After my previous review and since I've been away for a quite awhile, I thought I'd give them another chance to see if things had improved or gotten worse. Being right before the holidays, you would figure in the spirit of "giving" maybe EQC would loosen up their machines a bit to give the locals a chance at winning some... More

All the bars except fin dining Tatoosh are stand up and order and get out of the way so somebody else can order. Only places to sit are at slot machines (most of which do not have drink holders). No map to help the walking process except a screen that doesnt even tell you where you are unless you ask... More

Buffet is great.....the whole place is TOO smoky! We took friends who smoke and they felt that it was the most smoky of any casino they have been in.

Excellent slot selection. Best Chinese Food in the entire area. The buffet wait need to be addressed as it is at least 2 hours on Wednesday and Sunday nights.

Went here with my husband on a out of town date night and had fun. They have good food for decent prices. We ended up winning $200 and leaving happy. They only negative thing was staff. It was very hard to find someone who didn't have an attitude and the waitresses never came around, but that's ok I can get... More

Went to the big emerald queen this morning about 8:00 a.m., I was amazed by the number of homeless people that were roaming around the casino aimlessly. It was evident, that some where tweakers and prostitutes. I encounter a few elderly people, (as well as my mother), who stated they have been harassed by these folks asking for money or... More

This is a smoking casino so beware. It is well ventilated though. The waitresses are very efficient and come around quite often asking if you want free drinks. The casino is quite large with 4 different rooms on the first floor. The dining is located upstairs and they offer buffet and sit down eating. I did not get up there... More

So, I visited the Emerald Queen Casino for a concert but had to endure the ratched, smoky, sullen-looking faces of its patrons in order to get to the concert showroom. Oh my! This place is depressing...if you're allergic to cigarrette smoke...DO NOT, i repeat...DO NOT attempt to traverse the casino floor. You won't make it! The smoke is so thick,... More

I really liked the set up of the showroom, I felt like I was at church lol It's open and you can pretty much see really well from any seat. I do hate though that people just stand behind the VIP rows so sometimes you cant see if they do that The drinks are quite spendy and not very strong... More
