“Better, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The dinner buffet is much improved, but it still has a ways to go before it can compete with the Spirit Mountain buffet. Also, the casino's main area isn't too bad, but so many penny slots have higher minimum bets than previously. Also, the non-smoking section is like a poor step-child that feels neglected and 2nd rate. It's not a bad casino, but it's not first-rate, either.

Lost money, no entertainers booked while we were there. Dislike smoking casinos, very small non-smoking area.

“Loads of fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Excellent dinner buffet with excellent service. Well worth the price. Nice hotel with a great pool. The slots were fair, allowing you lots of play for your buck. Never ending supply of coffee and cold beverages. Free shuttle. Nice beach. Free apples, coffee and newspaper in the lobby for guests. Great service.
Only downfall is the cigarette smoke. Hope it will someday be smoke free inside.
Will return.

“Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I do not gamble; but we went to the buffet for dinner! I was just what you would expect!

I am not real fond of buffet's, but this was fine. I had salad, shrimp & several desserts. The Prime Rib looked good. The waitress wasn't real friendly, but it was fine.
