Grand Buffet @ Grand Casino Hinckley

A significant part of the Grand Casino Hinckley renovation concentrates on the rejuvenation of the food and beverage venues, which can have the biggest impact on the guest experience. Grand Buffet is a 424-seat culinary marketplace that provides guests with a customized food experience as they stroll through individually-themed destinations. Stations include the beautiful glass tile-accented Sweet Spot for gourmet coffees and desserts; Asada Taco bar with a brightly colored, Mexican-inspired mural exterior; and Board and Bowl for fresh meat cuts and sandwiches. Grand Buffet emulates home cooking with a traditional tin ceiling above, and nearby Switches has a rotating counter-service menu featuring picnic table-inspired floor tile. The marketplace allows guests to have a full meal from a single kitchen or select a variety of à la carte items.
