I had lunch visiting only the huge salad bar. Such a wide assortment and all was fresh and attractively displayed.

It's a Buffett. Nothing special about it. The service was excellent. Our waiter always had our glasses filled and the busers were on top of clearing our plates. Unless you are staying there at the hotel I would recommend eating at the Peppermills Buffett.

Our expectations when we went to this buffet were not high and we decided to visit mainly on the presumption that we were sure to find something to our liking. Well we were wrong, there was so much choice and loads of it was of a high quality. It was clear that some people were well intent on trying everything... More

The selection is average compared to the buffet at the Peppermill. Food was OK, service was poor. I would recommend trying other options in Reno...

If call a seafood buffet consisting of the only fish fillet was overcooked salmon with a honey glaze, then you can have at it. Folks seem to grabbing the crab legs which were adequate. The other seafood available were mussels, clams, & oysters. For... More

The food here is very fresh, the flavors are very authentic to the various different cuisines (and delicious), and the price is about right for what you get.

The only thing that was too bad about the Buffet was that I just couldn't eat enough to try it all! This is not buffet food - this is restaurant food in a buffet setting. 55 and over for the senior discount!

I can brag about the Mexican food station. We just moved to San Fran from Texas and miss our good Mexican food. But we found it here. The enchiladas along with the carne asada was some of the best I've ever had. The crab legs were good too. I enjoy prime rib with horseradish and theirs is different in taste... More

The all-you-can-eat buffet specially the crab was excellent. Should be noted the all you can eat crabs is only on Friday Saturday and Sunday.
