River Spirit Casino Resort has brought a little slice of paradise to Tulsa with Margaritaville Casino & Restaurant, which opened in 2016. The addition of this new casino means River Spirit now has two casinos in one, each with its own distinctive atmosphere and décor. With over 3,000 high-tech electronic machines, numerous poker tables and table games, River Spirit Casino and Margaritaville Casino are the destination of choice for casino excitement. Guests can enjoy several dining and entertainment venues including Visions Buffet, Johnny Rockets - The Original Hamburger, Scoreboard Sports Bar, 5 o'Clock Somewhere Bar, and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville restaurant. Ruth's Chris Steak House, the latest culinary addition to our growing portfolio of exciting restaurant offerings, is scheduled to open in early 2017. River Spirit Casino Resort is adding luxurious 483-room hotel, retail shops, a 30,000 square foot convention and meeting center, a 2,500+ seat showroom theater for live entertainment and sporting events.

I have stopped in a few times now and the payout at this casino is not that great. I am always social and talk to the other players around me and they reinforced my opinion. Good place to blow your money but not a casino that will make you a big winner. Oklahoma needs to get away from Native American... More

Only machine that paid was the ATM... They could loosen them up a little bit so you play longer. $100+ bucks gone...

Slot machine payouts are absolutely dismal. Customers are complaining. The casino is becoming progressively more empty on weekdays. Payouts have to be totaling 5% or less most days. It appears there is virtually no chance of winning unless you are perceived to be a new high roller to be caught in the excitement of betting more and more. The only... More

Went to this casino with my sister for seafood dinner at the buffet and was extremely disappointed. We waited in a ridiculous line for an hour and a half and by the time we got up there to pay there was a sign that said no longer serving crab. How hard is it to post that sign throughout the casino... More

We have been here multiple times. Love this Casino. Seems to get better and better. Glad most of the construction in the Casino area has been completed. There are wider aisles now and more relaxed atmosphere. Love the new look since margaritaville is completed.

Went with friends on September 3rd at 5:00 p.m for dinner at Margaritaville restaurant. Let me start of by saying we waited 30 minutes for alcohol from the bar. Our server was very kind and kept coming back to our table apologizing for the wait. Our appetizer we ordered never came. When the food arrived, a steak that was ordered... More

Might be a good place to kill some time but if you want to win some money go somewhere else don't know why I have to fund their hotel project I go there for the casino not for the hotel

Stopped by to try my luck and I'm glad I did! Slots are great as well as the table games. Restaurant is to die for! Buffet is recommended and well worth the money.

What a disappointment. We waited patiently for the remodel of the Visions restaurant to be completed so we could return and consume many crabs. We stood in a very long line, as usual, and still paid $28. We anxiously approached the crab area and there, to our dismay, was only a pathetic pile of shrimp and disgusting raw oysters. We... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Visions Buffet and River Spirit. Our decision to remove crab legs from the buffet was based on quality.

Absolutely and completely disappointed with Margaritaville in Tulsa. The volcano actually erupts every hour and we almost got to see it 3 times before we left. Took an hour to get the food, which was not correct. Then it took another 5-10 minutes to get an extra plate. 30 minutes to get our ticket. No management helping at all! Waitresses... More
