An excellent buffet is one where the food has that extra cook's touch of being delicious. Well, the food on this buffet is just....food.

This was an excellent buffet with a wide selection of food. It's not one of those gourmet buffets like the Bellagio in Las Vegas, but it doesn't cost an arm and leg either. It was plenty good for us, and I especially liked that there was thick New York steak pieces among the offerings. It, to me, made the buffet.... More

Fruit was not ripe, mashed potatoes were cold, paid $22 for dinner mid-week. Service was adequate, desserts were fine, prime rib was pretty good. Limited fish options. Did have shrimp which was OK.

The Sunday champagne brunch buffet costs $21.99 as opposed to prices over $35 at the Peppermill and the Silver Legacy. There is a wide variety of food to choose from, so despite the fact that the food is very average in taste (which is the nature of such buffets), there will almost certainly be something for everyone. On our recent... More

It was standard buffet fare with a lot of selection. We went at lunch as it looked like it served same food all day. Like the Mexican food best. Hubby liked ribs. Baked potato good. Prime rib fair. Great service.

We have had three visits to the Breakfast Buffet, luckily included in our room booking, and we are not impressed! Plus Points:- Good range of fruit and salad available. Wide variety of breakfast tastes catered for. Minus Points:- Food not freshly prepared. eg, Scrambled egg rubbery and almost cold. Bacon neither crisp nor hot, but serving cold or lukewarm food...

Locals often vote Toucan Charlie's Buffet at the Atlantis Casino Hotel one of the best in the area; we agree and enjoy going here when in the mood for a buffet. The variety of food is excellent. I like the shrimp and salad bar; the mongolian barbecue, and the wide variety of desserts the most. The macaroons are always very... More

When spending $120 for lunch for my family, I expected someone to take the plates and bring drinks without having to constantly wave someone for help.
