Pinky thinks casino buffets should be open 24/7/365. Smoked Salmon and all the fixin's and 3 temperatures of standing prime rib roast should be available all the time. As in the case of Caulder Casino we have enjoyed the tropical gardens buffet, Mimi is an excellent server too, just had a great experience yesterday. Before leaving the area for the... More

The food is fresh and tasty but also an plus is the staff outside and inside. The price, however is higher than you have stated. If you do not have a free pass you will pay $16.-or $17, for the buffet. The service is so so. I go alone and am a woman so I am usually ignored. No question... More

My nephew and I had a few hours to spend before our flight out of Miami. We had spent a week in Key West. So we decided to play at Calder Casino. BIG MISTAKE! While we were at a machine, security came over to us to let us know that on their surveillance cameras they saw a robber kick the... More

The Florida gambling commission should do a thorough investigation of this casino. I have been to this casino twice in the last 6 months and can't believe the pay out is at the state requirements. It's the only casino I've ever been in that I didn't hear someone winning. It was $20 after $20 with little or no payback. Eventually... More

Best location ever. I could walk to Calder Casino if I wanted to or drive less than 1 minute away. The location is right off the turnpike.

This is the most hidden gem for a casino I know. The Tropical Gardens Buffet has gone through many permutations. The latest incarnation is by far the best deal for $14.99 you can get anywhere in the Tri-County area. Even if you don't go for the gambling and/or racing you can definitely enjoy the buffet. You will get a $2... More

I will be visiting Calder Casino every time I'm in that location, especially for the buffet dinner service. Very good price, variety of foods to choose from, friendly staff. Overall great place to dine with family and friends. Then enjoy your evening having fun in the casino.
