The changes that have been going on lately are not good. The food selection has been cut, the quality has gone down, the prices has gone up. It seems management has become overly greedy. Maybe it is an effort to try to show higher profits during the pending sale of affininty gaming, owners of rail city. The higher customer costs... More

I stopped in to try the buffet. The food was bad quality, overcooked, not many choices, and tasted bad. The waitress was rude, and took a long time to bring our drinks over. It is a little cheaper than others, but a complete waste of money.

This is where the locals go. Not best food. We have eaten here half a dozen times. First couple of times bbq was good. Gone down hill after that, unfortunately. Play the machines a bit and the drinks once in awhile can be fun.

The buffet expanded slightly better. Fairly priced. Enjoy their dessert options. Favorite menu item is definitely their burger-burger fry-fry. Hits the spot every time. I love the shark they hang above the main entrance for their seafood Friday buffet theme. Main complaint is waiting time and some of the waiters tend to be rude.

Rail City Casino, needs a little work. the buffet was just ok, about what you would expect for average casino. Nothing like the Grand, but that is another review. The casino was not very busy. Has slots but not a lot of table games that I noticed.

The old buffet offered senior special prices, but with the upgrade, you have to gamble so much to get the discount, senior or not. Bad policy. Food not any better, just pricier.

Rail City has a nice selection of slot machines and some older slot games that you don't find everywhere. The drink servers are a little slow and sometimes hard to find. The casino floor is a little smokey for my taste. The Ale House is always a good choice for a quick inexpensive meal. They have a good selection of... More
