The one in in CT is much, much larger & had more great decorative features. Otherwise, this was nice & we would come back again. It is in... More

We had a nice evening here, even though we didn't leave as winners. There's a good-sized non-smoking section with a larger than average selection of slots. It was easy to navigate and find a machine to play even though it was a busy Saturday night. Everyone on staff was pretty helpful and friendly. Worth a visit if visiting casinos is... More

Visited the casino as stayed in the area. I am not a gambler - can play a bit here and there. Loved that they have a non-smoking area so that you don't come out of the casino feeling like you need to literally throw all your clothes and yourself 😜 into the washing machine. There are a few restaurants as... More

Like every other casino. Mostly smoky with very small non-smoking areas. There didn't seem to be music or acts. I don't know if they have musicians come in. Limited space to sit and have a drink. Central bar was packed. A couple other areas looked like closed lounges. Had a good pub meal at Louie's Bar and could watch sports.... More

Service, food quality, value and service is good at Rustic Kitchen, Bar Louie and Wolfgang Puck. Generally but not always good at Johnny Rocket. Buffet service is terrible, caused by high turnover and poor training of staff.

Cool place to visit, if your not a gambler there are restaurants, stores and bars...some very pricey for drinks so watch where you go. Happy hour for drinks is your best deal.
