1. Re: Has anyone visited Harlow's Casino in Greenville, MS

Okay. I know absolutely nothing about what the casino has to offer . . . though I have driven past it while crossing the river into Arkansas on a few occasions. It is a very attractive, very NEW construction. I do know that it has an entertainment arena--George Jones performed there recently and other notables are expected soon--John Anderson, Carrie Underwood, Gretchen Wilson, etc.

Greenville doesn't have a lot of "chain" restaurants. Having said that, however, there are several very good eateries in the area--most notably Doe's Eat Place (nationally renowned for its steaks and hot tamales, as well as its location and eclectic decor) and Posecai's Restaurant (gourmet restaurant run by a N.O. trained chef). Sherman's is also a good restaurant to try. Fermo's is a nice Italian restaurant in town . . . . Tabb's has excellent barbeque. San Juan, El Charro and El Toro offer good Mexican fare. If you're willing to drive about 15 minutes, Lillo's in Leland (also Italian) and the Bourbon Mall (great steaks and unique catfish dishes) are good as well. Connie's Kitchen, a business run by local Mennonites, affords excellent fare in the way of auce catfish and shrimp on Friday nights--it is also in Leland (oh, you won't want to miss Connie's cinnamon rolls and other baked goods--they are to die for).

As far as attractions go, we have all the "normal" small town amenities--a very nice new movie theatre and a recently refurbished bowling alley. There are a few nightclubs in the downtown area; the local chamber of commerce is committed to building up that part of town as the Blues District. I can't comment on that because DH and I are homebodies and don't get out on the town much. We have a few small museums that may be of interest--Greenville was devastated by the Great Flood of 1927; both the Greenville History Museum and McCormick's Book Inn have extensive exhibits which depict the flood, relief efforts, etc. Just west of town is Warfield Point Park, situated next to the Mississippi River, w/ a look out tower and recreation area. North of town is another small park/museum, Winterville Mounds--devoted to preserving the site and history of mounds used in Native American ceremonies. And . . . Leland offers the Jim Henson Muppet Museum and a blues museum (I think). There is a franchise of the ABA--the Mississippi Stingers, I believe--their home court is at the Washington County Convention Center.

As far as shopping goes, the mall doesn't offer much, but if you get out and look around, we have a number of boutique type shops that offer some unusual things--Lagniappe, Crystal Frog, and others that don't come to mind immediately (I'm not much of a shopper).

Hope it helps!

I has a restaurant that has a seafood buffet, and a quick order restaurant that has the biggest best hamburgers! We won over $600. on the Penny slots, unbelievable, enjoy, we loved it.

I've gambled there just a little, enough that I was on their mailing list and got a great offer from them for Valentine's day. We had a beautiful suite, a wonderful seafood buffet (small buffet, but very tasty), saw a great show, etc. We really enjoyed it, had a great weekend. I'll be going back. There's not a lot in Greenville, it's a very poor little town, and the water is brown, for some reason, although the casino does a better than average job of filtering that out. It's only slightly brown there.

There was a restaurant that doesn't appear on here, only five in Greenville DO for some reason, but a little drive through line at a TRAILER called "Hot Tamale Heaven" that should not be missed. I picked up a dozen to take home, but had the chile pie (three tamales with wonderful chile over them) to enjoy before I started driving home. I'll probably never visit Greenville without a quick stop there.
