Great dinner in the restaurant. I like how you can smoke cigarettes in the restaurant while dining. And if you stay 2 hours and play in the casino you get a free $25 comp for dinner

I have been going there for years, but recently the changes made to the slots club meals system and the high number of people there, have made it less fun. But I think people win more there than the Fife casino. As a 24/7 business...More

The staff at the concert venue was terribly rude. The seating was a joke for the price of the tickets. And the sound system was horrible. I will never see another show at this casino again.

Drove all the way from Vancouver, BC for the lobster buffet, lined up for more than 30 minutes only to be informed that there are no more lobsters in the lobster buffet! So disappointed!

Casino is fine. Staff are friendly. Had the seafood buffet. $24.95 USD per person. It was fine, actually had real prawns and crab legs. Show room is a bit outdated. Saw Paul Rodgers. He was aswesome as always.

The rooms are outdated. I have been to a few casino's in Washington State. This one needs a room and casino facelift. However, the machines to pay out! We had dinner at the sit down restaurant upstairs and the food was delicious!

Casino with outdated machines. Not certain their reward system. First time players receives a $ 20.00 food coupon voucher after 2 hours of play time. No tracking system. A new casino is currently under construction. Noticed a long waiting line for their buffet.p

I'm not sure what you mean, but the place is huge and the parking isn't the greatest. I wasn't impressed with it at all to be honest. Hard to get around and the place reeked of cigarette smoke.
