“Red Hawk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Not the size of Thunder Valley and not as many slot choices but not as crowded either. Employees vary greatly from smiling to snarling, but if you don't need their help you won't have to deal with them. I too was aware of the smoky smell upon entering and after 4-5 hrs eyes were starting to burn. Slots were fun but dated not as many new as some other casinos but paying enough to feel good about visit. Overall a nice outing if you don't mind the drive. Valet prompt especially automated ticket for pick up, car appeared as soon as we exited casino.

“Smoke Gets in your eyes (and everywhere else here)”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We stopped in as we were in Placervile so this was not our main stop but we were curious. Facility beautiful, ample parking etc. but the minute you step into the doors to get the elevators you are overcome with smoke - especially on casino floor - it was just overpowering so we just left - our son (13) did enjoy the kidzone area and playing the games with his game card (similar to dave and busters card load system vs having to buy tokens all time - works well) and it seemed a great, safe place for kids to play but we won't be going back due to the smoke - we all hated it.

lkruase,
Thank you for your visit and review of Red Hawk Casino. We agree that the Kids Quest is a great place for kids of all ages to enjoy their time here. We did want to let you know that we do operate a state-of-the-art air filtration system throughout our casino's main gaming floor, on which smoking is allowed. However, if you prefer a non-smoking gaming environment, we do have an entire non-smoking dedicated floor just one level below the main gaming floor. You will also find many of our award-winning restaurants on this non-smoking floor as well. We do our best to cater to the preferences of all of our guests and sincerely hope you return for a second visit to try out the gaming action on our non-smoking level.

“Non Smoking floor!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

They have a non smoking floor. Great! Most casino's is just an area and it still is hard to breathe, with a totally non smoking floor, its so pleasant. Thank you Red Hawk Casino!

Very nice facility; good assortment of restaurants and buffet is very good with some special pricing offered; very nice multi-level covered parking area. Don't gamble much, but go there for dining and special offers. Staff very helpful.

“Best casino in our area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

My wife and I often visit Red Hawk to take advantage of the very good to excellent dining they offer. The buffet style dinning is the best in the foothill area. The food is fresh and delicious. Although we don't gamble much, the casino area is clean and well maintained. We would rather go here than any other casino in the area that we've tried.
