Fun place to play!

They have a huge non-smoking section and the drinks are really cheap. I'm not much of a gambler but I've had a great time the last few times we've gone.

My wife and I spend most of our time playing table games and always have a wonderful time because the dealers and pit bosses are such fun to play with, even when we are losing. I cannot name everybody because their is not enough room. Suffice it to say that EVERYBODY IS HELPFUL, PROFESSIONAL AND FUN TO BE AROUND. Keep... More

This is the best place in the world to be on a Friday or Saturday night if you like crab and fresh seafood. Their seafood buffet which features lots of crab just cant be beat for the price. A bit of a drive off of I-5 but oh so worth it. Enjoy this place now!

This casino has a nice size non-smoking section. The cigarette guests are pretty dirty, and the machines could be kept cleaner. Bathrooms are clean. Sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose. Their roll over riches on weekends are filling the place up on Saturdays so its harder to get a favorite machine. The ability to convert your weekly reward to... More

We enjoyed a good meal last night with friends we hadn't dined with in some time. The Red Wind Seafood Restaurant is a fairly recent addition to the casino and their EVENTIDE MENU (only offered between 4 PM and 7 PM) provides a Three-course Meal only $19.95 Last night they featured three choices for the entrée including sirloin steak and...

We went for the lunch buffet. Not a hug he selection but some nice choices. Most disappointing was that they never came to clear out plates away so we could get seconds. Messy table.

Non-smoking area is great with lots of slot machines to chose from. The deli is nearby and is also smoke free and serves tasty food. You cant beat their homemade clam chowder.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. Lots of sea food as well as meat, veggies and dessert. I liked that they have an entrance separate from the noise and rush of the casino. Buffets are not my favorite, but it was good.

The casino was large with lots of slots and some tables. We walked through checking out the slots. Didn't find many with lower maximum bets. We only played a few. They had self serve soft drink machines. Restrooms were clean.
