    OK, making a trip to New Orleans next week. I have one $100 food voucher that HAS to be spent on this trip. It was targeted for the Buffet at Harrahs NO or Besh Steakhouse.

    I just found out that Harrahs Biloxi provides two free buffets for 7* members. My BFF and I will be traveling to Biloxi anyway.

    Where would you rate the Biloxi buffet against the NO buffet, or is there no comparison.

    BTW, we do have other meals scheduled at restaurants like Commander's Palace, Antoines, and I'm going to Willie Mae's Scotch House to satisfy my Fried Chicken craving.

    The Biloxi buffet is just ok. Nice big shrimp and good seafood though.

    As a reminder, being 7 stars gets you a steak to go with the buffet.

    Remember to use your $120 spa credit while you are there.

    I have not done the Biloxi buffet, but I tried the harrahs NOR buffet a little over a month ago and was not impressed.

    We have done both and I would be hard pressed to recommend either. Besh is very good and a much better option, IMHO...............Rick

    Both the NO and Biloxi buffets are average, at best... IMO, they are comparable to the Gold Coast/Orleans buffet in LV, only more expensive....Harrahs NO buffet has a bigger selection of food items than Biloxi, which is very small/limited and IIRC, no breakfast.

    i would use it at besh or some of the other choices...yes the buffet in new orleans had dropped off a lil bit but they are bringing back items to bring it back up. most casinos around here and all down the coast cut crabs b/c of price but are now getting them back

    as for NO or gulf coast, hands down its new orleans...I have eaten many times at GC and it is usually good but it is small and now they cut days and hours when they are even open so you may want to look into that...plus side to GC you get the steak for you plus one guest, they were slow one night and gave all 4 of us steaks, also GC is cheaper but it shows all around

    Well, we can't "gorge" on excellent food 100% of the time. I just "hate" to leave "free" food on the table. Thanks for all of the suggestions. You'll hear what we did in my TR.

    I have used CET RCs for Commander's Palace. I believe it's a 1.00=2 RCs and you have to go through the Total Rewards counter at Harrah's to get a voucher. There's a pretty good list of other places that you can use RCs around N.O. that you should check out.

    I recommend Magnolia House in Harrah's Biloxi for a nice meal and to use your 100.00. I did that in the summer and my wife and I were impressed. If you want to go non-casino dining in Biloxi, go to Mary Mahoney's. It's across the street from Beau Rivage. Check it out for sure.

    Regarding Commander's Palace, been through that on another thread. I will be using Mastercard Gift cards (from GGWU) to pay for the meals. I go to Las Vegas ($1:100 destination) 5-6 times a year, so using $1:200 just "doesn't make sense".

    The $100 voucher is left over from my 7* and I may use it up in Reno/Tahoe on my trip 1/20/17 weekend.

    Thanks for the tip on Magnolia House.

    Texan here! We visit HNO 2 times a year. I personally think that the buffet is not so good, bust BESH is Ok. I personally recommend Atchafalaya Cafe for brunch, they have a New Orleans twist on all the traditional brunch items. You can look it up on open table. Also just across the front left there is a place called Cafe Adelaide, owned by Brennan's, that has brunch as well. On Sundays they have .25 martinies if you wear your best hat!! Food is pretty good too!! JIMOP. Best of luck, and as always Laissez les bon temps roulez!!
     
    VEGAS AGAIN! LET’S WIN BIG!!!!!
