The casino is rather sad and disappointing. Dark and gloomy with not a lot of happy people about. Can think of a lot of better ways to be separated with my cash. Try the horse races, much more entertaining. Did not try the buffet, but have heard good things about it, but again, it is a buffet.

Food was excellent and an attempt had been made to slant the menu to Elvis Presleys Graceland favourite food items. This was followed by an Elvis imperonator concert, which was also excellent

We planned to visit the casino during our trip to Charlottetown as a "rainy day" activity. Well, it didn't end up raining (gotta love unpredictable island weather!) but we went anyway, and were glad that we did! We went on a Friday, which is when they have their Surf and Turf buffet.

Run of the mill Casino, nolthing special. Vacationing from Ontario, where Casino's know the value of satisfied patrons - non-alcoholic drinks are FREE. PEI, on the other hand has extremely tight machines (didn't see anyone winning) and they charg an outrageous amount for pop or coffee. Shame on you.

Had a great time going to the afternoon race card with a table upstairs for the lunch buffet. Really nice facility, staff were great with our kids, would go again anytime.

The food and atmosphere were fantastic when a group of us visited Red Shores! The big buffet offered a huge assortment of food, including lots of options for vegetarians as well as many different types of meat! The food was constantly being replaced by kitchen staff who seemed to be really on top of things, and there were many types... More

We grab a window table and tuck in our napkins. Plates piled with fresh crablegs are emptied time and time again. They lost money on us for sure. :-)
