“Not a good idea...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I don't know what I was thinking, the inside and outside of this establishment are screaming red flags. There are also bums sleeping in tents beyond the parking lot. When you walk in you see the uncovered buffet food that looks like it's been sitting for hours (probably an accurate assumption) and there is no one to be seen. I will say, their watermelon was great! But really, don't go here. Don't.

“Never again.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

The place had poor ac and smelled like sea food. The food itself was not fresh and not a very good selection. I about had a heart attack when we got the bill, it was priced like a 5 star restaurant. Worst buffet ever.

“Awful food!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Not fresh, this place has not been good for the 12 years I have lived in Elko. The food is old, soggy, and bland.
