Large, well designed, on the river front, with convenient safe and free parking, what's not to like. Visited on a Saturday afternoon in November after visiting the Christmas market at city hall. Just a ten minute drive down Spring Garden street and a left on Delaware Avenue. Safe clean and large and the restaurant has a view of the river.... More

I haven't been to Sugar House for a couple years but I found some big changes. First of all the good they change the interior and it's a much nicer place that used to be. Secondly the bad, it's kind of easy to get there from 676 but just try getting back to the Schuykill. There's no signage or anything... More

First time visitor – – they greet you with some slot play, and even a coupon for a $10 lunch. Not bad – – unfortunately, machines seemed a little tight, as there were no winnings. Nice casino – – mostly new!

It's not Vegas or even Atlantic City. Just about the same as any mid quality casino. I like to go to casinos if possible in every town I visit but haven't been for about 6 months. I understand games change and styles change, but I found the machines to all be almost the same. Some variation of the old triple... More
