Dark and dingy with unfriendly service, and I have never won anything there. Went in with $100.00 more than once and lost it in an hour or less on 50 cent bet, just ate my money.

Hard to believe it's right in Lynden's back yard. The food is good & the slots are fun to play. There is ample parking.

Tucked well away from main roads we found Northwoods Casino today. Slots only operation. We are not smokers and found the casino not too bad today but also noted the casino was not very busy so that helped.

A small casino with slot machines only, no poker or table games. Very friendly, quiet most of the time. Can be very crowded and noisy on nights when there is a prize draw happening. Lots of slot variety, mostly penny slots. Staff are very welcoming, friendly and attentive. Very short waits for slot attendant when required (seldom as machines all... More

This is a great casino--smaller than some others in the area, so the staff is very attentive and they make you feel like you are at 'home'. They remember their regulars, welcome them with a warm greeting, and are always happy to see familiar and new faces. They have a great buffet as well as a wonderful restaurant, Chef's. The... More

Smoking has been banned in public spaces for over 20 years where I come from. Walking into this place, my eyes and nose immediately started to burn and I couldn't get out fast enough. However, we had agreed to meet friends here to try the buffet. The buffet was cheap (low price and poor quality) and everything tasted like smoke.... More

The pizza is fabulous and the service is usually very good as well. The house salad is very good with cranberries and candied pecans and blue cheese. Generous breakfast choices all day long. Omelet is particularly very good. Can't go wrong eating here. The buffet is average, but the regular menu restaurant is very good. Go there! Cheaper, too. HA!

Great food for the cost. Typical casino, although as a non-smoker, I hated the stink in the dining area. Sad walking through to see all the smoking zombies throwing their money into machines.

Limited variety on buffet items. Certainly not the caliber of food that you would expect at a Casino. The price is a bit high for the caliber of food.
