“bring a big appetite for the all you can eat crabs on weekends”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

I go here once every two months. The Red Rock Cafe buffet style restaurant is always bustling on all you can eat crab nights which are Fri, Sat and all day Sun every week. The crabs are very plentiful and their New England clam chowder is very good. THe salads are cold and so fresh. The waiters are always around the tables either cleaning them to make them neat because of the crab shell mess and always eager to get you whatever you need.We usually play a little roulette or a few of the slots. Made money the past 4 out of 5 times here pure luck on roulette. The slots not so much. While it is an old fashioned type of place I go for the crabs and usually go to Vegas for the big gaming. By the way, the crab fiesta is only $14.50. Cant buy it in the grocery store for that price. I have no complainst about the place. It is what it is but the Buffet is inexpensive and fresh and good and worth it! Beware no free drinks while you are gambling, that is, only free soft drinks no alcohol.

“Outdated and Boring Slots”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

I was a frequent player of the slots and enjoyed the quarter machines with bonuses. They have now changed the denomination to pennies. Poor return on your bet. Won't be back! Outdated, poor paying slots.
