Nice, clean, easy to find location. Not crowed. We went on a rainy day. There were a lot of people playing poker. Not a lot on the slots.

It looks a whole lot better from the outside than it does on the inside. It's dark, dreary, and has low ceilings. The vibe is very old school and it's probably best suited for locals not tourists, there are much better choices in the area. They had a band playing some 70's music and there were some seniors dancing on... More

I actually only go to play the slots although I know they have the restaurants, entertainment and other gaming. I go at least once a month just for the fun of it.

Not a nice place it's dark with an unappealing vibe. A lot machines and a poker room and some bar. Waitresses are friendly that's about the only appeal. I wouldn't go back

The essence of greyhound racing ended 20 years ago, and it's not unusual to see only 30-40 people in the entire grandstand. Most attendees are low-class people, and the place is often filled with nursing home people bussed in. Restaurants are only average. Slot machines filled with older women smoking cigarettes. Poker room has "regulars" which makes sitting down risky... More

Small casino but very clean and currently under renovation. We were here to see the greyhounds race. The race is actually quite exciting it is too bad that there ere not many people in the bandstand to view the race as the crowd can make this more exciting.

Go check it out. Besides the casino with slots and poker, there are events to enjoy. Parking is fairly easy. When they have fireworks, they are great. Don't go inside...just watch them from your car in the parking lot.

If you want to spend your time and money in a fun and productive way, this is NOT the place to go. The food in the French Quarter restaurant is barely edible.
