This is the most hidden gem for a casino I know. The Tropical Gardens Buffet has gone through many permutations. The latest incarnation is by far the best deal for $14.99 you can get anywhere in the Tri-County area. Even if you don't go for the gambling and/or racing you can definitely enjoy the buffet. You will get a $2... More

I will be visiting Calder Casino every time I'm in that location, especially for the buffet dinner service. Very good price, variety of foods to choose from, friendly staff. Overall great place to dine with family and friends. Then enjoy your evening having fun in the casino.

This place is easy to get to if you live in Broward or Miami as it is right next to the stadium that the Dolphins play at(I have no idea what they call that stadium now). Plenty of parking with valet available for under $10. Place is well ventilated and it's an extra bonus that it's entirely non smoking. Slots... More

They do have free Coke dispensers. And it's non-smoking. That's it. It is a hard place to get to on buses, a 45 minute ride from Aventura Mall. The only blackjack is the video machine type. They are set to take your money. Very little food available. The staff were friendly though. I won't ever go back.

When visiting South Florida, make sure to include time to visit Calder Casino and Race Course just north of Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens. A totally smoke free and clean indoor casino with a great staff is truly a wonderful experience. Do everything you can to leave time to enjoy the food and fabulous service at the Tropical Gardens...

Your web site shows a lady exclaiming she thought this was Las Vegas. She undoubtably has never been to Las. Vegas. This place is seedy, haunted looking and a casino , if you call it that, a place to definitely avoid. With 4 other casinos nearby there is absolutely no reason to come to this place. The very first thing... More

I have been a slot fanatic for 20 years now after growing up close to Atlantic City. I've been in South Florida for 11 years. A few years ago, slots did pay out consistently. You didn't always win, but playing a few hours with 50 bucks was fun and worth it. This past year, the slot payouts have become so... More
