Unlimited Fresh Maine Lobster and Prime Rib without sacrificing price?
That’s unheard of on Oahu (or at any other buffet I’ve been to before anywhere).
So imagine my surprise when I found exactly this at Arizona for under $30 too.
I found out about the Red Rock Buffet inside the Fort McDowell Casino from my family
as this is a spot they come often for several years.
The Fresh Maine Lobster & Prime Rib Dinner Buffet takes place every Thursday & Friday.
By signing up for a free Player's Card, you can save a few dollars on your meal-- making the feast only $26.95 for adults (kids under 5 years old eat free).
This includes soft-drinks while wines are $3 per glass.
Just look at that JUICY lobster meat.
So fresh you can taste the sweetness!
I really enjoyed this visit so much that the week immediately after,
returned to try our their
Crab Leg Wednesday buffet to do a comparison.
[TIP]- While the buffet starts dinner service at 3 PM, the best time to go seems to be right before dinner rush as they replenish and bring out the Crab Legs very frequently. We found the first initial Crab Leg batch were a bit over-frozen and mushy but later batches were much improved. Though from my family's past visits, previous Crab Leg dinners they've had here (including one last month) was always wonderful (so they were slightly disappointed this visit) but this seems like a rare occurrence.
I revisited for Crab Leg night for my birthday in November
and quality was very good, consistent and better than the initial visit.
They even gave me a free mini birthday cake (pictured above). Although not fancy, it was a very thoughtful touch. Service was excellent too. One of the female staff was so so kind to wipe the baby chair for my niece and the guy server we had was super nice and attentive.
Stuffing your face for under $23 with unlimited Crab Legs, that is still an incredible deal! The best thing (for now) is that there is no time limit, so you can hit up the Casino in-between and come back for dessert later (assuming someone in your party stays inside).
Even if you happen to lose money in the Casino, you'll still feel like you came out
a winner after visiting the buffet.
I really loved their Beef Bourguignon that I made sure to eat it again on the second visit.
The meat was super fork tender with a delicious gravy.
I found that aside from the main items Lobster with Prime Rib VS. Crab Legs with Top Round,
the other entrees and sides to choose from seems almost the same for both Lobster or Crab night.
What I really liked about the Red Rock Buffet is that the seafood & meat station is manned by the staff
and replenished very quickly (meaning the food is fresh and not sitting for long).
Bread Pudding, Brownie, and Fruit Cobbler.
Other Desserts (cakes, pies, tapioca, etc.).
There's also a self-service soft serve station.
While the food selection at this buffet has less variety and initially looks smaller than say a Las Vegas Buffet,
majority of the items were solidly good.
For the price, it's worth it just to visit for the unlimited Seafood & Meat station.
Service from all of their staff was also very friendly on both visits
(the manager made time to go around every table to say hello as well).
I've since visited Red Rock Buffet a handful of times for both Lobster & Snow Crab buffet nights.
Still a winner in my book (April 2018).
