Was at this "casino" on my birthday, what an absolutely disappointing expierence! Very RUDE, untrained, CLUELESS employees and management! There were two ladies in the players club that were more worried about talking to each other then helping guests. When finally my turn I asked questions about free play on my card about why there was only $5 on it... More

The location of this casino was good for us (I realize it is in remote area of town), because it was right at the end of the "T". Having never been here, it was an easy trip from the Omni Hotel. I was happy to see that there were slot machines in a non-smoking area of the casino, but there... More

I love our city but this casino doesn't payout for what you put in. I realize that due to laws free drinks can't be given but how about a voucher for one or two while you are there? I spend,spend,spend and hardly win anything.

Though we did not notice anyone winning...not even small amounts.. They do not offer free drinks nor do they give you any free playing credit for first... More

It was a decent 1st time trip here for me. I didn't have any major issues here expect for the smoke, which was pretty bad even in the non-smoking areas. Plus, the guard at the front really wasn't overly friendly. But otherwise, I enjoyed my time here and the buffet here was very good for the price we had to... More

Stopped here while on a business trip to Pittsburgh. Very nice facility. Large and the atmosphere is very nice. Had dinner at Wheelhouse and it was okay. As far as I can tell, they do not offer free drinks. I did not get the chance to play a table game because I was with a coworker so maybe they do... More

This looks to be quite a nice casino, though I am not much of a gambler - I primarily went to eat at the buffet and, between the crab legs and the desert assortment, I was not disappointed.

Visited with my girlfriend from California and expected a Vegas style casino and we were very disappointed. Place was filled with your typical western Pa individuals wearing sweatpants with a pair of dirty reebok sneakers and a drink stained t-shirt. I thought I was at your local was mart on a Friday night!! Very embarrassing to say I am from... More
