The casino was average.

Machines are crammed in. Hard to squeeze between aisles because the chairs are almost back to back. If they were smart they'd put more machines on the 2nd level.

I visit the Grand Victoria casino quite regularly. The staff is very friendly and professional. I feel welcomed and important when I go to GVC. From the security personnel to the cage workers to the wait staff to the poker dealers everyone is warm and welcoming and makes me feel important. Because I frequent the poker room mostly the dealers... More

Food is good and they have a big selection, but the prices have drastically gone up over the last few years. On a weeknight you will spend $20.00 per person and forget trying to go on a weekend, Saturday it is $30.00 per person and Sunday is $35.00 per person. I guess they figure if you can afford to lose... More

As far as casinos go this place is pretty good. It has quite a few of the more popular games as well. The best part is that the casino is smoke free unlike all those Indian places. I have had the Buffet a couple of times and it was very good. It's also not That expensive for all the choices... More

I had been to Grand Victoria many times several years ago. It was always an unpleasant casino to be in. Claustrophobic and unattractive. The machines were always tight to me too. I decided to revisit after hearing that they remodeled. Admittedly... it *is* nicer inside now. They opened it up a bit more and the design is better. It went... More

If your gonna gamble make your prices a bit better, I can get a case for what they charge for 3 beers and a mixed drink. Food is ok nothing to write home about, nothing comes with your burgers you have to pay for fries, and they are more pricy then fudruckers and portillos.

I must admit that I went to GVC with low expectations based upon reviews submitted by others. But we found the staff friendly and helpful and the casino itself well maintained. The other patrons were good to hang with around the craps table also. We didn't fare too well financially, but found the $5 craps table a bargain compared to... More

Not only did we have a terrible, long experience at Prime, their burger joint, but no one (not the security, valet or engineering staff) knew how to operate their hybrid vehicle charging station. We wasted nearly an hour trying to charge up our hybrid car and two hours with wrong and ridiculous burger orders and horribly slow and inattentive service... More
