Seneca Niagara Casino unveils new-look Thunder Falls Buffet

Seneca Niagara Casino unveils new-look Thunder Falls Buffet


Niagara Gazette — As for the rest of the food, McHale said the new buffet is "the best Christmas present a chef can ask for."

His new playground allows his staff to offer new courses the previous buffet only dreamed of creating regularly. Of course, the buffet also accommodates food requests from patrons, just like it did before.

But the prepared food options are more numerous than ever before, McHale said.

"This will allow us to attend to individual tastes," he said. "Whether you have vegan needs, vegetarian, allergy or gluten free, we have lots, and I mean lots, of options. You can even eat healthy at the buffet, you just need to exercise a bit of self control."

One of the most notable features of the redesign is the open area connecting the dining area with the gaming floor. Seneca Niagara and Buffalo Creek General Manager Chuck Kilroy said the new layout will allow the buffet to serve 80 guests every 15 minutes during peak hours. Seating capacity at the buffet also increased to 500, up from 420 in the old layout, and includes booths, tables and a chef's table, all within the immediate vicinity of much of the food.

Building the new buffet required it to be closed since October and employed more than 20 local contractors and subcontractors to complete the redesign. In all, 200 workers finished the work on time, Kilroy said.

Patrons using a Seneca Niagara Player's Club card can enjoy lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day for $15. Dinner runs from 4 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Friday and 4 to 11 p.m. Saturday. The normal dinner price is $20, while a special menu will be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday at $24 per person. Guests not using a Player's Club card – free from the casino – will pay $2 extra per admission.
