Outstanding Restaurant. Been there a dozen times. A few times we just have the appetizers :tuna tartar, and the avocado crab meat. As to the casino, I am amazed how busy they are.

The employees at this establishment are always helpful, when it comes to answering any questions. Although I am not a gambler, it has always intrigued me to see all the activity within. Security is there for the comfort of all the customers who visit.
