After some hours of losing the family fortune, we had prearranged a lunch get-together with about 15 others. The Canopy Buffet has a nice atmosphere, perfectly lit in the dining area and more brightly lit over the food counters. There is more than enough seating....More

Our annual Easter celebration includes going out to a brunch buffet. But by the time we got around to making a reservation, all of our favorite places were already booked solid. A friend overheard our sobbing and suggested that we try the buffet at Rivers...More

Ate dinner here one evening with a friend. The buffet is $30.00 which is about $10.00 higher than it should be. That being said, the food was good and it was all served hot. Staff was very friendly and the restaurant was clean. I would...More

I couldn't believe the large selection of food. I love dessert and they had just about any type of dessert you could possibly want. Everything was very good. The employees were very nice. We got 25% off the price with our rewards card.

Standard buffet food at a very escalated price. They also do crab legs one night a week, on Tuesdays for $39.95. That is a $10 premium for some Snow crab. This casino will really be in trouble if the IL House passes the Senate bill...More

Canopy is a good Casino buffet. It's not amazing but it's good. The prime rib was excellent. It could have been a little bit less expensive. If you're super hungry and you've got plenty of money eat here and you will leave reasonably satisfied. Important:...More

Highly-recommend this UPSCALE adults-only buffet ! We typically avoid buffets due to food quality, food safety & to not be fed like cattle BUT the Canopy Buffet is a unique experience. Small portions of everything delicious is prepared in what feels like cooked-to-order. Great atmosphere...More
