The all you can eat buffet should be visited when you are hungry. First, it ain't cheap. Secondly, the food is OUTSTANDING. Really liked it. Ate there twice during our visit. The staff is friendly and the place is clean. Save room for desserts, yes...More

The buffet is great - people come from miles away to enjoy it. Desert is included but the apple crisp would be better with ice cream! Ordering from the menu is ok but it would be helpful if side dishes came with the entry.

Frankly, there are few choices for dining in Nauvoo. This one provides an adequate, tasty, moderately priced buffet. Next time I would do just the salad bar

Sorry I am a customer not the owner.
We are traveling through Nauvoo in June and would like to know how much the buffet at the Hotel Nauvoo is this year. We are also wondering if we need to make reservations for the buffet.

The Hotel Nauvoo restaurant closes during the winter when there are few guests in Nauvoo. They typically reopen in March. Check them on-line. I just phoned them - the dining room will reopen on 17 March.
