Smaller Buffet with high prices

Apparently they only offer this buffet on Friday and Saturday evenings. We stayed at this hotel for Christmas holiday. They had a "special price" for Christmas of $26.95!! Normally is $15.00. The food we had was good however, not worth such a huge amount of money. The buffet was small, i am... read more

Got food poisoned and they did nothing for me do not risk your life STAY AWAY. Worst food and worst service and for sure worst management. Michelle Burgstrom is the worst risk management director in the history of food and beverage. I hold her to blame. I am sure she will be fired soon since she is horrible at her... More

We had a dinner at the MontBleu buffet and it was really great. Good flavors, very clean and friendly. The manager was even circulating to ask how we felt about dishes, etc. He encouraged us to come back for the Sunday buffet which was much less expensive (and easier waiting time) than the 18th floor Harrahs. So, we tried it... More

First impression was this was going to be like one of those nice All You Can Eat buffets one might find in Cancun- WRONG. The food, with the exception of the Roast Beef and Ice Cream, was nasty. Oh, and the coke and diet cokes were good too. But everything else we tried from the LIMITED menu was bland. They... More

I come to Montbleu quite a bit for concerts and a few times a month during football season to place some bets. I have eaten at the cafe a few times and each time the food was horrible and blah! I do however like to come here for their happy hour drink specials which are very good in price. I... More

Buffet was very standard, had a free coupon for the 2 of us, that made it a bit better. The salads were good, turkey roll good, and the pho and noodle soups were good. The meats were not that great, tough and didn't really try too much else. Good place to go if you have kids, We would not go... More

The buffet has a nice variety of food and our large party was seated quickly. I would have liked to give this a higher rating, but the server seemed rattled and did not provide beverages to the teenagers until the adults asked if he had asked them for their drink orders. After a while he paid more attention to clearing... More

First time at the buffet for us locals; the food selection was worth the value of $18/person included non alcoholic drinks. The carved meats were all good flavor plus there was prime rib, fried chicken, and maple glazed ham! The service was tropical buffet style but our server was attentive of our refills. We tried just about everything except sushi... More
