Butterfields Buffet at Choctaw Casino Hours & Price 2023

As one of the largest casinos in the United States, with over 7,000 slots and 100 table games, the Choctaw Casino in Durant, Oklahoma sees thousands of visitors each day. And a good number of those gamblers scratch their hunger itch at the very popular Butterfields Buffet.

Located in the Grand Casino (Choctaw Durant has three different casino wings), Butterfields is just steps away from the bustling energy of casino floor. It has a contemporary décor with lots of red, high ceilings, and decorative lights. It’s not the largest buffet you’ll every see, but it is reasonably-priced.

Butterfields is the name of the popular buffet at the Choctaw Casino & Resort in Durank, OK.

Butterfields Buffet Choctaw

Stations here include a carving station, Southern, Italian, and Asian, in addition to the separate salad bar and dessert island.

Lines can get long here, especially on weekend nights during Butterfields’ very popular seafood buffet. You’ll pay first, then be seated, and this is one of those buffets where a waitperson will take your drink order, rather than you going up to a self-service drink stand.

Selections at the various stations range from your typical salad bar to brick-oven pizza to catfish, Tex-Mex, a Mongolian type grill, Pho station, a huge variety of sweets, and nearly everything in between. It is not an upscale dining experience by any means, but it does offer a wide variety of options, at an affordable price.

Butterfields Buffet Menu Items

We’re just covering dinner, as your breakfast and brunch items here are your typical casino buffet staples: egg dishes, bacon, sausage, pastries, pancakes, fruits, and the like.

Some dinner menu selections are below. As with most casino buffets, items are subject to change, but here’s a small sampling of what you are likely to find at Butterfields.

Seafood station:

This weekend night buffet is the highlight for many. They advertise “seasonal seafood” and often, even recently, this included lobster.

An October 2022 Google review from a Choctaw guest said the lobster wasn’t available during their visit. I followed up with the Choctaw and they’ve informed me they do not have lobster, nor crab legs as of this Fall 2022 update. I don’t know if it is a supply issue or not, however if the lobster option is important to you, you may want to call Butterfields ahead of time at (888) 652-4628. The same goes for the steamed crab legs.

The beautiful Choctaw Casino & Resort has 16 restaurants.

At the Asian station, you’ll find a Pho station, fried rice, orange chicken, spring rolls, wantons, noodles and green beans. A small Italian area had brick oven pizza, and some bread and pasta dishes, including spaghetti.

Southern Station

The Southern station had corn fritters, BBQ pulled pork, okra, gumbo, ribs and baked beans and macaroni and cheese. The far left side of the buffet is home to the carving station, with prime rib. Other options at Butterfields include mashed potatoes and gravy, chicken fried steak, pork chops, corn fritters and mixed vegetables. Fried chicken gets good marks here.

Salad bar: In addition to the standard salad bar options and toppings, you’ll find pre-made salads like potato salad, macaroni salad and the like, along with fruits and cottage cheese.

The dessert area is in a separate island station. Here you’ll find a variety of cakes, and pies including German Chocolate cake, coconut cream pie, cupcakes, cheesecake, pineapple upside down cake, cobbler (apple and peach), bread pudding, macaroons, and of course, ice cream.
