I guess I am down on casinos in general but I was disappointed by this one. I noticed a stale smell of smoke as soon as I walked in the door and as I walked around I noticed how small this place was. I was here on a weekday and the atmosphere wasn't good but I did not enjoy myself.... More

We stayed at the Hampton, near the casino. Front desk called the casino, for shuttle service. Faster than any cab I've ever ordered! Nice friendly drivers, and it's complimentary! Of course you should always leave a tip! We enjoyed the casino, very clean, and not overly crowded. Didn't eat at any of the restaurants. We were up the first night... More

This is an average Michigan casino. People were friendly and money flows easily! We did win though! The restaurant was buffet style but $20.00 per person.

We were on a motorcycle trip with a group and stopped here for the lunch buffet. It was expensive and just plain ordinary.

What mistake for a business dinner. We paid 5 star pricing for a 2 star meal. You are much better going to a tried and true local entrepreneur, like a Stafford's property or any other fine locally owned restaurants in the beautiful Petoskey area. I cannot see ever coming back to this restaurant.

OK buffet for breakfast or lunch. Dinner is a bit pricey for the offerings, but still good The gaming is lame, at best. The staff is excellent and the "stop in on your way through" is what this place does best. The eastern UP casinos and Turtle Creek offer lodging at the Casino--which is the only way to go when...

Odawa is a nice casino with a lot of slots and all of the various table games. The downside of course is all of the smokers, typical of casinos. Slot odds do not seem great, bout we have had some success there on occasion.
