We enjoyed visiting this casino to see The Frontmen in concert. They were very good and entertaining. It was worth the trip to this casino. For gambling, it is a very small casino. Very little parking also. Drinks were cheap and we had a good...More

This place was totally depressing. Even driving the ghost town streets to get there on a summer night made me feel like I was the last soul on Earth. Limited slots, a good band playing to a totally empty room, and then, they tell you...More

This casino does offer electrical hook-ups for clients visiting in RVs at a reasonable price, but the offerings within the casino are very limited. Ample slots, but few table games and the "restaurant" in the casino is mostly a sandwich bar with a soup and...More

Wow! We stopped here during a trip to Traverse City, the bingo had 9 people playing, there were 7 people playing table games, and maybe 20 playing slots. It was Friday night, everyone seemed sad. This place has really gone down hill. This is probably...More

Terrible terrible casino....couldn't get waited on while donating my money (did not see 1 single slot payoff) the entire evening. Save your money....to me this is clearly a training center for employees because it sure was terrible at being a casino

This is the second worst casino facility I've visited in my lifetime. What a dump. Be prepared for a po-dunk, cigarette-smoke-infested, unprofessional time. Creepy atmosphere reminiscent of a cheap wedding banquet hall with the decor and the furniture to match. Don't bother going here unless...More
