    Land Shark Bar & Grill: Great Place with a Beach View

    Having a Great Time(8/2/13)

    After leaving Margaritaville across the boardwalk my wife and I decided to have a nice lunch here.

    The Land Shark Bar & Grill is an installation of Margaritaville but acorss the boardwalk right on the beach. This place has a more casual vibe and relaxed atmosphere. The decor is simple and the menu has more casual fare such as hotdogs, warm pretzel sticks, grilled cheese sandwiches, tater tots and the like. What I loved the most was their large outdoor deck. Nothing is better than eating outside with a beach view.

    There was a wait for tables outside but our waitress managed to seat us at a high table close to the deck that still had the great view. We settled in and ordered some drinks. I chose to have an unsweetened ice tea and Liz ordered a Fins 2 the Left Margarita. After perusing the food offering we decided to start with an appetiser first to guage how hungry we really were. The Chps & Dips caught our eye. The appetizer was tortilla chips served warm with salsa and queso.

    Our appetizer arrived soon after ordering and it was huge; there was no way were were finishing this. This was an excellent choice though. the salsa was so good and the queso was amazing. We tried our hardest to finish but surrendered with many chips left in the bowl. Our waitress asked if we wanted anything else and we said we surrender...no more food please. She laughed saying their appetizers are so big they can feed 3-4 and we know that for sure (their volcano nachos can feed 4-6 people).

    I absolutely loved this place. I could spend a whole day just sitting here admiring the beach and water views. The casual beach vibe was nice and you didn't feel rushed here to get out of the table.

    Borgata Buffet: Buffet time!

    by PinkFloydActuary Updated Dec 31, 2011
    Lunch time!
    3 more images

    While the rest of my time in AC was a bit of a downer, the trip to the Borgata buffet was definitely a good time. First of all, for lunch, there are many buffets that don't open at all, or are on very limited hours. I got over here as soon as it opened to make sure I didn't wast precious time in a long line. As usual, there are several stations - Italian, Mexican, a carvery, Asian, and dessert. I ended up going through 4 times before dessert. The pizza was excellent, there was a Chorizo frittata that ruled, some of the steamed veggies were great, and they even had Philly cheesesteaks! While the cost was on the higher side, the food was all really excellent. Dishes were cleared away promptly. Unlike the higher end Vegas buffets, this one is food you know, done really well. The only lacking item was the dessert section...there's plenty to try, just nothing too memorable. Totally worth the stop.

    yes
    4 more images

    One of the attractions in Harrah's Resorts in Atlantic City and the buffett here is awesome the choices are endless, when we dined here in 2005, the buffett price was $ 24.99 but as of today, the buffett prices are $ 29.99 a person and the Resto was formerly called Fantasea Reef Buffett but was renamed to Waterfront Buffett in 2007. Having a Harrah's card has it's perks and when I was winning big in 2005, I had accumulated enough to have a free buffett here for three persons. The buffett is a 620-seat, 22-foot-ceilinged, neatly chandeliered buffet restaurant and has a 37,000 square feet of room and the buffett serves about 140 different meals and 9 different food stations from sea food to asian and italian. There is a long wait line in going to the Buffett.

    Favorite Dish: the assorted meals but the star would be the prime rib steaks and the snow crabs and the traditional casino meal of shrimps with cocktails plus the corn chowder, magnifico.

    Hours: Sun: 9am - 9pm
    Mon: Noon - 9pm
    Tues, Wed: 4pm - 9pm
    Thurs: Noon - 9pm; Fri: 4 - 9pm

    Mc Donalds: Budget Food What Else!

    by machomikemd Written Jun 22, 2011
    yes
    4 more images

    hey I can Be a cheapskate at times specially if I lost at the casino (no thanks to bally's and you too trump and Ceasars) and then having a lot of drinks and too much hours at the bare exposure strip club hehehe and hence my breakfast this time is at the nearby Mc Donalds in Atlantic Avenue for a cheap fix of proteins and carbohydrates (my harrah's card has not enough points for a free buffett breakfast at the moment). Do I really need an explanation of Mc Donalds?

