Nice time. Ate in a snack bar. Should have had the buffet. Pleasant people. Don't care for the smoke smell.

Went to the restaurant just inside the front door that had the best chicken and sausage gumbo, it is definitely a must have. Went to bar after for drinks, had a martini which was very yummy.

We thoroughly enjoyed our buffet lunch! For $15 pp, we had good food and an amazing view of the Mississippi River.

Food was alright. Prime rib was only served med to well hence overcooked. Piano music was really nice. Beautiful view of the river.

Easy access with ample parking. The boat is clean and has a large number of slot machines. There are ample table games. Restrooms are clean. The restaurants are very nice. Would recommend visiting.

It's an ok riverboat casino. it is a little dark in spots, but certainly could use some updating. The staff was nice, and there was plenty of parking.

This casino is in downtown Baton Rouge. We arrived on a weekday afternoon to a half-empty free parking lot. The casino encompasses three floors with lots of penny slots. (I can't tell you about the table games, as I don't play them, but most appeared...More

I was sort of excited to go to a riverboat casino. This place wasn't exciting, but was sort of sad. Besides the walk into the boat from an interior entrance, it was difficult to tell we were even on a boat. No windows, and I'm...More

No. Smoking is permitted on all 3 levels as far as I can recall, but there may be a nonsmoking area on one or more levels. I'm not sure.
