BILOXI, Miss - Sports fans rejoice! Biloxi is now home to the second Deuce McAllister Ole Saint Kitchen & Tap location, a restaurant concept from Ballard Brands and Ole Miss and New Orleans Saints alum Deuce McAllister. Ole Saint is family-friendly and will feature southern coastal cuisine for lunch and dinner, as well as a full-service bar with 24 craft beers on tap, many of which are local to the Gulf Coast region. Customers will also enjoy endless sports coverage on 40 flat screen TVs, as well as being able to place wagers at The Sportsbook at Boomtown, next door to Ole Saint.
The restaurant, located at 676 Bayview Avenue within Boomtown Casino Biloxi, can seat 200 people in its 3,800-square-foot restaurant space. Ole Saint is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Roughly 40 new permanent jobs have been created at Ole Saint in Biloxi.
“As a Mississippi native, graduate of Ole Miss, and retired New Orleans Saints player, I can
honestly say there are no better fans than those of the Gulf Coast region,” said Deuce McAllister. “Biloxi was the perfect place to open our second Ole Saint location. Along with Ballard Brands leadership, I’m looking forward to celebrating the grand opening and welcome all of you to our new family at Boomtown Casino.”
The original Ole Saint location is in the historic French Quarter in New Orleans, home to the Gulf Coast’s beloved black and gold Saints. Ballard Brands owners, Paul, Stephen, and Scott Ballard, saw the importance of combining a local sports legend and athlete like Deuce McAllister into the fabric of a true sports dining experience.
“Deuce McAllister has been an outstanding partner not only in the original location, but in planning for the second Ole Saint location in Biloxi,” said Peter Boylan, President of Ballard Brands. “This restaurant will feature 24 beers on tap and over 40 big screen TVs allowing you to experience your favorite sporting events while you watch, wager, and eat.”
In partnership with Boomtown Casino, Ole Saint is pleased to add new dishes to its repertoire, in addition to our customer favorites from the original menu. With the restaurant situated with views of the Back Bay of Biloxi and steps from the Gulf of Mexico, customers can enjoy fresh, delicious seafood from their own backyard. Local craft beer on tap include Port Orleans, Parish Brewing, Abita Brewing, NOLA Brewing, Biloxi Brewing, Lazy Magnolia, Southern Prohibition, Chandeleur Island Brewing, and more.
Join Deuce McAllister, Ballard Brands, and Boomtown Casino Biloxi on Tuesday, January 15, at 11 a.m. for the official grand opening of Ole Saint. Attendees will enjoy samples and hear from McAllister and leadership from Ballard Brands and Boomtown Casino.
