“A nice Casino”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

This casino is an excellent alternative to the bigger casino's. If you are looking for a quick break and want to play this is the place.They have varies gaming stations, good food, events, concerts, comedy shows, drinks specials and comedy night. I love going here for a couple of hours to get away.

“More Than Gambling”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Enjoy the races and the people watching. Good shows. Not someplace you want to eat, unfortunately. The only restaurant worth visiting is the Empire Terrace. Any of the other restaurants you will find better at the mall.

“If only the city was this well run”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised with the level of service and overall operations at Empire casino at Yonkers Raceway. The casino floor was gigantic and endless, is it Vegas- no- its ZYonkers and with all the money you save by not flying to vegas or driviong to AC, you can more than enjoy yourself at this well run Casino. Everythign ran like clock work and it was obvious there was pride in those who worked there. Could have afew more food options but overall I think this place was great and only 20 minutes form mny home in northeast NJ. They had a band shell inthe casion which attracted lots of locals on this Sunday night. It was great see local culture ripping it up on the dance floor to smooth latin beats. I am impressed with Empire casino..Real gaming tables are up stairs on second floor : )

“If you are a hard core gambler ....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

If you are a gambler it really doesnt matter to you what the place looks like or where it is. Then Empire City is the place for you. Its not horrible... just really not worth going unless you absolutely have to gamble. If you are looking for more of a "casino" experience... try Foxwoods/Mohegan Sun or even Atlantic City.
