I was there over St. Patrick's Day weekend is was crazy busy. I don't really gamble so it was mostly about people watching for me. It looked liked 99.9% of the tables and machines were full. I slipped in a 2 cent slot for 2 minutes before I lost $1.00. I might try again on a calmer night. :) I'm... More

I had never been to this casino before and I enjoyed it. We decided to have dinner there and spent a small fortune for the buffet. I would go again but would definitely find different dining options!

The Rivers Casino is near Chicago IL and close to O'Hare International Airport. On my first visit to Rivers on a weekday afternoon, I found the casino to be busy, but far from crowded. There were plenty of table games (Blackjack, Craps, etc.) with $10 minimum bets. Late night and weekend visitors will likely see mostly $25 minimums. The slot... More

I was able to sample the Grand View Buffet and the SteakHouse and while the Steakhouse was excellent, the prices there were a little bit on the high side for a Casino. You would expect because of the gaming facility, that the food would be a little more economically priced. Bar service at the SteakHouse was excellent. The Grand View... More

Rivers has a nice central bar and a clean, festive atmosphere. Nice dining selections (Hugo's, Flipt, Asian, Deli) and nice people watching.
