We go here from time to time. They probably have one of the best buffets along with the Nugget. Many items to pick from. There has to be something even for a picky eater. Desert bar is pretty good, I know because I saw a lady got back five times one night. Again, its a buffet, the girls are busy,... More

If sub-mediocre food and the smell of cigarettes is your bag, this is your place. Plumbing back up in dessert area was just the cherry on top. Will definitely do breakfast buffett at home next time.

This us the typical "big casino" buffet. It has a nicely done decor with a large food selection of well-prepared items. You really can't go wrong here, although it doesn't have the good value that many other Reno casino restaurants offer to locals. I'd go again -- but, unless there's a special coupon for locals, the incentive is lower than... More

We had dinner on a Sunday night (1-18-15) and the price was about $18/pp. Lots of food to choose from but I was there mainly for the Prime Rib. I like mine Medium Rare and the first piece I had was DELICIOUS! The second piece was a little bit more cooked than I liked but the best thing is that... More

This buffet is O.K not the best buffet in Reno as I had been told. There was a good variety of food and perhaps I did not select the food that had the flavor and zing that I wanted. It was like Denny's but more… The dessert bar was good. Prime rib good. Steak still mooing. Just O.K for $20.00... More

We are only staying one night here in Reno. We always stay at the Atlantis. It's way from the downtown area and I just feel it meets all of our needs. The buffet is always busy because it's worth it. The food was fresh a stack full. The service is always top notch. Our glasses never went empty and dirty... More
