Good buffet for lunch

This Riverside buffet is a good choice for lunch. Selection is good and food was well prepared. One of the better values for the price for a lunch buffet in Laughlin.

We enjoyed the casino its huge and even took in bingo. They have multiple bars, pool tables and even a bowling alley. They just need to upgrade the casino, add some ways to control the smoke. This would make a huge difference.

For the price it's not bad but what's bad is maybe the food? Not bad in a horrible gross way bad in it was canned fruit, salads you know have been sitting and lamb?! Maybe. Dried out desert, and pre-frozen pies. But some things were good! Honestly I got full and satisfied you got to pick the right stuff, the... More

This breakfast buffet barely makes an average rating, even for Laughlin. It gets an extra star from me for the superb river view. The buffet is not so much more than an Embassy Suites or Hampton Inn complimentary buffet. Oatmeal, scrambled eggs, mushy French toast, pancakes and the usual sausage and bacon are offered along with made to order omelettes... More

Worst buffet the hubby and I have visited in years. We were there on a Sunday afternoon at about 12:30. Price for the "champagne brunch" was about $15 per person and it was maybe worth $2.00 each. That woud be for the soda pop. Champagne was brought to our table...warm and flat. Fruit was slimy, eggs benedict so tough I... More

My husband is a person who loves Prime Rib Dinners and at the Prime Rib Room at Laughlin's Riverside was the best he ever had. My advise is to be prepared to be sent for a salad bar 1st and then a potato and vegetable bar 2nd...the carver comes to the table. Wish I had nothing else but meat 1st... More

The setting, windowside by the river, was excellent for the Christmas season. The service was impeccable and the food was deemed excellent by the three of us in the dinner party. It is a restaurant I would heartedly recommend and will return anytime I am in the area.

No reason to be rude about this place unnecessarily. Don Laughlin has a class act at this property. However, the buffet does NOT cut it. We went the day of the carving special. Look, national buffets make good at $10 per customer and serve decent food. Don't tell me Laughlin can't make out like a bandit at $14 with lesser... More

Celebrated my wife's birthday. Our view was right on th CO river with Windows floor to ceiling. Had the seafood Italian with mussels, scallops and shrimp. It was superb. Wife had the Veal Oscar which was good but not the best she ever had. Overall a great meal and we would do it again and not overly pricey.
