This was a great place to eat Thanksgiving dinner, not anymore. They charged me the dinner price but servered the cheap meal. Only Turkey and ham and a very few sides. Most of the steam tables were empty. Staff was nice the only redeming factor.

Arrived 1 hour after the buffet opened to find no turkey. After about 30 minutes, they produced a turkey beast that had been microwaved. Tough, leathery, totally disgusting. And all of this for a premium of $20 per person. Won't be back. Bill G from Hilltop Lakes Texas.

The food was excellent and abundant, can't say enough for the cooks. Our waitress, Linda Chappell ( whom we got both times, I had asked her full... More

If the food was $5.99 per buffet, it might be easier to swallow! $20 per person on "bbq night" was such a joke! I've never seen such a poor selection on a "buffet". The food didn't taste like it had any seasoning on it at all! The desserts were good. Will not return!

My wife and I had dinner here just as the Buffet opened at 5 P.M. and the "Linquine Pasta (this the way it is spelled on the label), looked very good and smelled terrific!. I went back again for more and my wife also got a plateful this time. It was "excellent"... great taste, creamy sauce, and tender, good tasting... More

Price for buffet is pricey for the food that is served there. You have to get there just about the right time or you will end up with cold or dried up food. Now you have to pay extra for cranberry juice. We don't eat there much anymore Chip N Ale offers great food always hot and the servers are... More

We ate at the Willows Buffet and the food is just awful. So much of it was dried up. they need to take lessons from out of State casinos for food.

I go to the Riverwind Casino once a month. I used to like the buffet, but management has contracted it out of someone else, and it is terrible. They now charge 2.00 for milk, orange juice, and coffee. They have eliminated the Breakfast buffet, except for Wednesday. I am surprised they don't have a pay toilet! That is next? Also,... More

Let's begin with the positive, the cashier and waitress were both very friendly and did a great job. Unfortunately that concludes the positives. I can't believe how bad the food was, it was horrible! The hot food was cold, cold food was really hot, some food was not cooked at all, other food looked to be several days old at... More
