I enjoy visiting the different casino's around the country and "donating" towards their upkeep. It's a fun place to see and play. After, I watched the greyhound racing. Never saw it before and it was amazing how fast these dogs run plus how they make them stop running. Apparently, it's a popular passtime here since the betting area was crowded... More

This was probably my 5th time here? Went mainly for the dog track, unfortunately the rabbit broke down after 3 races and took over an hour to fix, stayed for maybe 4 more races, first time this has ever happened while I have been there though. Gambled some in the casino, nice place, had fun, really wouldn't recommend the pizza... More

I liked the casino but many of the slot machines were very dirty, actually to dirty to use. The people supposed to be cleaning worked in a group of three so only one worked at a time. I am not sure it takes three people to empty and ashtray. They do not wipe them out just empty them. I never... More

Had a nice time, small casino not a huge quantity of slots but a fairy decent variety of them, only wish there were some of the newer 25 cent slots that I see at other casinos, didn't see any of them, mostly single line older style quarter slots which was mostly what I like to play, otherwise ok casino.

Hollywood casinos PA,OH, Windsor,CA, Niagra Falls Rainbow Bridge, The Meadows in Washington PA, Hard Rock Hollywood FL, Atlantic City's Taj, even Presque Isle in Erie, none are similar to this little Casino on the Island. Maybe that's why people enjoy coming here. I have to say I've won more here than any of the others but maybe that's because I've... More

We needed to destress after driving from hot humid Tampa Florida on the way back to New York. It was a great place to spend 2 nights. Highly recommend this site for relaxing and enjoying the good food and meeting nice people. The staff was very accommodating and the room was very clean and relaxing.
