I have never had a bad experience here. Sometimes there is a line and it might take a bit but service is friendly and they have a good menu and decent prices. Also have good specials.

A wide variety of dishes. Staff kept the food on the buffet refreshed. Our server was on the ball and kept our beverages full and our used plates removed.

This place is excellent if you hit it on the right night. If not, it's a bad experience. High turnover with employees so you never get guaranteed good service. On a good nite however, it's fabulous !

Terrific burgers & nachos. Open 24hrs. Also has pizza & breakfast sandwiches. When busy, they can take 1/2 hour for your order.

The bench seat was ripped and dirty. My friend wanted to order toast. Waitress was missing in action for over 20 minutes. We had to flag down the bus boy. Food was good and lots of variety for breakfast.

A nice little deli with reasonably priced food. The chicken wild rice soup is to die for. A busy little eating area off to the side from a noisy casino area.

Lots of entrees and sides to choose from unfortunately none of it was great. We found the food either bland, cold or old. Not worth the price you have to pay. Plus there were line-up all the time.

so to have food available 24/7 is a plus and something their counterpart (fon du luth) has failed to consider. Burgers, fries, onion rings, pizza, dogs, sammies, salads....who could ask for anything more in a 24 hour period? I have waited longer for my food in the McD's drive thru in a line of cars haha . .

Takes way too long to get your food and it's nothing special! Eat before you go to the hotel or order pizza to your room instead!!
