Non-smoking area is great with lots of slot machines to chose from. The deli is nearby and is also smoke free and serves tasty food. You cant beat their homemade clam chowder. They offer soup of day which is always good. The new seafood restaurant is awesome and the steak house is good. Nice atmosphere in both restaurants with friendly... More

We enjoyed our dinner very much. Lots of sea food as well as meat, veggies and dessert. I liked that they have an entrance separate from the noise and rush of the casino. Buffets are not my favorite, but it was good.

The casino was large with lots of slots and some tables. We walked through checking out the slots. Didn't find many with lower maximum bets. We only played a few. They had self serve soft drink machines. Restrooms were clean.

Food is excellent and reasonable. Buffet is a bit cold and utilitarian. Their full service restaurants have excellent food and professional service. Go late afternoon for special meals at SPECIAL prices. Read the boards by the restaurant doors to learn of day's specials.

Our group of six wanted to enjoy the seafood buffet. We ordered 5 sodas and i ordered a beer. Waitress brought the beer first then went back for the sodas. When she returned she somehow dropped the tray and spilled 4 of them. Food was dry having been out too long. While there was a large selection or choices of... More

We go there for breakfast buffet and have a little fun at the slots. Food is good and price is right. We would stay in the gaming area longer, but there is NO Non Smoking area...bad idea!

Nothing fancy, just another Casino to throw your money away... However I'm not a gambler so it makes sense that I would not really care for the place... having said that, I have not been there for several years and I'm sure they have expanded and there's more to it than there used to be
