Northern Lights Casino is a nice casino with a good variety of gaming. If I was writing the review based on this alone, I'd give 5 stars. Unfortunately the staff were helpful but didn't seem thrilled to be there, and the buffet food was not good. Go for the gaming and eat before you go.

We live in the local area and would like to eat at the casino buffet once in a while but every time we try the food is awful. Chicken always seems like it was yesterday's or older! Salad bar wilted and mushy items. Steak night yikes, hard to even eat at times. Why, why, why is it so difficult to... More

Gaming area is set up nicely and enough variety of machines but low payouts always and poor staff. Cleanliness is lacking.

We are visiting the area once again. We always stop at the snack bar in the casino for the wild rice soup. It is delicious.

This has got to be the worst slot club we have experienced in all the casinos we have been. We have been to many throughout our travels. Additionally, the other casinos in Minnesota are very generous, free slot play, great food offers and free hotel rooms.

During our recent vacation trip, we discovered this casino, basically by accident. We are not big gamblers, but we enjoyed a break from our travel - for an hour or so - at this modern casino. Not much to say except that it was enjoyable to play their slots in a friendly and clean environment.

The casino had friendly people working there. No complaints. They came around often and asked if we needed a drink. The line for the lunch counter was long so we left and ate elsewhere.
