I am not a casino goer, but on my way through this casino to the restaurant I have to say I was impressed. This is a very clean, bright, and smoke-free Casino. I did see a smoker's Terrace sign, but there was no smell of smoke anywhere.

They have the best food I have ever eaten at a buffet. ( I AM NOT BIG ON BUFFETS). I love the shrimp and grits. Prime Rib is as good as any Prime Steak House . Outstanding variety. WOW

The design is nice and the lack of smoke in Illinois casinos is great. Fairly good selection of video poker and slot machines. Customer service is all over the place. The Players Club employees almost always act as if they would rather be somewhere else. The people at the Cashier Cage are almost always nice. People on the floor? That... More

Nothing special. Drinks $12. A couple restaurants. There is no smoking inside which is nice. Not much to say about it.

Dealers were very arrogant and condescending. They made a mistake on a craps table payout and never apologized. I was very patient and was not angry but very disappointed on how they addressed the problem. Very unprofessional.

After meeting some friends for lunch at the buffet, everyone split up and headed to the slots or gaming tables that they preferred. Located near O'Hare Airport, it is convenient to the northwest side of Chicago and northwest suburbs. There is plenty of parking, including garage and $5 valet parking. There is a smoking terrace, so you don't have to... More

The gambling is fun there, just like you would find at pretty much any casino. I love how clean it is and how big the facility is. The only complaint I have is that the drinks are way over prices, but I suppose you'll find that at any casino.

We have gamed here each of the 3 times we've eaten here. The facility is clean and very well kept. It is smoke free too. They have a really nice open bar in the center of the casino that's nice to relax in. Neither of us have even went away with any winnings the 3 times we have gamed here.

I NEVER, well almost never, choose to eat at a buffet. Christmas day, wanted to hit Hugo's Frog bar inside the casino but it was too busy. Opted for the buffet. Seriously couldn't believe my taste buds. Literally everything I tried was really good...and the bread pudding was extra runny (kidding). For the most part the clientele was polite and... More
