Crowded, smoke filled and tough to park. Average slot machine games, often changing restaurant and plenty of unsavory characters.

It's a fun place. They also have bands on the weekends so you can hang out and dance with your sweetie.

I think Empire City Casino is a fun place to visit with more than several activities to keep you busy on the weekend. They have great bands on both Friday and Saturday evenings on the main stage. Several bars who offer happy hour and one on the second floor with a DJ and one lane bowling alley. There is also... More

The title of this review is the easiest way I can describe this place. First off, this is NOT A CASINO. If you're idea of gambling is looking at an electronic screen than you and my xbox playing nephew have alot in common. There's absolutely nothing "fun" about this place. The constant electronic sounds trying to pull you in and... More

First understand that this is a SLOT casino. Its clean and fun. Constant influx of new games. Also in the evening Free bowling upstairs. Fun concert in summer. Live harness racing. A little something for all. Try PINCH restaurant. Self serve beer taps at table. Filler up!

...more like a video arcade. If you like slots, it will work. The traditional table games are a joke, not at all like a real casino experience and no way to know how much the machines are playing fair or not. The service is horrendous, the restaurants are terrible, and the clientele is rough. Go the extra 1.5 hours to... More

i do not like the fact of no real table games....games are electronic...no fun or authenticity with that....only been there very few times and find the vibe a little depressing although the bar/muisc scene at times can be very lively
