There is dining, the casino, shows, bowling and horse racing! There are a couple of dining areas and bars. Fun place to hang out or attend a catered event.

Nice casino to attend if you have the time. It was a pleasure to go into a non-smoking casino, as opposed to the smoking casinos in the American West.

Wanted to venture out to a NY casino. We will not be returning to Empire. Trying to get to valet parking with no signs posted was a challenge. Even the security guard posted outside did not know. Once we valet parked, and went inside there were extensive lines to get a players club card. While there was a diverse selection... More

I live two blocks from Empire City Casino and love it there. We've had many dinners at the various restaurants, as well as at the Food Court. We also spent at least three New Year's Eve celebrations there. However, I never have had any luck at winning!

With video roulette and everything else video. Valet parking is $15. Drinks while playing are not free. Definitely not Vegas but cool to do nonetheless if you feel like trying your luck. There are bars and restaurants complete with bands and comedy nights on their calendar of events. Clean bathrooms.

Empire City Casino is a NYS lottery run casino, very accessible if you live within the NY metro area. Unlike Vegas, AC or Foxwoods/Mohegan Sun, it's totally smoke-free! I've been to Vegas numerous times, and yes, if you're into gambling then it's the best place to go! But traveling to a different state is going to cost you whether it's... More
