We visited the casino on Saturday, Jan. 24th. It has been many many years since we've been here, and we were surprised at how much it has changed, all for the better. There were many more slots to choose from, there are now table games, and there is a poker room. The beers were very reasonable, and the service while... More

After a few years of Driving to Seneca Niagara for a 2 night get-a-way, and the Casino becoming less consumer friendly (our opinion). I was convinced on our way back from Seneca Niagara to try Presque Isle. What a pleasure from the moment we walked in to the time we left everyone was pleasant and accommodating. I only wish we...

At Presque Isle casino when entering, go to the door by the racetrack, to the non-smoking area and avoid being hit by the smoke! My husband and I are both smokers and that is one of the main reasons we have no desire to go to any of the casinos in Ohio,although we live in Ohio.We go out to enjoy... More

Great place to have a day trip or overnight trip. Every time I walk in I'm greeted by security. They just remodeled the place so when you hear that it's dirty it's not true at all. I'm not the biggest fan of the snack bar but it will do for a quick bite to eat late at night. The slots... More

Smokers in non-smoking area and unable to get to the non-smoking section without going thru the smoking section. The buffet needs a better selection of main courses and had a very poor selection of deserts. Having a hotel within the casino would be most welcome.

if you are a table game player this place has favorable odds with experienced dealers. 10 times odds on craps with a fire bet. They do not allow put bets and the fire bet is max $1. There is no more smoke than any other casino I have been to.

Need to moving non-smoking. You have to go through smoking to get to non-smoking area. Liked the DJ party for New Years.

My sons and I went to the casino just last Monday (8th Dec) and we played slots. Won $11 and that was it. New machine "Better Off Ed" was fun, very low payouts. It was pretty empty and it was at noon. I don't think I will come back for some time. People were nice there. Didn't eat there. Loosen... More