    Favorite Dish: for a guy down on his luck type like me then a simple breakfast meal of Mc Cafe Large Iced Latte at $ 3.50 to perk me up (hey it taste better than starbucks but dunkin donuts have the best Iced Latte for me) and a sausage biscuit or a bug breakfast meal special at $ 7 to rev up my energy.

    a budget buffett in the middle of wild west casino area of bally's at the second floor via an escalator with a big dining area and six buffett stations. Price of a Buffett is $ 15.95 a person.

    According to their website:

    Six Exhibition Cooking Stations

    Asian Station:
    Everyone’s talking about our taste bud treasures of the Far East. Watch as our chefs sear four fresh and delicious Asian wok specialties right before your eyes.

    Chuck Wagon Station:

    Dessert Station:
    We’ve saved the sweetest part for last! Indulge in hand-dipped ice cream, soft serve ice cream and yogurt, fruit salad, fruit pies, tarts as well as a wide variety of sugar free cakes, puddings and baked goods.

    Favorite Dish: a lot specially the prime rib steak what else and what casino buffett is complete without the traditional shrimp cocktail right? The meals here are average but for a hungry group from queens on a 2 1/2 hour drive, who cares?

    Hours: Monday-Thursday - Noon - 8pm

    Red Square: Vodka anyone?

    by Lhenne1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2 more images

    Red Square is a Russian-themed restaurant specializing in caviar and vodka (though for quite the price). Located inside the Tropicana Resort, the restaurant is more high-scale than some of the choices in the same area.

    Although expensive, you are certainly paying for great service and amazing food. The menu consists of a variety of meat and seafood dishes. I had a salmon dinner that was wonderfully tender. About seven different caviars are offered, from the $300+ Beluga to the more manageable salmon and trout roe. Aside from the extensive wine menu is the vodka and martini menu.

    The atmosphere is RED...as in red-tinted lighting, wall color and furniture. The best part, though, has to be the bar. A true ice bar, half of the serving area is actually ice. You definitely don't need to worry about your drinks getting warm as you sip. Two large ice pillars also act as focal points int he lunge area of the restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: Chocolate cake for dessert. The cake is made with a gooey center of dark chocolate and served with vanilla ice cream and strawberries.

    IL Mulino New York: Fine Italian Dining

    by robertlarsonjr Written Dec 6, 2010

    The resturant has a romantic setting with dim lights, bar in the front, and tables with white table clothes each with a candle on it. The staff will come by and clean off your table with a scrapper and give you cheese at various times of your meal. The food was really good.

    Metropolitan Cafe: We had an excellent breakfast here

    by Gypsystravels Updated Jul 29, 2009

    French Toast Swirl Banana Fosters
    3 more images

    The Metropolitan is located at the Borgata Casino and is open 24 hours a day serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with a really nice full bar, seafood bar and a dessert case with yummy treats.

    My girlfriends were staying at the Water Club and we were staying at Harrah's and decided to meet here for some breakfast before us girls went out to do some shopping leaving Ferni to continue playing the tables.

    The restaurant is quite nice, with the Parisian feel of dark wood with three sections. There is an area in front of the restaurant where you can sit under some umbrellas and watch people walk by, there is an area where the bar is with some really nice tables and booths and then, behind a large sliding door there is another dining are where we were seated. The restaurant is quite large and we did not have to wait to be seated. My friends asked that we go ahead and be seated and start breakfast as they were running late, so we were taken to the back and our waiter brought over the menus, asked if we wanted water and coffee and left to come back to take our order.

    We looked over the menu and I instantly knew I had to try the French Toast Swirl Banana Fosters, with a side of home fries (love my potatoes), Ferni decided on steak and eggs, his eggs scrambled.

    The food was so delicious and I would definitely come back for either breakfast or even lunch or dinner.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered the French Toast Swirl Banana Fosters which are three french toasts with cinnamon swirl topped with bananas...it was so yummy and way too much food for me, so Alice decided to share with me!! Ferni had the steak and scrambled eggs and he said his steak was okay, nothing to rave about!
