“Great Place to Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

This casino is a fun place to stop on your way through Petoskey. The people working here are very friendly and helpful. I would not suggest eating at the front grill as it seems as if all the food it precooked and not very fresh.

“Tight slots”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Slots very cold. Extremely few and small bonuses. A typical Michigan Indian Casino. It sure isn't Vegas!

“My Award-Winning Casino!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is the second time my wife and I have visited this casino, being from Wisconsin. We have played at nearly 2 dozen casinos in the midwest and this casino ranks pretty darn near the top of the list.

Neither one of us have won big here but the floor atmosphere is superior and the whole operation is managed with expertise like I seldom have ever seen. Floor managers are visible everywhere and workers actually work versus being seen socializing with co-workers in dark corners or the restrooms.

The property looks brand new and is spotless. The restaurant is by far and away the best of any casino restaurant we have tried in all our travels in the midwest. Like on the casino floor, the restauarant attendants are observant and customer service oriented.

The bar is lively and clientele is younger than usual in both the bar and on the casino floor. The casino facility itself is average yet the buzz and atmosphere overcome the average facility itself.

One recommendation ... enjoy this well-managed property and hope they continue to stay on top of their game!

“Great casino!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Great casino with very friendly staff. Played the automated Blackjack for a few hours. It's one of the few casinos that have this type of game. Also has a very nice buffet that is reasonably priced. Food was very good.

We stayed at the local KOA. There is a shuttle to the casino from the campground but we didn't use it.

We will go again!
