“Great breakfast buffet.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We frequently visit the casino's breakfast buffet on Saturday mornings despite the many other options available nearby. For $10/person + tip (which includes drinks), this simply can't be beat. The food is great, and you can even get fresh eggs and omelets made for you. The offering is the typical breakfast buffet offerings, including scrambled eggs, waffles, pecan-crusted french toast, egg crepes with fruit toppings, biscuits and gravy, ham, sausage, bacon, and probably several more items that I'm missing. There's also a wide variety of pastries available, which appear to be exactly the same pastries sold individually in the cafe downstairs.

The service is decent, but your drinks will always stay full, and the atmosphere is about what you'd expect for a casino - somewhat loud and noisy, occasionally smokey, but altogether not bad. If you need to try a new breakfast spot, this is it.

Other offerings are available at lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, but we do not frequent them as often - the lunch is a good value but the food is not as good, and the dinner is expensive but the food is generally very good with a wide variety of desserts.

“One Of The Best On The Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Unfortunately the Dungenous crabs are gone and they jacked the price up to about $30 each. So much for cheap casino buffets running local restaurants out of business ! This is a large buffet with tons of choices. You can't find a better buffet on the coast and luckily it is the second closest casino to New Orleans. Lines are usually long on weekends so get there early to avoid a long wait. Food quality and food choice is excellent so it's worth the occasional splurge.

“One of the better casino buffets”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Wide selection of foods always done well and a cut above most of the Coast casinos-even those that are larger

“Great Casino Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is one of the best buffets on the Coast. The selection of food and especially the quality of the food is excellent. We especially noticed the professionalism of the staff, servers and chefs. Best casino buffet. Worth it.

“Tuesday Night Oyster Extravaganza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

While many area casinos feature crab legs on their buffet, the Epic buffet in the Hollywood Casino Resort features different menus...daily like the Oyster Extravaganza on Tuesdays. For a competitive price for a casino buffet, patrons can feast upon an unlimited supply of oysters on the half shell, grilled, fried and more along with fried shrimp, a well-stocked salad bar and dessert station. On hand are good old standbys like BBQ chicken and pizza for non-oyster lovers.
