Nice buffet mid week but seafood on the weekends is a little better. Still lots to choose from and the food tasted good.

We were enticed to enjoy the buffet at the River Rock because of the Thai night feature. For $35.00 per person including taxes & gratuity I would prefer The Thai House which is just a few blocks away on No. 3 Road. I still don't understand why Canadian casinos don't offer meals at reasonable prices as they do stateside. After... More

For any special occasion, or just for a treat, I head to the Buffet at the Riverrock. I especially like the creme brule.

I have been to other Casino buffets. This one was very disappointing for meat dishes, salads and desserts. The seafood was good. But if you did not like seafood, you had few GOOD choices. It is also not licensed.

Compared to the buffers offered by Las Vegas, the price is about the same, but the food is way from being good. Disappointed of the buffet in such a high class casino and hotels.

Moderately priced for a buffet in Vancouver with very good food and a reasonable but not large selection of food options. All the typical buffet staples, with a seasonal selection of ethnic food choices.

Food is always great at the Rock. Pricey though for what you get. Carving station is great. As is the desert bar. Always good quality food.

This is a buffet that gets lined up, and has rules disallowing you to hold seats for friends who are late. I don't like being treated like I need them more than they appreciate my business. It's expensive for a buffet and while the selection is broad, and the food is good, there are 1000 better options nearby in Vancouver... More

Breakfast buffet was a bust. Evening/dinner buffet was excellent. I knew we weren't in for a culinary delight when I saw the hashbrown patties(Similar to the ones at McDonalds). Very few choices and half of it oriental cuisine. On an upper note though the omelet station was an unexpected surprise after viewing the sparse breakfast choices. Approx. $17.00 per person... More
