i love going to listen to the bands and dancing on Friday and Saturday nights, no cost to get in. soda and water are free, so it's a very affordable night out.

Having been here many times, I can only say good things about the Casino. The décor will interest many who have seen movies, and walk around seeing the props and such from them. The floor and casino area are very clean, and the service ahs always been friendly and prompt.

great place to go if you want to go gambling. They have museum and movie memorabilia thru-out the place. A great buffet and finally a no smoking policy. Miss the boats going out but.. oh well. it's still fun.

Its no Horseshoe but it's nice to go with a couple of friends on a random weekend. I like it because it isn't jam packed and the bets are a lower than the other bigger casions.

They wlll kick you out if you win. Don't drink and win. They hate it. Seriously stay away. They are terrible. If you are an attractive woman that wins, you will be kicked out

They were friendly when we played craps. Helpful dealers. Spoke with a late night manager, Chris. He was friendly, pleasant and tried his best in helping us out. We will be back..... save us a spot at your craps table.🎲🎲🎲🎲🎲🎲

Great place to relax, do some gambling (on the slots or the tables) and have a drink or two. Friendly staff all around, even when your not winning.

Food quality was terrible, but there was lots of it. Service was slow and there were very few patrons to service. Hostess staff was not friendly.
