Regular prices can be a little high, but if you get a free buffet, or dine on a specials day, take advantage! Good selections of both food and desserts. We left stuffed both times!

Nothing interesting at all. Everything tastes like it came out of a box. Waitresses have nasty attitudes. Definitely won't be back. I paid $50 for me and my 10 and 12 year old. Not worth the money at all.

I did enjoy this buffet while staying at the hotel. Lots of choices and the food was hot and presented well with labels so you knew exactly what was what. Desserts were plentiful. Wednesday is "Hump Day" and dinner was almost one half off about $14.00. The wait staff was nice and took care of their tables for any thing... More

Ate here for breakfast a couple of times during our stay. Bountiful choices of not only breakfast food but lunch and dinner items as well. Very good and too many choices.

The restaurant was clean, and the food was displayed quite nicely. There was a ham carving area, and I waited for quite awhile and gave up. No one came to assist me. They offered a variety of breakfast hot foods, but the drawback with all of them, was they were not very hot at all. They tasted good, but the... More

What a big number on 4 of July lunch buffet. $17.99; I thought it should have quite a few good meal on it.Not even have a dish of shrimp. Most of the dishes are so popular in most Americans breakfast ( cheap).

This was a typical brunch buffet. We've all seen it a thousand times. Nothing terrible, nothing great. Pepsi instead of Coke. Some breakfast items, some lunch items. Brunch at 1:00 PM seems silly to me anyway. I guess it's for people who are too lazy to get up for breakfast.

Had dinner and then breakfast here. It was "Perch Night" Thursday night, and a little pricey, but the food was good. Breakfast was also good, and reasonable at $7.77.

I love buffets, I would go to different venues and even casinos to sample different buffets despite I don't gamble, I had been to both Horseshoe in Whiting and also Rivers in Rosemont, both of them are quite good, even though Blue Chip is kinda out of the way, I still give it a try, but totally disappointed. We went... More

Been a while since we have been to this eatery. Unfortunately, we found this buffet to be lacking quality in comparison to the buffets at casinos in the area. Food seemed old and not desirable.
