“Nice buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Had dinner here while on tour. On 18th floor with great view of Lake Tahoe area. Food was quite good for a casino buffet. Only thing we did not find up to par was the sushi. Filet and fried shrimp where very good. Service was excellent. The gentleman assigned to our group was very friendly and efficient. Could not have asked for better service.

Excellent Desserts. Very good breakfast foods.The staff were very attentive. The only downfall was the salmon. The view is beautiful no matter where you sit!

“Buffet with a View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Have eaten many times here over the years. View especially at sunset is awesome of the lake and/or mountain. Food is consistantly good and fresh. Actually the sushi rolls were very good and went back for more. Do expect though to stand in line if you are visiting during prime hours. Not quite sure why the wait.

“Loved the Prime Rib and the Lemon Pie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

Went on a Tuesday evening early evening before it got crowded. No line. Beautiful view. Outstanding selection of foods. Everything was fresh. Prime Rib was excellent. Good choice of sides. Loved the sweet and sour chicken and pot stickers. Yummy Lemon Meringue Pie. Plus Total Reward members received 10% off.
