Casino Buffet/Overpriced

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... read 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.

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

As casino buffets go, the MGM's is great. Nice, clean atmosphere. Great variety. Have them make your own crepe at the crepe station at the desserts!

I ate here on a Friday night. The price was $25.00 after a players discount. The salad bar and Mongolian grill were excellent. The dessert bar could use a little help. I was a little disappointed that at the carving station there was no meat other than a salmon roll. No prime rib, roast beef, ham or etc. The fried... More

My wife and I use to enjoy a nice dinner, and the excitement of the Detroit casinos, but things have really changed. MGM was our favorite because of the better restaurants, and overall atmosphere. We have been to all the restaurants in MGM, and decided to give the buffet a shot. I tried their grapeleaves and within my last bite... More

It's a casino buffet, I know. They've got great selections, and the food is fantastic. I just thought the prices were a bit steep...especially for Detroit.
