This was our first visit here, we're not big gamblers but when I saw the Ellen Show Game I was hooked! The people that worked there were very nice and helpful. There is a non smokers game room but is a lot smaller than the regular and didn't see too much there. We're not smokers so for non smokers this...

I enjoyed my one night visit to the casino. I'd say its a bit on the smaller side but it had an adequate amount of table games and slots available. The casino area is laid out nice where everything is in the center and restrooms, food/bars are on the outside. They seemed to do a good job of controlling the...

We ate at the Sports Bar restaurant tonight because the buffet was closed. We have eaten at the Sports Bar before and with each return visit both the service and food quality seemed to go downhill. When it first opened we were very happy with the quality of the food and service. What promoted me to write this review was...

Reuqested a handicap room but to my surprise, it was on the fourth level of several floors. Had to take two elevator to get my room. Did not like that.

Went here first on a very busy Saturday and joined their players club, really good sign up promos and it wasn`t too smoky especially considering the number of people in there. Went again on the Sunday and lost all that we`d won on the previous day!
