“GOOD BREAKFAST”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Had a good breakfast with made to order omelets. Had the usual buffet things, not a big selection but enough to satisfy. The ladies were very friendly. Price is good with a players card. The only thing is it is only open on the weekends.

“Do not waste your time!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I thought this was just about the worst meal we've had on our whole trip across country. It was their Asian themed night. The egg rolls were soggy, their dipping sauces bland....Everything tasted as if it had been sitting around a while. Buffets are not my thing....and this is an excellent example of why.

“Great Prices”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I ate here on a Sunday for breakfast and the price and food was great. The service was average, but I was just amazed by how cheap it was for what you got. Definitely coming back.

“We liked it before, but it has gotten even better”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

We have been enjoying this buffet for several years as it constantly delivers decent food for a good price. The room itself is more attractive than some others on the river. When we visited Laughlin this spring we had both dinner and Sunday breakfast there.

We felt the dinner quality had improved somewhat from last year but what really impressed us was the breakfast on Sunday morning. Other hotels are offering brunches on Sundays for inflated prices while we paid only $15.54 for two with our player's cards, tax included for breakfast here.

The breakfast layout was awesome. It was far superior to what is offered on a daily basis at the neighboring properties. They had a large selection of fresh fruit. There were three different kinds of yoghurt, assorted pastries, a variety of eggs including an omelet station. there are pancakes, waffles, french toast and all the breakfast meat choices and potato selections you could want. There was also cooked oats, cream of wheat and grits.

The quality was first rate. The Island Buffet only serves breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. It is definitely worth checking out. We loved it.

“Great way to start the day”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

We ate breakfast here twice. The food is good for the price. An omelet station was great and will make you eggs any way you like.
