Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mount Pleasant is embracing a new “food district” concept. The casino is replacing its in-house buffet with a food court opening mid-December. Restaurants sharing the space include Guy Fieri’s Chicken Guy!, Ike’s Love & Sandwiches, Bubbakoo’s Burritos, and Bonanno’s New York Pizza Kitchen. Ruth’s Chris Steak House also recently opened on the property and Soaring Eagle’s own former steakhouse is now Siniikaung Bistro.
With about 70,000 square feet of meeting space and 516 rooms, Soaring Eagle is attractive for conventions and meetings. “We’re listening to our guests and what they want to see here on our property,” says Melinda Coffin, CEO of Soaring Eagle Gaming. “If, in a van full of people, someone wants a piece of pizza [while others want] steak, gambling, [or] swimming—we want to offer something for everybody.”
