The Good: Food at Fairbanks - Bands on the weekends - Security - Some of the Blackjack dealers - Machine Attendants - Cleanliness - Free Valet parking with a Marquee card. The Bad - Buffet Food - Some of the Blackjack dealers - Both smoking areas are filthy. The Ugly - Drink pricing. $4.50 - $5.00 Bottled Beers. Really?

Just dropped in for a quick visit while waiting for an event to start. Very clean for a casino, and best of all NO SMOKING!!! I didn't win anything, but what else is new.
