The Peppermill buffet

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by debbyl on September 10, 2002

My husband is not a lover of buffets, but he thought this one was great. The food is of a higher quality and is very abundant. They even include steak and hand-dipped ice cream. The desserts are actually good and fresh as is the rest of the food. They offer many choices and the hot foods were hot, and the cold foods were cold. All the food was very good; the service was very good but the ambiance is what sold us on this buffet.

The setting is a rain forest and we were surprised by a rain shower and thunderstorm during our meal. The first time it happens it is a shock. After that you look forward to it happening. The lights dim and they actually have what looks like lightning. Also during the lightning period comes thunder and then the rain. It is very realistic except for the fact that you don't get wet (only a few, light, stray sprinkles). They even have trees that blow in the wind.

The price was a little higher than most buffets, but we felt it was worth it. I would go back to Reno just to experience this buffet again.
