The employees here are very polite. The casino is clean, and air quality isn't too bad. One of the better buffets we've had in Midwest casinos.

The buffet was not exceptional, but for the price - unbeatable. The place was clean, the staff were all happy people and accommodating. I was there for a two day meeting and it met all expectations. the nightclub is pretty nice, too.

Went with three others and they experienced the same thing on the slot machines. Do bother going, would suggest isle in waterloo, or casino in shakopee anyday.

Don't bother coming here if you are female and you plan on having a drink or two. My girlfriends and I were forced to leave because we showed "evidence of intoxication". This is very strange considering most casinos try to get you drunk so you will spend more money. After spending our money on food at the casino's deli, we... More
