It shut down and no longer in business. This restaurant just close it doors without notice to the public. I think there were problems with the lease and food quality.

There actually was notice to the public. It had nothing to do with food quality, but rather the casino wanting to monopolize the restaurants in their building. Thanks for 9 years!

Use to love going there. Closed down. No more business there. Rumor has it that rent was raised to high . Sorry to see it go.

The rent was fine and paid up - the casino wants to run ALL of the restaurants in there now. Thanks for 9 years!

Had a visit with friends to Doc Magrogans for a friends reunion. All of our appetizer, salads and dinners were delicious, we had a variety of seafood as well as beef dinners. And the bar drinks were scrumptious! I would definitely recommend Doc Magrogans!!
