My wife and I had lunch at the buffet in this establishment. The food is good if one choses wisely to avoid the may starch dishes. The price is unbelievable low (We think of Las Vegas buffets).

The casino is too small. It's beautiful scenery but that's about it. We went into one of restaurants in there service was so slow and when we told the hostess she was lie "oh sorry" but didn't even try to get a waitress or manager or anything. The staff was so blatantly ignoring the patrons like they know there are... More

We decided to splurge for Valentine's Day so I made reservations at Wendell's. The service was uneven - out waiter knew enough about wines to bring our glasses of red to breathe a while before the entrees arrived and paced delivery of appetizers and main course perfectly. However, it took a while to correct one of the drink orders and... More

We enjoyed the golf course even though it has quite narrow fairways and a couple of trees stuck out in the middle of the fairway. We played from the Blue Tees which meant that all of the Par 3's were 200+ yards. We probably should have moved up a tee box (had we known that). The greens and fairways were... More

Friendly service, clean, large selection of food items. Not what we where expecting from a casino buffet, but we are not experienced casino buffet folks. It was cheap quality food that was just ok. It was busy and well staffed but we expected more. The biggest disappointment was the desserts which where horrible. The salad bar was good, the Italian... More

Very bad experience dealing with the staff here. Everybody seems to be very aloof and in their own little world. The resort is very nice and the food is decent.

I mistakenly thought that there was a different restaurant located at this venue so we got there already thinking we were going to a place called Smokey B's but no that restaurant is located at a different casino called Casino Apache not the Inn of the Mountain Gods. I thought there was only one location. Nope, so we settled for... More

We have been coming here off and on for decades but this is the last time we will spend the money for the Christmas Day buffett and here's why. Yes it is a nice resort with beautiful decor and the view from Wendells is splendid. We planned ahead and had 2:30 reservations arriving early to relax. We sat at the... More

Ate at 5 eating places in the casino. All were excellent food and service. For dinner we had wine/beer, pupus, and watched the sun set on the mountains behind the lake.
