Had dinner there on a Saturday night. They featured an all you could eat seafood buffet. The food was superbly prepared and very tasty. The variety was excellent as well. The main event was snow crab, but they had oysters on the half shell, shrimp, baked fish, and all the trimmings. If you go away hungry, it's your own fault!

Service ok...food ok...for $26.00 a person they are... More

All the fried food (shrimp, scallops) were greasy like the food was not drained after it was fried. The peel and eat shrimp were over cooked and mushy. The snow... More

We have eaten at several casino buffets outside of Las Vegas and this is probably one of the best. There was a large variety of food and it was prepared very well. The service was very good and attentive. There is a wide variety of choices from salads, Italian, Asian, American, and Hispanic. There is also a large dessert area.... More

The omelets for breakfast are delicious. There is not as good a variety as there used to be but what they did have was good.
