This place is gross. Found a pretty good parking spot, but then we had to walk forever down a dirty hallway just to find the boats. Walking onto the boats, we were greeted with overwhelming smoke (coming from two smokers) on top of some sort of air freshener that almost made me sick. They make you think it's a nice... More

What a dump! Dark, dreary and dirty all in one! Staff is more interested in standing around talking to each other than the guests! Stay away!

When I initially started going to riverboats instead of Vegas to gamble back in the mid to late 90's, my 3 favorite riverboats were the Majestic Star, the Trump (now Majestic II) and the Empress (now Horseshoe). The Majestic was always bright and exciting. A Friday or Saturday night at the Majestic Star was well worth looking forward to, win... More

Was a downer, two old boats. Looks cramped. Tables had average minimums for the area, no discounted minimums for the shabby area/ location.

If it was not for the good gaming I would not go at all. It is the shabbiest nastiest casino in the area. The buffet is also the worst. On the other hand the gaming is pretty decent, they a lot of cash give-a-ways. There is always something going on. So if you are looking for good gaming not ambience... More

I went to the Majestic Star buffet for Seafood Night on a Friday night. The place was busy but not extremely crowded, but the servers didn't seem to care much about doing their jobs. The buffet itself is small and overpriced. There was always a long wait for crab and even then you only got two clusters. They would take... More

This place has gone down hill since when it first opened. Unless you really have a gambling habit, pass on this one.

If you like casinos, this venue has 2 casinos to choose from. Some people swear by Majestic Star while others prefer Majestic Star II. I am not a big gambler but I've had fun at both. If you try the restaurant or buffet you are looking out over Lake Michigan's southern tip and its industrial core. The food at the... More
