“Worst Buffet EVER”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

This had to be the worst buffet I have ever experienced. It's was hard to believe that this was a buffet within a casino property. The food here was awful in appearence, quality & taste. Most everything seemed to be packaged/factory made. Most was either tasteless, dry or just all around poor quality. Sad to say that soup & salad was the best feature of this casino buffet. It changes over from brunch to dinner at 2:00, we went at 2:15 so at this point the food should have been fresh not dried out.
There wasn't even a desert on this buffet that was good. I will compliment our server who was quick to brink us drinks.
If you find yourself at Mohegan Sun Casino in PA, ask to walk through and check out this buffet before you pay to enter.

“Uh, a little nasty.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

While the food was ok, the messy people were a turn off. People just don't know how to fill their plates at a buffet. They act like they arent' going to get anymore and it spills off the plate. Maybe those shields are too low or something, but it got a bit messy. The food is kinda boreing too. Trying to be fancy but not.

“Average buffet.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

A lot of items to choose from. Soup and salad bar. Many entrees to choose from. A lot of the hot food items seem to be either pasty or lacked flavor. They had many Chinese items to choose from the day that we attended. They were certainly not authentic Chinese. I found that the unprepared items contain more flavor than ones prepared by the restaurant. The dessert bar had a lot of items including hand dipped ice cream and sugar free selections.

“food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Timbers Buffet is a great place to eat. Large variety of foods and desserts. I like it because the price is just right not overly expensive and convient to the casino

“nice selection, good quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

have been to the timbers buffet at mohegan sun casino several times and found the quality very consistent. a selection of 3 or 4 soups and at least 3 meat choices along with fish and seafood ( steamed mussels this past time ) make for a nice meal. we like going on a sunday night when it isn't so busy.
