I was quite disappointed. There was a decent selection but the fish I chose wasn't hot enough and made me nervous to eat. The shrimp cocktail was also not a comfortable temperature, it was lukewarm. The raspberry iced tea tasted like pure sugar, much sweeter than I've ever had. I did have the crab legs and they were very good... More

Even the most restricted diets will have an opportunity to find foods to serve their dietary needs. We went on a buy one dinner get one free day! We had four in our party> Three adults and one child. They did not grant our child a free meal. Makes no sense.

We had dinner here on a Friday evening. There is a large selection but nothing that really stands out as being really good. Very lackluster overall. We stayed at the casino hotel for 3 nights but only ate here the first day because it was not that great. OK for a quick meal but go elsewhere if you are looking... More

I will give it five stars because you are captive and would eat whatever they gave you but they actually put out a good spread. The service was great this night and the food quality is high. I have seen bigger selections on buffets so you may be limited in finding what you like but at least what they have... More

We visited the casino a couple times before this recent visit and ate at Thunder Mountain on those occasions, as well. This time it seemed to us that the quality and selection of food was better than on previous visits. Steak, several kinds of chicken, roast beef, seafood and turkey were available and were all good. Side dishes were plentiful... More

We had dinner here. Typical open buffet. Lots of options for every taste. Lots of meat choices. And enough vegetarian choices too. The resort offers multiple dinner options but I would gladly recommend this one

The absolute worst buffet I've ever eaten at!!! I ate there on 11/12/16. The food was disgusting. My entire family got sick. The foods are not cooked properly and kept at the proper temperature. It is a cesspool for food borne illness. I threw up several times and had the runs within 10 minutes of eating. It was just horrible.... More

While visiting the casino, we had a late lunch at the Thunder Mountain Buffet. This is an excellent buffet. The selections are amazing. We did not know where to start. To name a few; the shrimp are peeled with the tails on. While they are not huge, they are reasonably sized and cooked and chilled perfectly. The Prime Rib was... More

Some days I wish I could eat more, and other days I leave still hungry. There is always a good variety, but it's always pretty much the same set items. I do like that they'll grill your carved beef (sirloin or prime rib) if you ask (when they have it).
