This is a nice casino, as far as casinos go, I don't go that often. We go every once in a while to eat dinner at the Waterfall Buffet. The food is good, and the staff are great! I'm not a gambler, but decided to try my luck on a penny slot and hit a nice $160.00 jackpot and left... More

End of our gambling weekend with friends. Had to take them to Red Hawk casino for dinner and gambling. Let me start out with our dinner. After a great steak dinner at Thunder Valley (TV) casino, we thought we would try Chinese at Red Hawk's Pearl restaurant. What a mistake. Over priced, unauthenic chinese food. Average dish costs $20; at... More

Great parking and large very nice Casino. They had a kids floor so kids were not on the gaming floor. Clean and fun to visit.

I'm not a big fan of casinos, still Red Hawk is new and attracts a lot of people. The facility is clean, the gaming equipment seems modern, but the smell of smoke on the gaming floor is lingering despite the high tech exhaust systems. The food court offers extensive choices at some bargain prices, particularly the buffet. Henry's Steakhouse offers... More

I stopped here because I was passing through and I wanted to check it out. I went to the counter to get a card. At Cache Creek, first time visitors usually get $25 to gamble plus points for food. Red Hawk gave me nothing. The smell of smoke hit from outside and it was bad inside too. The slots seemed... More

Came here for a retirement luncheon; I expected standard Casino style buffet fare, but I was pleasantly surprised! The food and selection was wonderful and delectable! The Chinese green beans was fresh and crisp; the roast beef was perfectly prepared with choice of rare to well done and tender! The Pho bar was hiding behind the dessert bar...but well worth...

Was there for New Years to eat and celebrate. Couldnt eat there because of private parties that took all the seats in the two restaurants we tried to go to. oh well, not to spoil our fun we ate at the lil cafe they had. They over cooked our meals and the manager acted as if it was my fault.... More

I was surprised to see they allow smoking indoors in California. I haven't been to a casino in years. it was awful. I didn't gamble much and can't complain on that front but it was soo smoky and crowded. We all left with our eyes stinging and wer were there maybe a couple of hours. Not coming back until they...

Hard to get into and park. Long way to the casino. Bad layout. Smokey. Couldn't find the restaurants. Everything looked dirty, but it just seemed to be the color choices. The machines do not pay. The drink station was messy and dirty. I will stop now.
