Horseshoe Casino Restaurants

How are the restaurants at the Horseshoe? I have a $100 food credit and am seriously thinking about the steakhouse which seems to be high dollar. Is it great? Any other recommendations?

As near as I can tell (and I didn't spend any real time on it), there are two "Horseshoe" casinos in Indiana (one north & one south). Suggest you clarify which one you're talking about and/or post your question on the specific city forum associated with the one you're interested in.

About all I can add at this time is that you might check restaurant related websites to see if there are reviews, etc. regarding the restaurant. I use Urbanspoon and I know people who use Yelp (which I don't for various reasons), Chowhound is another. And, of course, there is also TA, but I don't know anyone who uses TA as their "go to" restaurant site (for lots of reasons). Can't say whether you'll find out anything at these sites, but it's worth a try.

Sorry I couldn't give an answer, but hope this helps,

Thanks! I am looking at Horseshoe in Southern Indiana. That's all that the site says, no specific city. Looking at the map maybe it's Elizabeth? I'll try their specific forum.

Thanks again!

You might also try the Louisville, KY forum. It is pretty much right accross the river from there so I'm sure many patrons come from there.

I'm not a big fan of any of the dining facilities in Horseshoe Southern Indiana, but if I had a comp I would certainly eat there. It's not horrible, it's just very overpriced. When I pay for gourmet food, I want gourmet food. I prefer to take the 15 minute drive to Downtown Louisville. Free food is good food, though.

The Paula Deen Buffet is mediocre. I went on a seafood night. In true Paula Deen style, it's all home style type dishes and swimming in butter. I was pretty disappointed that none of it tasted like the spectacular southern fare that I get when I go to the deep south. The seafood area was swarming with people, as in, every time the containers were restocked the same people would go clean them out. The buffet didn't have a lot of variety and a lot of the same dishes were offered. After you get a quarter of they way through the buffet, it kind of just started all over again with the exact same foods. The salad bar was horrible, a few kinds of lettuce, cheese, croutons. Ugh. I haven't been there in months though, so perhaps it's changed, or maybe my granny in Mississippi has ruined me and no one else in southern Indiana knows what good southern food is....hmmm. lol

I went to Jack Binions once and it was good. The steak was cooked well and the sides were delicious. The staff wasn't that great. I wouldn't go back and pay for a meal there, but if it's comped, I would certainly go back.

Legends gets busy at night, they have live bands on the weekends and they have good apps.

You might get more responses on the Kentucky board. Horseshoe Southern Indiana is right on the Ohio River, just down from Louisville. It draws quite a Kentcuky crowd.

Thanks for the info. I have been to Paula Deens in Savannah, GA (wonderful!) and to Paula Deen's at Harrah's in Cherokee - not so good. Don't know why the casino's wouldn't have the best....guess that's another Vegas thing they haven't copied! I'll post on Louisville board too - I've had a couple of suggestions now to do that.
