Snoqualmie Casino Buffet and Restaurants Guide

Post last updated September 4, 2023

Located 26 miles east of Downtown Seattle is Snoqualmie Casino. Snoqualmie is the closest casino to Seattle and has fantastic restaurants serving a variety of cuisines and in my opinion, the best casino buffet in Washington State. I’ll take you through each of Snoqualmie’s restaurants and eateries with my recommendations and need-to-know things.

Washington State’s Best Buffet Choice: Falls Buffet

The Falls Buffet has fantastic options like prime rib

In my opinion, this is the best casino buffet in the State of Washington. Offering a weekday lunch, weekend brunch, and a daily dinner buffet, you won’t leave disappointed! Falls Buffet offers its guests a full-service carving station with prime rib, ham, and other meats from the rotisserie. There’s a huge salad bar and a made-to-order Mongolian Grill stir fry option as well. The Asian food station will typically serve fried rice, stir fry, spring rolls, and Asian-style prepared meats. The Italian food station has assorted pizzas, garlic bread, and pasta galore. You’ll find American foods and seafood in the middle of the row. Clams and mussels, green beans, mashed potatoes, corn, and other traditional dishes. 

Of course, we can’t forget the dessert bar. There’s a wide assortment of cakes by the slice, fruits, bread pudding, strawberry shortcake, and everyone’s favorite: the chocolate fountain.

If you’re coming for a weekend dinner, be sure to get there early or prepare for a decent wait in line. It gets very busy and since the food is so good, no one is leaving anytime soon. A huge part of what makes Falls Buffet great is that the food comes out fresh because of the high volume of people. On select evenings you can add Dungeness crab by the pound to your bill.


  • Lunch: Monday – Friday from 11:00 AM – 3:30 PM
  • Brunch: Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 AM – 3:30 PM
  • Prime Rib Dinner: Sunday – Thursday from 4:00 PM – 9:00 PM | Friday and Saturday from 4:00 PM – 10:00 PM


  • Weekday Lunch: Adults: $21.99 | Kids 5-10: $14.99 | Seniors 55+: $14.99
  • Weekend Brunch: Adults: $25.99 | Kids 5-10: $20.99 | Seniors 55+: $20.99
  • Daily Prime Rib Dinner: Adults: $31.99 | Kids 5-10: $25.99 | Seniors 55+: $26.99
  • Add Crab for Friday or Saturday Dinner: $35.00 per pound

Recommendations: Make sure you come early and hungry. The prime rib is fantastic. If you don’t like that it’s on the medium to medium rare side, they’ll throw your piece on the grill for you. The made-to-order stir fry is a must. For dessert, although the chocolate fountain is always a favorite, I have to recommend the strawberry shortcake.

Vista Prime Steaks & Seafood

Snoqualmie Casino Vista Restaurant
Vista restaurant has an excellent bananas foster for dessert

Vista is Snoqualmie Casino’s main fine dining restaurant. The scenic views are accompanied by live music and make this a great spot for a high-end meal. There’s a bar section right upon entering if you’re dining solo, and then a big dining space that wraps around showcasing the landscape.

The menu is fantastic at Vista. Small plates feature Dungeness crab cakes, wood-fired octopus, and scallops Rockefeller. If you’re dining with at least one other person the tableside order of the caesar salad is a must. If you’re in the mood for seafood, get the seafood tower as it features some of the Pacific Northwest’s best. Rounding off the menu is a focused selection of high-end steaks with the featured item being the wagyu reserve flight.

Vista has a full bar and over 100 different wines to choose from. Again, if you’re dining with at least one other person, I highly recommend the bananas foster dessert, which will be made tableside. Careful, as they light it on fire!

Recommendations: Dungeness Crab Cakes | Tiger Prawn Cocktail | Calamari | Caesar Salad | Crab Louie Salad | Seafood Tower | Lobster Mac and Cheese | Hokkaido Japan A5+ Wagyu | Kerwee Ranch Wagyu Kiwami | Wagyu Reserve Flight | Bananas Foster | 23 Layer Chocolate Cake

12 Moons | Asian – Sushi – Noodles

They have 15 different rolls to choose from, as well as having 4 choices of small maki (rolls) which is great for a quick bite. 12 Moons doesn’t have an extensive nigiri and sashimi menu, but there’s enough to get your raw fish fix. If you’re having a tough time making a decision, go with omakase (chef’s choice).

Beyond sushi, 12 Moons has galbi (Korean beef short ribs) by the pound, ramen, pho, fried rice, noodle dishes, donburi, and a variety of Asian small plates and side dishes.

Snoqualmie Cafe & Deli

When you think about a casino deli, it probably doesn’t excite you too much. Well, trust me the Snoqualmie Cafe & Deli is legit and high quality. They’re open 24/7 so you can grab a late-night bite, early-morning breakfast, or even something quick in between craps sessions! They have all your usual breakfast options like waffles, french toast, omelets, and country-fried steak. Appetizers that include wings, chicken strips, and fries. 23 different burgers and sandwich options that come with house-made coleslaw or french fries. Rounding out the menu is 7 different pizza choices.

Snoqualmie Casino Coffee Shop Drip

Drip is a cute little coffee bar at Snoqualmie Casino. Although the casino provides their patrons with free drip coffee, if you’re in the mood for a specialty coffee drink, you’re in luck. Drip has a variety of coffee and tea drinks, as well as pastries and baked goods. If you’re looking for something quick, Drip is your spot. On weekends, Drip often has live entertainment.
