“Deserted Destination”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

This place is a dud. Very deserted when we went and they could have loured guests in with deals and events during Winter Festival in Newport, but nothing was going on.

“Surprize”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We stayed in the area. and did not realize their was a casino, until passing it by chance. We went inside, and were impressed at the cleanliness. We did arrive as soon as they opened for the day(10:00AM) but each person we talked to was very polite and helpful. They only have slots at this casino, so if you are looking for more games this is not the place for you. All things considered, a nice place to get away.

“Terrible, Would never recommend”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

I am so disappointed in this restaurant. It has been a long time since I have been so upset that I even spent the money to go out to eat, but this place was a total mood killer. The service was terrible. We had to ask three times for refills on waters and beer. The service was extremely slow, and when our food did finally come it was mediocre at best. We were so disappointed that this was how we spent our date night.

“I Won!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Stopped by on a snowy Saturday only to find out they were closing in 15 minutes due to the snow. Ran upstairs & won $30.00 in less than 3 minutes. How can you beat that?

“I guess it depends....”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

I went with a restaurant.com coupon for the restaurant there, and we were in the newport area for the weekend. So why not go check out the newport grand and have dinner? So we did. We are not gamblers or slot people at all. We walked the floor and that was it, not even a quarter in a slot machine. As it is a slot parlor, it was really loud on the floor(s). Pretty small by casino standards, but a floor for smokers (gag!) and a floor for non-smokers. I can't speak about the simo-cast area, didn't check it out. We were there early on a Saturday night and there was a small line for the restaurant, but not a long wait - 10 minutes maybe. The food was quite good, but the atmosphere was more diner than fine dining. The whole place is kind of worn and in need of an upgrade. But I suppose it you want a night out to play slots it might be ok for you. Just not our thing. We won't go back for that reason.
