What can I say about Rivers Casino? If you're gambler, you love it. If you're not, it's an eyesore. It's become "a city within a city" but natives are staying away from it in droves. It brings a bad element into town....fights, arrests, you name,...More

There is not a buffet at the Rivers Casino. There are some nice restaurants down the street - not buffets.
