“Not for the foo foo people/just normal ones.”

Harrah's Metropolis
Attraction details
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Great place. Used to go to Harrahs Cherokee, NC and it has become a place for people who want to be taken care of like a little kid. Food in their old buffet was better then the new one. Plus it was cheaper then the new one. To much foo foo food for a normal person like myself and my wife. Metropolis food and employees are great. No smoking is much better. You dont have to worry about smelling all smokey like others and it sooo much easier to breath. Older looking but it adds to the quaintness of it being on a riverboat. I wish they would put the tables on the top floor along with high roller machines. They belong together, out of the way. Plus I've won quite a few times and lost a few. Thats what a casino is all about. Want fancy, dont b---h, GO TO VEGAS.

Traveled there Oct 31, 2012 and spent one night. The hotel is excellent. Very clean, beds are very comfortable, nice big shower, and staff is very nice. Casino is old, but still had fun. Played slots, came out about $100 ahead. Very Nice! Food in the buffet was good. We will visit again soon.

Went for dinner and a show. Everything was good, but nothing over the top to tell friends about. The building, the rooms, the casino, the restaurants, the food, the staff, all just good.

This casino is pretty poor. i realize this isn't Vegas, but it was very sad. There didn't seem to be a big variety of slot machines there. Seemed to be several banks of the same machine. No Texas Hold 'Em table either.
