We don't gamble at the casino. Remodeled within last 18 months, very nice. We enjoy the very large Sports Bar & grill. Have had drinks only and about 1 month enjoyed a meal. Good food and service. The theater is a great venue to enjoy entertainment, concerts and plays. Have not ate at other restaurants but the steal and crab... More

Most crowded and tightest slotted casino I have ever seen. Air quality was terrible and honestly it was tough to find a machine. Granted it was Friday night, but still. Also, not partial to a casino that doesn't serve drinks on the gambling floor.

This is a very nice casino, clean, friendly staff and a lot of slots, table games and bingo. What stood out the most to me was the cigarette smell that hits you as you enter from the parking garage which had me thinking that I would have to put up with that smell, well I was so happy to find...

The Casino is very nice since you enter, the place is big and has a resort with a golf course. The smoking and non smoking areas are well delimited. The buffet is very good (but its a little slow on the lines).

If you are active duty or retired, you are automatically upgraded to a better rewards level. You'll have to look up all the perks because I don't go often enough to remember everything but I know my points don't expire which is good considering I live about 2,000 miles away. They have some great interactive gaming. I haven't won as... More

On our recent trip to San Diego, my husband and I decided to visit Sycuan Casino as it looked the closest to our hotel. What a pleasant experience .. starting with valet. We thoroughly enjoyed the slots (of course, I won) and the buffet. The staff was the friendliest I've seen in a casino in a long time and the... More

I was rather surprised to find this place serves alcohol on its premises, there is a nice sports bar that you can get drinks and watch any sporting event. Alongwith barona and sycuan are the main ones I frequent due to their card craps game since its very close to las vegas style craps. The casino offers similar games to... More

We visit Sycuan every once in a while. It is the closest local casino and has great food and gaming. The buffett is very good. The sports bar and grill is great, and the restaurant is also good, so you can't lose with the food. They have a great selection of slots and also have table games. It is always... More
