“Not your typical casino "cheap eats"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food! This is a pretty small buffet as casino buffets go. But they are big on taste! EVERYTHING was cooked right, seasoned right, hot where it was supposed to be and cold where it was supposed to be.

The price was quite a bit more than we are used to at the other tribal casinos, but the quality more than made up for it.

There were only two negatives that we observed. One ... if you get seated in the back by windows and the sun is shining, it gets HOT! And, second ... a family came in and had several kids in the 5-10 age range and they were quite disruptive. The kids were running around and bumping into other guests, playing and yelling and, of course the parents couldn't be bothered. The staff didn't do or say anything other than to quietly apologize to the other guests as they attended to the tables.

“Expensive on Fridays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Food is good, but toooo expensive on Fridays. Didn't go in because of the price, went to the starlight lounge for our dinner. It is affordable. :)

“New Restaurant Management Lacks Vision for Variety”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We've loved the creekside buffet for many years. That being said, the restaurant has new management and they have gone to a single menu for the entire week. Same dishes each day with the exception of the soup of the day and the carving station. If you visit more than once in a week it feels like you are eating leftovers. Food presentation has also changed not all of it for the better. Staff is stil wonderful.

“Great for seafood lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

This award winner restaurant is located inside Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington; about 25 minutes from I-5 (Exit 104) in Olympia. I used to visited them on my way to and/or return from Portland. I have also tried from Port Townsend (after taking the ferry) to go south to enjoy the view of Puegot Sound to arrive the restaurant. I love very much their local seafood - oysters & clams. Apart from that, you can also have crabs and shrimps with all other dishes usually found in any buffet. Prices are extremely reasonable and seniors can enjoy discount. This time, I tried their Sunday Brunch and only paid less than $13 under senior rate (regular rate is less than $16). All my friends are happy with the food especailly the clams. They also have great buffets on Friday and Saturday nights as well as important holidays when you can find King Crabs or Snow Crabs for around $25.
