I stay overnight at the Borgata quite often,( Darn those slots!!) and I had been to the breakfast buffet a few months ago. That was good ---- nothing special ----all the same foods that I can get at The Metropolitan Café ( their decent priced breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant) for about the same price, $16. I guess the buffet is good for people who want to load their plate up. A few nights ago, I tried their dinner buffet ( $33 a person), and, although I wasn't expecting the quality of the food to be equal to that of a regular higher end restaurant ---- buffets never are--- I still was expecting it to be better than it was. I was surprised that it didn't even have the basic buffet carving stations --- no baked ham or turkey --- the only carving station I saw was prime rib, and it did not look very appealing. I opted for the strip steak, which was very fatty and had a lot of gristle. The spare ribs were all bone with just a hint of meat. No crab cakes or crab legs, although crab cakes at a buffet are mostly filler. ( The Metropolitan Café has a crab cake platter which has two decent crab cakes bursting with crabmeat ,and a side of mixed vegetables for only $24) The buffet had a so so pasta station --not even cheese ravioli, only beef--- not even lasagna. Nothing to write home about. If two people want to keep the price down, go to The Homestead in The Borgata, and share their very large crabmeat cocktail ( $21) and a 18 ounce filet mignon ($52). . It comes out to about the same price per person, but the quality of the food is so much better.
