Very good at a great price

$14.99 for an all you can eat buffet with food this good is a steal. The prime rib was delicious as was most everything else. I have eaten here several times and my visits have always been very good.

We came up to the casino and went here. The selection was okay the prime rib was good once it was cooked more. I was expecting more for the price, better quality and hot food; the food was Luke warm other than the prime rib. Luckily we know for the next time.

I'm not sure if there's been a change in management or what has happened to the quality of the food. As soon as we entered the dining room there was an unpleasant smell. We should have turned around and walked out but we had already paid and every time we've been there in the past, the food was very good.... More

My girlfriend and I recently passed through the area and visited the Casino and saw the "Epic" buffet. The price was a great value for dinner and we checked it out. There weren't many tables full so that may have signaled what was to come. The food selection isn't all that great and many side dish items. The quality was... More

Donna was smiling and welcoming as we walked up. The service did not stop there, I was impressed with this location. Nice fresh selection offered.

So i've been here probably five times. My first experience were fantastic. The food was fresh and hot and there was a good variety. The next few times the food seemed like it had been sitting for a long time. It was dinner time and was moderately busy so you'd think it would be all fresh with the turn over.... More

We went to the Hollywood Casino for the day. Decided to eat at the buffet. It was $14.99 per person. Looked like a nice place to eat, not real crowded. The selection was not bad, fish turkey, ham and all the fixings. The problem was the food was COLD! I took Cod fish and it looked great, Cold! Vegetables were... More

Wanting to avoid the New Years Eve crowd, we went to Hollywood Casino in Grantville Pa. on New Year's Day. We arrived about 5 PM, and decided to eat in the Epic Buffet. What a mistake. They charged $24.95 for a buffet that was about one third breakfast food. I rarely eat breakfast at 5 PM, and if I did,... More

A great atmosphere, good food, great variety, friendly servers, and varying prices (depending upon the day of the week and the menu), And a great place for an Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Mother's Day dinner. No reservations needed, and no kids! And yes, you can dine there even if you don't gamble! Plus meal credits from your gaming can be... More

A little pricey but lots of selections. Nice to not have to leave the casino area to eat with people who have different tastes. Maybe not as sumptuous and tasty as Vegas buffets but for the area it was a treat and food was good.
