They are so worried about moving machines to different positions and locations. Guess mgmt. needs to get a clue that that is a waste of time. Fix the ones you have, remind slot workers that their job is to look for trouble lights and not walk in tandem discussing personal issues. Improve your buffet, hire a chef for the steakhouse...

There is little space and no walls between the smoking and non smoking sections of the Casino. We were just walking through to get to the steak restaurant but had to pass through the smoking section to get there which is a bit of an inconvenience. Only played 1 $1 slot since we are much into the gambling but it... More

Thanks for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your time and yes you are correct, you do have to pass through the smoking section to get to LBV Steak & Pasta. Hopefully it was not something that would steer you away! You can however, enter the casino without having to pass through the smoking section by using the track-side... More

This casino also offers horse racing as well. Plenty of slot machines as well as table games. Beware, we played on a Saturday night and the rates went up at 9 p.m. I highly recommend the Burnt Ends appetizer in the restaurant/bar upstairs. You might want to order more than one...it's that good!

Thanks for taking the time to review PID! We love all of our dining options including The Brew Brothers which is where you had those great burnt ends! As for rates, our drink prices are always the same on the casino floor and nothing on our machines change rate-wise at anytime. What rates were you referring to? I hope this... More

College friends and I met here for a fun Saturday evening. The casino staff was very friendly and helpful. Smoking areas weren't terribly intrusive which we appreciated.
