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

I agree with other reviewers that the casino and hotel could use an update. I want to be clear that I am pretty picky with my food. We stopped by the buffet for breakfast, first there were many choices, the biscuits and gravy are pretty good, I like mine HOTTER but I assume its a safe temp. At the far... More

Stopped at the Majestic Star II casino boat in Gary yesterday and it will be the last time that I step on that boat. I have visited many casinos in many states, and I can say without any doubt that this casino is the dirtiest environment that I have ever experienced in a casino. The carpets were so dirty that...

Ever since Don Barden the owner passed it seems like no one really cares, and the quality of everything is in decline from gambling, food, cleanliness, security etc.
