I've visited this Casino several times over the years and always come away disappointed. Most of the Slots are old and the place is smoky.

We have 14 casinos in our home county, been to most. All of them are beyond better than this unbelievable excuse for a casino. Unbelievable.

Was craving Prime Rib and this fit the bill. The service was fast and friendly. The Prime Rib was a huge cut of meat and cooked perfectly and a great price, Alcoholic drinks were a bit pricey.
