I stay in the River Rock Casino Resort about 30 days per year and the last time I stayed, I received a free breakfast buffet for each day. For being free, it is worth it. However, if I was paying the $16 price for the buffet, I would be very dissappointed. Twice when I was there, I had to track... More

Bring your appetite if you want to make it worth your spend. The buffet has a wide assortment of salads and entree foods. Oh and don't forget the desserts. I didn't have to eat even the next day.

It's a buffet. It's pricey. They do have a wide selection of food but it's average. I do like it when they have crab on buffet but most of the time it's cold and chilled. Wish they would do hot crab legs. Some may find the selection weak but it depends on the day you go. Suggest you call ahead... More

It is located at the great River Rock Casino. I've been coming here since I was a child but I never noticed how expensive it was! However, considering their price, they do offer a wide selection of seafood and nice meats. It's a great place to go if you have large parties or functions. People are not limited to only... More

I have eaten here several times over the last couple of years, and this was the first time I had to wait a long period of time before being seated. We took turns waiting in the line up as others in our party rested. It was very busy, and I believe this was due to the upcoming Chinese New Year,... More

Well worth a dash in from the Canada Line. Has fantastic selection with great variety including Asian cuisine including Dim Sum. Fresh shrimp and mussels at the salad bar was an unexpected bonus. You don't have to gamble to experience the buffet. You may want to get a casino card though to get a reduced meal charge. If you have... More

We've been here too many times to count but my most memorable experiences would have to be with the amazing service we received from our server, Rodel.

This Buffet is very classy with a great view of the river and mountains. The food was out in smaller quantities to insure freshness. They had carved turkey, not a loaf, a whole huge turkey! Salmon was perfect, sushi too that night. Fantastic and attentive wait staff kept the table clean and the drink full. So enjoyed the time here.
