Upgrades have helped the Red Wind to attract many more entertainment seekers in the last six months. Huge non-smoking section has ample slot machines to keep you busy. New deli has good food, with the restaurant to re-open soon! Nice to see the Red Wind expanding to offer better options. Keno area has moved and is now in a better... More

Casinos are casinos and we have quite a few in the area, food and entertainment set them apart. The Red Wind, I think it's actually RedWind, has a very good seafood buffet once a week. Otherwise they have two pretty good bars at either end of the building.

Visiting Wasington from Texas. Chose Red Wind from information submitted in Trip Advisor. Arrived to Red Wing for breakfast and some play time. There is ample parking and valet available. Breakfast was an interesting array of breakfast foods as well as salmon, shrimp and full salad bar. The eggs Benedict was made nicely but hollaindaise sauce was not tasteful at... More

I have gone to this Casino for many years. I really like the upgrades they are making, but I agree.... No one seems to win any more!

I visited the non-smoking area which was very large, many machines, and entirely smoke free! Parking is very easy either by yourself or the valet.

We used to enjoy visiting Red Wind until the remodel started. Staff used to be friendly, outgoing and made an effort to get to know you. Now, slots are tight, staff is less friendly and food in the new deli has actually gone down in quality. Food service: you only had one cash register open in the deli at 6:00... More

The new non-smoking area is excellent. This casino has the added attraction of excellent pit supervisors like David, Toni, Steven, Diane, and of course Stevie, the Mgr. This dynamic crew could prepare a manual or conduct an excellent seminar on the finer points of casino games, customer service, human behavior, and the psychology of dealing with casino patrons.

This is one of the nicest casino's in WA state. It is clean and smells great, I am a non smoker so I am so glad that they decided to upgrade and separate the smokers.

We been meaning to stop in for dinner at the Red Wind Casino grill as we'd been told it was good...
