Description:

River Spirit Casino Resort has brought a little slice of paradise to Tulsa...

River Spirit Casino Resort has brought a little slice of paradise to Tulsa with Margaritaville Casino & Restaurant, which opened in 2016. The addition of this new casino means River Spirit now has two casinos in one, each with its own distinctive atmosphere and décor. With over 3,000 high-tech electronic machines, numerous poker tables and table games, River Spirit Casino and Margaritaville Casino are the destination of choice for casino excitement. Guests can enjoy several dining and entertainment venues including Visions Buffet, Johnny Rockets - The Original Hamburger, Scoreboard Sports Bar, 5 o'Clock Somewhere Bar, and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville restaurant. Ruth's Chris Steak House, the latest culinary addition to our growing portfolio of exciting restaurant offerings, is scheduled to open in early 2017. River Spirit Casino Resort is adding luxurious 483-room hotel, retail shops, a 30,000 square foot convention and meeting center, a 2,500+ seat showroom theater for live entertainment and sporting events. Additional casino amenities include non-smoking gaming areas and a high-stakes room.

The new Margaritaville area of the casino is bright, festive and fun. However, with the remodel there was a perfect opportunity for this casino to compete with the Cherokee Hard Rock Casino in the nonsmoking department. They failed. The so-called nonsmoking section is not well marked; it is not isolated from the smoking section; and from what I can tell,... More

My husband works nights so we tend to go out later at night. We went out last weekend and were enjoying the new improvements. My husband was jumped by 2 guys in the restroom. They were after his casino voucher. Once security intervened, they took the voucher and split it between my husband and the other guys. Afterwards, my husband... More

My wife and I enjoy coming in on Sunday nights. The casino is trying to make improvements by adding more entertainment venues within the casino. We live in midtown and are looking forward to the Ruth Chris steakhouse and Margaritaville. I can't help to believe they are trying to market to a more affluent clientele by doing these improvements.

I come here several times a year. I gamble a lot, and I have found the machines here slightly looser than those at Riverwind in Norman. (I must caution other reviewers that you never go to a Casino to make money-you simply hope to hang around for awhile without loosing heavily.) The atmosphere is remarkedly smoke-free, and the food was... More

We used to go to River Spirit on a weekly basis because we had food and slot comps and we live relatively close. But since the opening of the current casino we watched the service deteriorate.
