Amazing…absolutely the best. I missed this place so much. I’m very happy it’s back.

I was so full, I couldn’t eat another bite.

For $17.99 it’s the best deal out there.

Front of house was awful. Everybody kept us waiting and didn’t even acknowledge us or tell us why we were waiting when we had reserved a table. I asked several
Times but still don’t know why. Nobody had a clue what was going on. That I can forgive as it’s first day back and new systems. That is totally understandable. All it would have taken was for someone to treat us with a modicum of respect and just talk to us

We sincerely apologize for the poor experience as a result of some last minute rule changes that created a perfect storm. As you know this is not our usual Standard of service. I am happy to report that the AHS guidelines have now been updated, returning us to Normal buffet Style Service that we all are used to and our Customers love.

We ended up walking out since we did not even have a server come up to the table 30-40 min after being seated.
They continued to walk by us, even when we would call them they continued walking.
It was a sit down- order to the table buffet.
It seems like the wait to eat was extremely long and it was best to leave before we were stuck paying $30 per person for one plate of food every 2 hours.
Used to love the buffet, I understand they are trying to comply with AHS rules but normal table service shouldn't have been that difficult.
I will not be returning until the buffet is back.

The food was great as always. The servers were polite and doing the best they could as they were very understaffed. This was due in large part to circumstances that were imposed on them on short notice by AHS, as you are no longer allowed to go up to the buffet. You now have to order at the table and have it brought to you. Because of this my meal took just under 3 hours to complete.

Not a buffet at the moment. You have to tel the server what you want and they get it for you. Extremely long wait times for anything, over 30
Minutes before we even had a drink or salad. I can’t blame it on the staff, it’s due to the government regulations, and lack of staff. However saying that, if this is the result it should just stay closed until those situations are rectified. The food is tasty as always, but don’t expect it to be hot when you get it. You can’t choose how you want things, you get what they give you.
To me that defeats the purpose of a “buffet”
Not even remotely worth the high price.
To give a short example, we were first in the door to be seated. We were at the table over 2 hours, all we got was 1 salad/soup. 1 plate of food, and 1 piece of pie. It was the most terrible 2 hours of my life.
Will not even think about going back until it is back to normal.

The best prime rib in Calgary. The best prices in Calgary and the quality of the food is outstanding. The deserts are to die for and the service impeccable. No waiting for free refills. By far my favorite place to spend a great evening.
The Covid restrictions were followed by the casino to perfection. Sanitized, distanced respected and the buffet was served to the customer contrary to self serve.
All and all a great experience.

Friday Dec 4 at 11am

Maria who was dressed in black (grey eagle employed), decided to publicly shame a patron who was in the que for buffet service (and was social distancing) by bringing to the attention of everyone in the restaurant that the gentleman (that had explained to her earlier that he has a medical exemption from wearing a mask) was refusing to wear a mask and that she couldn’t do anything about it. She yelled this out 3 times so that everyone in the restaurant would look and stare at him. Very unprofessional!!!Maria has no class and obviously zero people skills. She decided to shame a patron who has disabilities. Shame on you Maria!!!Shame you!!

This really spoiled the meal and experience we had that day.
We have attended the buffet a week prior with out any incident and had a wonderful respectful meal and encounter with the staff.

The difference on Friday Dec 4 , was Maria was out to set a example of her opinion superseded a person with disabilities

Thoroughly enjoyed the buffet! All COVID protocols were in place! Since we planned on spending time in the casino after dinner, we were very disappointed that those same protocols were NOT observed in the casino! There were many customers not wearing masks or wearing them improperly so since no one was monitoring this, we chose to leave as we felt very uncomfortable!

The food as a whole was sub par at best. The snow crab was dripping water and overcooked and the crab and lobster claws were tasteless. The only good things were the roasr beef and the desert.

The worst buffet experience I had in 30 years. Their Thursday Seafood buffet is decent, for this reason, I've decided to try their Asian buffet... but I was very disappointed. Not much selection, the sashimi was almost near stale, and the hot food was tasteless with a horrible texture not near how they are supposed to be. The Asian buffet is not worth the price I've paid.. actually, they should not even offer this horrible buffet even for $5 per person... and I'd still would not ever come back to the Asian buffet!!!

We went for the seafood buffet. The lobster claws were horribly over cooked to the point of being rubbery, shrivelled up and stuck to the shell. The “hot butter” was movie butter oil. Also, the scallops are served raw. The beef was amazing though. Stick to what you know Alberta, beef instead of seafood. Disappointed in the seafood.

Disappointed with the food choices (for a seafood buffet) there's not enough seafood choices to choose from. You have the claw, baked mussles and the small clams in the main buffet. I don't even remember if there's a fish or squid being served or shrimp on the main dish. Bonus maybe for a seafood buffet, is the roasted beef, chicken, noodles, baked potato......other dishes outweighed the seafood in itself. I'm hoping more seafood dishes to choose from on a seafood buffet!

Hi GenKir, Sorry you weren't satisfied with our seafood selection. We had : Mussels, Crab legs, Crab Claws, Lobster Claws, Scallops, Peel 'n ' eat Shrimp, Shrimp and Crab salad, Shrimp Fried Rice, salt and Pepper Squid, Alaska pollock fries, Tilapia in Lime Sauce, and canapes of assorted fish/seafood types. we add of course some non Seafood dishes as some groups will have patrons who need them. What else would you like us to consider offering? here's my email cmilliken-smith@greyeaglecasino.ca
