The Mississippi Gulf Coast’s best buffet just got better with a multi-million dollar refresh just in time for the holidays. The Buffet at Beau Rivage is set to welcome guests to its newly renovated space.

“We’re thankful to be able to reopen the buffet in time for the holidays and provide an updated experience for our guests and their families,” said Beau Rivage Executive Chef Kristian Wade. “The refresh offers guests new food options, including royal reds, Cajun shrimp alfredo, deep fried Cajun catfish and other coastal cuisine, and additional live action stations including a Mongolian grill and dessert station, allowing us to serve the freshest food possible, efficiently and effectively.” 

The restaurant’s fresh contemporary design features bright patterns and a Coastal color palette that complements the original brick, tile and copper motif. Updated carpet, wood plank flooring, paint, lighting and bold wall coverings enhance the space, and the relocation of the salad station improves the room’s layout creating an open floorplan. Modern amenities have been added for guest convenience including a new ice cream station and two new self-serve beverage stations featuring 25 options.

In addition to aesthetic upgrades, the buffet will provide new food presentations including more live cooking stations and smaller portion-sized serving pans that provide attractive displays and, more importantly, better food quality. Residential size serving cookware conducts heat more efficiently to keep food hotter longer.

Guest favorites from breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner, such as in-house smoked ribs, gumbo, fried chicken and prime rib return, but diners can enjoy a variety of additions as well.

New features include a Mongolian grill, allowing guests to create customized Asian entrees, a new waffle station, and a new live action dessert station with cooked-to-order treats such as Bananas Foster and fresh beignets. These complement popular stations like create-your-own pasta, omelets made-to-order, and the expansive carving board. The brick oven station offers gourmet pizza and a variety of one-pot baked dishes. Southern favorites such as seafood gumbo, crawfish etouffee and jambalaya return to the menu, and additional healthy and vegan options are just some of the 30+ newly added selections.

Saturday nights feature a variety of seafood such as fried catfish, crab cakes, shrimp, fried oysters, oysters Rockefeller, fruits of the sea, lobster ravioli, stuffed crab and more.

In addition to a full-service bar, an upgraded wine menu offers selections by the glass or by the bottle. A special cocktail menu, including seasonal daiquiri offerings, has also been added.
