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.

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.

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?
