“A bit pricey and the food is only average”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Tried the Saturday "carvery" and the food was only average. Lots of traffic though but given the fact it was a Saturday night that could have been an anomoly. . .nothing special in my opinion and certainly not worth the price tag!

“Seafood Buffet: Wow”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went to the Friday night seafood buffet and the diversity and quality of the food was exceptional. Crab, shrimp, swordfish, sea bass, and several other cuisines were all very good. The deserts were also very nice, the creme brûlée was wonderful. Very reasonably priced for what you get. Highly recommended.

“Just okay for a buffet; good for large groups”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

This is your typical casino buffet. The good news is that large parties can pay individually since everyone pays before being seated. There was a large variety of choices: American, some Chinese/Japanese, Mexican, Italian, and tons of desserts. Nothing was particularly stellar. The wait staff did an okay job of keeping plates cleared off the table.
