The name of this restaurant may have changed (for obvious reasons), but the food is still the same. The decor is the same as well, minus the previous network stars' name all over the place.
The food is adequate from the menu. The buffet (this night it was fried catfish, fried chicken and fried shrimp). I can't understand why restaurants insist on steam tables to keep food warm, when all it does to fried foods is make it soggy and tasteless. The shrimp were so salty, it was almost unfit to eat. Chicken was very dry. The best part of the buffet was the vegetable medley.
All in all, I wouldn't go out of my to eat here again. I suggest Harrahs' finds another use for this large room. Sorry, but it just doesn't cut it.

Paula Deen's kitchen is a great place to eat. I have never had a meal there that I did not enjoy. I have eaten her fried chicken and her meat loaf dinners are wonderful. The restaurant itself is on the ground floor of Harrahs and a very pleasant place to sit and relax and eat your meals. I found that the buffet although small is still to much for breakfast, so I just enjoy a choice of breakfast foods off the menu. The prices are good along with the food and service.

A little pricey although the food is good, service was good and wait time was short. Must have gotten there at a good time (10:45 am)

Great atmosphere!! Right beside a beautifully landscaped creek and you can see the casino. I had the key lime salmon and it was absolutely wonderful! My companion had the buffet and it was just so so. I've had the crab cake sandwich another time and it was really good. So is the Shore is Good Crab Dip!!

Food was excellent, prices a little high. Service was top of the line. View of the creek was excellent and the decor of the resturant was clean, modern, and inspired a comfortable feel.
