We attempted to go to the casino during Old Home Week. It was a rainy day and we thought it'd be a good way to spend the night. Unbeknownst to us, we happened to be visiting during Old Home Week. We were told we had to pay admission to Old Home Week to go to the casino. On principle alone,... More

They are run by Atlantic Lottery and so easy to see how the slots are controlled and manipulated, my advice is to stay away from Casino but if you like to see a horse... More

I love their soups. I travel all the way from Cornwall to have their soups. Fish and chips are great too.

We are visiting from Florida, where the Seminole Indians have a pact with the State to operate Casinos (both machines and table games) at various locations throughout the state. Some are just as nice as ones you would find in Las Vegas. So with being accustomed to places like that back home, this Casino was an extreme disappointment. Didn't find... More
