Epic Buffet worse than terrible

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... read 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.

The food was nicely presented and the place was clean, however the food was tasteless, there was no seating for six people and really what we found the most negative is that they only served wine from a box. The server could not tell us even what kind of wine it was. Needless to say we did not have a... More

We travel often to Vegas and we enjoy a lot of the buffets out there. Being a smaller casino we were not sure what to expect but the quality and selection were very good. From salad to soups, carving station, Italian, Asian, and comfort foods like mashed potatoes and fried chicken. All were hot, fresh and very tasty. Save room... More

It was a champagne brunch with many fine foods and desserts. Ham and turkey carved fresh. Lots of other meats like leg of lamb, pork brusso, and some baked or broiled fish. Excellent dessert selections including chocolate fountain. Servers only clear plates and bring soft drinks but were fine especially considering how busy it was. Getting seated took a good... More

Our son took us out here for a belated Mothers Day treat. We found the food to be fresh, tasty and hot. We were a little disappointed since we went on a Sunday afternoon and the only seafood was either baked or fried cod, which was good but we had been hoping for a better selection. The food available was... More
