Enjoyed this casino. Cleaner but dated. Staff friendly drink service was good. Daughter ate nachos from snack bar and said they were ok. Have been 3 times in two weeks and have won some on each trip.

I was very disappointed, to crowded and very smelly. I felt it was a rip off. Had trouble with the slots machines working.

Nice time. Ate in a snack bar. Should have had the buffet. Pleasant people. Don't care for the smoke smell.

Went to the restaurant just inside the front door that had the best chicken and sausage gumbo, it is definitely a must have. Went to bar after for drinks, had a martini which was very yummy.

Food was alright. Prime rib was only served med to well hence overcooked. Piano music was really nice. Beautiful view of the river.

Easy access with ample parking. The boat is clean and has a large number of slot machines. There are ample table games. Restrooms are clean. The restaurants are very nice. Would recommend visiting.

No. Smoking is permitted on all 3 levels as far as I can recall, but there may be a nonsmoking area on one or more levels. I'm not sure.
