There was a good variety of food to select from at the two meals we had in this area. We found the attendant to be quite efficient as to serving coffee and clearing away used plates. We had a pleasant view of the river.

We attended a friends birthday here. The quality of food was not like before(early years of the hotel) Not much selection, especially the salad bar. Not adequate service staff.Need to chase one. When you need something. This buffet used to be one of the best, but not anymore.

River Rock is a convenient place for family gatherings and buffets are a great way to entertain family. I like that you have to get up and get your own good. Our little ones certain enjoy being able to go and choose among the many treats. We have tried the Sunday buffets, the weekday lunch buffets as well as Christmas... More

I'm always a little skeptical of buffets. This one was amazing. As a vegetarian there was plenty for everyone! Desert was amazing! We actually returned for the weekend breakfast buffet too. Equally great. Recommend!

A good buffet but I think it is over priced I took a party of 12 and you are automatically charged a gratuity There is nothing wrong with that except you should get some service I practically had to insist on service was disappointed as I was entertaining family

This buffet has a lot of Chinese dishes. Salads and American dishes are available also. Nice desserts. Forget the ice cream.

We ate there last evening, again at the recommendation of fellow Richmond residents. First off, it's terribly expensive $39.95, for the buffet on weekends. Weekday day pricing is more reasonable $27.95. However for the quality of the food, both prices are inflated. Most of what we selected was quite obviously frozen (most specifically the seafood). The shrimp were flavourless, the... More

At first we thought the buffet was okay but not worth the price you pay. We've come to understand that that's just how Richmond is-it's generally overpriced everywhere. In comparison to other places, the buffet is actually very affordable and good for what you pay. There's lots of options at dinner, and great good for buffet standards. Seems very clean,... More

II had dinner with my family. Lots of choices and a great view of the River, a little pricey but very enjoyable.

We have come here more than a few times for family gathering. Today we had 4 adults, 7 seniors and 7 kids. The food in the past seemed so so but today everything tasted delicious. There was an expanded sushi section which I saw but did not eat from as I was full when I discovered it. I really enjoyed... More
