Fun but smokey

I enjoyed my time playing slots but had to go to the small non-smoking area as the other areas were just too much for me. We ate at the buffet and it was excellent.

Emerald Queen has several restaurants in their casino. I've only ate at their Buffet. On Friday and Saturday night it's seafood buffet. And they have lot's of crab, usually at least two kinds of crab. Like Dungeoness and Snow or King crab. They always have FRY BREAD! Lot their Indian fry bread. Of course they have the usual buffet things,... More

We usually get 2nd row $100 per ticket seats. Usually about 7-9 fights lasting a couple hours at least. Music is not too loud, ring girls are appropriate, easy bar to get drinks while watching the fights (pop and water are free). Non smoking area (there is smoking down in the casino, but you can use the no smoking entrance... More

Didn't visit the casino area itself but the area where the concert was held was a nice area but too many seats crammed into it, they were fold up chairs that you were literally elbow to elbow.

I enjoy the EQC because they have good concerts, professional staff and they have great buffets! Table games are fun and slots pay off sometimes.

My last night of travelling was spent at this casino. It was really nice and I had a great time. They had varied slot machines with different monetary values. I'm vague on my memory a bit and I don't go to a lot of casinos for comparison, but it was off the beaten path and I would go again!

We enjoyed our time playing slots, but the food in the buffet was not worth the money or the time. I noticed there were some new slot machines I hadn't played before.

I have been here 3 times. Twice with friends and once to pick up a friend with car problems. Do not go unless you have a head cold that saves you from the stink. Some people who go to emerald queen regularly only seem to bathe in liquor, vomit, and human waste. The first I went, it was a event,... More

My husband and I watched a comedy show here last night. I have to say that the service we received was impeccable. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. We ate in the buffet. The food was excellent and plentiful. Service was good. But be prepared to wait a long time. If you have an 830 show, arrive by... More
