We went down to the Harbourfront Room to see the Group Bittersweet and do a little dancing and have a few libations. And I am happy to say that we achieved all our goals that evening. The gambling area is a lot quieter than I remember. No mater I don't gamble.

This could be a glamorous attraction for the city but the way it is now is just depressing. The restaurant was okay, not as good as its location demands. The slots are old and do not pay off at all, not even to keep one interested. Haven't attended any concerts though. It needs a serious make over.

First off, I love reading all the people who say "This Casino is nothing compared to Vegas". Well... not to be simplistic, but, duh, you're comparing Halifax to the gambling capital of the world. I only ever come to the Casino to play blackjack, and haven't been very lucky as of late. But the dealers are all very personable and... More

I enjoy this Casino, but it is mediocre. That is a rather bland comment, so let me explain. I have traveled and seen many Casino's. This one pales in comparison to all of them in Vegas. The Halifax Casino is also sub-par when compared to Rama or Fallsview. However, for Halifax it is enough. It is far better then the... More

Its no vegas but it has what you need for gambling. I love how cheap drinks and meals are here and also enjoy the bartenders that work there, always a great conversation.
