This casino has an amazing location, right across from the ocean. It has blackjack tables and a lot of slot machines. There is also a fun bar area with really cheap drinks. I enjoy the live music and fun atmosphere of this casino. THe sunset grill has a nice view also.

On our visit to the casino (a Thursday afternoon), we found the place to a very empty cavernous casino. At first, we didn't see anyone inside. However, we did find a few people playing slots way in the back. The lounge was completely empty. They had a deli for food, but the selections were pitiful.

Must be too old for the modern equipment. Still like to pull the arm of the slot machines. The money cards were difficult to figure out.

Attractive smaller casino. We stumbled on it trying to find a beach in the fog and went in for a half hour. Actually won a little $$!

We sought out this restaurant, although a little farther than others from our Arcata, CA hotel, for the location/views. It was a very nice dining room surrounded with windows with a big fireplace in the center of the room. The dinner was excellent and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, it wasn't long till the fog rolled in (as it does there) so... More

Ok for a casino, but if you want a good meal, go to the Sunset Restaurant and Bar. Great fresh fish and bar. Great for a date or a large group. Wonderful view. Inexpensive.

Love this little casino! First night there, we put our ten dollar welcome chips into a machine and won $170. Second night we left $9 up, and third night we went home with $60. Fun!!

Actually, we had no intention of going to a casino, but couldn't get in other romantic restaurants on Valentines weekend. They try very hard to keep the smoke out from the other parts of the casino. The surprise is that there is this huge, well-attended casino, near a sleepy little town of 300, hidden in the woods. Food was good,... More

Great place to see a show-not fancy but you are always close to the stage. Some decent acts come through.
