My family and I went to the casino to gamble and have dinner. We are from out of town, so this was our first time here. Right away I sat down at a machine and started winning. The moment my machine started paying, I had either security, or a casino employee standing behind my sister and I; most of the... More

Northern Lights was the venue for a meeting I needed to attend, so I did not pay much attention to some of the negative reviews. I was committed in any case. I'm not a casino-goer, so I can't say anything about that part of the facility beyond the fact that the slots and tables seemed busy the couple of times... More

Horrible guest service no smiles. Here 20 minutes before we were acknowledged. Theroom was clean not including the sink... Buffet was ok... Dancing fire was really good but a little spendy. Casino was extremely smokey...

The casino was clean, the entertainment was great, the band they had was from Minneapolis. The customer service was good at the Dancing Fire, but the snack shop was terrible. The staff there was very unfriendly, like they didn't want to be there. We tried to order a salad, and was told they didn't have a chef, so no chef... More

We just got back from a weekend in Walker. Had never stayed at the casino before and were pleasantly surprised by the nice room and cleanliness, etc. Only complaint is that upon check-in, we found that two different reservations were made in our name for two rooms, one night. Our reservation was for one room, two nights. (Yes, we had... More

We stayed here on Christmas night 2012, just my boyfriend and I. We stayed in a suite with a small kitchen, dining table, living room area, fire place, and television in the first room. In the second room there was a king bed, television and hot tub. The bathroom was just as nice with shower, sink area and toilet area... More

We stayed for one night on Sunday 10-7-12 - going to attend the Robert Irvine Live Show. Check-in: Front desk staff was very short and not at all friendly. The lady had a very unproffesional outfit on. Not pleasant, nor informative. Basically "sign here - here's the key". This was the first encounter with an employee, however it was the... More

"Standard" room is just that. Panders to gamblers who intend to spend less time in the room. 2 pillows/queen, no conditioner or iron/board nor mini-fridge/micro. Buffet was economical and tasty. Breakfast upstairs at the Dancing Fire Restaurant was very good. Was made even better with waitress Darla's sunny personality. Good check-in/out and had motorcycle parking. You don't have to be...

My son gave us a casino package that was lost until this week. It expires 4/5/12, I called to try and get a room this weekend using the gift certificate and was told there were no extensions and that they were 100% booked. The reason they gave for not extending the gift certificate? They wouldn't get paid for the certificate... More
