Foxwoods is getting lots of competition. There are a bunch of newer casinos opening up that are closer to the major metropolitan areas. Foxwoods needs to compete. To do so, they are renovating various things, from their poker room to the buffet. After some time, their new buffet finally opened and it is merely slightly better than it was before.
The biggest improvement is the environment. The space is bigger, brighter and more modern looking.
The food is mostly the same with a few new additions. There are some new desserts, but they aren’t spectacular. They have some raw seafood, but again, they aren’t spectacular. These include oysters, clams and some stone crab claws. You can taste that they were frozen and bagged a long time ago. None of these things are fresh. They have pizza now, which is kind of no brainer considering how easy it is to make. One of the good new additions is the addition of new meats to the chopping block. These items are usually fresher and tastier. They also added fish, which was pretty good.
Overall, the buffet is just okay. None of the food is gourmet. The price of dinner here is about thirty dollars, which is a lot considering the quality of the food. You should also keep in mind that most people who come here are comped their food. For the price of free, this place is fine. For thirty dollars, this place isn’t great.
