Went with friends to the sports bar and bowling alley at Black Oak Casino. The Mill is the name of the sports bar. We had a good time and the food was pretty good. On Saturday evening they do cosmic bowling, which is always a hit with the kids. The cigarette smoke from the casino tends to drift down the... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night during a Newmarket Golden West tour of the USA and were left a tad disappointed. Yes the rooms are big and comfy but the décor could do with updating (walls appear to have been painted over with no repair to bad plaster). It is in a fairly remote location and it is... More

We played the free "come-on" money and had a good time on the slots. We even got to keep some cash we won along the way. Our second night they had a free "concert" in their small theater in the back of the casino. The country/bluegrass singer turned out to be very enjoyable we stayed till the end of the... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant and this we were the guests of close friends. The restaurant is well appointed and has good ambience. The waitstaff have been trained, almost to the point that they seem to be following a script and they do not seem to be comfortable or natural. They are however, pleasant in a sort... More

A nice pitstop on the way to Yosemite. Who knew a sports bar in a bowling alley in the basement of a casino near Sonora would have great fish tacos ? I found the casino staff and patrons friendly. The room was good.

What a nice surprise! I usually do not like to stay at casinos, however, this was an exception. The casino is detached from the hotel. Very easy to get in and out of. The hotel lobby is very spacious and welcoming. They staff could not be more accommodating. The room with king size bed was the size of a suite.... More

Our two day and one night stay was so very comfortable. Hotel rooms were very clean and bed comfortable. The Three Sisters restaurant on third floor dinner served us with 4 star meals and excellent service. The bowling alley and lounge on lower floor helped pass our time in between gambling sessions. The outdoor surroundings are very well maintained. Employees... More

My wife lost our allocated slot money in about 30 minutes although my brother got a good machine that had good play for about an hour and he walked away with more than he started with. We ate dinner at the Black Oak Café and the food and service were excellent.

Friday night around dinner time, they only had about 4 blackjack tables open with another 2 Spanish 21 tables. Players at the only open table were staying when they were supposed to hit and vice versa. My friend got a free $25 in free play for yhe slots and ended up winning $60 from the free play only. Casino is... More
