The Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park as part of her “Do It Northwest” reports. During the visit, she caught up with Chef Dan Catanio and Ray Doering

From Chloe’s Travel Log for Southern Oregon Coast and in Northern California

The Mill Casino was the first destination on our South Coast Road Trip. Sitting right on the water in Coos Bay Oregon (which is actually a bay), The Mill Casino is housed in a building that actually used to be…you guessed it…an old lumber mill! Now owned by the Coquille Indian Tribe, the Casino is also home to several restaurants a gaming floor and some fantastic accommodations.

A feature you should be on the lookout for, that we didn’t get to talk about in our PDX TV Reports segments is how educational information and artwork from the Coquille Tribe’s culture is woven into the Casino. Dioramas depict the Tribe’s storytelling culture, and artwork in the lobby and in the rooms of the hotel are by local artists.

When we first arrived at The Mill Casino, my photographer and I were whisked up to suite 750. The hotel boasts 180 degree views of the Bay, and you have to see the bathrooms…they’re larger than my bedroom at home! After checking out the accommodations, we hit the gaming floor. The Mill Casino has 700 slot machines (Wow) Vegas-style table games, and a separate poker room! The Casino also allows drinks on the gaming floor, which is unusual here in Oregon. While the games were bright and shiny, I have to admit, I couldn’t wait to check out the restaurants! Because we found The Mill Casino on DoItNW.com, I was anticipating some pretty fantastic food…and I was right!

At The Mill Casino, you’ll find four restaurants, and a martini bar; The Saw Mill Buffet, Timbers Café, Warehouse 101, and Plank House Restaurant. Whether you’re looking for a seafood buffet or an Omelet bar in The Saw Mill Buffet, deli-style eats and finger-licking home-made pastries in Timbers Café, some first-class bar eats and entertainment in Warehouse 101, a relaxing martini with a great view at Whitecaps, or a sit down, fine dining experience in Plank House Restaurant, The Mill Casino has you covered.

One absolute must try when you visit: Chef Dan is the man at The Mill Casino (sorry couldn’t resist)! ;) He made us the most amazing Cioppino at Plank House Restaurant the bowl was overflowing with crab, clams, prawns and underneath that, a savory tomato broth that would be fantastic all by itself! Make sure you order extra garlic bread so you can sop up every last bite!

Coos Bay is also famous for amazing golfing and the Oregon Dunes, which are a huge attraction (literally). If you’ve never seen sand dunes taller than a house undulating outward as far as the eye can see, then it’s worth a drive to Coos Bay just to check these out (even better if you have some sort of ATV to take a ride out on the dunes, but they’re pretty amazing to walk on too)! Another nice thing about The Mill Casino is that they offer adventure packages that will get you a room at the casino and discounts on dining and attractions in Coos Bay!

After a four hour drive, eating amazing food, and checking out the sights, we were very glad to be staying in Coos Bay for the night. One more insider tip: the beds at The Mill Casino are some of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in!

THE MILL CASINO WELCOMES THE COUNTRY RAT PACK Tracy Lawrence, Richie McDonald and Mark Chesnutt to appear Friday, May 28

Get ready for a night of smoldering honky-tonk music as The Mill Casino • Hotel welcomes The Country Rat Pack for two performances on Friday, May 28.

This intimate acoustic, unplugged show features multiple Grammy winner Tracy Lawrence, multi-platinum recording artist Mark Chesnutt, and the former lead singer of Lonestar, Richie McDonald, each performing their own hit songs and talking about their musical careers. Tickets for the 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., Salmon Room performances are on sale now in the Ko-Kwel Gift Shop for $25 or $19.50 with a Millionaire$ Club card. This concert is for those 21 or better.

Imagine what it would be like to eavesdrop on three of the most prolific American songwriters and biggest stars in country music today. That’s the idea behind the “Country Rat Pack Tour” where the intimate, improvisational, storytelling shows of the 1960s Rat Pack are given a whole new spin as three of the nation’s most recognizable country artists perform their biggest hits and share the stories behind the songs people have heard on the radio.

Each of these three extraordinary artists bring their own experience and talents to the stage. With 14 number 1 hits, 23 top-ten singles, four platinum albums and five gold records, Mark Chesnutt is easily identified by his string of 10 ten singles including “Too Cold at Home,” “Bubba Shot The Jukebox,” “I’ll Think Of Something,” “Brother Jukebox,” “Blame It On Texas,” “Old Flames Have New Names,” “Ol’ Country,” “It Sure Is Monday,” “Almost Goodbye,” “I Just Wanted You To Know,” “Goin’ Through The Big D,” “It’s A Little Too Late,” “Gonna Get A Life,” and, “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.” Multiple Grammy winner and double-platinum recording artist Tracy Lawrence has produced numerous  #1 hits including “If The World had a Front Porch,” “Time Marches On,” “Can’t Break It To My Heart” and “Texas Tornado.”  And, for more than a dozen years, Richie McDonald was the voice and most recognizable face for the platinum-selling country group, Lonestar. As lead singer for the CMA and ACM Award-winning group, Richie’s soaring vocals propelled such classics as “Amazed,” “No News” and “I’m Already There.”
