“Casino Buffet”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This is a casino buffet so you are going to finds lots of good food, and lots of different types of food. However, remember it is a casino buffet in south Mississippi not Vagas the food will be good to very good but the price will be higher, this buffet is like the others in south Mississippi priced to feed players who hace comps. but even without a comp. we have eaten here and I was not unhappy with what I got for about 25 dollar (With tip) per person. Also, service was good for a casino buffet.

“Overpriced without coupons”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

The price for the breaksfast buffet is somewhat reasonable, considering that it includes beverages. However, the eggs seem to be "processed egg product" of some sort, the pancakes are usually lukewarm at best, and the bacon and sausage are usually very greasy. The lunch and dinner buffets are more expensive and do have many options, but they are of average quality for a buffet.

“Great Food”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

FOOD GREAT...and thats all I have to say about that establishment! I would never stay there again, gamble there again nor recommend to a friend. Do yourself a favor and stop off in Biloxi or go on to New Orleans.

“Wonderful!!!!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

The biggest cleanest properly seasoned and steamed snow crablegs I have ever had. A very attwntive staff. It is also nice to finish off your meal by dropping a few dollars in the slot machine and hitting the 2x jackpot right off the bat. Time to cash out and leave, 520.00 more than I came in with.
Maybe I'll see ya down here next week, Bon Apetite!!!

“NO GOOD”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

They have crabs but you can't eat them, very small the bucket is always empty and they crabs look dirty...
They had softshell crabs, they were good but they took them off, and don't let them tell you they are out of season that is not true.
They have fried shrimp but they have been frozen.
News flash your casino is on the coast buy local fresh seafood.
Don't let them fool you with their "biggest" dessert bar on the coast, it maybe a nice size but that doesn't matter if your dessert is horrible.
Trust me I was born and raised on the coast and any other casino on the coast has this place beat by a long shot..
