If you are a Total Rewards member you get a discount, and then its well worth it. We enjoyed the selection and always go here when we go to the Casino.

The most bland meal for the greatest price. If you pay $28 for a buffet you'd think it would be worth the price. So far I've been hugely unimpressed. Nothing has any taste. They don't season ANYTHING. I can understand some people can't have salt but there are other things that could be used so the food has SOME taste.... More

This is my restaurant of choice whenever I stay at the hotel and play in the casino. I have yet to be disappointed by the food, the service and the staff. In realizing that everybody has different food tastes, I myself am not a seafood person, so I cannot comment on anything seafood, however, I am a meat person and... More

If your looking for a cheap dinner this isn't the place to go! It's an upscale Golden Corral. The food is always fresh but also processed. The staff and services were polite but it's a bit overpriced in my opinion. It's quick food if your in a hurry however

We attended this buffet on Thanksgiving. It was quite expensive and not as good as I had heard. Might have been because half the buffet was dried up food.

I have been to this buffet 6 times and disappointed 6 times. Seafood night is a joke, you stand around waiting for crab legs forever. Most times the food is picked over and over cooked. The staff is surly and act as if they are prisoners and not employees. The deserts are bland. The carved meat is either dried out... More

I ate at the Chef's Stage Buffet this past weekend. The Buffet is priced on the high side considering it no longer offers Crab Legs. The Buffet did offer oysters on the half-shell, various varieties of shrimp, and seafood. There are the usual American dishes, including Prime Rib, and other Buffet items. The selections was excellent but the quality and... More

Great buffet with lots of selections. There was so much good food that I wanted to try! I ate way too much and didn't know when to stop. The food was absolutely high end buffet quality. Many food styles were represented: Asian, Mexican, Italian, American, etc. BBQ, sushi, pizza, pasta, breads. The desserts looked good to, though I personally didn't... More

Great eating for the basic eater to the more adventurous! I love the fact they have everything from Pizza to Chinese to seafood to downhome cooking. Definitely worth the money. Also, the staff are super helpful and very friendly
