The wait for a table seemed to take forever but the selection was nice ! Almost anything you could want. Too bad you have to pay for a mixed drinks when they are free on the floor!

We have been to every major Sunday Brunch place in Reno, and Toucan Charlie's is certainly in the top three, and depending on the day, might be the best! Wide variety and great quality of food, usually with wonderful friendly service.

I've eaten here several times since the new renovations. The food is better than the average buffet as they keep it fresh. The prices are fairly obscene, I paid $30 per adult for sunday breakfast. They did have standard buffet offerings as well. Dinner runs about $45. For those prices, I'd much rather eat a fine dining restaurant. Frankly, it's... More

We've been here a few times since the remodeling. Like some other reviewers, we actually liked the old décor better. The remodel seem more like a traditional buffet. The food is still good and plenty of selections especially some new dessert offerings. Of course the prices are now higher, but still within the range that we like. During the remodel,... More

We were skeptical to eat here based on some of the negative reviews. Our family (including 2 teens) loved the food and left with our stomach's busting! There are amazing options including Asian, Mexican, pizza, salads, seafood, and a carving station to name just a few. I've never seen a bigger dessert option including homemade gelato. I personally don't eat... More

With the new look, there are more selections, and plenty of food. Carving stations, cooking stations, chocolate fountain and even cotton candy. And did I mention a great selection of ice creams (and even sugar free desserts).

Their "Re-imagined" restaurant is sadly lacking in imagination. I was excited to see the new and remodeled restaurant, expecting something like the Pirates of the Caribbean, but was highly disappointed. Instead, they offered us a stark, sterile and boring cafeteria with much less items from which to choose. Only two redeeming factors; Pho and cotton candy. Alas, I pointed out... More

The new remodel is terrible but the food remains fantastic.Check out Friday and Saturday and get your fill of king crab legs and steamers or oysters rockefeller. Sunday's enjoy champagne cocktails.
