Actually not bad but your basic Casino mediocracy food. But it's exactly what you expect. There's no live dealers everything is machines send it's just OK. It serves its purpose.

NY's Aqueduct and Yonkers casinos no longer have buffets, likely because they do not need to attract more customers to their crowded venues. So this is another reason to love little Monticello.

Our lunch buffet was good, were there on a Tuesday and got a senior discount. Waiter was very nice. Good variety of items to choose from. Wonderful dessert selection.

I got a free ticket to the buffet at the Monticello Casino. The first thing I noticed is that it was nothing like the buffets in AC. They did have shrimp- which was peel it yourself- and it was plentiful. There were about 5 entrees to choose from plus potatoes and veggies. There was a carving station with only one... More

Casino's are famous for their buffet food, Monticello Casino Raceway is the exception. the food is OK but nothing to write home about. Pricey , limited choices, salad bar is the best part of the spread. Tight seating, waitstaff friendly, place quite clean, shrimp fresh and large. Children not allowed.

This buffet is a bit pricey for what you get to eat. The food really has no flavor. Even the salad dressings are bland. I was not impressed and would not go back. It is not worth the cost.

I must say we really enjoyed this buffet. Fresh salads, included soft drinks and refills, and newly prepared tasty food along with a very nice little carving station and a variety of desserts. A very pleasant and drama-free meal for less than $16/head on weekdays. Also, the atmosphere is warm and friendly and far enough set back from the casino... More

The buffet food offers a good, healthy selection, and it's very tasty. The turkey is a meal we always look forward to. I love the vegetables, which are NOT overcooked. Nice salad bar offered too.

lots of good, hearty "comfort" food! Rudy cooks a roast beef like no other! The desserts offer selections for diabetics!

We went to this buffet on Father's Day around 11am. This was during their "brunch" serving. I was unimpressed with the variety and amount of food offered but the quality was pretty good. I can list literally everything that was offered. 3 different kinds of green salad along with accompanying salads (macaroni salad, etc.) Scrambled Eggs, Omelette station, bacon, waffles,... More
