“Always good food. Great deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

I can't count the number of times we've eaten here over the years and it's always good. It's far better than most mass-produced buffets -- the quality is excellent.

On our most recent visit, we both had the custom sauteed shrimp. The pleasant fellow cooks it just the way you want. I usually have just shrimp, mushrooms and cheese but my husband adds in a little bit of garlic, spinach and some other stuff as well. Mmmm, so very good :-)

My husband enjoyed both the prime rib and salmon. We figured he ate about $75 worth of food at regular restaurant prices, LOL. Shhhhh, don't tell the management! Oh wait, they make a lot of money on the gamblers, so it's okay.

We always use the west entrance to avoid the casino smoke. Price is still very reasonable at about $15 per person. The food areas are kept very clean as well as the tables. Service is always friendly and efficient.

Well worth it :-)

Darn, I always forget to take photos...

“Plenty to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Well lit, lots of offerings, friendly staff, decent price, no crab legs. Last year we went and they had dungeoness crabs but not this time. I guess we went on the wrong day.

“Ron White / Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Visited the casino for entertainment and meal. Buffet was great lots of choices. As busy as they were the staff at the buffet were very helpful and friendly to us. The entertainment was great and seating and crowd control was handled very good.
Having visited several other casino's in the state of Oregon I would consider Spirit Mountain top notch. Recommend highly.

“Best buffet anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

This buffet is within the Spirit Mountain Casino on the way to Lincoln City from Portland or Salem. More options than any other buffet around, and always fresh. Mondays and Fridays are seafood night but Monday is less expensive and the Sushi bar is the only missing link. All the cold or hot crab you can eat on these two nights, steamers, various types of shrimp, salmon, as well as regular meat and potatoes selections of all kinds. Also has a stir fry bar where you can choose your elements and they will cook fresh and bring to your table. Huge salad bar and desert bar. You will not go away hungry nor disappointed. A little spendy on Friday and Saturday nights.

“Great Value for Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Actually drove pass the casino many times before but unable to try their buffet. This time, we succeeded to stop by on our way from Lincoln City to Woodburn. Despite no senior rate offered, the price is still good - great value for money in terms of food choices and tastes. Restaurant is big, clean and bright. Food choices are great but less seafood (except shrimps).
