Nice selection, and food has been sitting there for awhile,by the time you get your food and get back to table or booth your food is cold .. On the weekend line is endless trying to get a seat . Service on refills is not great.

We're been there twice this month, once for Easter which was really great. The assortment of choices was excellent. The roast beef and leg of lamb were delicious. Lots of seafood including shrimp and crab legs. Desserts were very nice and the staff were very helpful. The second time was on a Wednesday and while we had many choices, they... More

The buffet at Dover Downs is remarkable only for its location. The food is like being back in college. On Prime Rib night, the meat was like shoe leather. Horrible. Tried one slice of the eggplant parmigiana. It was cold, and soggy. Try another place.

This buffet is one of the best I have been to ... wonderful variety of delicious food. They even offer sugar free desserts. If you can, go during horse racing season ... great way to watch the races, while eating a good meal. Wait staff is excellent, friendly and very attentive!

This buffet advertises Monday nights as Prime Rib night, but the meat was tough and overcooked. The other meats were scanty or had an additional charge attached. I did add on Shrimp cocktail one visit and they were fantastic!

The Buffet is ok , it always seem to have the same thing and not really worth the money. Harrington's Buffett is better then this one.

Sunday Brunch is a must if you are in hotel. If you go late it will bleed into lunch being served simultaneously. Early seating for brunch is usually breakfast items early. Friday and Saturday Night we usually meet friends for dinner. Sunday Brunch is our goto buffet when friends and family come into town.

A good value. If it was supposed to be hot, it was hot. If it was supposed to be cold, it was cold. Something for everyone I'm sure.
