The casino here is huge. There are a lot of machines and tables to choose from. They do offer a non-smoking gambling section, but it's not very big and the smell really goes throughout the whole casino. Additionally, the casino itself is very plain inside. It lacks any flair. There are several parking lots available and it's easily accessible from... More

This is a fun casino. The bar has good bands that play and good food! Have won a little bit of money but not a lot. There is usually room to move around and they have horse racing also sun. thru thurs.

This casino is fairly easy to find your way around in; but they could use better signage for the slot machines so you know which areas you are in - from least expensive to most. I would have liked a few less computerized screen slots as well. Still, it's a fun time for gambling. Wasn't there for the horse racing... More

Good selection of games, although sometimes they can be tight. Buffet is excellent - definitely worth the visit. Just wish they would clearly define what is smoking/no smoking in casino as it filters throughout.

We were staying close by and popped in to see what it was like. Smoking is allowed so you will have that smell. They had plenty of slots which is the only thing we looked at. The track was interesting and we would have stayed if we didn't have other plans. There's a nice covered outdoor area to sit and... More

Buffet items were good and the gaming floor is the same as any other none Vegas isolated establishment. Table games are packed pretty tight and the place smelled of smoke even with designated smoking areas. A couple hours in here and your done.

If you had asked me a year ago I would have been full of praise for the place. Ever since the new management took over-- Yuck!! Focus is on reducing the need for service and attempting to get more 'high limit' players. Come on this is Erie, not that many rich people around here. Tables used to be 5.00 with... More

A very clean, staff friendly casino. Consists of live horse racing, slots, and table games. A gourmet style steak house restaurant on main floor. A delicious buffet every day of the week at the Backstreet Buffet, including a late night buffet. Upstairs is a nice club house restaurant which also has delicious, reasonably priced food and live bands on weekends.... More
