Very poor, slow service. Food was cold, complained several times about slow service and had very negative response and disregard.

Great food at a great price. I got the stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer and it was excellent. When my main dish came out (Tuscany garlic chicken) I was just as impressed. I will be coming back here on my next Wendover trip.

Had the Sunday Buffet and WOW we were all impressed. Fresh food, good food, omelette station and so many options for our party of four with very different tastes.

Food was good, service was good. They have a menu for truckers, must show CDL, and you can't beat the price!

Not great for gambling, but good breakfast and fast drink service on the casino floor. Can't comment on the rooms here, but the restaurant is good.

Best value for quality and price in Wendover. They have re-decorated the restaurant. There is a buffet, maybe not all the time. Most order off the menu.

Made the mistake of stopping here while on a road trip. Prime rib looked like road kill that had been in the kitchen for months. Asked for pasta with no sauce and it took three tries to get that right Biscuit was so hard it could have broken a foot if it had fallen off the table. Never again

We went here for breakfast and they were closed for cleaning. Would have been nice to know before we trapesd through the casino and wasted a half hour of our time.
