Paula Deen, outdid herself here. The food was amazing and just down home goodness. So much to choose from, the fried chicken, potatoes, pot roast,, exceptional! The desserts were so amazing, we wanted to " drink" the bourbon sause for the bread pudding, it was so good. Just imagine the food you can have from an amazing and well loved... More

Even so it's not Paula Deen anymore the Buffet provide more inadequate selections. The food is very good they have several different types of cuisines available. However I would go other than Friday and Saturday as I believe it is $35 roughly per person on those nights due to the seafood selection. But by all means if you love crab... More

It was amazing but it isn't there anymore, they do have another kind of buffet but I'm not sure what it is.

For those of you traveling to Horseshoe Southern Indiana Casino and expecting to dine at paula Deen's buffet, you will find that her line of restaurants were removed from the casinos when the controversy began over a year ago. I had always looked forward to dining at one of her buffets, but did not anticipate them being removed so soon... More

Seafood and Italian at one area and Asian with Mexican next. The meat station has ham,steak and turkey. I LOVE the mashed potatos. The... More

The buffet at Horseshoe Casino is now called THE SPREAD. The food is plentiful and for the most part pretty well done. You have multiple stations to choose from. You have Asian, Mexican, Italian,and then you have American comfort foods. This last section consists of fried chicken,mashed potato's to die for and much more. My husband loves the catfish and...

Loved the food. Everything was excellent. Really loved how Kevin went out of his way to make my pasta exactly how I wanted it. There is something for everyone. But $42.78 is a little much for a buffet for 2 people.

Now called The Spread. Went there for Sunday morning brunch. 2 people cost $43 and change. The only thing I liked was the biscuit. Bacon was a big greasy blob. Cornish hens looked dried out and unappetizing. Not nearly the selection like when it was Paula Deen's place. Desserts were the only good thing. Won't be going back when at... More

I like the food, the staff was always great and friendly. I dislike she is gone and how Paula Deen was treated over all. This case was dismissed but the restaurant is gone.
