We had a surprise birthday party for my sister in the back room of the buffet. The food was very good. Everyone said they liked it. I had the sliced turkey & my sister had the beef, both were cooked to perfection. They have everything you can possibly want. The desserts were great too. I loved the chocolate fountain! Our...

Gambling was about the same as it is in all casino's, The food court was nice. You didn't feel like you were in a food court. If you go there, eat the pizza. It is fabulous. The bakery is good too. The machines were all working and the establishment was very clean.

We love going to Hollywood Casino, but have been very disappointed in pay-outs lately. We used to be able to go here and play for hours with less money a couple of years ago than we can now.

Went in with not exactly lots of money, but left down $200 - in only about a one hour span. Craps table was not kind to us, and we couldn't breathe due to the smokiness in the casino. Free drinks were nice, but did certainly not make up for the amount lost in gambling money which was a lot for... More

I just got back from visiting the Hollywood Casino in Grantville, PA with my wife. We traveled from our home in Stafford, VA to Harrisburg PA to go to the Great American Outdoor Show at the Farm Show Complex, and afterwards we went to the casino in Grantville. It was only a twenty mile trip from Harrisburg, but because of... More
