Be prepared that this is a smoking casino. The machines and tables are tight since I saw no one winning or even happy while they were playing. I asked the pit boss at 5:30 pm if a craps table could open and he said MAYBE 6pm. Really? I guess he is not concerned about customer service. Casino is small and... More

We only went for lunch only and did not gamble or see a show. Decent food and good service, but smoky with bad "music"--casino area was annoyingly loud. We went on a Tuesday special $9.99 price. It was fun for a while, but the smoke smell was a major deterrent. We could not get it out of clothes and system... More

Spent many hours here during a short vacation get-away. Staff was great. Payouts were quick. Although no Big wins, small wins kept us playing for hours !!

My daughter took me and the famlies here for Mother's Day brunch and it was the best brunch I ever had. They also gave out carnations to all the mom's and the staff was awesome and very helpful.

Went twice I two days. You win some you lose some, but it's no ice to hear people winning. Everyone was very nice. The buffet wasn't great and we had to wait for plates, but really st the end of the day who cares. We ate food and lost money it was fun. It's a casino.

First I would like to start by saying this is one of my husband and I's favorite places to go. Their hotel is by far one of the nicest when it comes to casino related. Kewadin Casinos on the other hand are TERRIBLE. That in itself is an entirely other review. We take time every month to get away either... More

There are enough games to play where it doesn't break the bank and the food at the buffet was great for lunch. And if you are in Petoskey during the winter months, this is a very good place to spend an hour or so.

I enjoy going to casinos, and Odawa in Petoskey is no exception. The only drawback is the smoke - perhaps more folks in that area smoke, or maybe the air filtration system at the casino is lacking, but I usually walk out of there smelling like I have smoked an entire carton of cigarettes. The casino overall is clean and... More

Every time we are in the area we spend a little time at the Odawa Casino. The Sage restaurant is lovely. Music from the grand piano plays during dinner. We love the round table near the wine tower.
