Nice, clean and friendly. Table games are the best bet as slots payout is not very good. The highend resturant is good as is the Take Two, buffet is not a good deal for the money.

Just love the variety of games and the friendliness of the staff. Did not win much, but enjoyed the old Hollywood atmosphere and the laughs we had gambling together in a group.

I love going there on weekends to listen to the bands and play few slot machines. But now that they'd take the chairs in the tables away and you have to stand to watch the band I'll be going somewhere else
