Margaritaville Casino Biloxi -- Closed permanently in September, 2014

Margaritaville Casino Biloxi
Margaritaville Casino is Biloxi's newest casino, and one of the newest in the world, having just opened in May 2012. In keeping with Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville brand, it was designed to be a breath of fresh air in the casino world, offering big windows that let plenty of natural light into the casino, as well as unusual tropical-style touches such as some outdoor table games. The decor, entertainment selection and staff attire also reflect a laid-back, island-hopping ethos (and of course there is a marina for casino hopping). The casino offers 19 table games and more than 800 slots, as well as a players club. There are there onsite restaurants, including the Feeding Frenzy Buffet.    

Available Gaming

Table Games: Margaritaville has 19 table games, including six-deck blackjack and double-deck blackjack, Mississippi Stud, craps, roulette and Three Card Poker. Three outdoor six-deck blackjack tables are offered at the casino's LandShark Landing marina. $3 craps are offered at select times.

Slots at Margaritaville: More than 800 slot and video poker machines with denominations starting at 1¢. Games include several Aristocrat slots, Whales of Cash, Plenty of Buffalos and other favorites. 

Players Club

The Margaritaville players club is free to join and offers a new member promotion including $10 in freeplay (slots), a free gift and up to $100 in losses back in the form of free slot pay that is subsequently e-mailed. The casino initially did not offer any free play, but apparently the model didn't sit well with enough customers, so they changed it pretty quickly. The players club offers a variety of promotions on different days, as well as occasional giveaways. Seniors can take advantage of Margaritaville Biloxi's 50+ club, which offers 1/2 off lunch buffets on weekdays.

Restaurants at Margaritaville Casino Biloxi

Feeding Frenzy Buffet

The Feeding Frenzy Buffet is Margaritaville's take on the ubiquitous casino buffet, and it's on the small side in terms of selection and seating among Biloxi casino buffets. It's also relatively reasonably priced, though: weekday breakfast for $5 ($7 without a players club card), lunch for $10 and dinner for $15. On weekends Feeding Frenzy offers a tropical brunch from 9-3 for $15 ($18 without players club card), including one free mimosa or bloody mary. The casino also has a steak and crab legs dinner buffet on Fridays and Saturdays for $19, or $22 for guests who are not members of the Margaritaville players club.  One little gimmick that may appeal to some guests is that Feeding Frenzy Buffet serves one of Jimmy Buffett's personal favority meals each day.

Margaritaville Restaurant

Well yes, since you asked, of course you can get a Cheeseburger in Paradise at Margaritaville! You can also get a variety of other sandwiches and burgers, as well as other entrees, including vegetarian and gluten-free options, and a kids menu. Margaritaville Restaurant seats 400, including balcony seats that overlook the water and marina, and it's open from 11-10 Sun-Thurs and 11-1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. In keeping with the laid-back sensibilities, the restaurant offers casual dining. Blue-plate lunch specials are offered daily for $7, and there is a happy hour from 5-7 p.m. daily with 2-for-1 well drinks and wine, as well as $2 drafts and margaritas. Maybe you can get happy hour pricing at any other time of the day if you plead that it's 5 o'clock somewhere. Probably not, though. A highlight of Margaritaville Restaurant is the $3.99 late-night breakfast offered Fridays and Saturdays from 11 p.m. - 1 a.m, which is a great time for breakfast in Biloxi.  A 10% discount is offered every day for active military and veterans (sorry, discount does not apply to alcohol). The Volcano Bar is open the same hours as the restaurant, and of course you can find a huge assortment of margaritas and other island-y drinks here, as well as the famous Volcano Girls.

LandShark Landing

Located the the Margaritaville's LandShark Landing Marina, this bar/restaurant offers tiki bar fare in a tiki bar atmosphere, including live entertainment and frozen drinks. Patrons can visit by land or can pull up their boats to the marina. The restaurant is open only on weekends, from 4-11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 4-10 on Sunday. Three outdoor blackjack tables are nearby, also open only on weekends, weather permitting.

Getting to Margaritaville Casino Biloxi

Margaritaville Biloxi is located at 160 5th Street, Biloxi, MS 39530. From I-10, take the Division St. exit and head east to Oak Street; take a right on Oak Street and then a left on 5th Street. The casino is on the left at the end of 5th St, overlooking the mouth of Biloxi's Back Bay. Parking is free and ample, though the rather elongated parking lot can make it quite a hike to the front door if the casino is crowded and you have to park at the far end. Guests can also arrive by boat and dock at the marina. Coast Transit's Casino Hopper also stops at Margaritaville Casino.
