$34 for the absolute WORST buffet I have ever been to. The food was COLD and disgusting. For that price I at least expected a good variety of HOT food. They had "roasted" turkey sliced under a heat lamp. Nothing like dry crusty cold turkey, and don't get me started on the "mashed potatoes". Many in our group were very... More

Nothing is surprised. However, food is fresh and dessert is very tasty and not over sweet. Nice place for family visit.

Chose this restaurant to meet up with friends and ended up eating at their buffet. We waited more than an hour to find out that their food lacked luster and it was unappetizing. Food were cold and constantly had to asked or wait for dishes or cups for that matter since there were not readily available at the stations. I... More

The chooses are awesome, the service is good and the price is right. We had a enjoyable meal with a glass of wine. The little desserts are so good and you can almost not feel guilty if you have a couple. Highly recommend a meal here!

We chose the breakfast buffet yesterday while staying at the River Rock. For two guests, we paid close to $40. Many hot food items were not labeled, so for the vegetarian in our group it was hard to decipher what she could and could not eat. After plating up, we choose to sit by a window, to enjoy a spectacular... More

We've been here many times on a weekdays and weekends but we never tried Friday night until tonight which we are celebrating our friends birthday. We were surprise how huge and choices of foods to choose. Lots of seafoods such as crabs and shrimps and many more. It's a bit pricey compare to an ordinary days. But it's worth.

More than worth the money and the senior rate applies to anyone over 55. Don't forget to grab a players card at the Casino and get an additional 10% off.
