Casino dining often equals buffet and buffet often equals disappointment. At the Borgata, they strive to remove the disappointment from that equation. Hand-carved prime rib, sirloin, a variety of shellfish, Chinese standards, sushi, salads, pasta, tables full of desserts—almost all the usual suspects are here (sorry king crab leg fans). Popularity keeps everything fresh and the room rates and table minimums at the casino keep the quality high. The dining room is pleasant, with deep comfortable booths, but its more functional than fashionable.
