We visit this casino on our annual trip to Minnesota. It's very clean and has a nice atmosphere. We usually don't win any money but it's a fun place to go and have fun.

Stopped in for a few hours on Thursday night for Cajun fest. Enjoyed the sampling of "non-usual" Minnesota music. Great performers and a good chance to taste Cajun cuisine.

The restaurant in the casino is exceptionally good and is appropriate for couples and family groups. We had salmon steaks that were as good as any that we have ever had on the West Coast. The presentation, the sides, the seasoning were all beyond what...More

I'm not really much of a casino person, so it took me a while to figure out what to do again. (My last trip had been 3 years prior.) Being that I have only been to about five casinos my entire life, I would guess...More

Northern Lights Casino is a nice casino with a good variety of gaming. If I was writing the review based on this alone, I'd give 5 stars. Unfortunately the staff were helpful but didn't seem thrilled to be there, and the buffet food was not...More

We live in the local area and would like to eat at the casino buffet once in a while but every time we try the food is awful. Chicken always seems like it was yesterday's or older! Salad bar wilted and mushy items. Steak night...More
