I had heard that small casinos were not friendly places. The Grand Victoria Casino was a pleasant surprise. Dealers are very friendly, multitude of games and tables. The GVC also sponsors a summer concert series that's loads of fun. The food there is very good...More

Food here at all the restaurants is great here. The experience is inviting. The entire staff from waitresses to dealers is amazing! I'd choose here before going to any other local riverboat!

If you are in the mood to gamble this is an option. This casino is a MGM property. Variety of gambling options.

This casino is about average - no fun club or anything at this one- so I would say I've been to better. It gets pretty crowded on the weekends and you can hardly even find a spot to play.

Great place to relax. A lot of free parking. And if you don't wish to play, spend money you can always go for a walk along the Fox River towards downtown. Very pretty walk.

1-2 no limit with a $7.00 per hand drop, plus $1.00 jackpot drop plus a $1.00 toke to the dealer takes $9.00 off the table every hand. Do the math. 9 guys with $200.00 each will all be busted in a few hours.

Had a good time playing video poker. Since we visited on Friday night I really enjoyed the band's music, but way too loud.

As far as I know there are no age restrictions in the restaurants. I did read that anyone over 2 year sold is charged full price for the buffet.
