Buffet is very nice. Casino is ok, would love $5 min tables, especially early in the morning. I miss some of the old school slot machines.

Real comfortable atmosphere. People here don't take your business for granted. Patient pit bosses...personable too. Food is great, bathrooms clean. Easy parking. Located in a safe neighborhood.

Been here a few times now. Nice and large room always seems to have plenty of games going. Staff seems friendly. You can call ahead to be put on waiting list. I recommend doing that. Overall a nice night out.

As far as I know there are no age restrictions in the restaurants. I did read that anyone over 2 year sold is charged full price for the buffet.
