Thoroughly disappointed. Waited in line for over an hour, only to be seated and then wait another 30 minutes in the actual buffet line. They had one person carving meat. That's what the holdup was. By the time you returned to your table, the food was cold. People were cutting in the line for meat, which was rude. Quality of... More

We came here because we were coming to Talking Stick for a Terry Fator concert. We had heard it was amazing! I only concentrated on the King Crab legs, which was AMAZING!! My family had the sirloin steak and they weren't impressed. My husband loved the ham and mashed potatoes. The food selection wasn't what I thought it would have... More

Visited on a Friday for dinner. Variety was excellent with food being good not excellent. Not surprisingly the lines for the crab legs were long. Service was great.

For the low price of $22 per person, the food was amazing. So much shrimp and oysters, as well as salmon prepared in so many different ways. There was Asian, Mexican, Italian and more. The desserts were so delicious, with so much to choose from. The tart crust literally dissolved as it hit the tongue!

My husband and I was looking for a brunch spot. This was our second time to this buffet. They have mimosas or champagne they serve with your brunch and all you can eat seafood, steak, and many other choices. They have lots of deserts and ice creams too! Our waiter was very helpful. We had a great brunch and ate... More

Everything we tried was very, very average. Nothing we tried was close to being memorably good. Golden Corral has much better food. It's a real shame because the facility is beautiful and clean. We were considering their Thanksgiving buffet....but not now.

Huge selection of foods. Everything was fantastic. We had the dinner for $21.00 and got MORE than our moneys worth. The ham and beef roast were melt in your mouth

We were there for the Sunday brunch....prime rib, King Crab legs, cdefinite upscale Chinese food, and (again) upscal desserts were amazing! So much so that we returned for dinner that night....truly one of the best buffets we have ever eaten at.

After reading all the good reviews about this casino buffet, finally gave it a try on Monday evening for dinner. I guess I might have picked a wrong day. Everything on the buffet seemed to be NOT so fresh and tasted like reheated from over the weekend. The meat and seafood (Roasted Chicken, Salmon, orange chicken, etc.) where all overcooked... More
