The river is a place to enjoy good food good entertainment and a little gambling if you choose. From the valets to the waitstaff in the canopy buffet they are always very kind and helpful. I take my 91-year-old mother there and they treat her like gold. They assist with her getting in and out of the car at the... More

Casino is crowded. They do not make you feel welcome. They do not give good. Comps. We play $100.00 hands and they send us a $25.00 food comp in the mail once a month. Pit boss Robert is a real jerk. Doesn't pay attention to your play and has a bad attitude.

I've never played any of the tables, so I really wanted to try one, but I think the minimum was $25.00 on each table. I did get lucky on the slots, so I guess it wasn't that bad. It was definately crowded, but the drinks were good.

The slots are awful at Rivers Casino, tighest anywhere. The table games ie blackjack, roulette, craps, Baccarat all have astronomical limits,r egradless of time or day of the week. Drinks are over priced, even for players. It is just an overall bad experience for the player. The casino does great and so do their owners--

I am not a casino goer, but on my way through this casino to the restaurant I have to say I was impressed. This is a very clean, bright, and smoke-free Casino. I did see a smoker's Terrace sign, but there was no smell of smoke anywhere.

The design is nice and the lack of smoke in Illinois casinos is great. Fairly good selection of video poker and slot machines. Customer service is all over the place. The Players Club employees almost always act as if they would rather be somewhere else. The people at the Cashier Cage are almost always nice. People on the floor? That... More

Nothing special. Drinks $12. A couple restaurants. There is no smoking inside which is nice. Not much to say about it.

Dealers were very arrogant and condescending. They made a mistake on a craps table payout and never apologized. I was very patient and was not angry but very disappointed on how they addressed the problem. Very unprofessional.
