I won't eat at any buffet in Vegas, or anywhere else for that matter. ... Has anyone ever gone to the GN in Biloxi?
When I visit Biloxi, I often stop at the Golden Nugget, just to let them know I'm in town. On Wednesdays seniors get half-off buffet (B or L) and a free slot tournament (each require some -- but not a lot of -- points earned that day, IIRC). I'm pretty easy to please, and I consider the GN buffet about average. (FWIW, I consider the following buffets as "above average": Beau Rivage, Island View (in Gulfport), and Hard Rock. I consider Harrahs Gulfcoast and Scarlet Pearl as "below average." Others are "average.")
As far as games, GN tries to compete with the Beau Rivage, and it ain't no Beau Rivage. But, it tries, often with higher limits on games I like (when they are open). The casino-hotel layout is a catastrophe. Only one bathroom on the main gaming floor, and you have to pack your lunch before you head off to it. Slots scattered here, there, and everywhere, each requiring security to make sure no minors play. That's certain to increase costs. And, don't even get me started on the "artistically designed" hotel rooms. Yech!
