Foooooood: Borgata has a great mix of dining options, so you don’t have to empty your wallet or put up your mortgage just for a meal. Although you could!
Break the Bank dining:
Wolfgang Puck American Grille – As seen on TV, Wolfgang Puck is one of three Iron Chefs featured at Borgata. An equal-opportunity chef, the grille has two dining rooms: The Tavern, for casual diners, and the Main Dining room, for a more upscale experience. Each features a different menu with a different price range. By the looks of it, the upscale experience also includes healthier choices, not that there is anything wrong with a bone-in ribeye with Maytag blue cheese butter and french fries, except for maybe the calorie count. Try the homemade gnocchi. You will be back for more.
Izakaya – A modern Japanese pub is not a phrase commonly heard by casino diners, but that is exactly what you’ll find at Izakaya. A self-described “sensual atmosphere” should offer a creative experience sure to guarantee you a second date. And since the Japanese pub is moderately priced, you’ll actually be able to afford one after a long night of wining and dining. Awesome sushi and rabatayaki make it a must-try restaurant.
Bobby Flay Steak – Iron Chef Bobby Flay introduces his first steakhouse, where steaks get distinctive tasty rubs. But Flay takes the steakhouse one step further and combines it with the Lobster Bar. Offering options in both lobster and steak, Flay also brings a selection few diners will be able to enjoy: a $135 “Lobster and Shellfish Deluxe Selection.” Keep this in mind when you want to celebrate your big roulette win.
Old Homestead – Old Homestead, which started in the meatpacking district of New York City, boasts its hand-massaged kobe beef, which is trademarked. You can try the kobe beef burger for just $42 or a 48-ounce porterhouse for $92. Either way, this isn’t the eatery for the short on cash, unless you’re really, really hungry. Indulge in the seafood tower and the $18 meatball.
Seablue – Surprisinly, Seablue is the only seafood restaurant at this marina hotel. But it is probably because Seablue is all the seafood you need. Whoever said seafood wasn’t filling hasn’t heard about the two-pound Maine lobster pot pie. And renowned Chef Michael Mina maintains his reputation as one of the most innovative culinarians in the country.
Fornelleto – This cucina and wine bar has everything an Italian could ever need. Wine, wine and more wine! Chef Stephen Kalt mixes modern and classic Italian to offer fresh pasta, seafood and meats in a setting that feels like you are in a wine cellar.
Borgata Buffet – Like a lot of the other buffets in Atlantic City, Borgata offers cuisines that span any category. The only downside that comes with visiting a buffet is the likely inflated waistline from the seconds, thirds and fourths you take from the dessert station.
Bread + Butter – This is most likely to be your late-night eatery, where sandwiches are made to order and espressos are served to awaken your inner gambler.
The Metropolitan – An Oyster Bar AND a Gelato Bar? Whatever you do, don’t mix them together and your experience at The Metropolitan should be a satisfying one. Borgata’s café offers breakfast, lunch and dinner.
N.O.W. – Noodles of the World loves its signature dish: noodles. Try them Japanese, Korean, Chinese, etc., and down them with an Asian beer. It is the one place where you can sample from so many different countries … except maybe Epcot.
Roma – A cafe that has all the pizza, pasta and salads to satisfy your palate. This café boasts its quickness, so when that Wheel of Fortune slot opens you’ll have enough time to get to it before someone else does.
Sunroom – Eat at the Sunroom at The Water Club lobby and you’ll forget you aren’t in a tropical paradise. Plus, you get to enjoy food from Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, so you’ll really think you’ve found an oasis.
Cheap Eats: The Cafeteria, featuring:
Tony Luke’s - Believe it or not, Borgata has some cheap dining to choose from. And by cheap, we sure don’t mean boring. Visitors will appreciate this Philadelphia-based restaurant that will leave you with more cash to gamble at the tables and will satisfy your craving for cheesesteaks. Rocky theme not included.
Lettuce Head – So you want something healthier than ice cream, burgers and cheesesteaks? Lettuce Head will satisfy the more health-conscious diners in your group.
Ben & Jerry’s – You can’t say Borgata is nothing but fancy when you can satisfy your craving for Cherry Garcia an escalator ride away from the poker room.
Villa Pizza – If Roma is a little too much for your evening out, Villa Pizza will roll out your Italian faves for a much cheaper price.
Panda Express – A staple in small food courts, Panda Express will fill you up long enough to keep standing at the craps table all night.
