OK BUFFET, GREAT FOR FREE!!

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... read 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

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

I eat at buffets all over tahoe and a lot of restaurants. for the price this is one of the best, maybe other with bad... More

Visited this buffet on Sunday morning, 9/28/14. My husband and I were in Lake Tahoe for the weekend with our 17 y,o. daughter and her three high school friends. We wanted a reasonable priced place to eat a late breakfast with four teenaged girls. We walked to MontBleu from our unit at the Marriott Timber Lodge. The buffet was priced... More

We enjoyed the Friday Seafood buffet. I particularly liked the New England clam chowder, fish with caper sauce, cole slaw, salad bar, garlic green beans, cooked vegetables and the desserts were very good. Our waiter, David, was very attentive and pleasantly professional. Our empty dishes were removed regularly and drinks refilled consistently. We arrived a few minutes after the buffet... More

Not bad but not also great like Las Vegas casinos. It's only $12.95, you can really expect filet mignon or to die for food. If you compare with other buffets, it's pretty comparable.
