My best friend and I visited Atmore for the Josh Turner concert at Wind Creek's outdoor amphitheater July 19th. I believe the website says that amphitheater holds 2,500 people, which looked about right. Seating was metal folding chairs, which was fine with me for the 2 hrs I was there but might not be ok for some people. (after all, it is outdoors.) I was impressed with the stage setup, and the concert was fabulous! Wind Creek staff I encountered were all friendly and helpful. For an outdoor amphitheater, I assumed the sound would not be that great, but it was just as good as if it had been inside (probably better actually, because I don't like to have to scream at the person beside me for them to hear).
We also visited the casino. We ate at Grill Café for lunch and Taste Buffet for dinner. I can't comment too much on Grill Café because all we ate were salads. The salads were good, but service could have been better. We waited almost 30 minutes from the time we ordered our salads until we got them, and the point of us ordering salads was because we were in a hurry. Also, the waitress let our water glasses get empty twice and we had to wait on her to happen to come back by for a refill. Taste Buffet was great! There was a nice selection of food- Cajun, southern cuisine, Asian, carved meat, and dessert. Dinner cost was over $50.00 for two of us, which I felt was a little high.... but it's a casino so I guess it's to be expected.
I'm not really a gambler so my review of the gaming floor won't be worth much to those who are going for the gaming. There are a TON of machines, and I wanted to play a few games just for the heck of it. For two first time gamers, we had a very hard time figuring out how to play the games. Also, the screen would advertise it as a penny equals one play, then we would put $5 in and only get 2 plays.... but again, I didn't know what I was doing! haha.... the gaming floor was also VERY smoky, and I don't care for heavy cigarette smoke. It would be nice if they had a non-smoking area.
Overall, we enjoyed our visit to the casino. The grounds outside are beautiful, and I would loved to have visited the spa! It looked very nice. I would definitely return.