Hibachi-san – Whoever said one Asian-inspired restaurant in a food court was too much was obviously indecisive. Indulge in this Japanese cuisine for a cheaper option than Izakaya.
Fatburger – Welcome to your 24/7 dining at Borgata. After spending a night fighting for a spot on the dance floor, who doesn’t need to refuel with a juicy burger made to order? Usually, late-night dining comes at a price of quality, but not at Fatburger, where toppings are king.
Shop ’til you drop: So the plane lost all your luggage and you need to replace an entire wardrobe to enjoy you’re A.C. experience? Or maybe you would just like to double the pairs of shoes you own. Either way, Borgata has you covered.
Shops: The Shoppes at The Water Club (Just Cavalli; Hugo Boss; Vintage Wine Boutique; Fixation Shoes & Accessories; Hearts On Fire; Cameo); Borgata Collections; Borgata & Co.; Whim!; Carina; Bambino; Misura; Borgata Jewels; Ciao!; Starbucks; Essentials
Party Don’t Stop:
Borgata has bars for every type: The “There’s so many people here that I’m literally dancing with six people at a time,” the “Don’t bother me unless it’s for another beer because the game is on,” or the “I’ll take the $100 bottle, I’m trying to spend less.” Wherever you choose to go, chances are you’ll be entertained.
mur.mur – Love the kind of place where you can sit down and relax and have great conversation with your friends? Well, this ain’t it. Dance toe-to-toe with other patrons to some of the hottest music in the city, in one of the hottest venues - literally, expect to sweat.
mixx – Upstairs from mur.mur, it’s easier to navigate this nightclub, unless a star like Ke$ha is performing or Jermaine Dupri is on the turntables. Either way, girls bring your comfortable heels because you won’t be able to avoid hitting the dance floor here.
Gypsy Bar – DJs not your cup of tea? Here you will get live bands rocking the stage and one of the most extensive tequila menus in the city.
B Bar – Smack in the middle of the casino floor, B Bar is a circular bar with no walls. This makes for a great spot to be seen and likely to entertain any people-watchers in your group.
Level One – The ultimate player’s lounge, only some patrons get the special privilege to visit Level One, so don’t expect to see the inside unless you’re making it rain in the casino.
Long Bar – The newest bar at Borgata is named for its … you guessed it, an extra-long bar. This place is perfect for those who don’t want a more low-key night, kicking back and maybe catching the game with some snacks.
Sunbar at the Water Club – In the new Water Club tower, this outdoor poolside deck is the perfect place to mingle. Tan by day, drink by night, or drink all day and call it a party. You can also find Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s food here.
Look your best, forget the stress:
Spa Toccare: Borgata was voted the best Casino Spa by the 2011 Readers’ Choice Award. At Spa Toccare, you can understand why when reading the list of massages, facials, baths and skin options. Men need no fear either - the spa offers a sport facial and plenty of massages to sooth aching muscles.
The spa includes: The Salon and The Barbershop. Spa Finder Magazine ranked The Barbershop as the Best Spa for Men. With waxing, shaves, mani-pedi’s, you’ll have endless options to look your best before your night out on the town when you visit the salon or barbershop. The Pump Room: Burn those calories off from dinner before you hit the lounge. Of course you could always skip the gym and go right to the dance floor.
Immersion Spa: On the 32nd and 33rd floors in the luxe Water Club, this spa offers a lap pool, fitness center, spa menu by Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian and 360-degree views of the ocean and Atlantic City.
For those about to rock, Borgata accommodates you: If it’s the best shows and concerts you’re looking for, Borgata delivers. With a more intimate venue at The Music Box (1,000 seats), the hotel also has its Borgata Event Center (3,700 seats), which together have featured DJ David Guetta to Billy Joel to Tom Petty to Robin Williams, Foo Fighters and The Who, just to name a few.
Gaming: Borgata has more than 261 table games, including more than 75 poker tables and more than 75 Blackjack tables. The casino also has more than 3,400 slot machines. Its Racebook has 100 seats, betting machines and a video wall.

Some patrons would rather wait to try the new Sex and the City and Amazing Race slots than play the older model slots at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, in Atlantic City. Declining number of slot machines in Atlantic City and other East Coast markets. One reason for the decline is that casinos are replacing older machines with newer ones but leaving more space on the casino floor. Tuesday, June,29, 2010 ( Press of Atlantic City / Danny Drake)
