Jubilee at Silver Slipper named Best Casino Buffet

19 August 2014

HANCOCK COUNTY, Mississippi -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Silver Slipper Casino’s Jubilee Buffet has been voted “Best Buffet” along the Alabama and Mississippi Gulf Coast, as announced by al.com, which conducted an informal poll inviting people to vote for the best buffet in the area. Out of 8,000 votes cast, Silver Slipper Casino’s Jubilee Buffet was one of the top three selected, receiving over 3,000 votes. Al.com columnist David Holloway then visited the top three, naming Silver Slipper Casino’s Jubilee Buffet the definite front runner and “Best Casino Buffet."

John N. Ferrucci, General Manager for Silver Slipper Casino, stated, “Since opening eight years ago, we realized that being a smaller gaming property than our competition, and our location and lack of hotel, might be a challenge and that we would need to do something that would set us apart from the competition.” Ferrucci noted that the majority of the Slipper’s guests drive from Southeast Louisiana, thus they wanted to create a comfortable atmosphere featuring great customer service and an extensive selection of cuisine that catered to them, as well as locals. “We felt that if we could get them here for the great dining experience, they would definitely feel comfortable staying to play and enjoy the entertainment,” stated Ferrucci.

The Jubilee Buffet features a made-to-order pasta station, as well as Asian, Mexican and Southern stations, each offering an extensive selection. The brisket carving station offers fork-tender smoky brisket, slow cooked, daily, in the Slipper’s very own in-house smoker. There is also a huge dessert station which includes sugar-free desserts and a made-to-order funnel cake station, a personal favorite of Holloway.

The Slipper’s dinner buffet is well known for its huge, scrumptious butterflied fried shrimp, peel-and-eat Royal Red shrimp and Snow Crab, offered every night. The buffet is rounded out with an extensive salad bar “reminiscent of a Brazilian steak house” featuring a wide variety of fresh greens, garnishes and house made dressings. Chicken and sausage gumbo is on the lunch menu with seafood gumbo offered at dinner, as well as a soup of the day.

The Jubilee Sunday buffet offers a Champagne Brunch featuring live jazz music and brunch favorites until 3:00 p.m. “It’s a party atmosphere here. Our guests love it and drive from all over for the buffet, the entertainment and the gaming. We may be smaller and harder to find, but our guests feel it’s well worth the drive and that’s what keeps them coming back,” said Ferrucci. “Once our hotel is complete, the first in Spring 2015, we’ll be a complete package and even more of a destination for our guests.”
