  • I am a poker player. I was visiting from out of state. Won't be back. Redicoulous rake of 7.00 per hand and 1.00 jackpot drop. Add a toke and it's $9.00 off the table every hand! No food service. Floor people seen board out of their mind. Memo to casino: The only game in town mentality always comes back to bite you.
  • What happened to the food and service here? The food are salty and hardly any service to help clear the table. Some lady trying to claim our table when our receipt was on the clip. The food tastes like it was from frozen dinners. I thought casinos would have quality food. Might as well go to a Chinese buffet is cheaper and better. Really disappointed.
  • Waste of time and money. Service was horrible. Prices online did not match what we were charged and Shift Manager Pam was rude and could have cared less. She basically told me she would inform the IT Dept. and walked away. We ended up paying $29.99 for mediocre food. The brisket was rock hard and black and the garlic bread sticks were so rock hard I took a video, the noise rivals that of a toddler on a drum set. Their 'Special', the prime rib, was no better than any other run of the mill buffet. The food selections in general were terrible for $30!! I should have known better when 90% of the seats were empty at 6:30 PM on a Saturday. Worst Dining experience of my life! Don't waste your time or money!!!
  • I WAS THERE SATURDAY 6/4/2016 TO CELEBRATE MY WIFE'S BIRTHDAY. THOUGHT THEY HAD CRAB LEGS. BUT THEY ONLY DO THAT ON FRIDAY. THE FOOD WAS JUST TERRIBLE. PRIME RIB WAS CHEWY, AND VERY FATTY, DIDN'T EVEN TASTE LIKE PRIME RIB. NOT MUCH FOOD TO CHOOSE FROM UNLESS YOU WANT SALAD OR FRUIT. AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE SERVING CENTER ARE ALL PRETTY MUCH RUDE. ESPECIALLY THE ONE SERVING SOME TYPE OF SHRIMP. I TOLD HER THE TINY SHRIMP IN THE BOWL LOOK LIKE THEY STILL MAY BE RAW, AND IN A RUDE MANNER SHE SAID THEY ARE FULLY COOKED SIRRRRRR. BS I WILL NOT PAY THAT KINDA MONEY FOR THE CRAPPY FOOD AND ATTITUDES EVER AGAIN. ONLY THE GIRL TAKING THE DIRTY PLATES WAS NICE.
  • I am not a gambler, but the three restaurants inside, Prime, Buckinghams, and the buffet are all very good, I especially enjoy the lobster grilled cheese at Prime, and the new York strip at Buckinghams is awsome.
