Sam's Town Casino Buffett, Robinsonville, MS

Sam's Town Tunica


I went there tonight to the Great Buffet for the first time in a number of years, and to be honest, I was a little disappointed. The food was mostly average, but the fried catfish was kind of stringy. I didn't happen to take any pictures like I usually do, but it was standard buffet fare.

I got some fried shrimp which was pretty good, a piece of fried catfish which I didn't eat all of, some chicken and dumplings, some macaroni and cheese, some Asian stir fried mushrooms with pork, and a small piece of what I think was supposed to be cheesecake. By far, the best item was the Asian mushroom dish, which was very tasty, but everything else was average. The waiter was very friendly and kept our drinks refilled, so I was was pleased with the service.

Friday night is BBQ and ribs night, but I didn't happen to get either of those. The ribs looked good and my friend that was with me got some, but didn't comment on how he liked them and I forgot ask.

I received a coupon in the mail for a free buffet so I didn't pay out of pocket for it, and to be honest, it would not have been worth the $20 it would have normally cost. The best part of the trip was the fact that I won $20 using a free play coupon that was included with the buffet coupon.

It's also worth mentioning just so it's clear, I went at about 5:30 PM so I wasn't there late or during the last few minutes before they were about to close. It had only been open about a hour and a half when I arrived, and was scheduled to be open for another few hours.

That said, however, I have been Twain's Steakhouse and Smokey Joe's Cafe (the cafe has great sandwiches) and both of those have always been good, so overall, I would recommend Sam's Town, I just wasn't awestruck by their buffet.

Bonus review:

On November 27, 2017, I ate at Twain's Steakhouse at Sam's Town and it was very good. It's a much more formal atmosphere, but casual enough for the average person. This is the 6 ounce filet with Bearnaise sauce, baked potato, and Caesar salad. Prices are about what you would expect for a semi-formal steakhouse. The total bill for two people for one entree, side item, and a salad was right at $100, but it was worth it even though I didn't have to pay (I had a comp).

They are only open Thursday through Sunday after 5:00 PM.
