I have eaten here many times. The food has always been good. In the past the drink service has been appalling but they seem to have fixed this by being able to get your own now. Being a buffet means you can get the food you like and how much you like. I have often taken visitors here.

Dinner buffet with 2 sittings - 5:00 - 7.45pm or 8:00 - 9:00pm. Foods were tasty no matter cold plate, hot plate and desserts. Environment is casual.

Value was ok. Food was nothing great. It was handy to have a meal but probably would try somewhere else.

Had a buffet dinner here and found it only just reasonable considering the establishment. There was plenty of variety of food but was not as palatable as its other Casino in Launceston, the cost I felt was a bit high for what was on offer.

Nice Buffet, not too many choices which can be a good thing sometimes, but what was on offer was good tasty food. Reasonably priced with very friendly and busy staff.

Excellent choices of food. A good place to eat when you don't want to spend a lot of time dining in a restaurant, and it's also a great opportunity to sample the local foods of the area.

This always busy coffee shop is a great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The extensive menu(s) is/are usually smorgasbord style, although at dinner there is an a la carte menu available. The décor is snappy and has recently been refurbished. Fresh and clean. Tables close to the windows offer upriver views for interest. Great for groups and singles. Always... More

We had a package for a show, hotel room and breakfast. Being a buffet style breakfast we wondered how it would turn out, but it was very good. The variety was great and the quality was good. Would definitely have breakfast here again.
