The heavy smoke & cigar smell alone will keep me from going back. Hard to breath, can’t escape it (except to a closet-sized non-smoking room with about 20 slots that’s only marginally better)... they really should invest in some quality air ventilation system. Didn’t stay...More

We enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere is always exciting and live. There were some ok promotions but I think they definitely need to have some drink specials! I don’t do beer and hot dogs. They had a lot of tables but all $10 Minimums, so that...More

Every time I go to this casino, I lose. I rarely ever play the machines because the machines hardly pay out either way. But on the tables, the pit bosses and floor people act like you owe them everything that you have. And I mean,...More

The Gun Lake Casino has a great Buffet. You have a huge selection of Italian, Mexican, Chinese, or home style American food. They have a great salad bar and desert bar. Anything you can imagine. Worth the trip!

We went on a Friday night, the buffet was very busy and crowded most of the night. The crab legs and the prime rib were both excellent, as were most of the other selections on the buffet. The new poker room was so crowded that...More

I'd rather stay and play at Four Winds, nicer casino than Gun Lake, and a good bit closer for you.

Available Cabs or Uber from Gun Lake Casino to downtown?? (3 Replies)
Staying downtown and we want to spend an evening at Gun Lake Casino. How hard is it to get a cab or Uber out there? Thanks in advance

I will add, though many see it is too risky, Craigslist has many drivers that would do the trip for less. Also to note. If you take the #10 bus to the 54th st Meijer to wait your taxi fares would be much less. $1.75 per person.
