Ancient military strategists deployed enormous food-stuffed monuments into enemy territory to lull opponents into a false sense of security with faux friendship and turkey-induced naps. Embark upon a historic tradition with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get two dinner buffets at the Grand View Buffet in Rivers Casino ($39.90 Value)
Diners at the Grand View Buffet at Rivers Casino indulge in a smorgasbord of all-you-can-eat foodstuffs. Five stations dish out ethnic cuisine with Italian, Mongolian, and ancient-theme-park-vendor influences. Stock up on pub favorites such as ribs and pizza, or top off chlorophyll stores with crisp salads. A selection of desserts cap the decadent evening as guests push the limits of their belt notches. Dinner buffets run Monday–Thursday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. On Sunday evenings, the soothing sounds of smooth jazz complements dining during the 6 p.m.–9 p.m. Jazz Feast.
After noshing on succulent bites, guests can step out onto the casino floor for a hand of blackjack, a spin of roulette, or a mesmerizing turn at a slot machine. Admirers of progress can journey across the street to the Carnegie Science Center, where they can explore the exhibits, including a life-size game of Mousetrap, and sharpen their appreciation for the wondrous mysteries of land, sea, and carefully timed laser shows.
Andrew's Steak & Seafood
By channeling the many famous Andrew's of Pittsburgh—Carnegie, Mellon, and Warhol, to name a few—the chefs of Andrew's Steak & Seafood add a touch of genius to every dish they craft. One of five restaurants located inside Rivers Casino, Andrew's has gleaned numerous OpenTable Diners' Choice Awards for its gourmet Steaks and Seafood selections, such as the signature 21-day-aged New York strip and the hollandaise-drenched oysters Rockefeller. The wine list has also attracted attention, earning Wine Enthusiast magazine's Award of Unique Distinction for its selection of 200+ varietals hailing from throughout the globe.
