I have to say that I am not a gambler, but I went to celebrate a friends birthday. We had dinner at the Live! Buffet and the food was pretty good. Most people dive head first into the crab legs, but I stuck to the filet mignon and Asian & Italian cuisine. The filet was very tender and well flavored. The Asian food was okay, but the pizza and the pasta w/meatballs were delicious. The buffet had a wide variety, I didn't even get to sample everything. To top it off, they have a frozen yogurt and ice cream bar with lots of variety.
On to the casino. First of all it was PACKED! There were swarms of people everywhere and it was loud, but hey it's a casino not a library. I played around on the slot machines for a bit and walked out only $25 poorer (I'm very frugal). I don't really drink but I was surprised to find out that you had to pay for your alcoholic beverages on the floor, they only offered free soda. I thought that was very tacky as I've been to Atlantic City and thought it was customary that they provided free drinks. The lines for the ATM's and cashout machines were pretty long, but it you practice a little patience it's not that bad. The parking was crazy, even though they have a garage, but because so many people were there it was just a lil' wild. I'll def valet the next time I go. There's a Phillips Seafood, and a few other restaurants circling the casino. I snagged a slice of cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory on my way out. There's also a coat check and the restrooms were very clean.
This is a BEAUTIFUL casino, however I can understand why others think its sub-par. Please don't expect Vegas or even Atlantic City, however with it only being 2.5 hours from my house, it made for a nice day trip. I'm going back this weekend for my 35th birthday with a slew of my family and friends. Will def write another review after this experience.
