My fiance' and I decided to stop in and check the casino out after our stop to the rocksino. The parking has been improved in this down neighborhood. We walked up the steps to the entrance. Although they had roses on the outside it didn't feel inviting. We worked our way in and went to get our new players card. It took a bit and it was not that busy. We took a quick walk around to see the layout and peek at the restaurants. We did not see many people in them. The isles in between the machines are large. It gives it a more open feel. We did not check out any of the horse racing. The atmosphere was kind of in so what. Only one worker greeted us and most of the patrons seemed out of it and quiet. We played a few games and hit very small bonuses on a machine. Parking is better than downtown Cleveland. The rocksino has a better atmosphere to me. It is a change of place. Maybe their entertainment at night picks up.

Ate the ribs at Millcreek Grille on recommendation of waitress 'so tender they meltin your mouth". They were more like shoe leather. Worst ribs ever! This is the first bad meal I've had here. We eat here every couple weeks. The clam chowder is to die for. The flatbreads, burgers and Friday night the Prime rib are all very good. Stay away from the ribs though.

Went there on Derby day. Awesome experience. Crowd was good. Parking was great with the new enclosed parking area. Well kept, clean. Slots were good. watch races inside or outside.

Was only here a couple hours. Had a very nice time. Did not win but it is normal in any casino. They have a smoking patio with slot machines.

Only problem was were had trouble finding slot machines we were used to playing at other places.

This place claims to be the loosest VLT's in town. What a joke man, I have been here many many times and this place sucks man. I have never won here, the best I have done the 20 times or so I have been here is almost break even. Sad, very sad that places like this have to be so greedy, it has nothing to do with luck. It has to do with greed, you need to fix your tight slots idiots.
