There are 10 onsite dining and drink options, including family-friendly eateries like Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville and Gallagher’s Burger Bar.

The room we had in the Rendezvous Tower was very big, clean and a good location. The check in staff was very helpful. We saw a show, Johnny Mazz, which was a true delight! We would stay at this casino again.
First I want to say that this is based on my staying in this one specific room. I cannot speak for the others. Took advantage of a mid-week off season special to stay at Resorts (usually stay at a neighboring hotel) but as we gamble and eat, etc at Resorts as much as anywhere else we decided to stay here.
This one room (Ocean Tower #846) seems like it may have originally been a small conference room or office or such and has been turned into a guest room. Advantage: an amazing amount of square footage (more than a normal room and rivaling a suite). Disadvantages: The main door is a double door that is lighter and does not seal as well as a standard door, connector doors on both sides, smaller bathroom than average, and looks like it was done in a hurry.
The Ocean Tower is probably the older and less fancy of the two and shows it.
All that being said - the room was clean, extremely spacious, the sofa was a pleasant surprise (expected only a chair), the bed and pillows were comfortable, the staff pleasant, etc.
The Quick Bites Food Court in the casino is a tremendous plus over individual restaurants (those are available as well) and is centrally located to the casino, hotel towers, etc. and is extremely convenient if you just want a quick meal either to eat there or take to your room.
All in all we will not hesitate to stay at the Resorts again.
