“Really Fresh Crab Legs!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

One of the items I didn't expect to be delicious in the middle of the desert would have to be crab legs, but the ones at the Atlantis Casino buffet were fantastic! They offered 2 kinds, Dungeoness and King crab legs, unlimited amounts. The rest of the buffet was good, but these treats were the stars! The New England clam chowder was also excellent with tons of flavor. The items that I thought were mediocre: chicken potstickers, wonton soup, baked beans, nacho chips with guac and salsa. I liked the variety, and the salad bar was very fresh (although they only have romaine and iceburg lettuce. Somce spinach would be a nice addition). The setup was very nice, as the buffet flowed all along the back wall, making it far from a cafeteria style arrangement.

I wasn't in Reno long, but after coming back from a week of camping, I was ready to put some food away! This is a spot you'll hear most people recommend in Reno, and the prices were great. We went on a holiday weekend, and only spent roughly $25 a person. Cheers!

Reviewed September 3, 2013

Wonderful variety of food and very tasty. I had a craving for chinese and wasn't disappointed. Then I was the muscles, oysters, wonderful salad and then there was the dessert bar. The service was great and our server was very attentive.

“Good food”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Great food and service. Don't usually like buffets but this one is yummy. Wish they had more kid friendly options for breakfast but the quality of the food is excellent.

“Didn't meet expectations”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Read so many good reviews on Trip Advisor so we tried it for a family Sunday Brunch while passing through Reno. We were disappointed in the quality of the food and service. Food was definitely at a lower grade than we expected and presentation was sloppy. Oh well-
