Grand Casino Gulfport Mississippi
Grand Casino Gulfport Quick Review
Superb in every way! The flawless rooms (check out the view in our pictures below),
professional and gracious staff,
superb dining choices for practically any budget, and the casino's three floors provide
plenty of excitement and variety.
Grand Casino Gulfport Resort
Grand Casino Gulfport Location
Grand Casino Biloxi is at the west end of Biloxi's Casino Strip; so if you like to casino hop, you can take a stroll over to
Casino Magic next door, or Isle of Capri Casino two blocks away.
The resort is less than one mile east of I-110 and Beau Rivage on Beach Blvd (US-90).
Grand Casino Gulfport Property Layout
The Grand Casino is an enormous complex including two hotels, three parking garages,
a 1700 seat theater, over 40,000 square feet of convention and
meeting space, and the centerpiece: the three story casino.
The whole resort takes up both sides of the street. On the beach side,
begining at the east end and going west there is the
Island View Hotel Tower, the casino, and then the Biloxi Grand Theater. On the other side of
the street sits the Bayview Hotel tower and an additional parking garage. Two enclosed walkways above the street
make getting back and forth across the street a breeze.

Our room, on the eleventh floor in the Bayview Resort tower had a beautiful view of
Casino Row and the Gulf of Mexico. It was spacious, well appointed, and perfect in every way.

The upper floor is for non-smoking slots fun.
You'll also find the poker room, restaurants, buffet, and Grand Midway Slots here.
The large, bright main level contains the table games and slots with various bars scattered throughout.
Downstairs you will find the famous Mississippi Longbar Gambling Hall and Saloon. Part of this western or old-Mississippi themed area
has wooden floors and low ceiling, with the a fairly long bar along one wall (part of it is a snack and chili bar).

Table Games and Poker Room: Grand Casino has a large poker room in the upper level c
asino (games include
7 Card Stud, Texas Hold Em, Omaha Hi Lo Splits). The rest of the table games (80 tables) are on the main casino floor.
Games include Blackjack ($3 to $500), roulette, craps (10X odds), Midi Baccarat, Pai Gow,
Carribean Stud, 3-Card Poker, Let It Ride.
Grand Casino Gulfport Slots I loved the variety of slots here (over 2800 machines), some of which I had
not see at other properties.
Among the more notable machines were Grand Nickels Progressives, Wheel of Fortune progressives,
Pinball, The Price is Right, Jeopardy, Addams Family, Slotto, Slingo, Monopoly, 3 Stooges, $1000000 Pyramid,
The Munsters, and my favorite South Park (it's loaded with sweet bonuses).
Grand Casino also has implemented some unique ideas with their slots. For instance, in
the Grand Midway Slots area (upper level) players can earn tickets good for a variety of name brand merchandise.
Also look out for the specially marked loose slots. Tthe payout is
reportedly so high on these select machines
that you can not even use your Grand Advantage Players Club card to earn points on them.

has seafood and steaks (most entrees run $16 to $30).
Chopstix is located in lobby of the Bayview Hotel and features the award-winning
cuisine of the Atlanta restaurant by the same name. They describe it as "upscale yet relaxed".
Get your fill of contemporary Chinese cuisine (entrees around $20) as you relax to the sounds from the piano bar.
Islandview Cafe, located off the lobby of the Islandview Hotel, is for casual, affordable good eating.
The Surf and Turf dinner special we enjoyed was reminiscent of
the cheap steak and prime rib deals of the Las Vegas strip. For $8.95 we had a choice of steak, Maine lobster,
Alaskan King crab legs, or shrimp with salad bar, veggies and potatoes. For just two bucks more,
they throw in a second meat or seafood choice. There is also a full menu
including breakfast omelets, soup and salad, sandwiches ($6-8), pasta and stir fry ($10-15), seafood, steaks, etc.
Market Place Buffet on the upper casino level features prime rib, pasta, stir fry, salads, and more and more.
Lei's Steakhouse also in the
upstairs casino serves certified Angus beef, seafood, Alaskan King Crab, and other dishes for about $25 and up.
