Taj - Chairman's Club

We just got back from the Taj. I have to say, the Chairman's Club buffet is the sorriest thing ever!!! If you can believe it, the food there was worst than the actual Taj Buffet or the 'Boardwalk Buffet' (which we also tried). When the trays were empty and people asked to have them replaced, the answer was always the same - ' we have to wait until someone goes to the Taj Buffet upstairs to get more'. The desserts were non-existant and the service was even worst. The food and the service was really not good - PERIOD!!!!!

Has anyone else had the same experience?

i am kind of shocked because i have eaten at the taj chairmans club numerous times and thought it was one of the better buffets, havent been there in a while so either the quality really dropped or you caught it on an off day.

Last year we made Chairman status and were able to use the Chairman's club for the $10 comp per person. Spent one weekend evening dining at the lounge and being that we are regulars at the Amphora lounge in the Borgata for many years now, It was a difficult transition.

The patrons at the chairman's club that day seemed comfortable and very much at home . Calling for waiters by their first names. I am sure this was their long time home base casino.

The food was cafeteria style food. Nothing about the club suggested a higher club level experience for upgraded players.

The food was quite awful and the display of food was actually quite depressing . Even considering chowing down on it gave us the willies.

They claim to have renovated the club recently and while they were closed on our second trip we were directed to the second floor for an unlimited ordering of limited and nasty food. The pork chops were actually ham steaks covered in pink sauce..yuk!

I do not know if the renovated club is better or not so i will not comment on that.

This June they reset the Taj tier numbers back to 0.

Honestly, we wont be perusing the chairman status at the Taj again.

The offers have dropped to a measly $15.00 or $20.00 in slot play, per trip, two free nights per week as usual and many non exciting promotional giveaways. Not something worthy of a 3rd tier level.

So sometimes you have to go with what you know such as "The Amphora Lounge" and you will appreciate it more when you have tried something new.

I just spoke to my sister- who is A.C. at the moment - and she said that when they went to the Chairman's Club it was the same as when we went - terrible!! She was complaining about the plastic cups that her waiter gave them when they requested Diet Coke. That was the last that they saw of him except when they were getting up to go. Then he asked if there was anything else that he could do for them. She said that she was tempted to say something really nasty but instead they wished him a great evening (left only $2.00 Tip).

That is how we felt. Our waiter did the same STUPID thing. We saw him when we sat down - he brought us our diet Cokes in plastic glasses - and then he disapeared until we stood up to leave. It was a carbon copy of what she told me happened to her.

All this to say - nothing has changed. SORRY - I made a mistake. There were two small changes - the room was reduced in size to accommodate the restaurant next door and they changed the carpet.

I guess that we will spend more time at the Borg even though it is not on the Boardwalk. We love the Amphora Lounge. Maybe that is the problem - we are comparing apples with rubber (not even oranges)!!
