Vernon Downs gives us a local place to go for entertainment and food. I've attended many a concert here at unbelievable prices. This summer for only $15 or less a ticket we saw Jerrod Niemann and Love & Theft. Was a fund raiser for Central Food Bank and Jerrod played for over 2 hours himself! Winter is here, so for... More

While playing slots at the gyp joint Turning Stone, a local woman recommended that this place was better. The next day we ventured here for lunch and to sample their slot selection. While the buffet was cheap, it was horrible. After lunch we sampled the slot area. Staff was friendly and machine selection was ample. This place is high above... More

Visited here in early December. The casino building is basically a boring square box. Not much thought went into its design. Although it is non smoking there are still smokers outside and you have to inhale second hand smoke upon entering. Once inside the slots payout nothing and are just as bad as turning stone. The employees here , just... More

Vernon Downs has built a whole new complex next to the race track. Hotel and casino are fantastic. Got a good price on their website and the casino was paying way better than turning stone. Also no smoking inside - Loved that.

Went to the casino while staying in the hotel, it was very small and no tables just machines. Very sad about that. Drinks were overpriced at the bad...$5 for a beer is insane even worse when it's old beer. (Boston Lager was old, tasted extremely bitter).

We stopped at Vernon Downs Casino recently and had an enjoyable time. We ate at Champions Buffet and thought that the food was very good. There was salad, soup, breads, hot entrees and a selection of wonderful desserts....something for everyone. We played the slots for a while and won a bit! Our only disappointment was that there are only slots... More

This is a small but well run casino in the Vernon Downs Hotel, which I've reviewed separately. Service was great, we made a few bucks in the slots, and it was a nice change to have live races a swift shuttle ride next door. The only thing lacking was table games which is what my husband is into, but for... More
