This is a pretty limited buffet and what there is isn't especially well prepared. An exception is the bread pudding. They also had a tasty sugar free berry pie, but the entrees are unimaginative and seem none too fresh.

This is the second time we have eaten here on a Sunday and the second time we were disappointed. Some of the food was cold and other food did not taste fresh. Salad bar and bread pudding was good. We have eaten here other days without issue but Sundays seem to be bad. We were staying in the hotel and... More

I'm on a rigid eating plan and this buffet had enough choices that I could maintain my acceptable food selections. The restaurant is on the edge of the non-smoking side of the slot machines, so although there was a slight smoking smell, we did not find it overly offensive. The price was reasonable, and we asked for a quiet table... More

Went Memorial Day and was surprised to find the lunch buffet was only $7.99. Now I know why. One half hour after opening the food looked like it had been sitting for two days. Selection was minimal at best, cold and tasted terrible. Too many other places to try. Wont be back

My! We sure have gone downhill since April. It is now a lot pricier so there were a lot fewer people eating here. And because there were so few people, the food had congealed - not very appetizing even to look at.

Parking is like the small-town atmosphere that it is, you can't even see a "town," as compared to the behemoth to the south (Tulalip Casino), and that's probably the best part. However, to get to this buffet, one has to walk across the smoke-infested showroom, with some evidence of smoke throughout the buffet, which has no barriers to said smoke.... More

I've been to this buffet several times and have never felt satisfied with the quality of the food. The salad bar often contains pieces of lettuce that are brown and wilted, and most of the time the lettuce is swimming in a fair amount of warm water. Really, no one wants to eat sopping wet lettuce! One time I witnessed... More

They do a good job here for a buffet. Good selection. Seafood on Fridays is a highlight. Try the bananas Foster!

There was not one hot item in the buffet. I actually hated it. I guess people who like prawns and crab ice cold and dripping with water will like it, but I thought it was a waste of money, plus, the wait time was 1/2 hr.
