Expect you to pay money to give you a hard time. Staff very unprofessional and collect side tips for favors. KNOWN TO TAKE YOUR MONEY THEN KICK YOU OUT. Horrible casino!

My husband and I met friends there after dinner with other friends and we had a great time. Nice atmosphere. They have really great bands. It's a perfect size, not overwhelming. Food there is excellent.
