A lot of options for all, vegans and carnivores alike. Very good dishes and excellent selection. Rating this down because all the hot food we got was cold, but maybe it was because we got in there a bit later, possibly if you go earlier it will all be hot and wonderful.

Have been to this buffet many times while in Reno and it is one of the best of 3. My wife enjoyed the salad bar. I liked the many different ways they did shrimp. Service was good also and plates were cleared every time we got up to get more food or dessert.

Always a local favorite. High quality and comfortable surroundings. Roast Beef was very good but not prime rib, sea food bar was good, as was many of the entry. I only fail to appreciate that while they try to get Chinese cooks from local establishments, once they get to a Casino, they become buffet cooks ... which isn't the same.

Delicious food and a lot of variety. Prime rib outstanding. Asian food was so fresh. Salad bar with all the wonderful toppings. The BEST desserts ever; save room for that.

Typical price for a buffet back home was unexpected. The food was awesome! Great selection of food for just about any desire. Our waiter was awesome as well. He came around every few minutes to monitor our drinks to make sure we never ran out. Be sure to get a Passport Rewards card from Peppermill before you start gambling because you can use your rewards to lower the price of your dining experience.
