It was a very nice casino, didn't like that children can't eat in the buffet. We went to the Powwow there, it was very nice. I love the location, right in the hills.

I was a bit surprised about the "buffet". Watching people gorge themselves is not my thing: however, was able to have a relatively healthful meal. We were staying at the nearby resort with shuttle service, so glad casino is not part of the resort!

We were shocked by the size of this place. We gambled and did come out a little ahead. There are thousands of machines and a huge non-smoking area. We were impressed.

We were treated well. Didn't win. They had a nice package for enrolling in the players club, including a free buffet with crab legs.

An intimate and all round nice concert venue. Sound is good and seats, comfortable. Have seen big band, pop, country and rock (70's) concerts.

Come to this casino for promotions, but everytime I come the I spend a good part of my time waiting in line, like the buffet and bingo. For this reason I give it Sycuan a poor rating.

The casino was very nice, clean and well maintained. I went with my boyfriend for a date-night outing to play bingo. The staff was friendly and accommodating, although a little slow. I appreciated that they provided smoking and non-smoking areas and loved the ability to play both manually and electronically. We ended up winning $600....not a bad haul for three... More

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

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).
