“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Not bad but not also great like Las Vegas casinos.

It's only $12.95, you can really expect filet mignon or to die for food.

If you compare with other buffets, it's pretty comparable.

“Never Again, Don't Eat There”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

I ate at the buffet on Sunday, August 3rd, during the "Brunch". The food was cold and had little flavor. When I asked the employee to bring out some fresh gravy, he just blew it off. Many of the entrees were missing and it took a long time to be refilled. The best part of the buffett were the cookies. Beware it was terrible!!

We've eaten at this buffet several times over the years. This trip the food was the worst we've ever had at a Lake Tahoe buffet.

“Sea Food Friday/ Prime Rib Saturday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

If you have a craving for Sea Food the Montbleu at South Lake Tahoe is where your appetite should take you, Reasonably Price $$,Family gathering or larger crowds need to start lining up around 4:30 pm to get arranged seating. The Doors to the Buffet open from 5:00 pm- 9:00 pm . Now if your a hardy beef lover Saturday night is super feast of Prime Rare Rib, you can have the Chef put the Rare Prime Rib on the Hot flame behind them when slicing your favorite choice. All of the rest of the Entree's are very good.

“Better than most in South Lake Tahoe, but not like what you see in Vegas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

My son and I were skiing at Heavenly and thought we would try the buffet. Having been in Vegas often and tried various buffets at the big hotels, I had an expectation level that was probably too high. Unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. The overall quality was good but not great. The presentation was very good and the service even better.
