Just your average casino. Nothing outstanding including the payouts. OK for a quick entertainment. Not impressed.

It's a little tight in the aisles on the weekends, hard to get some tables games and slot machines. People bumping into the chair you are sitting in. Has some of the newer slots and the dealers are helpful and fun. Buffet is good and so is Prime Burger house.

This place has a nice scenery. It has been the cleanest riverboat I've visited. The parking deck is well lit and airy, no one likes the dank, musty smell of parking decks. The machines weren't user friendly during my trip. There is a live poker section and the servers are pretty attention grabbing. Check it out if you're near by.

We were invited to the casino to dine in the fine dining steak restaurant by family members living in Chicago The restaurant was nicely decorated with our table of 9 comfortable sat in the middle of the restaurant. The food was good without being to pretentiousness, the service, as always in the USA with a smile.

It has a decent number of slots and table games. But It's small Casino. Some areas, there is no room to pass through between the Blackjack table next to the slot machine on weekends when they are most busy. They have a few restaurants; Prime Burger House, Buckinghams and Indulge Buffet. I have been to all of these restaurants and... More

Been here a few times now. Nice and large room always seems to have plenty of games going. Staff seems friendly. You can call ahead to be put on waiting list. I recommend doing that. Overall a nice night out.

We used to go a lot to the budget at GVC but the buffet price is out our reach for anything more than a once a year occasion. So we don't go to casino either anymore. 😕

Went Last night it was some March madness raffle night. As info...avoid on these types of "giveaway" nights as the casino tightens up the slots. Biggest clue was...sat down and saw ominious message on a machine....Listen up folks..."machine being configured" was flashed across in a blue box where the reel graphics are. This means their machines are hooked up to... More

I visit the Grand Victoria casino quite regularly. The staff is very friendly and professional. I feel welcomed and important when I go to GVC. From the security personnel to the cage workers to the wait staff to the poker dealers everyone is warm and welcoming and makes me feel important. Because I frequent the poker room mostly the dealers... More
