“One of our favorites on the gulf coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

The food is good as is the selection. The service is very good as compared to other buffets in the area. Crab legs and boiled shrimp are plentiful on the dinner buffet and a good variety of carved meats. Be sure to save room for dessert. There is an amazing selection of sweet treats and an ice cream bar that is the best that we have seen anywhere. The buffet is a bit pricey, but is in line with the rest in the area and if you play in the casino the comps are fairly generous. .

“Favorite breakfast buffet on the Coast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

For what you can pay for over-priced yuck like IHOP or Awful House, you can eat a better, more hearty breakfast here for about the same price. I like the selection of fresh fruit and protein, husband likes the variety, son-in-law likes the crepe station, and my daughter loves the (Starbuck-esque) custom coffees available that your waitress will bring upon request.

However, lunch and dinner can often be hit-or-miss, and Gtwnret is absolutely right - the line servers are almost always disinterested, and it is definitely a roll of the dice if you get an attentive or inattentive waitress at your table. (Waitresses, please take note - we tip accordingly.) Sometimes the food is pretty good, sometimes it is average, but fine dining it is not. They do offer a wide range of options, and I do like the fact that it is one of the buffets where I can find wheat-/grain-free options for myself. This is where we tend to go for lunch when we have out-of-town visitors, we're on a budget, and everyone wants something completely different.

Island View is one of the more affordable casino buffets on the MS Gulf Coast, and I have been to other buffets that cost more and tasted worse. If this buffet were more consistent in quality and some of the staff less indifferent, I would bump this rating up to "very good".

“One of the best buffets on the Coast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

The food here is so fresh an delicious. With so many choices you have no choice,but to fall in love with this buffet. They pretty much have everything covered from Asian food to Italian. I've been to pretty much every buffet on the Coast and out of all of them Island View has the best selection of food an desserts. The food is seasoned just right an very tasty. The only thing I would suggest is that Island View update their menu an prices on their website.
