New Buffet Opens at Presque Isle Downs & Casino

Erie, PA — Officials at Presque Isle Downs & Casino announced today the newly renovated Backstretch Buffet is open.

Renovations began during the last week of June which completely transformed the buffet from a cafeteria-styled buffet to a more lavish made to order buffet. The $450,000 project provides guests with an array of choices from the new Mongolian-Style Grill, Grilled meats, and a new pizza oven. The action stations allow the guests to receive their meals freshly made.

A soft opening was held last Wednesday for employees and players to provide feedback while the finishing touches were put into place.

“One of the biggest concerns that our players had was the variety and value of our buffet. The feedback we have received during our soft opening has been overwhelmingly positive and we will continue to make adjustments to provide the best buffet dining experience in our region,” stated Mike Tamburelli, Vice President and General Manager of Presque Isle Downs & Casino.

The buffet is open daily at 11am for lunch; 4:45pm for dinner. A Surf & Turf option for an additional $3.95 will be available on Friday nights beginning August 2nd and a Champagne Sunday Brunch for $16.95 will begin on Sunday, August 4th which will feature a made-to-order omelet station and fresh waffles.

“People will be pleasantly surprised by the overall ambiance and food variety since the renovation. Our goal is to keep our customers happy and continue to provide quality service. The new buffet will definitely exceed their expectations,” stated Tamburelli.
