Pleasantly surprised

I had heard mixed reviews, but the buffet was included in the price of the tickets to see Gordie Brown. The food was fresh and very good. The smoke brisket was great and I also enjoyed the peel and eat shrimp. The desserts were also outstanding. My wife had the bread pudding and I had the... read more

I will very rarely eat at a buffet, but we had breakfast there one morning. I was surprised that it was reasonably priced. There was a good selection and they have an omelet station with fresh veggies to choice from.

This review is only for breakfast. I would rate it good or better than average. Because beverages are included it is a good value. The choices are mostly breakfast items only but were good.

I don't have a lot of buffet experience to compare it to, but our party was all very satisfied. No wait for breakfast, seated our party of 10 without problem. Food was good, hot. You wouldn't travel far and wide for it, but it was more than adequate at a good price.

There was not wait time to enter the restaurant. Price is about $21/person, includes drinks and refills were provided even before you finished your drink. Children over 10 pay adult price. Large assortment of food including an italian & sushi, ice cream bar. One of the largest selection of desserts I have seen. Meats were cooked well, including prime rib,... More

Just don't come at "shift change", we were there at 10:30, which is change over time form Breakfast to Lunch. It was a mish mash of both and nothing marked so you didn't know what any of it was. Food was good, just disappointed that I didn't know what some was. Came earlier the next day, had a very nice... More

One regret about my Vegas trip was eating here. The staff was friendly but the food is typical low quality buffet food. Next time I will def skip this place.

I wish if I knew about this buffet before I went to other buffet in downtown.. This so far the best buffet in a casino at Freemont. I suggest it if you are not leaving downtown. I will have them on my list if I decide to stay in downtown.
