Lots of false advertising here. Don't need to try. Their promotions aren't worth anything at all. Do NOT even think about coming here because it is not fun. Pfffft. I've given up my VIP membership way before the promotions ended. Not worth trying. Other dishes...More

We have been to this casino several times in the past year. The all you can eat lobster buffet is out of sight. However the price has steadily gone up. So now we only go for a special occasion

Food is always good at this buffet. It is pricey but no more than competing quality buffets. Prime rib and lobster are the ticket. Lines do get long some nights so check ahead.

Dinner is great coz of the seafood selection. But why is the lobster area being manned to 2 per plate? I would have preferred to get the quantity I like and avoid going back.

You have to be 21 to enter the building. Unlike Harrahs Rincon that is family oriented. It is down the road about 6 miles. Valley View is for the adults. It is a great place so please utilize them for your groups of adults.
