Sometimes the machines are hot, other times cold. Harrah's Philly would have to be my favorite due to the fact it holds more of my favorites machines, and Hollywood comes close. It's a clean facility for sure, the machines are never sticky like they are at some places. They have smoking and non, and a great selection of machines, table... More

Excellent staff, great food in all areas. Buffet is the best I've had since Vegas. Steakhouse is superior, expensive, but it's perfect in every way. Super friendly staff despite the upscale ambiance (I had on jeans and boots) the gambling floor and staff are so very polished and professional and so courteous. Decor is awesome... Beautiful Hollywood themed can lights,... More

Visited the casino with my wife on 4/11/15 for a few hours and had a great time. Didn't see many large payouts on the slots, but we left up about $300 - got lucky on one machine. Yes, as others have mentioned, it is smoky, but not too bad in the non-smoking sections. There are lots of slots, over 2400... More

So, basically, this is a gambling parlor that has a race track attached. It started off not so good because there are NO directional signs to the track. It is all about gambling in the casino. It took us a half hour to find out where to go. Food was weak in the restaurant.....but racing/betting was good.

Don't expect Las Vegas or Reno. The Table Minimums are rather high. Alot of Penny Machines. Free Aduld Beverages take a while to arrive. There is free soda available at self service stands around the casino. Good entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. Food is rather Espensive. one of the few places you can smoke in select areas inside.

This casino is by far one of the nicest I have ever been to. I came here with my family and had a great time, but their were some issues. The food and customer service is fantastic; however, the casino was so crowded. I could not get around to using all the machines or table I wanted because most of... More

We ate dinner but were not pleased. We went around 6:00 pm. on a Sunday night. There was very little food at each station. The food also was very dry and not alot of choices. The waitress was good and friendly.

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.
