This is a pretty small casino, one giant room but ith a decent size bar. The major theme is slot machine, most of which work. The poker machines at the bar tend to get jammed up and require the staff to fix them. This is not the most fun place around the Pointe Arena area.

Garcia River Casino is 5 years old, but it's well kept & still looks almost new. A Native American Casino, it features 150 gaming machines in a 9,000 sq. ft. space, + a Bar & Restaurant. The River Grill has a large menu & reasonable prices, so it's been a hit with the locals. There are not many restaurants in... More

Food was good for such a remote location. I had a veggie burger with garlic fries and a side sale that was so big I had to take the rest to the hotel for later. My wife had the clam chowder which apparently wins awards. She liked it. Her first so can't really compare it. She had fish and chips... More

Off-season dining choices are limited in the Point Arena area, so our inn clerk recommended the casino for dinner. Good food and service and some fun slots while we waited for our food.

The Garcia River Casino is a small, friendly stop on your way thru Point Arena. We have been to the casino, located less than 10 minutes off of Hwy 1, on probably 8 or 10 trips up or down the coast since they have opened. The casino is small, but has enough variety of slot machines, that we are always... More

We enjoyed this casino. The casino is clean and has a welcoming environment. We did not eat or drink at this casino.

We were surprised to find such a nice small casino and restaurant in an out of the way area. Pleasant atmosphere. Very good simple lunch of grilled cheese sandwich and fries. Short staffed and order wasn't right but they were happy to correct mistakes.

Live bands show up to play on Saturday nights and the cozy atmosphere makes it so fun. Staff was nice and the food was great. Not too crowded

When my hubby and I walked in, we were pleasantly surprised at how few people were in there. Also, very little smoke, which is a huge turn off for us. There is a little grill, but we didn't eat there. Everyone was pleasant and we even won a little money! The drive is very pretty and scenic. Well worth the... More

This is one of the poorest casinos we have seen. No smoke free area. The restaurant is like a fast food joint although the food was good,
