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).

Me and two friends went here after setting up for a shoe I'm neighboring Little Valley. I am not big on Casino gambling but hey, after hauling boxes, it's a good way to relax. We decided on the buffet for Friday night dinner. The selection was vast. Everything from Prime Rib to fish and salads galore. The seafood was fresh... More

When visiting the casino, my husband and I always eat dinner at the Thunder Mountain Buffet. There is something there for everyone. The prime rib is amazing (get it slightly grilled for an additional taste). The pizza is made in their own pizza oven and is one of the best that I have ever had. Chinese, American, chicken, fish, shrimp,... More

Stopped at the casino on our way to our next overnight. Since it was our first visit we were able to sign up for rewards card, we got money off the buffet. There was so many choices to pick from! All of the food is had was excellent! The deserts were just as good. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Please note that starting out, I am not a big fan of buffets for dinner....that being said, the buffet had plenty of variety, but the quality was OK; not great.

Consistent through the years, they offer many choices. I always enjoy the chicken and meatloaf is above avg. Shrimp is a lot of work but worthwhile. Husband always enjoyed their dessert array. Prime rib is a mainstay to please any palate along with turkey or ham, whichever they choose on a particular day. Wednesday is great for seniors too as... More
