Plenty of choices on the buffet. Service is always good. They have salads and many entrée choices , a lot of desserts including soft ice cream.

Don't bother going on a Saturday night unless you like mussels. No crab legs and only 30-40 count shrimp. Average breaded shrimp and breaded clam strips. Lots of filler foods... not sure what they thought was worth $28. Staff was friendly but not typically why you go to a buffet.

There was so much food! It was a little bit expensive, but we all enjoyed it immensely! So nice to take a break of casino playing and horse racing with a nice meal!

This is one the better Casino buffets. I'm not a big fan of buffets because most tend to thrive on quantity, not quality. Plus, I usually only eat one plateful; more into grazing than gorging. The food selection was appealing, properly seasoned and prepared. For you desert fans, plenty of cakes, cookies, pies and other delights. Enjoy!

I do not recommend this buffet at all. It is in the middle of a casino which I guess is the attraction to go there. But the food is subpar. We didn't like anything on the buffet at all. It's also not very clean as far as the tables go.

I was a little taken aback by the price, but I try to keep in mind that Hollywood doesn't have any local competition so there's no reason to keep prices low. But the food was great and service was awesome.

The appearance of the inside of the restaurant is nice, but that is about all that can be said. I realize buffets can be a hit or miss, but this one is a certain miss. The food appears and tastes like it is prepackaged food. The food was not hot and much of it was dried out and should have... More

I wish I had internet access before trying this place so I could have consulted Trip Advisor first! To be fair, the food was fair quality, but I was afraid to try some of the selections because they looked a little old and dried out. The kitchen staff didn't pay much attention to maintaining the buffet line as there were... More

The food was okay. Some selections were better than others. Asian food station could use alot of help. No noodle and meat selections. The service on the other hand was excellent! It was an okay experience and worth about what we paid.

For a buffet in a casino they do quite well. The food is diverse a little bland but good. For a non-ethnic buffet the pot stickers are good and my favorite on that side of the buffet. This visit included an elderly parent and the host saw that my parent was a little unstable and took him by the arm... More
