We LOVE this place. We eat here for every birthday, anniversary or other special occasion. The food is the best. So many excellent choices. The quality is fabulous with none of that casino-ey feeling

I know, I know, you have had the glum hotel buffet, but this one is different. It is actually good! Mexican, Asian, American, they have it all. I am a real foody and I was so impressed with the quality, taste and appearance of all of the food that I searched for the manager, Marcus Nichols, to tell him how... More

We had a free comp voucher for a free meal...but having waited in the queue for 25 minutes or so and barely moved with about 50 people in front we bailed out in disappointment. Others in front had also left the queue who had waited longer. Maybe there is a better solution ?

Every time we go to Reno, we always make sure to go to Toucan Charlie's buffet. We generally do the steak & seafood buffet on Saturday night & the champagne buffet on Sunday. The quality of the food for both is always above par. The seafood options are plentiful & always so delicious. The shrimp is so good, and they... More

This place is spotless, has options galore and everything I tasted was delicious! While the restaurant is huge it is cleverly broken up into small sections. Salads, soups, sides and endless main course dishes are all really good. The desserts are noteworthy as well. The staff was just flat awesome.

Thursday night dinner was a very pleasant experience for us. The service was great, the food was great, and we left feeling that this is the best buffet in Reno. Everyone we encountered from the cashier, to the host, to the table server, to the food servers was pleasant, polite and professional. We were made to feel welcome and treated... More

If you are staying at the Atlantis this buffet is not bad. Convient yes however the food is very average. Nothing special just a buffet. The immense dessert selection is the best part.

I have eaten here several times before for breakfast. So I thought I would try it again. This time just wasn't very good. I like real hash brown potatoes, but what they now serve are the McDonals type of a fried hash brown patty. The fresh fruit was rock hard. I guess times have changed in Reno. The quality of... More
