We have eaten at the Casino many times and are always delighted with the experience. It nice to be able to take the different generations of the family and find it is welcoming for them all. The staff are courteous and thorough without being overbearing. The food is always delicious and with the return of the buffet it means that everyone can find something that they enjoy. Highly recommend.

We had never been here for a meal and to be honest we were pleasantly surprised on how good the food was and how well it was presented. The service was outstanding and the waitress was very helpful and informative. We will definitely go again and we will definitely recommend to all friends and family. We have already planned our next visit.

We had a wonderful time with friends at The Grand Cafe. So many delicious things to try from the buffet. There was nothing that wasn't beautifully presented. Just as well I didn't actually taste everything or I might not have been able to walk down the stairs to go home. The service was also superb. Hope we can go back soon.

We had a great time at The Grand Café. The food and service were excellent. They even had a pecan pie that reminded me of my childhood Thanksgiving celebrations. We couldn't have been happier (or more full!).

The foods are delicious. We enjoyed the seafoods chowder and there are lots of variety of foods to choose from. The place is very tidy and most of all, not noisy. Theres no other place where you could have a 1$ drink.

On a freezing, rainy night - this was the place to be! Not crowded, plenty of tables to choose from and a fantastic variety of food, there was definitely something for everyone.

Really good food and a generous amount of allocated time, so we didn’t feel rushed at all. Service was good and the food was always topped up. The dessert table was the best and had tonne of options, wish there were more options for mains and sides too. But overall a nice experience!
