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.

We went to The Skagit Casino for dinner at the Market Buffet arriving about 4:30PM. Very few people, seated quickly and the service was good. The food was not though. Considering the dinner started at 3PM the food was not hot. I had fries (cold and hard) biscuit 9Hard as a rock) ham (warm), Asian BBQ Pork (warm and chewy).... More

Liked everything, have done for about 7 years! Nice size buffet area, friendly staff, good variety of food, nice deserts (Boston Cream Pie, unreal!) - nice mix of salads, Asian/American dishes and home-style...always look forward to a visit to the Buffet at Skagit...very reasonable prices too!
