Buffet meals have improved significantly as food choices are more flavorful and beef cooked to medium rare as opposed to being dry and overlooked. Salads could be improved but the other main course dishes are good, especially the Asian meals. Great table service. Be sure...More

Chances of winning here are extremely slim. No free drink stations like most casinos. They do have a few cocktail waitresses but there are times you don’t see one for hours.

It’s so bad, employees have to sign a cancer waiver from smoke to work there. I have gotten sick at every poker tournament I played. Never going back. I wished stones had more WSOP or wpt.

I’m unsure of this. I’d call the location. It’s on a very large lot, and may have RV lot on the backside of the property.

There are no Famous Celebrities like during the summer or fall. I am sure that they will have a great band on Friday night and Saturday night. As of right now they don't have anything posted.

Not really sure about service from the Bay Area .I know they run shuttles local areas. I would nothing that far. Only way to know would be to give them a call. Great place to game.
