  • this is a no frills casino, food is okay, drinks taste slightly watered down and be ready for all the noise 
  • Empire Casino is the better of the two State run casinos in the New York City area. The staff is more friendly than Resorts and the their dinning options are a lot better. However as Resorts the slots...  more »
  • Typical casino except no real dealers. All games are either machines or computer operated. And since it's run by the state you have a lower percentage of winners. Take my advice. If you want to gamble...  more »

  • I love the horses and am baffled that anyone could prefer the slots over a live product. You have world-class harness racing here, sporting the best driving colony in North America. Convert the track into a 5/8, to prevent speed from dominating, and you will get 5 stars from me! Race secretaries need to wake up and understand how race movement excites fans, not fast times and line-up numbers. Nevertheless, the large purses have created a highly competitive environment.
  • Always meet nice people. Great entertainment. ....very good food. Nice place to hang out.
  • My husband and I came to the buffet at Empire Terrace on Saturday 9/3 -$19/$25 plus tax and tip ,drinks separate, it was TERRIFIC ! the Food, staff and atmosphere was Great. We hope the casino did well , and will offer the buffet again.it was pretty filled up just like the old days in that room It was well worth it and we had a fun time playing and watching the races. It would be wonderful if you offered this deal during the Sunday day races later in the year. Again everything was TERRIFIC ! Thanks for a great evening .
  • I enjoy visiting Empire. I appreciate the complimentary van ran from the parking lot to the front door of the Casino. The frozen Margaritas are amazing and affordable. Great assortment of slot machines however management must do better with fixing the non working bets on the machines! Also management MUST hire more staff to assist when our machines malfunction. Its aggravating and time consuming waiting 25 minutes for a staff member to address an issue with my machine that malfunctioned. Overall I recommend Empire Casino as a fun and affordable venue to visit for a few hours of gambling entertainment!
  • In all the years I've been playing there I only won once or twice. It looks like the machines are fixed to take but not to give. From now on I'll take a longer trip to Resorts in Queens to play. It has to be better than Empire City. Any place has to be better in their pay outs.
