricey, was an excellent fair of crab legs, shrimp, chicken, oriental, American cuisine, soups, salads and, many, many delicious desserts.

I really enjoy this buffet. The service is excellent. The made to order salads and crepes are just wonderful. The short rib chili was something I would order as a meal and be happy. The assortment of seafood and comfort food is terrific (salisbury steak, chicken pot pie, cabbage rolls, salmon large peel-n-eat shrimp, fried shrimp). The Asian section has... More

I have used comps to treat family/friends to celebration meals here and Motorcity. MGM is the favorite hands down. I love the ribs and Italian pasta dishes. I ordered a sheet cake from the dessert station. It was sent over to buffet for our party. It was sooooo scrumptious! My guest still talk the food and that cake. The staff... More

Wednesday is All you can eat Crab night. My husband and another friend could not get enough. The crab was wonderful. Always plenty to choose from the buffet too. Different kinds of meat and veggies, salads and the list goes on. Also, great selection of desserts.

The buffet advertises 20% off with your casino card. My boyfriend had his card out but the staff stated because he did not have 5.00 on his card it could not be used. I was disappointed in paying full price for the buffet, yes it was good but worth 55-60 for two people no!! I would complain less had the... More

This restaurant is in the casino. It is the buffet. It is your typical buffet. Nothing special although there is a salad person there who will make a custom salad at the request of the patron as well as a person making dessert crepes. Both were excellent. Cost is high on Wednesday night when they have seafood. About $46.00 a... More

Quality has gone down over time food overcooked and limited selection. Service is good they could use a revamped menu.

It had been a few years since we last visited the buffet, we immediately noticed a big difference in their foods. Overall, the food has gone downhill, fewer selections too, could it be part of their cost-cutting-measures??? There were long lines at the Mongolian barbecue griddle and the crepe station, wait staff seemed to be hit-and-miss, service was inconsistent. We... More
