We stopped here to kill some time before our hotel check in time. The bad news: if you're a nonsmoker, this place is really smoky. The good news: the lower level is non smoking. The selection of games is limited in the nonsmoking area but I will take that over having smoke blown in my face. There are some good... More

If you want to gamble and have fun this Casino is NOT the place . Their machines are the tightest in California . Also don't believe anything a manager has to say . My wife and I have been promised around 3 buffets which we have never seen . They said we would have them on our players cards but... More

Worst experience I have ever had in a casino. Me and 2 friends took the free bus to the casino at 7am sunday morning. The bus was to depart at 330pm. No machine payed out and combined we lost about 600 dollars. We were happy to leave but didn't get outside until 332pm. To our amazement our bus had already... More

Some of the waiters are worth to give five star, however, the person (female, she short and Asian, look like Hmong or mien nationality, long black hair, wear purple tshirt sometimes) behind the baccarat table is very RUDE, unfriendly, and always nasty when we ask for the check. This casino have been known as "best casino" but not live up... More

Maybe I'm too smoke sensitive, but the smoke level is THICK. We travel to Las Vegas 3-4 times a year and apparently Vegas has a much better handle on easing the smoke level. That being said the gaming aspect of Red Hawk is fun and the dining options are very good. If you're looking for a local casino the location... More

Our luck lately has been better at Red Hawk than at Thunder Valley and Jackson Rancheria, and we enjoy the gifts when they don't require you to play even more than you would normally do. However, the Rewards folks can use a lot of customer service training. Except for Kam and Josephine, who are fantastic, and their boss Jim, the... More

When this casino 1st opened it was a very nice place to visit, clean and you could win something to at least make you feel like you would return to play again. The casino needs to revamp it's circulation system as it is very smoky. You smell awful when you leave and get into your car. We tried the Buffet... More

My first trip to Red Hawk at least taught me to never go back. I lost 3 grand in the high limit area in a hour playing video poker. I couldn't even get a full house. Also the worst ventilation system I've ever been in. Whole place smelled like one big ash tray and very smokey/

Easy access and great shuttle access. The table games are only in the smoking area and the table minimums too high for the location.

This casino rivals many Las Vegas casinos and is located in a beautiful, scenic area in Northern California. It has its own exit from the highway, good parking, is clean, and has several restaurants choices. For those not wanting to be in a smoke filled environment, the entire lower level of the casino is non-smoking.
