We are in transit to Seattle and thought we would come here for lunch. If you are thinking that this buffet will be at par with Vegas, think again. Our lunch was very average. Stale bread, romaine salad cores, entrees that should be served hot...More

Went there our first night. All you can eat buffet including Dungeness crabs. The roast beef was amazing also. Service was excellent. There is a line up for a reason so get there early.

It's been a few months since we enjoyed dinner at the buffet, in fact ever since the hotel reverted to snow crabs (instead of Dungeness crabs on Fridays and Saturdays. Most of the crabs were delicious but some still contained the saltiness of the brine....More

I think the best item on the menu was the king crab! Other than that, everything else was average: a seafood section, meat section, vegetarian, desserts and other common items you would find at a buffet in a casino.

While the hotel and casino are very nice the Sunday buffet was substandard. From the moment you are taken to a table the service goes down hill from there. They just showed us a table and walked away. We sat there for a few minutes...More

Actually, I wouldn't even feed my dog this food. The food quality is horrific and it's jammed packed for reason.

I wanted to come for the Sunday brunch and in my opinion it was absolutely amazing. Yes the price is a bit more expensive, however, there is so much food you end up skipping dinner!
