Only decent place left in A/C is the Borgata!

Maybe try Revel but not well organized!

We can steer you in the right directions if you tell us what you're seeking to eat. Is there any particular cuisine you're seeking?

A lot of people like Margaritaville at Resorts. Relish at Revel is getting good reviews for food and price, it has something like a diner menu. I think Village Whiskey at Revel has the best burgers $14, duck fries are $7.

I agree with Village Whiskey at Revel and will add Amada there as well.

Since you will be staying on the Boardwalk, I would also recommend Revel for its variety of restaurant options. As mentioned above, Village Whiskey and Amada are both popular options. Mussel Bar is good if you enjoy a Belgian-style gastropub with an extensive beer list. There is no buffet at Revel, but that doesn't seem to be something which you seek, anyhow.

Resorts is quite popular right now with all of the Margaritaville-themed changes. Definitely a lot of different food and drink options there, as well.

Zeke848...first off...Resorts is nowhere near as nice or as large as Mohegan Sun...but they've done well with the renovations. Try and get a room in the Rendevous Tower if you can...the rooms are nicer and the bathrooms are quite spacious.

The main floor is where you'll find all of the gaming, the hotel lobby, Promotions Booth, 25 Hours Bar, It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar, Margaritaville, Margaritaville Coffee Shop. The hallways that runs parallel to the casino has a few shops and a place to grab individual craft beers, wine, and cigars. Land Shark Bar & Grill is located across the boardwalk on the beach. The second floor has the buffet, 4 restaurants and the theater. You will also find an indoor walkway to Taj Mahal if the weather is bad.

I would give Margaritaville or Land Shark a try for lunch or dinner...Land Shark being more of a lunch place, in my opinion. The food court will most likely not be open in time so it's tough to find a place for a "quick bite" at Resorts. The second floor of Taj (right next door) has plenty of places if you're looking for a snack or light meal. If you're visiting during the week...25 Hours Bar has HH from 2-7 p.m. M-F. They have specials on bottled beer, wine, and well drinks. We love to visit the Irish Pub for cheap food and drinks. It's at most a 10 minute walk from Resorts located right off the boardwalk at St. James Place...it's a "no frills" old-fashioned Irish Pub. Tropicana has plenty of dining options depending on your preference...it's about a 30 minute walk unless you take a cab or the Jitney. They just opened up a few new restaurants...you should check out their website.

Hope you have a great time. We were able to stay at Mohegan about a year ago. We were able to get a great room rate by contacting a host. This was before Mohegan officially took over Resorts so they couldn't comp us...but it was a great stay and paid a fraction of the price. Do you have a host at Mohegan? You may be able to get passes to the Player's Lounges...you can always ask to speak with the host on duty and see what they can do for you!

Capriccio's in Resorts is an excellent Italian restaurant and not too expensive.
