When visiting Tunica, we try to visit this Buffet at least once while we are in town. Service and selection are really good.

This was once our favorite place to eat in the area but something has happened. Every time we go there seems to be less variety. Yesterday my son, who hadn't been in a couple of years, insisted on lunch at this buffet. They no longer serve Chinese, Mexican or Bbq.

We arrived 30 minutes after it opened and there were too many empty dishes that hadn't been replenished. It wasn't like the place was exceedingly busy.

We drove 3 hours to eat at the Seafood Buffet today. We gambled a little bit as we patiently waited for the crab legs to be put on the buffet. The food was wonderful as usual. We'll definitely be back!

We ate there at noon. The lunch was OK but seemed a little over cooked and dry, especially the pork chops and fried chicken. Also, It is also the only place I have visited that bragged about their Vietnamese catfish which, by the way, was also slightly overcooked.Their breakfast, however, was exceptionally good with a full selection of meats, eggs...

We ate here late. The food was very good with a great selection. The man tending to us was fantastic, a couple of women behind the buffet were quite rude. Our dinner was comped...so we enjoyed it that much more.

Nice buffet, on New Year's Eve! The crab legs, were tasty! There was a good selection, to choose from. If you like desserts, you must try their fudge!

Not a bad buffet for $11. Nice selection. Some food was fresh, some had been sitting for a while, but you can find a few good things. Friendly and good service.
