The environment was dated but very clean, they have a good variety of slots and table games. The staff was nice and attentive. We play for a while on not much money.

Finally went back after staying away for 3 years. The place is just more run down with tight slots and $20 minimum tables. They still give you an uncomfortable stare down when walking on to make sure you haven't been drinking at all. Ridiculous behavior for a casino, why not make everyone blow into a breathalyzer and not serve alcohol.

My husband and I travel to a number of casinos throughout the year. This one is close to my house and is not my favorite. The slots are very tight and most nights I lose very quickly. I don't necessarily care about losing (I get that the odds are against me when gambling -- especially slots) but it just seems... More

i love going to listen to the bands and dancing on Friday and Saturday nights, no cost to get in. soda and water are free, so it's a very affordable night out.

Having been here many times, I can only say good things about the Casino. The décor will interest many who have seen movies, and walk around seeing the props and such from them. The floor and casino area are very clean, and the service ahs always been friendly and prompt.

great place to go if you want to go gambling. They have museum and movie memorabilia thru-out the place. A great buffet and finally a no smoking policy. Miss the boats going out but.. oh well. it's still fun.

Its no Horseshoe but it's nice to go with a couple of friends on a random weekend. I like it because it isn't jam packed and the bets are a lower than the other bigger casions.
