Very nice staff - great deal when you set up your player card - spend $20 & get a free Lobster / Primerib & other seafood buffet. Great deal!

Went on recommendation of a friend looking for Crab Legs. A bit of a disappointment. Crab Legs tasted as if they had been frozen a little too long. Buffet choices were ok. Good salad options. Some heathy choices. Little no to veggie choices. Service was hit and miss. No assistance as we walked in. Have enjoyed better buffets in the... More

Absolutely loved this casino, and not just because we won there. The dealers very alive and fun to visit with. Probably the best drink service in the entire area. We stayed at a different facility but The Monarch is building a hotel at the moment. Can't Wait To Go Back.

Spoilt by casinos is Vegas, Macau and Montreal it is difficult to impress but: it is well laid out with modern and tidy equipment. The buffet pie was a hit and hence the review. 10 different kinds of pie and they are all great. Yes - we ate all 10. You know...for proficiency sake.

We went to the Christmas Buffet and were underwhelmed. We were there at 12 noon. The choices were kind of strange. It went breakfast to a meat station to Chinese food, but nothing was that good in any of them. The sliced ham felt like had been out too long, it was dried and tough. My husband tried to eat...
