Festival Buffet is located inside Foxwoods Casino. Compared to the amazing Mohegan Sun buffet, Festival's buffet was a major disappointment. Mike and I mistakenly chose the Festival Buffet at Foxwoods for dinner one night.
I have been to more good buffets than bad, and considering Foxwoods is one of the biggest casinos in the world, I thought the food would be top notch. Boy, was I wrong. Skip Foxwoods and head over to the Mohegan Sun!
The food at this buffet just wasn't good. Everything I tried was below average. I felt that the food quality was lower than an Old Country Buffet. The funny thing is that this buffet seemed to have less options than others I have visited so I can't even call it a quantity over quality type situation. Foxwoods doesn't have either of these aspects going for it. I expected a lot more out of $20 per person price tag!
Breakfast is $10.99 and runs from 7:45 am until 11:00am
Lunch is $17.99 and runs from 11:00am until 5:00pm
Dinner is $19.99 and runs Mon-Fri from 5:00pm until 10:00pm (an enhanced dinner menu featuring snow crab clusters is available Friday and Saturday nights from 5:00pm until 11:00pm
Waitresses were rude and just sort of sat in the back glaring at you. I felt uncomfortable eating like someone was watching me!
I hated the dining area of this buffet because the seating area was just so cramped together. In addition, there was a funny smell that made us quickly lose our appetite.
If you are looking for a good buffet, skip Foxwood's Festival Buffet and head straight over to the Mohegan Sun. Itt's just a 10 minute drive. And, for your time you will enjoy better food, a more diverse range of options, a cleaner setting, and a dining room that is more spaced out and elegant.
