“Excellent restaurant - Hidden behind a Casino!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

After a trip into the missile silo museum nearby we yelped up this place. Well we were hungry and it was a ways to either Tubac or back to Tucson. Hmm... A casino restaurant? Nervous we were, but we tried it and WOW. Top shelf. The staff was so nice, informative, and chatty, the Restaurant was a bit hidden in the back but I think that is expected at a Casino. I am sure that all Casino Architects have advanced Maze classes that are required. Inside the restaurant is fancy and inviting. The menu is excellent with lots of choices for all tastes. Simple me had an excellent club sandwich. I would definitely come back to try this place again as there are so many choices on the menu, and it appears to me to be well suited as a dinner house.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Probably the best in the area for both food and service. Prices are comparable to those charged at other 4 star restaurants. I would definitely eat here again and recommend to all my friends.

“seafood buffet on Tuesday Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Join their slot club and dinner is free for the fist buffet. Food was excellent, fresh and tasty. The seafood buffet had juicy prime rib and hot crab legs. The desert selection was varied but not as good as the main course.

“Excellent Seafood Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

This was our first time eating at the buffet inside the casino so didn't know what to expect. But we were pleasantly surprised with what was advertised as a Chinese New Year Buffet for $19.99. They normally have a seafood buffet on Friday nights for the same price, but don't know how it compares. We arrived at 5PM and got a seat immediately, but there was a long waiting line when we left. There was plenty of food at the buffet which was refilled as soon as an item was empty. Everything was delicious with mounds of cold and hot good-sized crab legs and cold shell-on shrimp. There was also a pan of steamed clams and mussels. My favorite dishes were the honey walnut prawns, lady's purse with hot sauce, oysters on the half shell, and shrimp salsa. Other hot items included pot stickers, lo mien, stir fried vegetables, and salmon. There was a soup/salad bar, carved prime rib and ham available which we did not try. The dessert bar included pies, cakes, brownies, and soft-serve ice cream. Our used plates were cleared quickly and drinks refilled promptly.
