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.

No complimentary drinks while you gamble, but they didn't really over charge for them either. Never have much "luck" at these casinos and that remains true after visiting Odawa. It is nice and modern. Johnny Lang was performing there the weekend we went. Dealers were generally nice. Bartenders were great. It is what it is. Only take the money you... More

"EXCELLENT" food...staff and atmosphere...a little pricey but well worth the cost if you are looking for "PRIME" beef and the best seafood I have been served.

First of all, we had an excellent meal at the Sage a couple of weeks ago and made a special trip to dine there again. Called and asked the hours and looked online. Advertised open till 10:00. We arrived at restaurant at 8:45 and was told that they were closed. This was on a Friday night also. So after driving... More
