If you like casinos, you'll probably like this one. However, don't expect to win. Like all casinos, the odds are against it. It's OK if you go there for entertainment value. It took my wife about 3 minutes to lose $20 at the penny slot machines. Yeah, that's right. THREE MINUTES. Lots of parking. Some of the local hotels and... More

The casino was very clean and the payouts are okay. Our biggest complaint this trip was that the cocktail waitresses were no where to be found. We would have to leave our machines to go to the bar and hope that no one took our spots while we were away. This is hard to understand when one would think tips... More

Nice casino and racetrack right out of city center in Erie PA. Casino nice and restaurants good. Many promotion and various entertainment. Casino seems to cater to patroning players which seems nice. Steakhouse in casino excellent and lively crowd.

We went to Presque Isle on July 21st. This was our second trip here and I’m not sure we’ll be returning soon. They do have the benefit of having the Baymont Hotel across the street now with a shuttle, which was a nice improvement over last time. However, the casino operation itself is “iffy”. Upon arrival I tried to get... More

Very hard to even walk into the Casino because the smell of smoke hits you. We found the Clubhouse Restaurant upstairs. On the website it says it is all full up no matter what time or day you try to book. At 4:30 pm during the week it was empty. My husband had the steak and it was good. I... More

This is an average casino, with a bonus of horses. We enjoyed both but would have appreciated better non-smoking games. All of the newer ones were in the smoking section.

I enjoy gambling. I decided to drive up to Erie and check out Presque Isle Casino. Oh my! Never again....before I launch in to my review, I anticipate someone from this establishment monitors trip advisor feedback..for that person, I highly suggest you review table recordings from roughly 4:30-6:15 on 7/16/15 before you try to write a rebuttal. My account is... More

Been to a few casinos (Pgh, St Louis, Tampa). This one is by far the smokiest and I don't usually even notice that sort of stuff. Did not spend too much time here so cannot comment on the slots or gaming. I made my contribution and left.
