“Short trip for a good time”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Out in Sac staying with friends, decided to take an evening and hit the casino. The recommendation was Red Hawk, about an hour away. When we got there, we decided to find our individual game and meet back in 90 minutes. I headed for the poker room - on the no smoking floor, thank God. Signed in and was at a table in 10 minutes - my friend wasn't so lucky. She was called after 50 minutes - not enough time to play. She did do well at the penny slots though. We both made enough money to treat our friends to fine dinning at Henry's Steakhouse.

“Stay Away!! Far Away!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Stay away from this dump!!! you do not win at all..they give you back just a few buks but take it away just as easy...no one was winning. my friends refuse to go here any more since they take take take but never let you win. they you those stupid free gifts as if its like a major big deal,,trust me its no big deal,,,a flash light for a free gift big deal. this place sucks,,the food sucks ,,things are so spicy you cant even eat it.the mashed potatoes are the worst. its the same food at the buffet day in and day out. the slots are so tight the birds talk about the,,cheap cheap cheap. i cant understand why people still go to this place,,,i for one will not go back!!!! trust me go else where..try gold coutry casino in oeoville at least there you win. go to reno evn but not i repeat not to redhawk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Fun for a few hours”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Took bus up from Bay Area to Red Hawk. It's a well kept up property with lots of slots. Actually they are rather loose - at least when we were there. Lots of smokers but you can go downstairs to nonsmoking area. Plenty of dining options - should have gone to buffet but instead had some rather insipid Chinese food. If you take the bus up in January, it's free plus you go $20 credit for players club. Lots of parking.

“just like most of the others”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

nothing special about gambling at the red hawk - although the food is pretty good. most of the gamblers smoke and efforts to get rid of the smoke are ineffective.
