We got there right when the buffet was opening. There was a wait to get a table since the line gets a bit stopped up since you pay before you get a table. There was a large assortment of choices for lunch. They were carving a corned beef for St. Patty's day and that was the shining star of the... More

This was not open during our stay so I cannot say anything good or bad. We used to love going to this buffet, but during our stay we were told by Security only 3 restaurants were open (House of Blues, Johnny Rocket, Earl of Sandwich) and the French Quarter was closed. Check before you book what's going to be open.

Had to wait on a semi-long line intially hoping to get lobsters because they run out quickly but will restock. The first time I went about 2 yrs ago, it was one price for lobster night, about 30.00, but didnt have crab legs. The second time we went, they didnt have lobsters since it was the week day, but had... More

Poor selection of food no seafood to speak of except for shrimp only turkey carving station nothing else dessert bar is okay and the staff waiting and cleaning the tables are good definitely not worth $20 a person we had a coupon for $18 off so at that Price it's not bad but definitely not worth the full price

Had to take the kids to buffet at least once on our trip to AC. We were staying at Trump and didn't want to drive over to Borgata or Harrahs, so we tried French Quarter. We have been here years ago and it was okay. Came in on a weeknight and it was busy - cost $20 for adults and... More

Had dinner with a group of friends at French Quarter. It lacked in choice selections but the staff was friendly and warm...from the lady at the register to our wonderful waitress Debbie.

We went on. Friday night and had crab legs and a choice of a glass of wine or beer...very good value! I used a voucher but it would have cost $34.99 otherwise...between a glass of wine and a few crab legs...it paid for itself. Area was clean, service was great and food was good. If you have been to the... More
