We went there for their Sunday brunch experience. Decor is pleasant, but nothing special. You will not have to sit too close to other diners, which is nice. If you get there a little before 11:30, you will have to line up. We had to wait for a while to be seated, but once we were seated, everything was fine.... More

We took our sister to have seafood on Friday night at the River Cree Kitchen. We've been going there for a while and decided to take her because she loves crab. On this particular day the crab was in pieces. We asked the waiter what was going on with the crab, he replied that they got the wrong order from... More

Offers your usual selections for buffet and menu. Food is okay but nothing great. An option if you are staying at the hotel.

Kitchen Buffet & Bistro - Alberta Meat Night - There was a large number of items to select from and if one went away hungry, it would be their own fault. There was a selection of different fish and clams available. The "turf" meats included chicken, pork and beef. I did not try the chicken but the rest of the... More

The Kitchen Buffet & Bistro restaurant at the Marriott River Cree Resort was awesome! Enjoyed the vast choices at the buffet. Nightly features such as prime rib, all you can eat crab , surf & turf night or Sunday brunch. You can also choose to order off the menu or room service. Delicious tasty food.

The food was disgusting. There was hardly anything edible. The potato salad went bad and they still served it. I will never go to this place ever again. The service was bad and everything there was over priced. Definitely a mistake to go there

Was a very good Buffett. Went on Sunday evening for dinner. Special was lamb chops. Also loved the smoked fish and teriyaki pork ribs.

Visited as part of a family birthday celebration on Friday night which happened to be crab night. There was an ample supply of crab legs, however, if you were not a crab lover, there was not much else in the way of choice for entrees. There was some chicken (mainly dark meat and or backs), deep fried basa fish and... More
