    Hi, everybody. I'm staying at the South Point resort in May. I have not been in Vegas since December of 2012, and I have never been to South Point before but from what I have read and seen, it looks like a good place to stay, play and eat. My question for you is this: how is the comp drink action at South Point? Are they known to flow smoothly or is there any lagging drink service? I know that the more you tip your server (which I do) the more action you'll get, but I just want some more recent experiences and opinions, if you have been there lately. Since I'll be staying there, I will probably be eating and playing there almost exclusively, but I will venture out to some other properties....where do you think is the best comp drink service? Where do you like to go to get your drink on? Where are your favorite best (or least, depending on your POV) dressed servers?
    Thanks for your time and opinions!Can't wait to get there, party on everyone!! VEGAS BABY!!

    I'm not sure if you play slots or table games but when I've played craps at SP the drink service was good.

    BTW, welcome to the board.

    I've always enjoyed staying, eating, and gambling at South Point.

    I stayed there the first month they were open as "South Coast" and on a couple of subsequent trips, as well. I ALWAYS go there at least once during any Las Vegas trip for the Graveyard steak and eggs special in the Coronado Café, which is the best quality and value in L.V. (They also have a Steak 'n' Shake there, but I've never eaten there since I can eat there in my home town. I notice that you're from Indy, so you'll, no doubt, feel the same. Unless you're homesick. Which can happen about any time. Come to think of it, I might just have to get a chili 3-ways for lunch! The late Roger Ebert and I are in complete agreement about SnS food, BTW.)

    We've enjoyed all of their dining places with the exception of Michael's, because I'm just not a big "gourmet" food appreciator. If you are, however, Michael's has a reputation for being one of the best fine dining restaurants in Las Vegas, dating from when it was located in the old Barbary Coast. (Owned by Michael Gaughn, who built and owns South Point.)

    As for the cocktail service, I've found it to be entirely normal for most Las Vegas casinos. Tipping helps, and you can always ask the dealer or pit boss to request service.

    I was just there a little over a week ago during the MLK holiday in the early afternoon. I did have to ask at the crap table, "Say, did you give your cocktail waitresses the day off for the holiday?" as I requested a waitress. the box man replied, 'We are a little short handed." After she did come around the service was prompt and regular. In their defense, I do believe that S.P. had an employee event that was just letting out about the time I arrived. There was a cop directing the huge stream of cars leaving the parking garage, and there was a notice inside that one of their restaurants was closed for an event. So , I'm willing to cut them some slack for being understaffed on the holiday.

    I've never been disappointed in the accommodations (Spacious!!), food, or service there. It's a great place to play, stay, and eat.

    Another note: Of course, they cater to the "horsey" set there and we've noticed that their clientele, whether the moneyed, show jumping types or the rodeo crowd has always been polite, down to earth, and polite.

    IMHO; The best (or LEAST) dressed cocktail servers are at the Rio, unless they've changed their outfits in the past few years.

    At the table games, drink service has always been good and quick! (stayed there twice, been there around 10 times)
    Staying there to celebrate my birthday in 2 weeks. It's my favorite place to drink and play, stumble to the elevators and dive into the king bed in the spacious room. Love it!
