There is no doubt that this buffet is the best in reno... We planned to go to the buffet in March and the line was as long as a basketball court... It was a 20 min wait but it was worth it... The setting is in a jungle theme and it's spacious with lots of booths and tables...!! The crab... More

What a change to the normal buffet. Food is really good with great variety and cooked to perfection. Prime rib was superb and should not be missed. Tried everything from the soup to salads to lots of side dishes and all were very well prepared. Everything tasted like it was prepared fresh. This is one buffet I can whole heartily... More

We stayed at Atlantis for 5 nights in March and ate at this buffet three times. Each visit, many of the buffet items offered were similar, but the price varied each night depending on the featured items. On Monday night, we had one of the best cuts of prime rib ever. I ate it without using salt, pepper, au jus,... More

Went for dinner on a Monday evening. The selections were vast and plentiful. Constant attention by the staff kept the food stations clean and re-plentished. Our waitress was very attentive without being overbearing. All the food we tried was very good-none tasted mass-produced. Hint--Sign up for the Atlantis players card and you might get a 2 for 1 coupon.

We have eaten at many buffets in our travels including the best of Las Vegas. The Toucan Charlie's Buffet at the Atlantis Casino and Spa is as good as we have experienced. The food selection was huge, the service (our server was Tony) is exceptional and it is a great value. We had the Sunday morning brunch buffet and were... More

I had breakfast on a Monday Morning. The selections were some how limited, since it was a Monday. The food available was very good. They had a carving station, a variety of sausages, some Mexican items an a dessert station.

Once you get through the long wait, and the period of admission ($30 for Saturday steak and seafood) the food is good. The bacon wrapped filet and the ribeye were two steaks I was looking forward to. However the carne asada steaks that were fresh grilled in the mexican section outshines them both! So much flavor. The chicken fajitas were... More

I love Chili, but in this buffet you have to go and find a bowl to put the chili in. Most restaurants have bowls available next to the chilli, but not this one. I spoke with the duty manager of the buffet and he said that he would look into it. Since then I have eaten at the buffet at... More
