I have visited many casinos in many different towns. This is quite nice for a casino. The bars are nice and the drinks are stout. The food offerings we have tried are Hugo's Frog Bar which is one of the finest steak and seafood places in this area. And the Canopy Buffet which was really good for a buffet. There... More

I am not a big gambler but my friend enjopys it so I tag along. I noticed many people winning as I was walking around - by winning I don't mean $50 bucks - I mean the staff/security having to come and write up W2 forms becuase of the size of the payouts. Well, having about 10 minutes to spare... More

This casino presents a traveller another option besides the dining and bar hopping scene prevalent in the Rosemont Chicago O'Hare area. So very keen to take advantage of this opportunity, my friend and I visited the casino on a busy Saturday night and had a blast! Yes, the steak restaurant was over-priced and the gaming area was jam-packed with people... More

Nice casino smoke free it's rare. Friendly staff. Best advice play table games we actually won some money . If you like slots this is not the place for you tight and odds are not good. I will visit again just for table games.

Very close to our hotel. We didn't use the casino as we are not gamblers. However, the bars are very good with an excellent selection of beers etc. and wide screen TVs.

Overall it's probably 3/5 but I had to give it an extra star for the fact that my eyes weren't burning when I was gambling. Probably one of the smallest casinos I've ever been to. Very few penny slots so you'll go through your cash pretty fast when it's crowded and you can't get on these machines. We went on... More

I am not much of a gambler and cannot talk to that point. We went to see a close friend's band, Hi Infidelity, play. The sound system that Rivers Casino has installed in phenomenal. The sound is equal to that of a lot of theatres in and around Chicago and its suburbs. If you like actually being able to hear... More

I have been to many casinos; about 20 along the Vegas strip, downtown Vegas (the best by the way) 5 or 6 in Reno, The Wis. Dells, Four Winds, all the NW Indiana casinos and all the IL casinos (near Chicago) and RIVERS IS THE WORST! Here's why; It's always congested (who designed this place, give them an "F"), You...

Stopped in here with the wife over Labor Day. Parked in the garage (free) and proceeded inside to make our donation. 4 craps tables were open, two with $5.00 minimums and two with $15.00 minimums. The place isn't huge, but didn't seem too crowded on the day we visited. Jack and Coke was $7.00. We did manage to get a... More
