Best Casual Dining options in Atlantic City?

My wife and I are going to a concert at the House of Blues on Saturday. We will be attired rather casually and wanted to find out what options we have for a good pre-show dinner at an establishment that has a casual dress code.

Most of the decently reviewed restaurants appear to fall under the "business casual" category.

Help us out chowhounds!

    Little place Big flavors.

    Depends what you are looking for.

    Most casino hotels have a buffet. Our favorite is the Virginia city buffet at the Wild Wild West casino adjacent to Caesars.

    Borgata buffet had nice food but a problem with the hot foods not being really hot.

    If you really want to get casual Whitehouse Subs. A regular joint.

    Trump buffet used to be a fave with the crablegs but they started using way too much salt in the boil.

    Showboat, where the concert is has a nice buffet too. House of blues has a restaurant that I have not tried.

      The two times we've grabbed a bite there before a concert, I've enjoyed the HOB food (once at the bar, once at a table).

      That said, leave plenty of time to get into the show - it was crowded and service wasn't too fast (but not particularly slow) ... I imagine that's a norm for a show night there.

        Thanks for the recs, has anyone eaten at Casa Di Napoli at the showboat? It looks as though they have reasonably priced pizza and salads.
