I've been going there for years for dinners, races and food. It is a much more relaxed environment than the big noisy glitzy casiinos. Sure it's smaller, more limited than the big casinos but it also offers racing with a number of specials. Can't wait for the track to open again. And although small, there is a large variety of...

I loved the atmosphere and especially the smoke free environment! We were able to listen to a great band and also play the slots. The people that go there are always laid back and the staff is very friendly.

I went here recently and I do enjoy the atmosphere. It's not big like Turning Stone and it has a more homey setting inside. Not the noise and crowds like a big casino and that is a major plus in my opinion

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.
