What a disappointment. Previous visits were excellent and gave high praise to the New York strip steak. This time, new menu, no NY strip steak. Nothing of note looked good on this "new" menu. I tried the replacement rib eye - bummer, grisly and tough. My grandson had the sirloin - double bummer. Tough, tough, tough. They other four in... More

Our group was looking for a place were we could get together with all of our families and friends and celebrate. The Bowling Alley and Pizza was the perfect place. We all enjoyed a great time. We has attendees of all ages from preschool through elderly. We had a great time.

Although I'm not much of a gambler, this place is a lot of fun. All the restaurants offer good food with excellent service. They also have great entertainment on many occasions, a friendly staff, and an efficient ventilation system for those like me who don't like second hand smoke. Definitely a classy casino.

Smoke-free 1st floor where Families can bowl / play arcade / watch XL TV screens / eat / enticed me to stop. 2nd Floor is Casino & Buffet. 3rd Floor is Seven Sisters Restaurant. The atmosphere was nice & the decor was attractive but not over the top. Employees were actively friendly & helpful. The Hotel is a separate building... More

My family visited Black Oak Casino on 11/26/16 to have what we thought we be a nice lunch and a fun time visiting the bowling alley. During the course of our lunch at the Black Oak Cafe my wife and I noticed our young child not wanting to eat her chicken finger. She then stated, "this chicken tastes funny". We... More

Went with friends to the sports bar and bowling alley at Black Oak Casino. The Mill is the name of the sports bar. We had a good time and the food was pretty good. On Saturday evening they do cosmic bowling, which is always a hit with the kids. The cigarette smoke from the casino tends to drift down the... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night during a Newmarket Golden West tour of the USA and were left a tad disappointed. Yes the rooms are big and comfy but the décor could do with updating (walls appear to have been painted over with no repair to bad plaster). It is in a fairly remote location and it is... More

We played the free "come-on" money and had a good time on the slots. We even got to keep some cash we won along the way. Our second night they had a free "concert" in their small theater in the back of the casino. The country/bluegrass singer turned out to be very enjoyable we stayed till the end of the... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant and this we were the guests of close friends. The restaurant is well appointed and has good ambience. The waitstaff have been trained, almost to the point that they seem to be following a script and they do not seem to be comfortable or natural. They are however, pleasant in a sort... More
