My! We sure have gone downhill since April. It is now a lot pricier so there were a lot fewer people eating here. And because there were so few people, the food had congealed - not very appetizing even to look at.

Have eaten at this buffet several times for dinner and food was always good but went to a mid week lunch buffet and had to be one of the worst ever. their main dish was chili dogs really could have done that at home with a can of chili and hot dogs.... poor choices for lunch and seemed like all of the food served was just fair.. would go back for dinner but never for lunch...

Parking is like the small-town atmosphere that it is, you can't even see a "town," as compared to the behemoth to the south (Tulalip Casino), and that's probably the best part. However, to get to this buffet, one has to walk across the smoke-infested showroom, with some evidence of smoke throughout the buffet, which has no barriers to said smoke.

The food is your basic buffet, it's not healthy food, it seemed more like warmed-over, cheap food. For instance, the crab tasted like lump crab that had been set on ice for quite some time and was slimy. Definitely not tasty one iota. The rest of the food was basic cafeteria fare, but the price certainly wasn't (I considered it high for what you got). The one bright spot was one of the wait staff who was very friendly and knowledgeable, e.g. he informed us that the senior citizen special on Sundays was no longer (and it seems like most of the casinos have ended their specials).

In summary, my advice is to go elsewhere for food. Bob's Burger & Brew down the road a few miles at the Cook Road exit is far, far better than this, and one doesn't have to ingest smoke to eat there. If you want to eat at a casino, go to Angel of the Winds just north of Arlington, but enter on the far left (west) if smoke bothers you!

I've been to this buffet several times and have never felt satisfied with the quality of the food. The salad bar often contains pieces of lettuce that are brown and wilted, and most of the time the lettuce is swimming in a fair amount of warm water. Really, no one wants to eat sopping wet lettuce! One time I witnessed a fellow diner conduct a "taste test" by putting her finger in the dish of ranch dressing before she added it to her salad. No one said anything to her or removed the dressing that she contaminated. Unfortunately, the hot food items are just as disappointing. You'll find the usual selection of poor quality meats, baked potatoes and Asian-influenced rice dishes. They also have a woefully dried out tray of salty baked salmon. The dessert station is the best part of the buffet. They have a decent selection of pies, cookies and cakes that will help you get your money's worth. Overall, I'd suggest driving a bit farther south to the vastly superior buffet at the Tulalip casino if you want to actually enjoy your meal.

They do a good job here for a buffet. Good selection. Seafood on Fridays is a highlight. Try the bananas Foster!
