“Lots of Room for Improvement Here”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Casinos are wierd places. The power structure that holds such a place up can fall short in many areas, especially in customer service. This casino is a little smug and sure of itself and offers very little spontaneous cordiality or friendliness from the guys in middle management here. I don't think they really care about the average guest who is going to come in and gamble, tossing about 50 dollars in until it is gone. I guess the mangers are all really sure of their jobs. The food in the restaurant is sometimes very good, and you never really know when that some time is going to be. I get the feeling like a really big big monopoly and corporation is running this casino and all of the little nobodies are not very important to them.

“Poor Facility”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

We went to a comedy show and the venue has terrible seating. The seats they sold on the bottom half of the stadium looked OK, but on the second level there were chairs on a flat surace, three rows. Pack them in and sell tickets! You were not able to see the stage. I wrote a letter ad received back a form letter that told me to buy my tickets earlier to get good seat! A totally dissappointing exprience. Would never go back and would advise all our family and friends not to go either.

We had fun gambling a little bit and also taking the kids to the arcade. The arcade gives tickets so the kids can buy prizes with them.......fun games!!

“Great time had by all.”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Loved the casino. It is smaller and like that I could find my husband easy. Like the layout of the casino as well. We are planning on going back in the very near future.

“Awesome food and casino”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Didn't stay on property but loved the food in the restaurant upstairs. Make sure you make reservations for dinner in the steakhouse, and go just before the sun sets. Very awesome view next to the window. Casino is vibrant, played for hours on the poker machines. Very clean and friendly staff!
