“Not just any buffet ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The River Rock buffet is excellent! The Sunday Brunch buffet is my favorite! There are so many items to choose from, allow your self plenty of time to graze. The view is awesome too!

“Lots of Choices But Nothing Extraordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

I have been to River Rock Casino Buffet a number of times. The price is ok for a buffet but some of the items have deteriorated in taste. The roast beef even though you asked for medium rare, will still be tough meat, mashed potato is quite good and tasty, wonton soup's taste is not as good as before, lots of salad choices and dessert galore. There are a lot of hot food items but as far as taste is concerned, nothing special to them.

What I have noticed is that River Rock Casino Buffet serves as an economical way of treating somebody without spending a lot of money.

Service is quite fast enough and waiters/waitresses are pleasant.

“Food is very good and lots of parking space.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

They have food for 70 years old to 10 years old. Lots of parking and the cost is only average.
Also it is very easy to find as it is very close to Richmond downtown. You can also take bus to there from Richmond Center. Can walk to Richmond night marker in Summer.

“not unless you are just hungry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

The fare was not exciting at all, and I am not that particular. It was overly simple food that you might find in a common cafeteria and after eating there one night, chose somewhere else the rest of the time. The service there, however was very good!
