We are located at 2742 North Sierra Highway (Highway 395) about two (2) miles north of the City of Bishop, California. The Paiute Palace Casino is proudly owned and operated by the Bishop Paiute Tribe. The Paiute Palace Casino was established in October of 1995; the Casino's first home was a small temporary building. In April of 1996 the current Casino opened its doors and today, with over 65% Native Americans employed, it is one of the most Native American employed casinos in the State. The Paiute Palace Casino keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter while enjoying gaming activities - the latest and greatest slot machines, blackjack and poker.

A smallish casino but at times, who knows when, you can win big here. The staff is friendly but the guy at the door looks so bored with his job that I would dump him if I ran the place. Doesn't even look at you when you enter he just sits at an elevated desk holding his head up with... More

Small, friendly, home town atmosphere, not too smokey. Didn't win a lot, but oh well, isn't what casinos are all about?

For a good meal at a good price, this is one of best places to go to in Bishop, CA. They have a good variety on the menu. Get a player's card, even if you don't gamble so you can a discount on your breakfast meal. Unfortunately there is cigarette smoke in the casino area.

A small run-down casino. Forget eating here. If you love the slots, this is the only place in Bishop.

Actually hit 4 of a kind. Lots of penny slot machines and nickel machines. Cocktail service, restaurant and lounge. Only stayed an hour. That was enough

New casino and restaurant, pleasant place. Food and service average, but the price is right. You seat yourself, noise from the casino is not too intrusive, of course they want you to hear the payouts in the casino to entice you to drop some money - nothing wrong with that!

As very committed non-smokers (but lovers of slot machines), we had to give Paiute Palace a go as we were in Bishop for the night anyway. We normally frequent Strip casinos in Vegas where the smoking is hardly an issue so it was with a little bit of trepidation that we entered PP. smoke wasn't an issue for us at... More
