We’ve been back to Aliante several times since our first visit. The buffet has improved – practice hasn’t made it perfect (yet) but everything is the temperature it should be and choices are adequate. We’ve also had good breakfasts at Original Pancake House. MRKT (their steakhouse) has a nice atmosphere plus good food and service. I wasn’t impressed by PIPS Cucina but my less fussy husband enjoyed it.
The staff doesn’t seem quite as thrilled to be there as they were when the casino first opened but they’re still pleasant and friendly. As expected, a bingo parlor will open soon (and I’m sure they’ll have senior specials). The movie theater is comfortable (with good buttered popcorn).
All in all, it’s a nice, relaxed neighborhood atmosphere, still playing my music (at a more tolerable volume or maybe bigger crowds and less sensitivity on my part just make it seem better).
