My wife and I have stayed at the casino before and discovered the buffet was not even in the same class as those found at tunica, ms and other large casinos. On our last stay we found both the dinner buffet and breakfast buffet poor and disorganized as some food was not available when you wanted it and you had to practically eat one item at a time and go back for any others later. When I asked for the manager it was some time before a lady showed up with an attitude like what is your problem. After listening to me she simply said I will tell the chef, not that she herself cared. Our last stay there.

My wife and I went to visit her brother in cincinnati for a weekend in march and decided to take him to a casino in indiana. We had been to the argosy before (didn't like it) and decided to try the grand victoria this time. It did not start out well when we arrived to valet park and had to wait in a line just to drop off our car. This had to take at least 15 minutes. When you walk in the main entrance the hotel lobby is adjacent to all the restaurants. We ate at the buffet which I would give high marks. This is the only thing that gets high marks here. you have to walk past all the restaurants to board the boat for the casino and let me tell you it is cramped and tight. The escalators are right in the middle and there is very little space to move freely. Slot machines are just one or two steps from the table games. There is very little walking space here. there are 4 floors and the 4th is smoke free. The other 3 floors stink of smoke, which i believe is due to low ceilings. The real reason we came here is because we heard they had poker. they did. there are 6 tables on the bottom floor. The floor man was friendly and the games had good action but again, no space to move around the poker room area. I do not believe we would come here again. there are many other casinos with much better floor plans and space for customers. these places don't wreak of smoke either.

We have been to the Grand Victoria Casino a couple of times and stayed overnite also-the rooms and service were excellent. The buffet was great and the dealers went out of their way to help us to learn new games and techniques, since we were just beginners.We have been asked by several friends to go to the other casinos in the area, but we always tell them we are going back to the Grand Victoria-great place!!

I Had The MISfortune TO Having TO Stay There AND IT WAS ONE OF THE WORST EXperiences OF MY TRAVEL ADventures. QUALITY IS Totally Lacking IN That SO CALLED River Resort. THE SERVICE Both IN THE Hotel AND ESPECIALLY IN THE Casino WAS T E R R I B L E: THE employees OF The SO-CALLED "CAGE" Need To BE Trained ON How To Treat Their Customers. tHESE SO-Called PROFESSIONAL People Need TO BE WORKING IN A SLAUGTERhouse AND Not With THE PUBLIC. tHE FOOD Served WELL -NEVER MIND.... mAYBE Someone Should Buy This PROPERTY FROM THE HYATT Brothers and Show them what QUALITY WITH CLASS should be. AS you can tell i won't be back and tell everyone i can not to go near that place. It is just a big big waste of time and money
