Went there with friends and was somewhat surprised. Casino is small, and games are packed closed together. Restaurants were decent, but slightly overrated . Food was good but selection was lacking at buffet. Overall had a good time. Plan to go back next time and stay in the hotel.

I'm going to break this down into two comment sections: The casino side has a small smoke free section that backs up to the smoking section. Even while sitting in the non-smoking section you can still smell the smoke. You also have to walk through the smoking section to get to non-smoking. I give the casino a 3-star because I... More

Visited this casino because my mom wanted to try her luck on the slots. Since I don't gamble, I made use the relaxing areas to read my books. Very nice and decent. Casino is loud as you can imagine, but with headphones and a nice cup of coffee, I was relax and content to sit and read while mom played.

Even though outside of downtown ( about 10 mins) we were not disappointed! The staff was very friendly, professional and couldn't do enough to ensure our stay exceeded expectations!

As soon as we had walked in we ended up walking right next to staff of the casino. We couldn't help but overhear remarks from the female staff about how she "didn't even want to be there right now." Moving on, we had to deal with staff whenever something went wrong with our machine. We will never return to this... More

My husband and I attended the Dwight Yoakam concert at River City tonight and we had such a bad experience that we doubt we'll ever go to another concert there. This was our 3rd concert at River City. The first was Merle Haggard and the 2nd was Loretta Lynn and they were both enjoyable. Tonight's concert was scheduled for 8... More

Attended a recent musical performance for the first time in the ballroom. While intimate at only 1,000 seats the side seats had terrible acoustics. After abandoning the seats to stand in the SRO section next to the mixing board we finally got a good music experience, however, the back of the room was where the bars were located and plenty...
