“Needs a major update”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

You know how some of the old casino's in Las Vegas are being torn down? This one needs to be included. Majorly old and outdated. The concert venue is a joke. Everyone is on the floor which makes seating really bad. I would skip this all together.

“Too much food, too little quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The Fife location buffet has way too many food offerings to be able to focus on quality. Fewer offerings would guarantee turnover for better freshness.The upstairs "fine dining" restaurant is better as it is made to order, but the food prep is not consistent in the way it is prepared. The Tacoma location's food is the worst - large sized people going in to eat huge quantities of fatty food served from enormous steam trays. Need to raise prices and improve the quality of the food - have servers serve the food instead of letting people serve themselves.

“Fun time at Casino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you like going to Casinos try the one in Fife WA. Clean, friendly and tons of free parking. If you register, in two hours they give you a pass for $20.00 to use for food in the buffet, restaurant or pizza place. They have a large non smoking area as well.

“Non smokers beware”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Very smokey, even where the non smoking section is located. Carpets look like they could use a very thorough cleaning. Staff very nice, but with all the security guys, you feel like your in a prison.

“alot of machine choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

They have alot of machines and are updade regularly. machines are not bad for payouts most of time. You can't make a living at slots but it can be a nice get away that usually lasts for awhile.
