My wife and I stayed two nights in Vicksburg and we visited the Vicksburg National Military Park and the local casinos. The Ameristar Casino was one of the nicest we have visited in Mississippi. It was upscale, the staff were smartly dressed, and the casino was clean and well maintained. We are not smokers, so we appreciated the two large "No Smoking" gambling areas. And the air handlers worked well so the smoking was not obtrusive in the rest of the casino. There were many slots (including top technologies) and other machines as well as dealer games. We had lunch at Bella's Bakery & Cafe and were also impressed with their friendly servers and the quality of their food. The manager made a point of coming by our table to see that we were satisfied. We did not visit the buffet and did not stay in the hotel so we cannot comment on them. But Ameristar in Vicksburg is as close to Las Vegas as you will get in Mississippi.

Went there to grab a bite to eat. They only had their seafood buffet at $24.99 + tax per person. I really didn't want seafood and they offered nothing else.

We do serve our seafood buffet Friday and Saturday nights at Heritage Buffet, which includes our seafood specials along with our other buffet favorites. In addition to the buffet, we also offer two more restaurants, Bella’s Bakery & Café and Bourbon’s BBQ & Steaks. Each dining option is unique as we do our best to satisfy each of our guests’ tastes.

Simply an average casino at best. Vicksburg is not a large population area and as such does not warrant the big bucks lay out by the casino companies. If you are passing through and wish to game, it as the other casinos in the area are a pleasant diversion.

Have eaten there before, but not this trip, and found the food to be average at best. There are restaurants in town that are a better bet.

The Ameristar is a very, clean casino-not too smoky and easy to find. We stayed and played a few hours then on to the next one!

This casino has the most number of slot machines over the other 3 casinos in the area. We played awhile, didn't really win but it was clean and nice.
