“Casino Night”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

This place was ok. we ate at the buffet and were not impressed by the food the salad bar looked like the food had been sitting for awhile. There are other places to eat there they may be better. I would suggest trying one of those instead of the buffet. We had fun gambling but the machines were really tight they don't pay much at all. Good thing we had a some luck at the tables so we weren't to much in the hole. One positive thing about the place the staff was really friendly and helpful and there was an area in the casino for non-smokers which was nice.

“An evening out proved to be a disappointment.”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Went primarily for the buffet dinner. Gaming area was just ok. Long way to walk from the parking garage to the casino/buffet. Food was not appealing (presentation was below average). More like a cafeteria.

“Great Diversion after Wine Tasting”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

About 90 minutes north of SF, off Hwy 101 near Geyserville CA. Lots of slots and table games. Very crowded on weekends as buses bring in gamblers from throughout the Bay Area. Cheap buffet, esp. with promotional coupons, with a dining deck overlooking the Alexander valley. While there are some accommodations in nearby Geyserville, add'l rooms can be found in Healdsburg about 10 minutes south.

“Typical casino experience...but scenery is fantastic!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

For a real departure, I wanted to go to a casino in Northern California. More so, I wanted to take the bus ride so I didn't have to drive. I wanted to see the scenery. The Alexander Valley is really pretty and is quite rural. The River Rock Casino looks like a military installation tucked into the side of a hillside; note to self, there is nothing else around there in which to walk to and visit...no shopping, or quaint town to spend money if you don't gamble. I will note that there was something for everyone, except any kind of live entertainment facility. There were, of course, the gaming tables, the slot machines, and the like. (There is a non-smoking area.) The restaurant I ate at, which was a buffet style, was quite good for what it was, and for $9.99, a person could overeat to their heart's content--especially the salad bar. The staff was pleasant and though a casino trades on its ability to timeless, the daytime is probably a better time to be there. It is a typical casino...you either win or lose. (Note to self: breaking even is winning.)

“Okay Indian Casino”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Smoke seemed to circulate in this casino and we left after less than an hour. Big number of slots and parking is available in multi-level garage. Did not try any restaurants on this property.
