Love to enjoy the various dance bands that they have here on Friday and Saturday nights. The music is usually pretty good, there is no cover charge, and the atmosphere is always fun. And you can always find some good food at any of their dining choices.

Casinos on the top level. Bowling, restaurants, and a kid friendly arcade. The prizes are amazing and the games are really fun.

Nice Casino with a very large non-smoking section. Most games available with usual payouts. I actually like the bowling alley. New hotel looks nice and would be a good place to stay for a weekend to visit the Sonora sites and surrounding area. For golfers, there are three very nice golf courses nearby. I played Mountain Ranch. Not a hard... More

To break up the trip from the Eastern Sierras back to the San Francisco Bay Area, we have sometimes stopped here for an hour or two to have something to eat and "try our luck". Its a large casino with a variety of slots and table games. There is also an entertainment hall with concerts, etc.

A group of 4-6 of us has been coming to the Black Oak Casino primarily for their Saturday night buffet...or for the less hungry something off the menu. Both have taken a turn for the worse!!! No More Turkey in the buffet! The fish is fried, so its beef...beef or crab legs. The prime rib can be OK but also... More

This was a pleasant casino, well decorated and clean. We liked it better than the Jackson Rancheria. The valet parking was a bit of a wait however...staffing problems on a Friday night?

Kids got to swim, grandparents got to play the slots (and win!) Nice staff, large smoke free gambling area for those of us who gasp in smoking environments.

We were staying nearby and decided to stop at the casino for awhile. We joined the slot club and got signed up for a slot tournament where my wife finished 2nd. Needless to say we went home well ahead. If we are in the area again, this casino will be on our "must stop at" list. The staff that we... More
