It has a decent number of slots and table games. But It's small Casino. Some areas, there is no room to pass through between the Blackjack table next to the slot machine on weekends when they are most busy. They have a few restaurants; Prime Burger House, Buckinghams and Indulge Buffet. I have been to all of these restaurants and... More

Been here a few times now. Nice and large room always seems to have plenty of games going. Staff seems friendly. You can call ahead to be put on waiting list. I recommend doing that. Overall a nice night out.

We used to go a lot to the budget at GVC but the buffet price is out our reach for anything more than a once a year occasion. So we don't go to casino either anymore. 😕

Went Last night it was some March madness raffle night. As info...avoid on these types of "giveaway" nights as the casino tightens up the slots. Biggest clue was...sat down and saw ominious message on a machine....Listen up folks..."machine being configured" was flashed across in a blue box where the reel graphics are. This means their machines are hooked up to... More

I visit the Grand Victoria casino quite regularly. The staff is very friendly and professional. I feel welcomed and important when I go to GVC. From the security personnel to the cage workers to the wait staff to the poker dealers everyone is warm and welcoming and makes me feel important. Because I frequent the poker room mostly the dealers... More

Machines are crammed in. Hard to squeeze between aisles because the chairs are almost back to back. If they were smart they'd put more machines on the 2nd level.

Food is good and they have a big selection, but the prices have drastically gone up over the last few years. On a weeknight you will spend $20.00 per person and forget trying to go on a weekend, Saturday it is $30.00 per person and Sunday is $35.00 per person. I guess they figure if you can afford to lose... More

As far as casinos go this place is pretty good. It has quite a few of the more popular games as well. The best part is that the casino is smoke free unlike all those Indian places. I have had the Buffet a couple of times and it was very good. It's also not That expensive for all the choices... More
