I was at the casino this past Saturday evening from about 7-11. I played the tables for the first time since they put them in, my favorite game, black jack. I sat among some great people and ended up having a great time interacting with them. A big part of this was the great dealer we had, his name was... More

General employees seem to be ok...but not over the top friendly that they need to be in order to build a new client base. This place is a... More

Tioga Downs is expanding! They are currently a full-fledged casino and are in the process of building a resort hotel. They have consistently been family-friendly and strive to be supportive of our small community. The restaurants are good and there is a lot of variety there. Looking forward to the hotel, which will also have pools, a big waterslide, and... More

Tioga Downs has improved quite a bit from when it first opened. The slots are all new, although they are fairly tight on most weekends. I've only won over 100.00 a couple of times, but I'm not a huge gambler, so I just go to have fun and hopefully come out even, which happens most times I visit. The table... More

Since we like casinos and like new places we have expanded from our local casino(Mt Airy) and are visiting many casinos in NY/Pa/NJ/NY. It was a nice day and we decided to drive the 2+ hours to this casino. Not disappointed and will visit again but not what we wanted. The machines are new and laid out well but tight.We... More

If you like your food very spicy, it's the place to go. unfortunately we don't. My wife and I used the mild bbq sauce and ended up not being able to eat our sandwiches. French fries were soggy. Cole slaw was good. Definitely not worth what I paid for. I'll stick with the buffet next time.

We go to Tioga Downs to watch the UFC fights and throughly enjoy it. It's set up nicely and projected onto a big screen. I am glad Tioga Downs came to our area. We do not gamble or drink but love that they offer entertainment!

Spent Saturday night hanging out there. Don't know what it was like before but I like it now. Great music, beers were decently priced and a nice little selection of craft beers too! Won a few bucks so that is always good... and the staff was probably the nicest staff I have run into outside of vegas!
