Went on my birthday, did get a happy birthday from the gal while getting my player's card, but no extra perks for being there. Been to several casinos that help you celebrate your birthday, some give a water bottle, or coffee cup or extra money on your players card, not here. At least we were there on a Wednesday, which...

Fun place for my husband and I to visit. The food is great at all of the restaurants. We don't gamble much. But come here with family from time to time.

We went to the Thunder Valley Cafe for the Easter Special meal deal. It was really wonderful too. For $24.99 they offered choices. A starter of either soup of a salad. 3 of us got the salad with strawberries and it was good. The soup was good too. Next was the main choice: Lamb chops, Halibut or Prime rib. 2... More

My personal observation, Thunder Valley Casino is great for its distance from where I live; however if I were to compare it with RED HAWK CASINO, I will take Red Hawk in spite of its very far distance from my home because of the cleanliness of the place...even the air inside the casino is fresher than in Thunder Valley. Perhaps,... More

I love going to this casino. The renovated rooms are beautiful. We enjoyed our stay and we'll be going back very soon. Slots could be a little looser.

We won't be dining there again. The food is not good at the Buffet or the Cafe. The staff at the Buffet do not have a handle on the way to deal with rowdy patrons and the food is not good. Sorry.

My husband and I have been coming to Thunder Valley Casino for a couple of years now. Their are several reasons why we keep coming back but the #1 reason is due to Alfred Lee, our host. He has and is the only host we have met that does an awesome job by reaching out and keeping us updated and... More

Thunder Valley is home to "High Steaks" and "Red Lantern". High Steaks is the best American Cuisine in this area. The "happy hour" is the best around for food and lowest prices on drinks. The service and the food is excellent. If you prefer Chinese food, then Red Lantern would be your choice. The gaming area is always very clean... More
