“Overpriced For The Quality Of The Food”
Review of The Buffet

We had dinner here on a Tuesday night, while staying at the hotel in the same complex. The quality and variety of the food was average at best. And any competent food service worker would tell you that most of the food is not being kept at the proper temperature, which is a safety concern. The carved baked ham tasted good (but was nearly room temperature). The fried chicken was dry, and seemed to have been left over from lunch. The lasagna bake and pizza in the Italian section were hot and fresh, an exception in this buffet. The desserts were tasty, and there was a good selection of sugar free desserts. The room is large and well decorated, and service was fine, after a short wait to get our first drinks (we were back with our food and had started eating before they arrived). For $16 each, we expected a better experience.

The food is good and there is a decent variety. There is Italian, Barbecue, Asian, and salad and desert. I really enjoyed the Barbecue section. The BBQ Baked Beans were fantastic. The price may be a little steep, but the great food makes up for it. Something or everyone's taste.

We usually end up eating at a buffet when we can't decide what we really want to eat. This place never disappoints with the choices and taste of the food.

Great selection of food and it was all wonderful. Only downside is that my 6 year was 16.99 and his didn't eat much. I would like to see better pricing for children., Ameristar is a very nice casino as well!

Horizon buffet is like all the other casino buffets with typical buffet food other thsn on Friday nights they serve all the snow crab you can eat for $27

As crab legs go they were very good with only a few legs soggy

So for the money on a Friday night you may enjoy the unlimited food from Horizon Buffet enriched with tons of crab legs
