“Unexpectedly great time!”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We planned to visit the casino during our trip to Charlottetown as a "rainy day" activity. Well, it didn't end up raining (gotta love unpredictable island weather!) but we went anyway, and were glad that we did! We went on a Friday, which is when they have their Surf and Turf buffet. It was DELICIOUS!!! We made a reservation but it probably wasn't needed (there was no horse race - they are only held on Thursdays and Fridays - so not as busy). The variety and quality of the food was superb, and the service was extremely friendly.

We visited the casino afterwards. It's small (and I say that as someone has only been to one or two other casinos) but fun. We spent some time on the slot machines and had some drinks (very friendly service at the bar!) Didn't come out on top but the buffet and the friendly staff was definitely worth it! Just a 5 minute cab ride to downtown, where we went after we left the casino.

We would certainly visit again, simply for the Surf and Turf buffet!!

Run of the mill Casino, nolthing special. Vacationing from Ontario, where Casino's know the value of satisfied patrons - non-alcoholic drinks are FREE. PEI, on the other hand has extremely tight machines (didn't see anyone winning) and they charg an outrageous amount for pop or coffee. Shame on you.

“Tasty Buffet & Free Slot Machine Cash!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

The food and atmosphere were fantastic when a group of us visited Red Shores!

The big buffet offered a huge assortment of food, including lots of options for vegetarians as well as many different types of meat! The food was constantly being replaced by kitchen staff who seemed to be really on top of things, and there were many types of fruit and other desserts also available. The wait staff was also great as they were very prompt with drinks etc.

We also received a free voucher for $5.00 to use in the casino, where there were a variety of slots ranging in price from $0.01 - $2.00 - turned out great as I ended up winning enough to pay for my meal with some left over! The casino is small, but offers a good selection.
