The Lodge Casino's Seasons Buffet, sort of, has a steak-house feeling to it; it's more intimate than the typical buffet.  The lighting is as subdued as one can find in a buffet room.  One gets a pleasant, relaxed vibe from Seasons Buffet.   Kudos to the designers; it's one of the best rooms anywhere.

This was my first trip to the The Lodge Casino, which seems to be a real class act, from the classy buffet and The White Buffalo steak-house to the red leather chairs in the waiting areas, and the hewn-timber construction.
