“Buffet is Good; Slots are tight”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

The buffet is delicious. Staff works hard to make your meal comfortable. The gift shop is closed until Noon; a bit inconvenient for morning people. Casino slots are tight. Casino staff are friendly. Parking is safe and secure both inside and out. Casino and buffet are extremely clean.

“The Stadium Rstaurant”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

There is a an area inside the Hollywood casino that houses 3 restaurants. My family & I went to the Stadium Restaurant. Average price for any menu item was about $10. They have burgers, specialty sandwiches, pasta dishes & of course many appetizers. We heard they had a great BYOB ("build your own burger") & they were right! With free parking (or valet service) the restaurants are right inside the door, far away from the casino, so kids are welcome, too. Because it's called the Stadium, it does have a sports theme & yes a large 40' TV screen in addition to the many smaller wall mounted TV's. My sons & I had the BYOB & each were perfect...son's liking theirs nearly raw, mine slightly pink. My husband had the Rueben & said it was one of the best he'd had with lots of meat. Our waiter, Jonathan, was very attentive & always made sure our water & soda glasses were filled, noticed our alcoholic drinks were low so always asked if we wanted another & just didn't assume & bring more. This restaurant is close to I-80 & I-55 so very easy to get in & out of. (We live about 25 miles away.) There is also a movie theater inside so dinner & a movie is something to do in the Chicago cold winter months! For those coming from out of town, there is a motel located within walking distance of the front entrance to the building. Even if you're not a gambler, put this restaurant on your list of places to eat! You will enjoy your meal & be back to try more items on their menu!

Supposedly the casino before this one burnt down and they rebuilt.. The theme in this casino is awesome!!!! Take a camera! The slots are a lot looser than at Harrah's. The first floor is your penny machines and relaxed play area, downstairs is your higher limit slots and games.
We would stop again if we were in the area.

“Final Cut Steakhouse, Excellent!”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

4 of us had dinner at the Final Cut Steakhouse. Each person had something different to eat and each item was fantastic. We had filet mignon, salmon, seabass and a ribeye. No one was disappointed. They also have a prix fix menu with very good items on it. Service was outstanding as well as the atmosphere.

“Good evening”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

This casino is located across the parking lot where the RV park and hotel are. Staying at either of those is helpful in that you are within walking distance if you desire. We found the casino not much unlike others we have visited however the large TV screens in the sports bar/restaurant was a plus.,they are huge. I noticed some new slots, the bottom floor i believe is table games with some slots as well. Overall, well lit,plenty parking,tight machines but friendly staff.
