We dined on a Friday evening, as that is crab and seafood night. The choices were innumerable in every way: culture, appetizers, salads,. entrees', vegetables, side dishes, fresh fruits, decadent desserts, soft-serve ice cream, etc. The chefs stand at stations, professionally preparing special orders should you wish. The waitstaff was so attentive and kind. They would rotate around the dining... More

This buffet has lots of delicious choices. All the items we ate were delicious. The servers were friendly, attentive and pleasant. They are aware of what utensils you would need for the menu item you select. This service is offered without your needing to ask. Depending upon the day you go, the menu choices include roasts (turkey, beef and ham),... More

The buffet was well stocked and had a very good variety of food. On Friday night the price is higher as crab is served. Friendly people and on a Thursday night the wait wasn't very long even though we hit it at a popular dinner time. My only complaint was the prime rib was almost raw. The rest of the... More

This buffet has so many items to choose from. Soups, salads, pasta station, 3 meats in carving station, mexican food, shrimp, mussels, clams and many other items. The dessert selection was great as well as the ice cream. Seniors can take advantage of a discount with a players card. It is well worth the money even if you don't qualify... More

Over the years, I've been to a number of buffet restaurants in Reno, Carson City, and other northern Nevada towns such as Wendover and Winnemucca. The experiences varied, from pretty awful to excellent. The Rum Jungle's buffet is definitely in the upper range of that scale, with a very large selection of mostly good dishes, minimal wait times, and good... More

It was my second time eating at this breakfast buffet and I liked it better the second time! No wait in the buffet line, seated right away, drinks were ready quickly and all of the items we tried were very good. We frequent the Harrahs Forest Buffet a lot in south lake, but we liked trying a different place while... More

With a Senior Discount (for two people weekend $34.41) you get as Buffet with too many choices to try it all.

From ribs to prime ribs, assorted pizza well buffet ... there is something for... More

We went to the buffet for a large family meal. After standing in line 20 minutes to be seated, and paying for 12 people, they then informed us the buffet would be closing in 15 minutes. The food was good, but we had to load up multiple plates to be able to taste the food offered. Normally at a buffet... More
