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.

Stayed at the Odawa hotel and visited the casino twice during the weekend. Casino is nicely laid out with a variety of older and newer games, including Clue, Beetlejuice, Willie Wonka (original) and Batman. Payouts were typical of an isolated casino - isolated! Workers very friendly - local band playing Friday and Saturday. Ate at buffet Saturday night which is... More

The casino is very small. It does have a couple of restaurants and I believe 2 small gift shops. Sage restaurant was amazing though! We ate there 3 times and they NEVER disappointed! Loved it!!!

This is my favorite casino in Michigan. It has , by far, the best buffet of any casino I have been in. If I lived in Petosky and didn't gamble, I would still go to Odawa just for the buffet. We try to get up there several times a year.

This place is absolutely horrendous. This was not only the worst experience I've had at a casino, but the worst experience I've ever had at any place of business in my life. For starters, the place is small, stinky, and tacky. The staff we immediately met were rude and disinterested. Regardless, we stuck around for a few hours since we... More

This is your typical Indian Casino ... stopped here twice during our stay in Petoskey. The first night it was very skinky with smoke odors. The second night was a little better. Not a casino that pays out ... took our money very fast. Don't think we'll go back.
