i had a free coupon in the mail although i quit playing at riverwind about a year ago so i went out there just to eat. the price of 20 dollars on a thursday is insane for a buffet. On the plus side they have a pasta station where a young man named Devin did a good job of cooking... More

Not a very good selection for the money and the food quality was not up to par. The prime rib was way over done. The salad bar was a joke I can make a better salad at home. Unless you are getting it free for your points save your money go somewhere else.

They have taken crab legs off the menu completely. All of the shrimp is fried except the peel and eat shrimp. It is not worth the price and the food isn't great. Won't be coming back.

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.
