good quality and variety

mostly very good but some food stations (Italian on our visit) were a bit dried out and had sat too long. A great deal compared to other restaurants in the Casino. Cost: $15 per adult.

Like I said they have the snow crab legs every night, unlike the other casino buffets that only have them on the weekend. Service is fast and polite. Food is always hot and ready. You can choose from southern, salads, meats, veggies, asian... Pretty much anything you want they have to satisfy your taste. Prices very reasonable.

The food was great with different cultural foods to chose from made for good eating. I like everything about the restaurant the server were there when you needed them and very polite. I did not find anything that I did not like about the buffet. The snow crab really sit the tone for the diner hour.

Many, many choices at this buffet--all cooked to perfection! Crab legs every night--meat, poultry, Italian, salads, fresh made ice cream, gelato and sorbet, Southern foods, Seafoods, Asian Foods...the choices are nearly endless! The staff is very attentive and if you walk away hungry it's your own fault!

We got a free buffet with our new players card so we ate breakfast on our way off the property. It was OK, nothing really good or bad to say. They have an omelet station and food for the most part was at the right temperature but unremarkable. If it is comped I would go again but probably would choose... More

We used to only go to Hollywood but two years ago started to visit Island View. One of the first things I noticed was the differences in the lines. Island View was very quick to get into. On my first visit, I realized WHY. The food is far below par and much of it is very unappetizing. All versions of... More

Felt sick after eating here. This buffet rarely changes, breakfast is ok. Lunch and dinner are basically the same with dinner having crab legs. Red beans are sweet, ribs keep getting cheaper.

Very nice variety of food choices that included enough healthy options. Oriental, Italian, Pizza, good ole' meat and potatoes. Large choice of salads and desserts. Please turn the heat up on food that is supposed to be warm/hot!
