Easily my favorite choice for a buffet in Reno. You must try the mushroom ravioli as it cannot be topped anywhere.Always fresh and a great variety to choose from

I paid $34 for my meal. Granted, my visit took place at noon, on Mother’s Day (May 14th, 2017), and I do not have a player’s card. I ate a lot of snow crab—so I suppose I got my money’s worth. But I didn’t visit this buffet with the intention of eating snow crab. As it turned out, the snow... More

I brought a group of friends from out of town to this buffet. I remembering it being better in the past. The crab legs were small and really hard to break open, even with a cracker. Nothing else stands out in my mind, which is not a good thing when you have so much to choose from. The desserts are... More

As a Premiere Club member I get a decent discount in the buffet, so I always take advantage of it and stop here for a meal.  I usually come in for breakfast, but there are a number of lunch/dinner items on the menu as well.  Something everyone must try is the ravioli, which is among the best I've ever had....

The buffet was quite good. There weren't so much choices for me to eat. I am vegetarian so i just ate salad and some fruits. Lucky it wasn't very expensive. We paid $12.99 per person for lunch. If you are vegetarian this place is not for you.

For $29 per person, I expected a bit more of a selection. This is just your average buffet. And food was not even hot

I gotta say the food was terrible. Wife loved the crab leggs and the shrimp pasta wasn't too bad, but every thing else sucked. It was over cooked, dry, or stale. Even the cheese cake was terrible. My stomach was turning and gargling for 24 hrs. Way over priced too. $58 for 2. OUCH!
