5 30-something ladies in AC for a night - one veggie, one pescatarian, 3 omnivores

Hi All,

Thanks in advance for your help.

5 of us are coming down from NYC for a weekend, and we're going to do a fun (but not particularly wild) Saturday night out on the town. I'm looking for a great dinner for one vegetarian, one person who eats fish, and 3 omnivores. Good food and drinks, decent atmosphere, within walking distance to various casinos (or preferably IN one), and entrees around $20 or under. Open to different kinds of cuisines.

Thanks so much!!

    1. I think it will be hard to find a decent casino restaurant with entrees under $20...but hovering a bit over that, Cuba Libre in the Trop is fun and the food and drinks are pretty good.

      1. All the good restaurants in the casinos wiil set you back a good deal more than $20 per entree.
        There are Buffets which, although more than $20, will give all of you a wide variety of dishes.
        I prefer the one at the Borgata, but I stay there so I am more familiar with that casino.

        Izakaya at the Borgata would probably work for your group. It's a Japanese 'pub' Nice atmosphere. Cool vibe. Decent food.. Bonus: The Gypsy Bar is right across the way.

        1. We ended up at Cuba De Libra, which was okay. The prices were definitely reasonable. Will be referencing this again in a few months for the same group of girls, this time for a bachelorette!

            Consider the Continental at the Pier at Caesars for your upcoming bachelorette party. Worked out well for a similar group:
