“Disappointed”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Have had buffet here many times, and it has always been good, but I had lunch here Monday and was really Disappointed. Most of the food was lukewarm and pretty tough and tasteless.
The clam chowder was good but not real hot and the salads were good. Had a lemon cake for desert, no flavor.
Since I don't get to Reno often I will probably go elsewhere in the future.

“Apparently quantity beats quality”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Huge selection of breakfast and lunch items, but apparently quantity beats quality here. Nothings tasted really good or stood out in terms freshness and preparation. Nevertheless for the amount of money paid it is still a good deal. Come hungry and be prepared for long lines.

“OK”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Nice selection of items. But, most of them were just average. My 3 favorites were the peel and eat shrimp, spinache salad, and prime rib. Desserts all look fabulous but are a bit of a disappointment. Nothing outstanding here

“Number 1 buffet in Reno”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

They advertise--and based on our experience, correctly--that this is the number 1 buffet in Reno. The range of foods is huge--Mongolian BBQ, salads, prime rib, specialties of the evening (pork loin in orange sauce last night), Mexican food, and the usual fillers. My wife ate only shrimp in many forms. Oh yes, and they have desserts--LOTS of desserts.

The service was superb--drinks were kept filled without asking, plates were quickly cleared. The place is spotless, and is certainly kid-friendly without becoming "kid-overrun."

We had no wait for a table--the only problem at the Atlantis Casino (where this is located) is parking. We got lucky last night, but have not been so lucky in the past..
