Wow, what a disappointment! I have never eaten in a worse casino buffet. Food is utter garbage. (i.e.) mushy veggies, cold fries, instant mashed potatoes, ham was served in nickel size pieces, tough and tasteless chicken, canned gravy, etc, etc. Service is almost as bad...More

Good selection of American/Canadian food and Asian good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Always hot and fresh. Dessert selection could be better to get 5 stars. There is a great private room behind the food stations for business meetings that includes the food.

This is where you go to have the dream buffet. Food so wonderfully prepared for you to consume. After a hard day gambling at River Rock, you need to experience the delicious food at The Buffet.

We had breakfast at this buffet restaurant. It was what you would expect at a buffet place. The price wasn’t too bad for $20 CDN per adult. The waffles were delicious with fresh whipped cream and the other items were mediocre.

For a buffet, it is not bad. Has some variety, but the food is just good. Not many options. But the restaurant is clean and inviting.
