Went for lunch yesterday with my daughter. When we were up to the cashier she took my daughters player card but not mine, and rang us up, when I asked her if I received the senior discount she looked a little sheepish. Odd that she would take my daughters card when I was straight in front of her holding my... More

We were staying overnight at the River Rock Hotel and decided to take in the buffet which we normally don't. The food quality was average, nothing outstanding. The service was decent but every time the sushi tray came out it was gone in two minutes and it seemed to take about 10 minutes before another tray appeared. Next time I... More

This worth a trip to try the food but beware the crowds. Go early and just be prepared for people everywhere. Food gets replaced fairly often but it goes fast.

I experienced both breakfast and dinner: the breakfast offers a wide selection among traditional and less traditional food and the dinner offers both traditional food and during my stay Korean food.

We enjoyed going to a buffet after a long day of skiing. You didn't have to think of what to eat and the choices available are diverse enough to fill your plate with things that you like. I especially enjoyed the Shanghai soup noodles....Ate three bowls of it! Don't get me wrong, I still think the buffets in Las Vegas... More

We waited in line for far too long for this but felt it was our best option after just checking in on a Saturday evening. The food wasn't the best and the service wasn't great either. We got food in our belly which was what we needed. Just hoped for better!
