This is a fairly small and average Native American casino. They have a few table games and mostly slots. I found my favorite game machines and won a little $. It is always a shock to enter a room in California with cigarette smoke! It is over-whelming even for a former smoker like me. It was a nice thing to... More

The Paiute Palace Casino is a fun place to visit in Bishop, CA. They offer mostly slot machines and usually only have blackjack and ultimate Texas hold-em for table games. They do offer live poker games including 1/2 and 3/5 no limit Texas hold-em. You need to call in or stop by to get in on the live action. Call... More

I have only eaten breakfast at this restaurant, and I don't normally eat out at breakfast time. I highly recommend the breakfast burrito, and everything else I've seen there looks good too. The wait staff is also very friendly and helpful

We had a fabulous time in the casino. The staff is very nice. The food was a disappointment . It was too salty and overlooked like it was reheated.

We come to the casino every year! We eat breakfast, sometimes 3 times in the 7 days were there. Cheap food that's very good! Nothing fancy! But the restaurant is family friendly. We gamble a little, I always win a little something. And yes the gas is cheaper! Overall a great little casino! :)

We enjoy the casino. The slot machines are pretty loose. We go every time we are in bishop. The staff is quite friendly.

First, outside drinks are not allowed. I had a coffee and the security guard came up to me and asked me to get rid of it. I went outside and finished it and went back in. He thanked me. I signed up for their players club. They gave me $15 extra because I showed them my lift ticket from Mammoth.... More

The city of Bishop is my half-way point between Palm Springs and Lake Tahoe, so it a must for a fluid adjustment break, a stretch, and a bite to eat....there are a few pretty good restaurants there. I also needed gas and the low prices at the Casino pump got my eye...and I decided to take a food break as... More
