Drove 15 miles to Red Hawk and had a very enjoyable meal at Henry's Steakhouse, this was my first visit and I was impressed with the food and service. They even have a smoke free floor of gambling which was nice.

The smell old old cigarette smoke was overwhelming. The buffet food was okay, some items dried out, but okay. But old smoke smell detracted from food and gaming experience
