We went here specifiacally for the buffet, it is around $25 and you get 1 lobster tail and unlimited crab legs. Plus all the other fixings that you would normally find in a buffet. The food was good for a buffet. The gambling not so much. As is the case when you play the house.

We had offers from our Sept visit but they expired within one week of receipt. Not very enticing for the patron who has to travel long distances! The casino is clean and looks like... More

OK, so it is all about The Buffet - the in house restaurant. Go to the casino, get a players card, play a bit (an hour), go back to the cashier and get a coupon for a free meal. Now the art. you want to use the coupon for a dinner. It is a great choice. On Mondays and Wednesdays,... More

It's a players place. Great buffet. Needs more options to eat after 10 and always need more blackjack tables. Drinks are there every 30 minutes. Only play and eat there, until their rooms are ready, then I will stay there!!!!

Well let's just say there is no hope for you. Tons of options. The casino is nice. Always clean inside. Only downfall we just wish they had... More
