Pickle & Jam – A Social Eatery is the latest restaurant addition to be complete for the Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica, Mississippi. Once a food court, the 7,500 square-foot restaurant made the transition to fast, casual dining to better suit the needs of those who prefer a sit-down meal and guests on-the-go. The restaurant officially opened on December 21.

The new restaurant seats 138 and has snacks and offerings for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu has a range of selection from pancakes and breakfast sandwiches to personal pizzas, pasta, specialty burgers and sandwiches, and salads. Diners can also enjoy the restaurant’s 10 craft beers on tap. The renovated space also includes a coffee lounge.

Pickle & Jam – A Social Eatery is the final phase in Gold Strike’s food and beverage multi-million dollar transformation. The last of its kind was 2013’s Buffet Americana’s $8 million renovation, which was followed by TEN10 Wine & Whiskey’s opening. Gold Strike General Manager Melonie Johnson said the new restaurant serves the lifestyle needs of the resort’s guests, and “We value our guests, and one way to let them know that is to provide continuous resort upgrades. Whether it’s moving the M life Desk to a more convenient location, renovating hotel rooms and suites or offering fresh dining options, we want everyone who visits to feel our appreciation through the improvements made for them,” according to Gaming Today.

Pickle & Jam is open around the clock for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is offered between the hours of 6:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. complementing Gold Strike’s existing restaurants, including Atrium, Buffet Americana, Chicago Steakhouse and room service.

While Mississippi’s gaming revenues have been down in past years, performances from coastal casinos have increased the overall numbers and the most recent opening, the Scarlet Pearl in D’Iberville on December 10th, should provide another boost for the region’s economy. As conditions along the coast outweigh revenue declines along the river, November marks 2015’s seventh month that revenues increased statewide.
